  1. after seeing the hms terror build logs on here especially keith s build i made a start. have always had a fascination with the story of the north west passage and when occre released this it was a must despite the compromises with the kit. frames glued in place but deck still loose. also glued in the filling pieces between frames at bow and stern building slip to help keep the keel straight while planking don't know when next update will be as Victory taking priority at the mo! Take care all keith
  2. A brief introduction - This is not my first kit but, the first attempt I feel confident in showing to others. As mentioned in other posts on this Forum there is a lot of plywood and coarse grained timber planking supplied. Also some good quality fittings so overall I am happy with materials and plans supplied (I also have plenty of research material and, a well stuffed spares box). Assembled keel. Very slight warp which will ease into position later.Supplied stem, rudder and stern (poor plywood) being replaced with 5mm lime sheet from spares box. I intend fixing thes
  3. Relative new-comer to the hobby posting my first build log. Have long had an interest in building a wooden ship model (after a misspent youth spent on plastic models and scratch-building HO scale railway structures) and the corona slowdown seemed just the right opportunity. I started with the Dusek Knarr model (1:72 scale) and learned a lot from that (ie. made lots of mistakes that I hopefully learned from.) For my second model I was able to track down one of Occre's Buccaneer models. For whatever reason, I didn't find any build logs of this one in the forum despite the apparent po
  4. Hello everyone. Here I am starting my first build log with the OcCre Buccaneer. I should have the beginnings of it later today after the kit arrives, but we shall see. In appearance this kit looks much like the golden hind kit from OcCre, however there are some somewhat subtle differences. For one, the cannon placement is different, and also according to their store page, the golden hind is 1:85 while the buccaneer is listed as 1:100 to name some of those differences. I'm not sure what this scale is based off of for the buccaneer though, as this kit is one with no namesake.
  5. To quote one of my favourite movies:"Here we go again.." After building HMS Terror, I was completely hooked, and as Corona is still roaming the streets, I managed to get my hands on Frigate Diana, also by Occre. Here's some history I picked from the Occre site: "The frigate Diana was launched on the 10th of March 1792. It formed part of the series of frigates known as "Mahonesas", as they had been built in the city of Mahón.Thanks to its design, it could sail faster than its predecessors. It took part in the war against France along the Catalan coast although, during the war of Ind
  6. all, My Halve Maen build was already on hold, but during our move to a new house in November 2015, she got lost because one of our friends put her box on the pavement instead of in our car. After that the enthusiasm to build was completely gone. I spent last year enjoying my other hobbies. But, as a Dutch saying goes: 'Blood is thicker than water' and the urge to build another ship came back. So, May I present to you the Spanish Galleon Nuestra Señora del Pilar De Zaragoza (Our lady of the pillar of Zaragoza), a Spanish Treasure Galleon.
  7. This HMS Terror will be my second build, first build was the Golden Hind by OcCre (DanielD Golden Hind) which I just finished 10/2020. I chose the HMS Terror by OcCre because I was pleased with the Golden Hind by OcCre, which was a level 2, entry level project for someone new to wood modeling. The HMS Terror is a level 3 model requiring more skills in that there are fewer pre-made parts and more rigging. I’m excited to start this project.
  8. Hello my friends,i start today to build the kit of OCCRE "SAN ILDEFONSO" I have read the topic of another user that make the same and i am ready to proceed me too.. I upload fotos with the progress First open the box then preparing the tools The two parts of the keel..i put my phone near to realise the length of the kiel... final i glue the two parts of the keel... To be continued...
  9. Hi, After a few clumpsy and failed attempts to build a kit as a teenager, I decided (ten years wiser) to jump give it a go to ship building again with Occre's Albatros. There is already good logs and videos on the kit around, but there are still a few unanswered questions for me. With this log I hope to get help answering them and, maybe, to help future beginners as well. Let's start with the tools: I started from scratch, getting the basic kit, the nail pusher, a cutting mat and some small clamps from Occre. Additionally I bought extra drill tips, larger clamps, w
  10. Hi guys, This is a restart of my building log of the Diana by Occre. The first log couldn't be found anymore. The administrators did there best, but no luck for me. Thanks guys for the search!!! So here we go again. To hot to build so now is time to restart the log. The box Dry fitting together with the little sister Start to plank the lower deck Upper deck finished planking Adding some bow fillers and fairing the bulkhead frames Start of the
  11. after finishing my small Coca model recently, I decided to move on with my Occre Diana, I started 10 years ago. This was the period where I discovered forums, ship modeling books, I purchased the recently released Vanguard kit (still unstarted) and prepared myself to build a better quality model than my previous efforts, which may exceed kit offerings. I shortly learnt, the Occre kit provides ample room for customizing. This is not an expensive kit by any means, and we got what we expect - a well designed hull shape, average (or less) quality materials and loads of generic fittings. I sta
  12. Hi all. I am a newcomer to the modelling hobby. I am Danish and live in Copenhagen. My English is ok, but I am struggling with all the shipwright terms in English (They are hard enough in Danish!) so please bear with me. After building my first wood ship model (The beginner model Polaris from Occre) I decided to go ahead and move on to HMS Beagle also from Occre. After Polaris was pretty succesful I thought I would just go ahead and try. The videos Occre has published are awesome, and gives a feeling of "How hard can it be". It was a pretty horrible experien
  13. Hello there! Sorry for taking so long this building log. I worked on the ship during the spare time I have and there is my progress (and some comments for my problems and solutions. Here we go. Problem here: as you can see I glued wrongly one at the bow, since it wasn’t a big deal y fixed it with a bit a sanding, lets hope it didn’t come on a bigger mistake. Nevermind now, lets continue. You can’t appreciate from the picture, but there are three small mistakes of cutting too much, but I fixed somehow with spare bits of the wood a
