  1. New modeller here with my first build log. Unfortunately, I stumbled upon this site after I finished planking the dory, so this log will probably be of little use to anyone starting from the beginning. Here's where I am so far. I just finished freeing the boat from the building board and cleaning up plank edges at the bow and transom. Everything looks okay from far away... Oh my. As you can see, the port side planking is several millimeters higher than starboard. I think this is partly due to worrying about getting the edges of the planks flush
  2. Ok, so this is my very first build, and here's what I've learned so far. This is going to be harder than i thought, but surprisingly enjoyable, trying to do this. Also, I've confirmed I am not a perfectionist! (this could be a blessing or a curse!) Step 1: I thought I'd try the harder beginning, that is, gluing the 3 bottom planks together. Apparently I took the instructions to "prepare & sand" the planks too literally, because they don't fit flush together. Not to worry, I used an enormous amount of glue trying to get them to stick. I tried to wipe off the excess with a b
  3. I know this is not the first build of this kit on this forum, but I decided to post my log of it for my own reference if nothing else. Very excited to start, I've only ever built plastic models, so this will be a learning experience. The kit I got comes with some basic tools, allowing you to build it out of the box. I already had most of the tools, but I won't say no to extra tweezers, clamps, paint, and glue. You can make the bottom from a single piece or three planks. I chose the latter, though I did use the single piece to mark off lengths
  4. Hello all. This is my first model boat. Previous model experience was as a boy, plastic cars and one balsa wood plane. I don't think I finished any of them. I think I'm going to finish this one soon. I started on December 28. I did a lot of reading and gathering of tools and supplies as I waited for the model to arrive, and also read every build log on this model that I could find. I made a spreadsheet with a link to each log, and noted the specific tips I thought were pertinent or unique in each, so when I arrived at that particular stage I could identify which log applied without re-reading
  5. Hello everyone, So I’m starting another build to make Christmas presents for my dad and father in law. I recently saw that model expo started a series of progressive model tutorials and the first build in the series, the Lowell Grand Banks Dory, was only 30 USD so I bought two of them! I have only been in this hobby for a few years but when I started I had a hard time figuring out what kit to start with. Sure there are plenty of builds that brand them selves and beginner level models but they dont give you any more information other than what is needed to complete the
  6. 20201209 Started work on the Lowell Grand Banks Dory. This is billed as a starter kit but no matter; I decided to try my hand on an open boat that is bigger in scale than the two sailing ships I've finished over the past several months. I like the look of this boat; think it might look good in one of the grandkid’s rooms. Anyways, so far all I’ve accomplished is to inventory the parts and assemble the bottom of the boat. Have the frame pieces laid out and ready to glue up; will get that done in the remaining evenings this week and then start work on the hull this wee
  7. New Shipwright’s Series from Model Shipways LOWELL GRAND BANKS DORY - Kit #MS1470 Skill Level 1 Scale 1:24 Overall Length 10 inches Overall Height 1 1/2 inches Overall Width 3 inches Baseboard 3 1/2 inches x 11 inches This is the first kit in the new Shipwright’s Series of progressive model tutorials designed by David Antscherl for Model Shipways a division of Model Expo. These kits fill a void in our hobby for simple but good kits that teach the new model builders the necessary skills to enable them to move on to build bigger more complex kits.
