  1. Under the General Product Discussions tab above and then "Downloads area for the Winnie Monograph Chapters" But here is a quick link right to the PDF file.... https://modelshipworld.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=640941 Steve
  2. That looks beautiful. I really like the contrast and those friezes really add some flair to the whole thing... Love your work....
  3. Just a quick update to mark the end of Chapter 3. I admit I was not looking forward to doing the pillars and the tops & bottoms to them, along with the roof rails, but everything turned out OK -- at least for me. Now it is time to clean up the shop to get ready for Chapter 4.
  4. Hello everyone. It's been a while since my last update so I thought I would take a little time to get that done. I finally got those window pillars done of the sides. They didn't turn out to bad - at least for me. I'm happy with them. I kind of like the blue windows. LOL I don't think I will keep them... I still have to finish up the pillars on the rear to finish that up. Then the rails on the roof to finish up Chapter 3.
  5. Hey Greg Welcome aboard. That's the same saw that I used for my bulkheads and other stuff. It works pretty good and I have had no issues. Make your cuts just outside the lines of your patterns and then sand down to the lines. It takes a little longer but the way it all fits together makes it well worth the time. Good luck and I look forward to your progress. Steve
  6. I'm still here and slowly chugging along. I guess I have been slow to post anything. I didn't realize how long it had been since my last post but here a few pics of where things stand as to today. I guess the only thing I'm having an issue with are the little pieces that go above the roof and also the upper and lower parts of the pillars. No matter how many I make I don't seem to find any I like, let alone try to make 12 of them that look similar. I'll get it sooner or later... Hope things are good in your part of the world. Also everyone else out there....
  7. Chapter 2 is now complete. I broke/ruined my fair share of planks but I think everything turned out pretty good. I preferred a little darker seams so I ran a pencil on both sides of the planks. Below are a few photos to show where we are currently. Now it is time for a small break and do a review of Chapter 3. It will be a nice change of pace from the planking for a while.... I hope everyone out there is doing good and dealing with this virus. These are indeed strange times but we will get thru it.....
  8. Hey Ben. I see you decided to do the framing on the other side. Everything looks really good. This is going to be a beautiful build. Keep up the great work....
  9. Hello everyone. I hope this post finds everyone happy & healthy and dealing with this virus OK. I think it has touched all of us in one way or another. I've been plugging along and got one side of the planking finished up yesterday. It turned out pretty good and I've learned some lessons to apply to the other side. Mostly pay more attention to my seams and the tick marks.... The paper clips are there to protect the stern frames. Yes, I snapped one off but thankfully it was a clean break so not a big issue. Those clips do a great job protecting them.
  10. Looking good Rusty -- I have to agree with nzreg & Chuck. I love the look of the Cherry and your planking looks great. Keep up the good work....
  11. Hello everyone: Another little update. I got the wales and black strake finished up and about 90% of the interior bulwarks sanded down to the correct thickness. I still need to get the anchor linings attached, painted,. Then I will finish up the interior bulwarks. Then I can use Chucks tick strips to line off the bulkheads and see how everything really lines up. I'm getting to the point I don't like my camera to much anymore (just my phone). It shows way too many of the little details I don't see or miss. I don't think you all will be seeing any close-up
