  1. I’m taking a break from the Victory and building the Prince de Neufchatel from plans in American Sailing Ships by Howard I. Chapelle. So far I’ve traced the hull lines and resized them to 1/72 scale.
  2. Hello Everyone, Here begins my build log for my Prince de Neufchatel. I've had this one waiting in the wings for a while, and now its number has come up. It's very early in my build and as you'll see below, my pictures aren't very interesting yet. However I have already encountered some dilemmas. I was never sure why this kit was discontinued as I think it's a particularly beautiful and interesting ship, but I am now beginning to believe that the kit needed a major design overhaul and rather than do that, they simply discontinued it. The instructions suggest that the fi
  3. I will begin by explaining my choice of this kit. As some of you may be aware from my posts in other logs, I have really been taken by the barque Stefano kit from Marisstella. I decided, however, that I am no longer capable of, nor willing to commit to, such a large, complex multi-year build with endless rigging. My age (78) and diminishing dexterity in my hands, just seemed to rule out such a project. When I started Halifax, I had pretty much decided to go with smaller vessels in larger scales, but upon looking around for my next project, I couldn't really find anything that I wanted to do th
  4. I picked up this kit second hand and thought it would provide lots of fun and challenge. Although it is no longer available from Model Expo there are 4 or 5 build logs here on MSW. The PdN is also the subject of a book by Philip Reed - Period Ship Modelmaking - An Illustrated Masterclass. I'll dispense with the kit contents photos as you can find them on other build logs. Wish me luck - I think I can use it!
  5. Hi everyone, new guy here, my name is Joe. I've been lurking for about a month and thought it was time to post the build log of my 95% completed Model Shipways Prince De Neufchatel. This is my fourth wooden ship build, with MS "Elsie", Mamoli "Portsmouth" and Corel "Unicorn" being the others. I started this way back in 2000, and it has languished off and on in my attic while I've built plastic aircraft models and such. I've been re-energized to complete it and have accomplished a lot over the last few months. Since I haven't completed a build since 2000 my wooden ship skills are a bit rus
  6. Well then... haven't been on in a couple of months and have found that, well, everything is toast. Sad. But not to beat the already dead horse i'm going to ask you all before reuploading pictures. Should I go back and repost what I have done, or just pick up where i left off? My gut is telling me everything up till now, as to restore some posterity. it's just a coupl of years worth of stuff, and I hope I remeber it all enough to do it justice. With that said, welcome back everybody!
  7. This space is reserved for me to repost/rewrite my build log from when I picked the hobby back up in 2011 and started to fix errors on my Prince de Neufchatel (PdN) that I had stopped working on in 2006. This log will pick up with a completed hull that had gunports in the wrong positions and poorly planked bulwarks.
