  1. Hello everyone, This will be my second build log on MSW, now for the Occre Corsair! I saw this kit selling for a very good price and decided to snag one while I could. This will be my first actual ship, since the other kits I have built have been much smaller boats. I think this kit will be a good intermediate level build, since it only has two masts and the build does not seem overly complicated. Looks like a good opportunity to try planking and rigging for a larger and more complex subject. Plus, as far as I can tell, it is a fictional ship so I do not have to worry about bei
  2. Hi all This will be my first build log of my first scratch build. As I was dreaming of scratchbuilding, about a decade ago (I’m getting old!!) I bought the “Progressive Scratch Building” CD set from seaways. It seemed to me at the time it was a good start to get into scratchbuilding (and it still does ) It contains the plans and information to build three ships, each one increasing in difficulty. The first one being the Bermuda boat Corsair. She was built in 1807 and designed for speed. She acted as an inter-island courier.
  3. Hello everyone. I started this build in October 2011 and finished it on 21 March 2012 The word Corsair means ‘Pirate’. Height 580 mm, Lenght 750mm, Width 270 mm. 
This originally merchant brigantine was transformed when it got into the hands of the corsairs, and fitted out with 16 cannons and 4 falconets, which all helped them to carry out their misdeeds with better chances of success. The corsair's "trade" was in many cases practiced with the permission of the state, giving them carte blanche for piracy. All the comment is lost in cyberspace so you
  4. Hi All! After a short break from building my last wood ship model (30 years) I decided it was time to take on a new project. My previous build was The Bluenose II by ARTESANIA LATINA (below) I bought the Bluenose kit in 1987 and built it over a couple years as a Christmas gift to my father. I had naively thought I would give it to him the year I bought it, but building took far longer than I had anticipated. Somehow this model managed to survive 30 years in a house with several cats. Only once did it hit the floor, breaking the bowsprit, which was almost impo
  5. Hi all, After a lifetime of building model railroads, model planes, cars, bikes and everything else, I've jumped into model ships. More of a return, having built a grand total of 1 ship 30 years ago, a Bluenose II. I remember buying the kit at a hobby show in Toronto in November of '87 and telling the vendor I intended to build it and give it to my father for Christmas. He said "This year?". He was right, he didn't get his ship for three years... Considering it's 25+ years old, it's stood up rather well, even survived a cat. Currently in Port Do
  6. Hello and welcome to my first build of my first wooden ship. I got the Corsair brigantine from my wife for an early birthday present. My wife was also kind enough to set up a place for me to work and get me starter tools. This is my first attempt in this hobby so I will have plenty of questions and hope to get lots of help. I eagerly look forward to any and all comments. Here is the box that came..... And here it is laid out to attempt a count Thanks for stopping by, David
  7. Hey guys, This is my first wooden ship model kit and log so I hope this turn out good There will be some mistakes of course but some tips will be appreciated. I love the view of pirate ships and the ones with cloths that's why I pick Corsair model kit. Plus for first kit I don't like to spent hundreds (or don't have spare money let's say ). Also bought some tools - cutters, file, hobby knife, glue, brush, sanding tool, hand drill and few others. So let's begin Here are few pics of the kit: In my kit the guide was only in Spanish and German which was kind a proble
  8. Hello to everybody at msw. Last year in september I started with my first wood ship when I had my semester abroad in prague. till today I really enjoyed this kind of hobby very much. here some pictures
  9. The model is constructed of a kit intended for sale in Europe. The model is constructed with little changes - sails from a kit are replaced and small additions are made: kegs, lamps and mast with the curtailed sail in the boat.
  10. So welcome to my build log(first one in my life ). I`m building Brig Corsair as my first model and due to producer, difficulty level is medium. I get it as a request for Christmas from my wife. Why this ship? I`m also addicted to PC games and i played recently Assassin`s Creed: Black Flag and i fall in love to pirates and the ships . That`s a short story behind why i decided to go for wooden models. So thats how looks my working place: As you can see skeleton and the top deck are already placed: Now i just need to wait till the glue can hold the top deck on place .
