  1. Thanks, Dave I do appreciate your very kind words very much, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  2. Hello Ship Mates Once again I thank you very much for all of your visits to my build log on the little ship the Oliver Cromwell. Also for your very kind words and nice comments. Back in the Old Ship Yard the little fellows and I have been rather busy these last few days. We have added the Center King Plank to the full length of the Lower Deck, again these still need to be tapered as soon as the rest of the decking is applied. We have added another 4 Led Lamps to this Lower Platform Deck area along with the one that we installed in the Lantern Window for the Magazine. We have built and installed the Coamings for the Lader Way to the Magazine area and also for the lower Cargo Hatch. We have built and added the Mast Partners for all of the three-mast. Last but not least, we have built the set of Steps to the Lower Platform Magazine area. This was rather a fun little job to do, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  3. Hello Dennis Thank you very much for your visit to my build log. Also for your very kind words and kind comments. Yes, she is slowly coming together, but things should start getting a bit more interesting as we start to work on the lower deck, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  4. Hello Ship Mates Thanks for all of your visits to my build log. Also for your very kind words and nice comments. Back in the Old Ship Yard the little fellows and I have finished building the Waterways and we have installed them. We have also built and installed the Spirkettings or the Upper side of the Waterways. They still need to be tapered on there edges a bit but I will do that as the Lower Deck becomes planked. We are planning to add 4 little Led Lights to this Deck + the one that we installed in the Light Room Lamp Window. ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  5. Hello Kevin Thank you for your visit to my build log on the Oliver Cromwell. Also for your very kind words and nice comments. I do have a set of 6 sheets of the Oliver Cromwell that are rather nice and detailed. But then again Harold M Hahn did not include plans for working on the inside of the ship that I am doing. For these, I rely heavily on the two books that my Admiral gave me for Fathers Day last year. The Fully Framed Model via David Antscherl. These two kinds of ships are so very close that I can take a measurement or copy a part and it will fit my ship with little or no adjustments necessary, this is rather nice, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  6. Hello Ship Mates I do thank you all very much for all for all of your visits to my build log on the little ship the Oliver Cromwell. Also for your very kind words and very nice comments. Back in the Old Ship Yard the little fellows and I have cut out and fitted the Bow Book along with all of the Scarph Joints to complete the Water Ways on the Lower Deck along with a few extra. I was going to do these in a regular Scarph Joint but my Admiral preferred the Hooked Scarph Joint so this is what I have did. Just a little extra work on the mill but well worth it. Now I can glue these Water Ways in place but probably still have to edge bent a few but these are the easy ones, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  7. Hello Ship Mates Once again I thank you all very much for all of your visits to my build log. Also for your very kind words and nice comments. Back in the Old Ship Yard the little fellows and I have cleaned up the stern area of our ship and added a pair of Sleepers to reinforce the stern timbers. Now we must add a Led Light to the Magazine area while it is still accessible and then it will be time to add the Water Ways before we can plank this lower deck. We have spent a lot of time this week searching for the placement for the set of ladders from in back of the Pantry to the Great Room deck above. With a lot of help from my Ship Mates, we now have this figured out, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  8. Hello Patrick It sure is great for me to see that you have finally taken your Pandora down of the shelf, you sure have given me a lot of hints on how to build my Oliver Cromwell. I have spent the last couple of days trying to find out how to add the Ladder that leads from just in back of the Pantry up to the Great Room Deck. And here I look at your Pandora build and see that you have stacked these two Ladder Ways together. Thought that I may have had to cut into the Pantry to make room for the upper Ladder, but by doing that the little fellows may become hungry. Thanks very much. You never fail to amaze me on just how much detail you can add in such a little space and here I struggle with an even larger scale. I will follow this one with great interest, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  9. Hello Gerty It is nice to see you back in your Old Ship Yard once again. Great work on your Mast and Boom they sure do look great. The rigging is a whole new ball game so to speak. It is one of my favorites part of a build. I like to take one line at a time and try to understand how it works and why it is there. I found that this approach takes away a lot of the confusion that one getts at a first glance, Well Done, ENJOY Regards Lawrence
  10. Hello Mark I am very sorry to hear of your recent problems at your home, There is not a lot we can do to change these things and it is pleasing that you are able to return to your Old Ship Yard if only for a few minutes at a time. It sure is nice to see that you will return to do a bit of work on your Licorne, this ship sure has been a challenge for you. And it looks like you will finish her after all. Your Lazer cut boat sure does look good and well planned. This kind of build may be just what you need to get you back on your old self-track again. Wishing you all of our best wishes and thoughts, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  11. Hello Ship Mates Just a little update tonight. The little fellows and I have been working on the Stern of our little ship the Oliver Cromwell. We have built and installed the Crutch Aft of the Mizen Mast and also the two Wing Transom Knees. It is truly amazing that these little parts to our ship could eat up so many hours. We have also given them and also the Bread Room a coat of Tung Oil to give the Lower Deck a more finished look, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  12. Hello Piet Thank you very much for your visit to my build log, and also for your very kind words and comments. Welcome back, we missed you. Spring is just about here so I gather that you will be spending a bit more time outside enjoying the Great Outdoors. We have had rather an easy winter this year. That is up to Feb. and we had to pay up for all of the good previous days. Work continues on the Oliver Cromwell, so much detail and research between the Oliver Cromwell and the Swan Class type of ship that I have been following for the lower platforms decks, but that will change quite a bit as I move up to the upper decks, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  13. Hello Dave Thanks for your visit to my build log, and also for your very kind words. Yes, she is starting to come to life, a bit of detail sure makes a big difference. The next deck up will be even more so, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  14. Hello Ship Mates I thank you all very much for all of your visits to my build log on the little ship the Oliver Cromwell. Also for your very kind words and nice comments. Back in the Old Ship Yard the little fellows and I have added the Lower Deck Beams and also added the Lower Well that will contain the two Elm Hand Pumps that we have yet to build. We have also given the Platform Decks a coat of Tung Oil, to help clean up the building wood. We have noticed a few places where we must clean up some glue marks before we can plank the Lower Deck, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  15. Hello Denis I wish to congratulate you on such a very fine job you have done on building your T78 Norden. Just love all of that very fine detail that you have added to your ship, making her look so very realistic. She sure does look like her holes are full of fish and on her way home to market, WELL DONE, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
