  1. This is my first semi-scratch build and it is more like an experiment, which may possibly end in an epic fail. I bought a Caldercraft Badger and Granado kit from eBay (from a guy who probably gave up this hobby) some years ago for a reasonable price and the Badger had been already started but with some mistakes. I kept both kits in storage and did some easier builds instead. A friend of me had recently bought a simple CNC laser engraving machine (to cut ribs for RC-Planes) and I had the idea to build a bigger version of the Badger instead of fixing the already started kit. I also would like to
  2. So, thanks to my very welcome but very time and energy consuming 3 month old son I really don’t have the time or energy for modelling. So instead I’ve decided to live vicariously through myself and do a build log on a model I finished a couple of years ago. The Caldercraft HMS Badger. The Badger was my second wooden ship model, the first being a build of the MS Willie Bennet. Before that I’d been building plastic model since the age of four. Mostly tanks or aircraft. I chose the Badger since it seemed like it had a lot of bang for the buck without being too ambitious. Two masts, ca
  3. A big shame about losing all the build logs. Can't do much but start a new log and help rebuild the community This new website seems to have lots of cool features though. I have been working on my Badger, my first wooden ship model, since November 2008. It's been a lot of off and on time, with the birth of my daughter, various honey-dos from the Admiral and other hobbies. I'm on the home stretch, with the standing rigging almost completed. Next up will be adding furled sails to the yards, and finish up with the running rigging. Thanks for reading!
  4. Hi hope I am doing this correctly I have built several models but this is my first attempt at a build log ] I hope you like my work any criticism will be welcome Andy
  5. This is my second build. I chose the Badger with the help of my friend Clare Hess and I'm glad I did. I've read all I could find about this ship and ones that are similar. I'm looking forward to the work ahead. I had fun laying the keel and associated bulkheads. I added some mast supports to the side of the keel and the mast slots. That idea came from Ben Lankford's book. The plans called for planking the false deck later, but I thought I could do a better job of it now.
  6. UNBOXING THE BEAST (1)... Although my workspace is not ready yet, i moved to a new home shortly, i will start my build log already today. Today getting my hands on my new kit, i could not resist opening it. So i decided to take the first pictures of unboxing the beast... I did a lot of reading and researching on the internet and some books, which model should be the first for me. A bloody beginner in model ship building. After all that reading i took as my only technical rule of thumb - beginners should start with a model in scale 1:50. During this studys i stumbled over differ
