  1. So I have shelved for the time being my Yacht Mary build, there are a lot of areas I am needing to learn better and sought out new builds to gain experience. ***DRUM ROLL*** To gain the experience desired, I have decided to build the Brig Eagle from the 1814 war on Lake Champlain against the British. The history of Eagle seems pretty well known, as there are several other blogs on here building this beautiful ship. The Eagle had a short known life and historical significance, but she played a great role in defeating the British for the last time against the Americans. T
  2. I started this build waaaay back in 2013 after I finished my Triton cross section, but really didn't want to start a build log until I had some substantial progress done (I'm a really slow builder). I was also lofting my own frames and lived in perpetual fear up until recently that I made some mistake that would only become apparent when I started fairing the hull and would end in the ruin of my build. I figured having a multipage build log when that happened would make it that much harder to recover my confidence. Well, I got past that point and it turns out my drawings worked, so a slow day
  3. The Topsail Schooner “Eagle” had a length of 81’ 7”, beam of 22’ 8”, depth of 7’ 10”, and tonnage of 140 tons. Both the “Eagle” and her sistership “Arrowsic” were built in Arrowsic Island on the Kennebec River (near the present shipbuilding city of Bath, ME) in 1847 for the lumber and ice trade by builder Samuel Pattee. During the mid-19th century small schooners of this sort were widely employed in the East Coast trade; their schooner rigs an easy adaption to the prevailing westerly winds and economy in crew size. The model was scratch built to a scale of 3/16” to the foot (1:64)
  4. I started working on the Eagle again and thought I would post some pictures to my build log. That’s when I noticed the Model Ship World had changed and I would have to start a new log. I want to say the update looks great. Well, first I guess I will post my old photos and get everything back. I started the Eagle a good time ago and stopped a couple times. The kit is nice, but I did do a little bit a bashing. I changed up the guns a bit and got rid of gun carriages for the carronades that came with the kit and made my own. I also made the stern davits for the boat I made. Other than t
  5. Once I saw the end approaching to my USS Constitution build I started looking for my next project. I was looking for something that would hook my interest in both the construction as well as the history. I wanted something challenging that would also push my skills. I found and downloaded Gene Bodnar’s Practicum on the USS Brig Eagle. This is a plank on Frame Admiralty build that can be fully rigged or left unrigged in Admiralty style. The Eagle was built at Vergennes, Vermont between July 23rd and August 11th of 1814 by shipwright Adam Brown. An amazing feat in itself when you con
  6. Started my build of the Eagle American Brig from Corel yesterday and have already found the plans to be lacking in some detail. First off as I started to dry fit the frames onto the keel I found the two frames closest to the stern would not fit as is indicated in the drawings. Additionally the when I dry fit the deck in place it will not fit flush with the last second to last frame as indicated in the drawing nor is it clear how the last frame should be attached to the keel.
  7. I am restoring a kit model of a square topsail schooner which was caked in dust and grime, all the rigging in tatters. No vessel name. The kit/model is probably 40 years old And has sentimental value to its owner.I wonder if anyone knows of a kit of such a vessel which could be an aid in rigging details and deck details. Or any other pertinent references.
  8. Well, my semester is over and my grades are submitted, so this build begins. I have been anticipating it for a couple weeks, but didn't have the time to really dig in, and I didn't want to chip away. So, since I'm a rank rookie, I spent that time reviewing the parts, reading the manual, stalking the site for tips and builds in progress, and doing some novice planning.... Also, spent a good deal of time on YouTube watching builds, though there was nothing available for the model I chose, and setting up a small modeling workspace in my garage/gym/reloading space/man cave. I chose Co
