  1. Hi all, As I draw to an end with Ethalion, I was thrilled and surprised to find that in these somewhat uncertain times of COVID, the model I ordered from Croatia arrived a day early. So - I thought I'd put an initial post in what looks like being another build log that will take some time. I need to finish my HMS Ethalion build first, so there may be a few weeks delay to getting started, but then we'll be up and running. What I can do in the meantime is give a few first impressions of both MarisStella and their kit, and once I've read the book about what happened to B
  2. Having finally completed the Triton x-section, it's time to return to this, my first attempt at a plank on frame scratch build. It is the Tasmanian built barque Harriet McGregor from the plans by Harold Underhill, scale is 1:60. Originally started before Dry Dock Models was in operation, I lost interest in it due to the number of mistakes made in the earlier stages of construction that began to affect the build at the current point. The worst mistake: frame extensions above deck level should have been reduced in thickness prior to the waterway installation. I have done what I can to rectify th
  3. Welcome to my build log of the Stefano. When I saw the 2 current logs for the Stefano I was captivated by the beautiful lines of the ship and decided about a year ago that I would like to try to build it. Now is the time to start. I'll dispense with the kit contents photos. They can be seen both in Don Robinson's log and in Zoran's log. The contents of the kit seem to be of top quality. As noted in the other logs the plans are extensive and excellent. There is lots to be learned from building this kit. A side note for some of th
  4. This will be my first scratch build So after getting some books from ANCRE my choice fell on La Belle and the configuration it had under Cavellier de la Salle’s 1684 expedition. It is mentioned in Frölich's book as one of the easier ships for a beginner to scrach building. (We'll see about that...) Just order some pearwood from Arkowood, this will be the main building blocks for this model. I have some boxwood I'll use for carvings and decorations, later I'll order some ebony for wales, railings and blocks. In a couple of weeks (when my salary comes in) some P
  5. Hi First post! I am starting a build, almost complete novice, a Billings build many years ago. I am starting a build of a sailing Barque. The original was built by a tiny local shipyard at Aberdyfi (Aberdovey) in Wales. This was the largest ship built on the river and was roughly 100ft long. I have a copy of an excellent painting showing the hull form and rigging, along with the sail pattern. Basis of the build is a kit to save having to buy individual components. So starting with a " Charles W. Morgan kit" chosen as being a very similar size an
  6. Sailing ship, fourmast-barque PAMIR in scale 1:96 Introduction to this build log, by Nils Langemann For modeling one of the famous “Flying P-Liners” of the last century, my choice fell on the PAMIR because that ship probably would be supported with most available information one can get in the appropriate media. Much has been written about the various owners, the crews,the routes, etc, and all this illustrated on the web, in literature, reports, photos, paintings and models in all qualities and scales, without here considering many various very good moulded plastic kit models.
  7. This will be my summer project, as I believe I mentioned in my Sherbourne log. Rather a change from the cutter I have been working on, I’m sure you will agree – well, for a start, there aren’t any guns! But why this particular ship, and why a half-hull, you may well ask? Well, read on, but first a bit of history… The ’Statsraad Lehmkuhl’ was built as a steel barque for the German Schoolship Association and launched at Bremerhaven-Geestemunde in January 1914. She was originally named ’Grossherzog Friedrich August’, after the then Duke of Oldenburg, and used to train merchant navy cadets. Ta
  8. Sailing ship, threemast-barque Gorch Fock 2 in scale 1:95 Introduction to this build by Nils Langemann When choosing my first tallship for modeling, the choise for either Gorch Fock 2 or for Pamir was not so easy, so finally I decided to build both, the Gorch Fock 2 to begin with, and the other to follow on in staggered time schedule. The Gorch Fock 2 is the follower of the still existing german Gorch Fock 1 and bearing the original Name again (ex russian Tovarisch, now towed to the pier in Stralsund harbour, Baltic sea), which had several sisterships, one of them
  9. I started to build the James Craig about 3 years ago and lost interest, so packed it away and forgot all about it. That is until I discovered it in a big cardboard box in my shed. So out it came and back into building it. The model is a BIG one 2 metres in length. I plated the hull with sheets of copper to make it look like a steel plated hull, each strip was made to look as if it was riveted. James Craig was built in Sunderland England 1874. By the name of Clan Macleod. as a 3 masted steel hulled Barque. In 1900 was renamed the James Craig.
