  1. This looks like quite a challenge.. HMS Unicorn goes under the microscope for preservation project ..... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-tayside-central-56818539 "HMS Unicorn is the oldest ship in Scotland and one of the six oldest ships in the world. The 46-gun frigate was built during peacetime and launched in 1824, spending its early life in reserve, anchored on the River Medway. HMS Unicorn was moved to Dundee in 1873 to become a training ship for the Royal Navy Reserves. It was almost scrapped in the early 1960s when Earl Grey Dock was filled in as part of preparatory work for the Tay Road Bridge. After its move to Victoria Dock, the vessel was handed over to the Unicorn Preservation Society in 1968, and opened to the public in 1975." Richard
  2. Hi everyone, I’ve been semi-active on the site for a while now but this is actually my first build log. I’ve previously completed one prior build, Endeavour’s Longboat. Onward as they say. I’ve selected Chatham Yacht as a level up in complexity. I’m attaching some initial kit photos for reference. Scott
  3. Hello everyone My name is John and although I’ve been a member for a few months now I’ve been lurking in the background and checking out all the kit builds. I’ve been modelling for many years, mostly plastic and resin kits. I did have a bash at a wooden kit, the Del Prado Bounty, when it was published. Got as far as completing the first planking but then had to put it aside and when I went back to it most of the remaining parts had warped. So time to start again. After looking at the available kits I decided to go with Caldercraft. They seem to have a good reputation and I like the idea of having a number of contemporary models available all to the same scale. I was thinking of one of the smaller and to be honest cheaper models (under £100) just in case I make a real hash of it. That brings the list down to Ballahoo, Chatham, Convulsion or Sherbourne. With no real preferences amongst those it came down to Chatham simply because I picked up an unstarted kit for a little over £50 on EBay. I appreciate that smaller doesn’t necessarily mean easier but I think this is the right approach for me. I haven’t been able to find any build logs here for Chatham so I’ve decided to start one. It is a bit nerve wracking going public as there are many super modellers here and I’ve no idea how this is going to turn out (or how long it will take). So here we go. No doubt I’ll have plenty of stupid questions along the way so any help and guidance would be much appreciated. First step – I’ve checked that everything is there (which it is) and I’m now resisting the urge to get stuck in and instead am having a good study of the plans and the rather flimsy instruction booklet.
