  1. And so it begins. This is my second build, having caught the bug earlier this year. That makes me a novice, and I plan to show other novices the process of climbing the learning curve. Many have been here before me, and you can find build logs of their work. Those I have found are by @Beef Wellington, @Stone, @Vane, @mispeltyoof, @Davemc, @jim_smits, @peteri and @BenD. Should I be worried that none of them is finished?
  2. HMS Snake was launched in 1797 as the only member of her class of brig-sloops. She captured or destroyed two French privateers and one Danish privateer. She also captured numerous small merchantmen, but spent time escorting convoys to and from the West Indies. She was sold in 1816. Scale: 1:64 Length: 910 mm Width: 350 mm Height: 910 mm And now the build begins.
  3. HMS Snake As requested by a user on this forum I will show all the contents of this kit, The other snake builds do not have this it seems. I ordered the kit with some extras (cannon balls, Snake paint set) and a few other things. I will start work on it in a few weeks, Just need to finish up the running rigging on the Sherbourne and make her a display case. All of the fittings are good quality and even the blocks seem to be of highers quality that what came with the Sherbourne. The Caronades are rough looking but the cast is aligned they just
  4. This is my first post to try and recreate my old build log from before the great crash of 2013. I'll do my best to find what I have from the old log and will resurrect what I can. Unfortunately, if this can be believed, my PC had a hard drive failure around the same time so I'm still int he process of trying to recover what I am able(I hadn't been too studious keeping photos assuming that once posted they would be safe and backed up - never assume!). My commiserations to all the others out there who have lost so much work, it really is a big loss, I hope that we can collectively
  5. Hello again I have recently finished my first model hms Sherbourne which I was very pleased with the result it was ok for a first timer. I have now just started to build my second model HMS Snake I picked this model as it has multiple masts so much more rigging and it also has a copper hull so it interested me it also has rigged cannons and a bit more detail so should be a challenge. so I hope you all enjoy this one and any help and feed back will be appreciated no doubt I’ll be asking for advice along the way.
  6. Hi everybody, Thank you for your interest in my shipbuilding journey! This is going to be my first ever ship build. This has been on my wish list for a long time (to be fair, since I read Tin Tin: The Secret of the Unicorn as a boy). This interest got fueled again while reading the Bolitho novels from Alexander Kent. So last month I decided to start looking for a model and as many others, I got inspired by the HMS Victory, HMS Surprise, HMS Diana builds. However, after reading the topic "For Beginners - A cautionary tale" I decided to be smarter than myself. So because
  7. HMS Snake - 2nd build After picking up my modelship building hobby again (after many years of dorment) I decided to buy my second kit to have something to alternate with when doing the rigging on my first build Corel's HMS Victory in 1:98. It took a while to go through various brands and to decide which one to invest in. My first choice of doing the Victory was kind of naive and a typical newbie mistake. Dont get me wrong, I really love it and it has turned out ok. But I never finished it and modelling is learning by doing and everyone should start more easy is my recommendat
  8. Begun the Caldecraft Snake kit. Impressed with quality of components although with the very high price paid should be. Also impressed with the provision of a cradle to build the ship all providers could easily supply.All components seem to be there for now. All bits fit well with a small amount of filing. But when dry fitting the false deck it appears that it us well out if kilter to match up with the bulwarks. Tomorrow's job will be to try to match the deck up with bulwarks for fitting presumably by much sanding ,cutting and filing to get them to line up. One problem I can see is the false
  9. I have started to build HMS Snake the initial stages have been completed, first planking etc, the only point of interest maybe that i used "wood filler" to fill between the bow bulkheads then sanded to shape to help the first planking of the hull.
  10. Hello all! I go skiing in Germany for a week and it's all gone wrong in my absence...! It's a shame that the upgrade had a bit of a mishap but thats life. Well done to everyone who is pulling the site back together. I still have my images from the original build log and managed to find a cached text version from Jan 13. I will post the text and images to preserve the thread as well as i can. Also I have managed to find 1,2 & 3 of 5 pages of beefwellingtons snake build log in text format. Beef let me know if you are back and want the text. Anyway onto the catch up.
  11. Back again after a nearly four year break with my snake build. Moving house meant everything got put away (on the plus side I now have my own man cave in the basement) and I recently been getting my modelling mojo back by doing some plastic modelling. Before we moved I'd got as far building the hull and coppering and I've restarted again, I've put the rails on and some of the deck furniture. Now I'm getting to the wheel rigging and I'm wondering what the best way forward is on this? For those wondering where it is I need to reattach the tiller for the third time which is annoying (the l
  12. Well It took me a while to get the energy to even rebuild my build log. i`ll give it a try. Unfortunately the most important part of it, all the helpfull hints and tips of other forum members that helped to motivate and push me along will not be there anymore. at least i can bring back the pics After building several quite successfully sailing RC square riggers with either carved out solid hulls or bread and butter style built up hulls, i thought it high time to start and try a proper planked model (my first!). Searching for a suitable model i fell in love with the Caldercraft/Jotika L
