    Period model ships. Primarily British (Trafalgar), US (Revolution) war. Also like work boats, e.g. Whalers, China Tea Clippers, etc. I really enjoy "How Too" posts. As a retiree just getting into this, I appreciate seeing how others achieve results with measuring, cutting, gluing and painting etc. I visit a lot of nautical museums and I think by now I've purchase every DVD, CD and book but there's no substitute for experience. I'm currently working on the Model Shipways Charles Morgan. I've been on it, the, Constellation, Constitution, Cutty Sark (now gone), and HMS Victory many times and have many photos. Also, I found quite a few folks who have built the Morgan and posted a lot of detailed construction. Many. many thanks to all of them. I find these post do a lot to boost my confidence and motivate my next steps. Bob

  1. David, absolutely superb! I am attempting the same kit and have adopted your coining of "frustifaction" into my daily lexicon. I often refer to your photos for inspiration and as a benchmark. Thank you for sharing. Bob M
  2. Hello all! Thank you so much for all of your replies. After reading your assessments, I feel more confident that it is some king of "anvil" for all of the reasons you provided. I think I am going to scratch build it as accurately as I can and add it to the deck components on my Morgan. It will certainly be a good conversation starter. Hope everyone is well and staying safe. Best regards, Bob Meli
  3. Hello all. I hope everyone is staying safe. Thank goodness I have my hobby to pass the time and remain indoors. This is from a photo of the C. W. Morgan. I am trying to find out what the deck item next to the Tryworks is called and what it was used for. It has a rusty "T" shape metal fitting on top. It appears that it could have been an anvil but I am not certain. Best wishes to all, Thank you Bob
  4. Could anyone identify what the object with the rusty metal “T" shape is on the deck next to the Tryworks  and what it was used for?
