  1. My first build. I bought the kit probably more than 30 years ago. So, I’m a late starter... Copyright date on kit box is 1984. My oldest has left the nest, so I guess I have room for a workshop! Step 1: Clean the dust off box. Also, thanks to Blackie and others for sharing their exceptional quality work and providing an inspiration to get started. My plans for going forward on this build are as follows, in this order: 1. Learn how to build ship wooden models. 2. Build this model to the accuracy I choose in my noggin (this particular ship was never real, so accuracy exists only in the b
  2. I started this AL kit Harvey some 12 years after 2 other kit builds - Mercury and Panart Saint Lucia, a tartan. The build progressed very slowly and I abandoned it about 8 years ago due to work and other interests. Finally in mid last year I was able to get back to it and I finished the hull planking just before Christmas. However, about then I began a lot of research into Baltimore clippers and I realised that the Harvey kit is "not true to form". My version of the kit materials-wise does seem to be quite good compared to those that I have read about so perhaps the kit has deteriorated over t
  3. Hello all! I've recently joined the NRG, and here's my first build log as I promised in my introduction. This is a kit I purchased back in 1993 at a hobby shop that was going out of business. I thought it would be a fun winter project. Well, all good plans, etc., but I started traveling extensively for work, and the kit took up residence in the garage. Eventually, I forgot about it. Fast forward to mid 2019, when we moved to Oregon. While unpacking the garage boxes, guess what I found. I pulled it out, looked it over, and decided to finally build it. I looked up s
  4. I'm a new ship modeler and I've completed the Artesania Latina Harvey to the point where I'm ready to begin rigging the ship. The documentation that I have with my kit does not provide clear instructions for how to perform any of the rigging functions. I've found some very good rigging videos on YouTube and feel that I can stumble my way through completion of this project but I'm not clear on the following two items: 1.) Cats Head Rigging, the attached photo shows my current cats head configuration per the build plans. The build plans however do not show the rigging configuration for the a
  5. This is the build log of my second model ship, the Harvey. I am really excited to be able to work on this ship as I am from the Baltimore region. This build log will probably take some time to complete as I am a new father, full time employee and also a part time student. Hopefully when this semester is over I will get some more time to work on this kit. I started this kit a while ago and really haven't gotten much done since my son was born. Things have died down a little and hopefully you all will not find my progress too painfully slow. A few notes on the kit: 1. The
  6. I'm in the process of constructing the Artesania Latina Harvey double planked hull box kit. This project was started back in the mid 1980's and then sat until my retirement. Following the written instructions the hull, false deck, hull shaping, first layer of hull planking, and deck planking have all been completed. I'm in the process of completing the deck rivits and was looking ahead to the next step. The instruction for the next step is as follows: "Take the two prow timber frame extensions (29), from the kit, smooth off with sandpaper and bond into position as shown in Figs, 3 and 4.
  7. So I recently picked up this kit at a swap sell meet at the Scale ACT modelling competition an have been cheerfully chugging away. As this is my first serious attempt in this medium of modelling strap yourselves in because I have heaps of questions. As you can see I've completed the first layer of hull planking and the deck. The plans call for the bulwarks to be planked and attached before commencing the second layer. So to my question.... As the bulwark is flat should I follow the curvature of the bulwark and assume the planks will come into a horizontal line as the bulwark is attache
  8. Hello all; this is my first wooden ship build ever, I have the Artesania Latina Harvey in 1:50, I am going to build it and call it the Ringle as a companion to my next build, which will be the same companies HMS Surprise in 1:48. I have a couple of questions I would love to ask, firstly the "ships of Jack Aubrey" website lists the ringle as having 2 6 pound long guns and 8 12 pound carronades. The Harvey kit comes with 8 Cannons, no mention of the size but I believe I can pass 2 of them off as the 6 pounders. I will get the Carronades aftermarket, and they should be about 3/4"" length or
  9. About 25 years ago I bought this kit in a Hobby store in CA. It has been through 2 moves since and we are preparing to move again, and I will temporarily loose my shop. So I thought it was high time to finish something. Along the way I have lost a few pieces and picked up another copy of this kit off of ebay. Before the forum upgrade there were a couple build logs of this kit. Unfortunately I don't see them now. I became very discouraged when I relalized the significant errors in this kit. This is AL's version of the Baltimore Clipper. This is a period of US history in which I am very inte
  10. First time builder, I picked up my Harvey Baltimore off Ebay very cheap, that not being the reason I bought it, I did a lot of looking around on MSW and the net, and a lot of the info pointed to the Harvey for being the ideal "Beginners" ship to build. I spent a lot of time watching Ebay until this one popped up and I managed to get a hold of it...Lucky Me...Lol!! I have probably spent about 16 hours on it so far, checking the fitment of parts and checking them over and over, a little filing & sanding here and there got me to the glueing of Bulkheads stage.... Looks a
