  1. With a Black Friday sale price on the screen and a long pandemic winter in prospect, I finally took the plunge I had long been considering on Emma C. Berry. Although my experience is limited, the thought of building up a ship's proper framework and deck substructure was appealing. I liked what I saw in the various logs here, and wanted the challenge and opportunity to extend my skills that ECB offers. Most of all, I wanted something to occupy my time, hands, and mind. ECB has not disappointed. I started work on Dec. 7 and have entries in my handwritten log for every day since then, Christ
  2. Emma C. Berry as a schooner The Berry was originally built at the Latham Yard in Noank, CT (near today's Mystic Seaport) in 1866 as a gaff sloop. John H. Berry, a Noank fisherman, commissioned a well smack sloop (a small fishing vessel with an internal wet well for storing the catch) for $1,275. She was launched June 8 and has been “restored” several times over the last 155 years. The Emma C. Berry was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1994 and is one of the oldest surviving commercial vessels in America. In 2015, Lawrence R. Jabobsen published “Celebratthing the EMMA C
  3. Had to shelf my USS Essex, too many missing parts and directions! Frustrating! Picked The Emma C. Berry for a good price and thought it is a good scale and very sexy ship. She was built and launched down the way in Noank, Conn. in 1866. Known as a "Noank Smack" fishing vessel. Got to it building the keel/skeg section, then putting together the build board and keel support unit with the frame clamp fixture. Ready to start the frames!
  4. I am starting to build this kit as my first foray into a POF model so bear with this beginner. I am included a picture of the box but not the contents as I neglected to take a photo. I probably won't do a step by step log as it will bore the more experienced members and much of it is self explanatory, instead I will concentrate upon my challenges and mistakes and will probably asking the experienced members frequently for Help! There is a rather impressive amount of wood which I did inventory and label by size and checked off all the other items. I started by building the keel sect
  5. Ordered kit on 2/8/21 and box arrived on porch today. Tomorrow I'll inventory the kit and start studying the plans is today a couple of pictures just to start. More to come Stay Well and Stay Safe Will
  6. Thanks to Firefox Caches, I was able to recover the beginning of the Build Log. Here it is for your pleasure: Folks, Here is another log of that famous little boat, made by Model Shipways at the scale of 1/32. It is a serious kit for moderate level as it is a planking on frames. The instructions are also rather fuzzy, allowing you to approach the building in your own way. The booklet going with the kit is starting to show its age and the instructions provided are in no ways comparable to modern assembly books provided by Amati or the ultimate perfection such as the instructions booklet wr
  7. I started a new build The Emma C. Berry. I have been regulated to a couple hours on the weekends lately and the garage is too cold to work in, I have to put it away every night. I am very excited about building out my new shipyard in the new house we are building. We are 4-6 weeks out from completion and will be moving yet again. The admiral and I are more settled in our jobs now so hopefully this move will be less stressful. I've been following a couple of other build logs to get to this point.
  8. Hello everybody. I'm starting my Emma C Berry build. I had previously built the Phantom kit, also from Model Shipways, and used the "build for free" credit to purchase this kit. Emma C Berry, at Mystic Seaport in May, 2010 I hope to elaborate more in the future on my goals for this build, my model building background, and maybe even some product review stuff, but for now, I will just start the build log already! Edit: Please check out my photos of the real Emma C Berry at Mystic Seaport! TABLE OF CONTENTS Stem and Keel Lofting Frames Clamps Deck Beams
  9. Hello! The Emma C. Berry is my second attempt at a model ship, my first being the Model Shipways Armed Virginia Sloop. The AVS was completed to the rigging stage, then put aside as life got in the way. My daughter recently had her first child, and to provide help to her (my wife and I are both retired school teachers) we were able to "house sit" a beautiful home on a lake near her, up in the Adirondack mountains of New York. No TV, just a big fireplace and a beautiful view of a lake. I had the Emma C. Berry in the stash so I figured getting her planked up would be a gr
  10. Greetings. The next build for the PHTS Shipyard has arrived. Attached hereto are photo's of the kit and contents. We will need to hold off on laying the keel for at least a short while, as the Shipyard Overseer has issued a management directive that states we must launch at least one of our current builds (either the Harriet Lane or the Ranger/ Detector) prior to beginning this one. Looks like we need to put in some overtime!!! The box cover Instructions and contents Laser cut pieces Looks like one broke - believe it is a part of the windlass. Will check int
  11. As a transition from POB to POF I've selected Emma C Berry. Photo shows August progress. String to run at centerline during frame lofting. Level at front used to verify level of building board, the table building board sits on during work and for lofting of frames .
  12. Howdy All. Just started working on the Emma C, my first true pof kit. The first frame was the most nerve-wracking to me, because all follow suit after that. I posted a few pics, nothing to exciting yet. Laid the keel, built the building jig and mounted frames 1-4. This is a great site, tons of talent and great photos of build-ups. So far many questions I've had have been answered just by reading posts. I have been up close to the Emma C, I have a relative who worked at the Mystic Seaport back in the early 80's. have seen all the vessels there up close and personal, even been aloft on the
