  1. It has come to pass that I am to join the august company of the scratch builders on this forum. I stand in amazement of the skill and craftsmanship here. Humbly I begin my maiden scratch building adventure. Please give me truthful feedback on this adventure, I hope to improve my skills along the way. This build is associated with the group build project of the Ship Model Society of New Jersey. I have been keeping my eye on this project since I joined MSW, and I am very excited to participate. First, let us see the beautiful timbering package from Hobby Mill:
  2. I have been chatting with John (tarbrush) about whether or not to do a scratch build log of the Mary Rose, which I fancied doing as a cross section.... so here goes... my first attempt at a blog. A bit of background first. I saw MR towed in to dock after she was raised, and have been fascinated ever since. We get random tv programmes about how they found it etc, but what finally got me going was a volume on the MR weapons I found at Leeds armouries...'weapons of warre' which was closely followed by buying 'Mary Rose, Your Noblest Shippe'... (best £50 I ever spent on a ship book!) T
  3. This build was supposed to happen with my grand-son on my knee but alas it is not to be. Eight weeks early, he was with us for just a moment. So this is for him. For those in Australia who are looking for a good wood supplier you need go no further than Hobby Mill in the US. The quality of the wood is fantastic and as you can see from the pic it arrives well sign posted and packaged. A testament to Jeff and Greg. Importantly the wood sailed through Australian quarantine requirements. Never an easy exercise! The build started somewhat inauspiciously with your
  4. Hi all, was recently pointed to this site and came looking for some company I've lost at least 2 days of work crawling through build logs and the finished models so joining and posting my own build log may mean dire things for my future employment. Anyway, as the title says I'm working on an HMS Victory cross section kit from Corel. To date I've only completed one kit, the Union from Constructo, a solid hull build. I have two others on hold that I started and hung up when I hit snags on the difficulty level (read that as I am a total novice when it comes to working with wood and it's been
  5. Today I received the san Francisco hull section kit the instructions look very nice as do the parts. The only thing so Farsi the planking, it is very thin so I may replace it. When I figure out how to add pictures I will.
  6. I' ll try to repost some of the pictures of this kit (that is near the end) I'll put just some informations from what i remember "Built in Havana in 1769, Santisima Trinidad carried 120 guns on three decks. Badly damaged in the battle of Cape St. Vincent in 1799, she was rebuilt with the addition of a fourth deck and the number of cannon increased to 136, making her the largest ship of her time. In 1805, she sailed into the Battle of Trafalgar with a crew of 1,048 men and her immense 4-decked sides showing the barrels of her formidable guns. The British disabled and captured her during the b
  7. Hi. I am just getting into CAD modeling and I have Solidworks ver 2005. I am learning the very basics at the moment. Not easy at when your over 60. The purpose of learning this is I want to do a very detailed cross section of the Victory. My question is... Is there anyone else out there using Solidworks ?? I have found a few very good Utube starter videos. Any advice apart from telling me to change software is welcome (as I already own Solidworks the cost will kill the project). Many thanks Antony.
  8. This will be an abbreviated log up to where I am now with my build. Here it is right out of the box. Starting to put the frame together. Closeup of the first error with the kit. There pre-cut spacers for the frames and the kit included not enough long spacers and too many short spacers. So this is my solution. Here I am assembling the deck beams. A shot of the assembled frames and deck beams. Note: If I was to do this over I would have not followed the directions and would have completed the the internal part of the model from the hold up. There was limited spac
  9. Hi With the Corel Victory cross section almost completed we ( me and my son ) decided to start on this build. I will bash the kit as and when we come to it. Lots of little things as far as I can see. We started by removing the frames from the laser cut boards. some boards were distorted a little but this is not cause for concern. a very sharp knife was used for this cutting both sides of the board. We then sanded most of the charring from the frames with a nail board. made easy work of the charring. All the frames were offered together and with minimum sanding to make a per
  10. Hi This if my first build log ever... I will try and get it right. I liked Erebus and Terror build log on the Victory so I decided that this was the ship for me. A link to his Build... and very nice it is Erebus and Terror build log This ship is going to be a preasent for my daughter. First pic is Adding the Riders. One fitted more work on the other yet. Making the upper riders and the pump and well First deck done Thats it for now..will post the rest tonight. Regards Antony
