After five years working on full-scale shipbuilding projects, two home moves, and with a reduced level of shipbuilding consulting work I now find time to return to ship modeling.  Over the past few years I have enjoyed this opportunity to work on a wide variety of naval destroyer, naval auxiliary, icebreaking, research, and commercial shipbuilding projects and with a number of industry professionals.

 

My loving wife Linda, our two dogs, and I are now located in the beautiful retirement community Sun City Shadow Hills in Indio, CA.  My ship models made the two moves without damage and I have recently completed set up of a small ship model shop in the garage.  Ship model projects planned for the near future include:

  • Steam Tug Seguin of 1884 – new build based on ¼” scale Bluejacket kit
  • Brigantine Newsboy of 1854 – complete 3/16” scale semi-scratch build
  • 16 Gun Brig Fair American, circa 1780 – complete ¼” scale build based on MS kit
  • Whaling Brig Kate Cory of 1856 – new build based on 3/16” scale MS kit

 

As these projects get underway, I plan to develop/restart build logs here on Model Ship World.

 

Regards from the shipyard,

Pete Jaquith

I have recently completed installation of a work bench, peg boards, lighting, and unpacked ~12 boxes of tools.  I also installed an evaporative cooler, or swamp cooler to control garage/shop temps when it is 100-115 degrees outside.

After an inquire on my ship modeling projects, I thought it best that I provide an update on my ship modeling plans.

 

My loving wife Linda, our two dogs, and I are now located in the beautiful retirement community Sun City Shadow Hills in Indio, CA.  My ship models made the two moves without damage and I have recently completed set up of a ship model shop in the garage.  Once my garage cools off, ship model projects planned for the future include:

  • Steam Tug Seguin of 1884 – new build based on ¼” scale Bluejacket kit
  • Brigantine Newsboy of 1854 – complete 3/16” scale semi-scratch build
  • 16 Gun Brig Fair American, circa 1780 – complete ¼” scale build based on MS kit
  • Whaling Brig Kate Cory of 1856 – new build based on 3/16” scale MS kit

Pete
