  1. This will be my first journey into the DARK SIDE! I am collecting drawings, profiles, pictures so I can start drawing my plans. I shall use Cap N Bob's build as my guide. I took the first big plunge by buying a Dremel Scroll Saw. Now that I've set the saw up, I have to practice cutting precision curved cuts with it. At least I have tons of left over material from past builds to practice. Hipexec
  2. This is the first time I have ever blogged about a build. I've kept notes on builds but not done anything like this. The reason this time, is I am hoping to learn from comments made on my posts, and also my intention is to do weekly updates until the boat is built. My hope is having this "commitment" will help me to make progress on my build, rather than long lulls between activity. This is my fourth build, the first was a Lightning by Dumas, it is incomplete after I messed up the mast, and got holes in the foredeck. It took me years to get to that point. I've subsequently re
  3. Greetings- New here to the forum, and new to the model ship building world. I have been a sailor for several years and have increasingly grown more fond of anything and everything related to sailing, and life at sea. I lived on my sailboat for a couple years in Seattle, WA and have had the opportunity to sail abroad on some fantastic journeys in the North Sea, Ionian Sea and Dalmatian Coast. Before COVID hit, I was set to do a charter in French Polynesia with some family and good friends. Always looking for more opportunities to get out on the water under sail...
  4. I enjoyed reading the Aubrey–Maturin book series by Patrick O’Brian so much so, I got the idea to build a model boat of the H.M.S. Surprise. Luckily for me, I decided to build a simple boat first. I selected the Titanic Lifeboat by Artesanía Latina as my first and easy boat. This was not easy! My eyes were opened to the skills required to build model boats. I enjoyed the building process so much, that I have built 2 additional boats. My skill level is getting better, but I am still no-where ready to build the H.M.S. Surprise, if I ever will be ready. I am getting better at planking, but
  5. My first attempt at a builders log (we all know that long before it became a fashionable term, that is what "blog" referred to). I write this as I am a couple of months into the build. I expect to have the blog catch up to real time over the next week or so). * * * Joshua Slocum left Boston in April 1895 aboard the 35 foot sloop Spray, finishing his circumnavigation of the world over three years later, in July of 1898. He was the first to circle the globe alone. We know quite a lot about that trip since the definitive book on the subject, Sailing Alone Around the World, was writte
  6. Hello, just started my fifth ship model build. This time it is a model of the Spray. I have had this model on the shelf for about 15-18 years. I am a bit concerned that the build is beyond my ability and the instructions assume more knowledge then I have but time will tell. One of the reasons I am building this boat is that Joshua Slocum was from Nova Scotia and I was born and live here, home of the Bluenose and many many other ships worth modeling. I just finished a small model of The Bounty's launch, this was the first model I have build in about 12-15 years. Now back in it. This Spray mo
  7. One more new small project. My thanks to Cap'n'Bob for support. Best Regards! Igor.
  8. Hi all, Years ago I read "Sailing Alone Around the World" by Joshua Slocum, and in January 2012 I decided that I would build his boat, the "SPRAY", in 1/48 scale POF with bent framing. The way Slocum built it. I started asking questions on this forum, and I want to thank all those who answerd with help. The information on this forum is invaluable. Then the research began. In the first chapter of his book, Slocum said he was given an old "fishing smack". So I looked for fishing smacks of 1800. About when his was built. Someone suggested the "Emma C Berry" for frami
