  1. Tiger, Iโ€™m glad others might be able to be of some value from our work. In the same way, I hope to benefit from others for my next build. Thatโ€™s the real beauty of MSW logs - what goes around, comes around. I hope your build goes smoothly. ๐Ÿ˜Ž Paul
  2. Is it possible to use chemical aging by applying Metal Black with a Q-tip or brush after the copper is applied? I would not want to have the glue run or loosen the plates,
  3. I wonder why the included instruction manuals still favor carving the bulwarks and refer to cutting them off only as an option? Is it perhaps just left over from another age?? It seems that the carving machines could be easily refigured or else perhaps they made a big run some time ago and have a big stock.
  4. Thank you Jaager and Betaqdave, I believe you have laid a good case for cutting the bulwarks off. I was somewhat hesitant to do this as it seemed drastic and definite. Do either of you or does anyone in the community have a copy of the articles Betaqdave mentioned who could make me a copy since I am sure they are no longer in print? I would also be willing to purchase a copy of the magazines. Thanks again for your help as I will probably cut them off.
  5. I am considering building the Model Shipways Kate Cory. I have looked at a number of logs and Model Shipways model ship instructions and practicums and find two approaches to carving. They are to either leave the bulwarks on and carve away or cut them off at the start and add them later. The practicum on the Sultana is fairly clear that the bulwarks on the raw hull should be taken off. The Kate Cory instructions say cutting bulwarks off is an option. The Phantom, Dapper Tom and Elsie don't seem to mention an option. My question is this, from experienced solid hull builders, what is the eas
  6. Yes they are. I have the Kate Cory which had a badly milled solid hull which they just replaced. This probably will be my next build especially since it was given to me by my son-in-law. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  7. I want to thank everyone who looked in on this build as your comments and encouragements were greatly appreciated. I want to especially thank Arthur for his help as we both moved through this build. I also appreciate Chuck letting me use his friezes to replace the photo etches. This has been a fun and valuable learning journey for my first POB build. I want to encourage other beginners to try this boat or Chuck's Longboat as you can finish them in reasonable time and learn much. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  8. 18th Century Armed Longboat - Model Shipways - Started build March 17, 2019 and finished July 14, 2019 . The kit was modified using ideas from the Medway Longboat (1742) plank on frame group project started by Chuck Passaro. This build was POB.