  14. The time has come to start a new project, while building Robert E Lee i've purchased the Santissima Trinidad from Occre, Occre sells the full kit and the kit divided in 6 packs, wich is what i have aqquired. I also got the Santissima Trinidad cross section kit that i intend to display together at the end and that i will include on this build log. At the moment the idea/goal is to make it heavy weathered, painted, and copper the hull, although plans are always subject to change, and i did considered several other approaches, this is at the moment the plan. As for th
  15. Hi there, This is my build log for the mighty ship Endeavour. I've lurked a bit in the background (after I bought the kit) and have taken note of some great advice. Holy Moly, you guys are good. The first advice I noticed was the need for at straight keel to make sure that the ship is straight. Sound like a good idea and since I own a couple of 3D printers, I decided to design a straight stand. The printer is still working on it. And as I could not wait to start, I took out some parts from the box and assempled the spine straight away. Putting the frames on lo
  16. Hi all again, i'll try to put some photos about my current Project, step by step. I think it's not difficult model but they have a lot of job (and time, and fun,...). They Will be painted at black/white traditional pattern like the original boat, this is a challenge for me because i have no experience painting Wood. First, the deck finished with matte varnish not colored. I'm giving a small curvature to the stern mirror (i think this word is not correct...) Second, i'm testing chalk paint brown color (chocolate) for inside, i'll try to put first layer brown and a
  17. The shipyard is open. The kit arrived today. In my new member post I suggested that Canada Post might be slow. They were fine, USPS took 13 days from L.A. to the border. There was some damage in shipping. The false keel was crunched at the stern. Pictures and fix below and the parts box let all the little eyelets and rings circulate through the box and the shrink wrap. Just about every length of brass bar was bent or crimped. I am ready to go and I'm sure I'll have lots of questions. Broden
  18. Hi All, Returning to model ships, I decided to start with a small one. "Following the mutiny on the Bounty, Captain Bligh, along with 18 loyal members of the crew were cast adrift in the launch, and made a remarkable voyage to the island of Timor, after spending 41 days in the worst possible conditions." I started with the keel but forgot to take pictures. Here's one where I'm placing the floor (sorry for the mess in the background, my workplace is tight ) I use small wood separators to keep all planks even while they set Next st
  19. ***OcCre - Cazador Jabeque / Xebec 1750*** Hello my friends, it's been a while since my last buildlog of Santa Maria Buildlog. Today I would like to present my new log of the Xebec Cazador of OcCre. As a child I was fan of the Redbeard comics, maybe known by some of you. Anyway, one of the titles was "Fight With The Moors" (1973) and describes a story of Moorish pirates who looted merchant ships in the Mediterranean sea. The ships they used were fast, agile and armed to the teeth Xebecs! In the story, ships were plundered, crew were killed, the ship burned to the ground and women
  20. My work allows you to make models in autumn and winter. I am happy because I will be back to the modeling shop again soon. I did so much last season:
  21. After spending the last couple of months gathering tools, and more importantly, information, I feel comfortable enough to start a build log. HMS Terror is my first try at wooden model ship building, though I have had plenty of experience working with plastic kits, as well as working with wood on a somewhat larger scale. Next to build logs on this site and elsewhere, in a variety of languages, I studied Occre's tutorial videos and finally, when the ship arrived as an early Christmas present, the plans. Honestly speaking, the plans took some figuring out , as I'm used to Tamiya kits
  22. I've started my first model ship kit. The Polaris seemed a good starter kit, all the build videos OcCre has sold me on this one. I'm building this on my time off, so updating may be slow in posting. The hull is started. Fitting the bulkheads to insure they were flush with the false keel, I put a witness mark on each so when gluing up they went in the same orientation as when fitted. As it turned out this was unnecessary as they were flush either way. Don't know if I got lucky or if this an indication as to the quality of the laser cutting. I will be using Titebond II on all non-vis
  23. Reflections on the kit and build: I thought it might be more useful for others, who might be thinking about building this kit, to write a short summary about my experience, and put it in this first post so it is easier to find. First off this kit is meant for first time builders, which I am, and I think they got it right. Its detailed picture-based instructions and the accompanying videos make it very clear how to build everything. There is no guesswork involved. I had only a few moments with the final sail rigging where the instructions were a little too brief but even then the vide
  24. So having joined Model Ship World almost a year ago, I finally have the time to document my first wooden ship model build. I have had experience in building plastic kits as well as modelling scenery. So I decided to give ship building a bash and to see what the outcome would be. As it turns out I have been rather enjoying the hobby, having put in a large amount of research prior to committing to a build. However, due to being in the Royal Navy, my modelling time is limited as to when I can get home and to find time to do some work. So far with being away and lockdown I have only managed to do
  25. This is my first wooden ship build, as mentioned in my introduction I used to build and fly radio controlled planes, I much preferred building them to flying! I decided to build HMS Beagle by Occre, the subject ships history is really interesting plus I think it is a beauty! Occre have step by step YouTube videos of the build which I'm sure will be invaluable. I have definitely jumped in with both feet but feel I'm up to the challenge! Instructions appear to be very detailed and walk you through step by step. I have made a small start on the false ke
