  1. 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...
  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. Hello everyone. This is my first build thread and only the third wooden ship model I've built over the last 40 years (retired now). Currently I'm still reading the instructions and sail plan and yet to purchase tools except for a medium duty knife and pinvise. If you look closely at the body lines you may notice previously erased lines. This had to be done to correctly position the propeller boss area onto more of the keel area. Any advise and opinions are welcomed as although it may be I've bitten off a little more than I can chew, I won't give up the ship. Hope to hear from you and looking f
  4. This is my first build so I'm not sure how it will turn out but I'm excited to give it a go. I've gone with the Grand Banks Dory by BlueJacket which I've read here is a good introductory kit. I also really enjoy Windlow Homer's work so it just seemed like a great introduction. I had a little bit of confusion about what was supposed to be included in the kit because the listing suggested that there's a paint kit. I reached out to the BlueJacket team and they responded right away which was really nice. In the end I had to put in an order for the paint because it's not included. Not
  5. This is my first build! I've always been enamored with fishing boats, tugboats and merchant ships. I chose this particular kit, as it comes complete with all the materials required to complete the model, including tools and paint. It is also designated as an entry-level model. There is a completed build log of this kit by schooner. As He covered the contents of the kit thoroughly (complete with photos), I will abstain from repeating that here. (I hope that is within the rules, if not, let me know and I will edit this post). I've been looking over the plans, reading the
  6. This is my first wooden "ship" model. I've been interested in them for some time. This seemed like a good entry point as it has planking and some wooden block shaping for the bow. It doesn't have masts and rigging. Blue Jacket rates thus as an intermediate model. The box contains laser cut parts, blocks for the bow, pewter fittings, flexible window/windshield material, some line and round brass stock. The small box is the optional paint kit.
  7. Hello Folks, I am excited to begin my second build log and Blue Jacket kit on MSW. My first log was the "Yankee Hero" by Blue Jacket and I had a great time with the kit and posting the build. I enjoyed hearing from all the kind and supporting people in MSW. The Revenue Cutter represents what I believe is a reasonable progression from the Yankee Hero. The challenge I anticipate with this build is that I intend and (attempt) to complete this kit utilizing copper plates versus painting copper below the waterline. I was inspired to try this after I saw the Revenue Cutter build log by sjanicki
  8. So here we go to build this interesting whaleboat. Despite its large scale, it is a small model. Here's the box top And the overview of the contents:
