  1. This will be my log on building the 17th Century Battle Station based on plans by Jeff Staudt. This was a joint effort by three of us to develop this model and they are Mike Shanks, Doc Blake and myself. Doc did all the milling work on the wood, Mike supplied the expertise and skills on the cnc and laser machines and I did the turnings and whatever metal work that was required. The model is not entirely historically correct, however, does make into a nice model for display. We did do some minor changes to the plans and things, such as the grates, we did a little out of the norm but it was all
  2. Good morning Guys, Stuck in under lockdown in Ghana, so I thought I would post progress on the Panart Battle Station I am doing. Everything is hard here. Even when the shops are open you can't buy modelling materials so it is a mater of make do. No micro drills, no proper paint, no razor saw. Nothing is easy. Even the correct glue is hard to find, and that's when the shops are open! The kit has been carried around the world for about 10 years whilst I made the Billing Cutty Sark, and now is suitably mature, so started. Before I started I made up a couple of
  3. After 40 years, i finally retired from job, and made a small "gift"to me. It is a small build that i want to work with my grand daugther, that like to work with me (i have some pictures with she working) Hope to be a future modelist Today i received the package Wait for her to start the build, and the log.
  4. This will be my build log for a 17th century Royal Navy Battle Station. The station is loosely modeled after a 4th rate ship of the line, HMS Mordaunt, launched in 1681. It is based on the excellent plans drawn by Jeff Staudt, and the model kit itself is one of three produced in collaboration with two modeling friends. I'll be adding background information and details on research and development of the kits is as the build proceeds. Here is a reprint of the message I posted when I received my kit:
  5. I'm beginning a build of the battle station posted on the NRG's website. I plan several modifications to the original, andI have increased the scale to 1/2" = 1". I started by cutting out the base, as well as some walnut and bloodwood for the bulwark frames I then dframed in the gunport with bloodwood. Next came a mahogany waterway. The photo shows it shaped, but not yet cut to size or installed. I then planked the outside using rosewood for the wale, black strake and rail and boxwood for the planking. The inner bulwark was planked in bloodwood.
  6. Hi All A number of years ago, I bought the first copy of a part works magazine on building a 1/96 HMS Victory. The reasons were, it was only £1.99 (starter price) and it had some nice colour pictures for reference, some nice pieces of thin plywood (always hard to find in the UK) to be used as bulkheads. It also had a gun kit comprising barrel, carriage (in 3 pieces), trucks, capsquares, a length of brass rod for axles and some small brass nails to hold the capsquares on with. This kit has been sculling around in the bottom of my toolbox for a while now, so I thought I’d have a bash at a b
  7. I am currently working on a couple projects, but here is a side project I am doing. The cannon was turned on a mini lathe - my first. I still need to do the trucks and all the hardware. The inboard and outboard pictures are pictures taken after I added the tree nails.
  8. Posto di Combattimanto Which Google translates as "instead of fighting", which I don't think is Panart's intention. A more correct (direct Italian) translation is simply "battle station" which is a lot more appropriate. As far as I can ascertain this isn't based on any real ship, but is a figment of the designers imagination. It is, hopefully an historically accurate depiction of a cross section of a gun-deck based one deck down midships somewhere. During this build I will be constantly referring to the brilliant build of this kit by Cobr@ here on NRG. I make no apologies for this,
  9. This will be my build log for the 1/23 scale Panart Kit, Section Deck Between Gun Bays also know as Posto Di Combattimento. This is a secondary kit i am building which will be done when waiting for things like glue to dry or things to be sanded (I hate sanding ) on my other kit H.M.A.V. Bounty. So it will take longer than usual to complete. Checked all the parts out and it all seems to be there but not sure if the Cannon trunions are missing or if they are made of dowel as the parts list doesn't say, either way it's a simple job to sort. The wood looks to be good quality but some of
  10. I am building this model for a friend who reads O'Brian almost continuously. With the model on his reading desk aiding his imagination i hope he will be transported into the world that he finds so fascinating. I will not be strictly following all aspects of the kit instructions but using some licence to delete, modify or add as I see fit. Historical and physical accuracy will suffer for this and I imagine there will be not a few wry smiles at some of my decisions but I crave indulgence as this is not meant to be an exact depiction but more an instrument of imagination.
  11. This is my build log of a Cross section from a British Man of War from approx. 1815. This was my first POB build. The Kit is from Panart. The Plans consisted of 1 double sided sheet in Italian.
