  1. Pride in the Pacific 1982 In late 1976 I got a job as a laborer on a construction site in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. At the site they were building a Baltimore Clipper schooner named Pride of Baltimore. Pride under construction in November 1976, just about when I started there. Five years later, on my 21st birthday, I reported on board as Pride's newest crew member. I spent two months aboard the boat in charge of her guns as she took part in the bicentennial reenactment of the battle of Yorktown. Yours truly is at the top right, in the cocked hat.
  2. Having finished my slightly kit-bashed cross section of the Constitution, which I really enjoyed doing and swore that's the only life for me... I thought I should still learn how to plank a hull. I had already purchased this kit and figured I could learn much and then either go on the more full ships or find more cross sections to build. As soon as I started the mistakes began and continued to pile up, which is why, even though the project started last winter, the build-log did not. But now that the planking is a real mess I figured I'd reveal all and, if nothing else, provide a greatest hi
  3. Good morning everyone! This log is the evolution of what was a kit build, that out of frustration and disappointment, is now a full campaign into scratch building. I bought Model Shipways "Pride of Baltimore II", 1:64th scale what now must be a couple years ago. I was beyond excited when it arrived. My wife and I spread the contents across the counter, separating, grouping every strip as we checked off the material list. We counted cannons, pulleys and deadeyes...This is where my initial frustration was seeded. The cannons where so small, with little detail to enjoy. None
  4. Kit arrived Friday, almost a week before I expected it. Didn't get to it till today. Organized tools again and took inventory, labeling all the wood bundles after measuring then with a caliper. I can't identify some of the castings but the count seems right. Will have to cross that Sea when I come to it. I'm pretty intimidated by some of the blocks and dead eyes. Will have to get a new magnifying visor or microscope to rig them. May get started on they keel today and may not. Have to find a copy place to copy the plans as they are printed double sided. I like to post them on the wall but don'
  5. I am working on my first model kit, Pride of Baltimore....Started it several months ago and now time to work on the Masts and above deck details. I have built model planes, giant scale for several years, and wanted to learn about ships. Is their any practial method of building a rope ladder.
  6. From the album: Ships in Bottles

    The is a scene of the Pride of Baltimore sailing along side the schooner Virginia, as they approach the Thimble Shoals Lighthouse. It displays the great rivalry that exists between the two ships in the Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Races.
