  1. Two years ago, the Guild started selling the half hull kit, a project designed to include modelers who had no access to power tools. The purpose of the kit was to teach modelers how to plank a hull by spiling. The Guild has a new project, actually two projects, designed to expand your modeling skills and develop confidence in the step towards scratch building. As you know, the Guild’s logo is a capstan. Our next project is construction of a capstan, shown on its step, with a hatch and grating. The first project is designed for the builder whose only power tools are a Dremel-type rotary to
  2. I recently reviewed this kit over in the Reviews forum: 1:48 Double Capstan for HMS Winchelsea I discussed it with Chuck, and he felt this forum would be the best place to put my build log. First, a little background about why I am building this capstan even though I don't foresee building Winchelsea. Back in June of last year I posted an item about the capstan I built from scratch, for my Corel kit Resolution. I thought it was pretty decent and as good or better than a lot of kit provided or third party parts. ( I had actually upsiz
  3. I feel fortunate that I am able to be the first to show off this beautiful little kit from Chuck and the Syren Ship Model Company I know quite a few Winchelsea builders already have this, because I had to stand in line for a couple of weeks to get mine. Here is the no frills packaging ( I ordered one each of the cherry and Alaskan yellow cedar versions ) next to the comprehensive assembly instructions, available for download at Syren. Winnie Capstan Instructions Here is the cherry version spread out. The wood is as high quality as I have
  4. Hello, All. I've been searching for any plans/photos/schematics of a Hyde Windlass Company (HWC) hand capstan and windlass assembly. This would be sized for a 350-ton sailing merchant around 1890. The brigantine Galilee was launched in 1891 in California and seems to have been equipped with a Hyde capstan (see the photo below). Photo courtesy of the Department of Terrestrial Magnetism, Carnegie Institution, Washington DC (c. 1907) (The attire of the men is somewhat strange. The research crew's surgeon is on the right and his steward/surgical assistant is dressed for surger
  5. I'm contemplating Le Renard (AL) as my next build but am puzzled by one feature (or lack thereof). The anchor cables disappear into the hull at around deck level on the illustrations I've seen but there is no sign of a windlass or capstan on deck. As a cutter of around 68 tonnes would she have had a tween decks capstan? Crew seems to have been 60 so I guess that below decks space would have been at a premium with a rope locker and probably galley stove as well all situated at the fore end of the ship. Comments anyone? Rick
