  1. This is a fun and quicky project. My grandson is building it with a little help from Grandad. We saw some you tubes on these wonderful little craft. Next best thing to steam power but a darned sight cheaper. It is powered by its own pop pop motor which we shall be making next. It makes a realistic pop pop!!! Sound. This is a fun toy but to be honest ,because it has a live burning flame inside it, it can hardly be given to a very young child. I think 13 is okay. Not so sure about the 69 year old though!!! Ha ha. If you get the itch and secretly build one,
  2. This will be a 1/48 scale model of a six meter (20 foot) Misainier fishing boat from the early 1900s. The Misainier was an important feature of the French Atlantic Coast in the early part of the 20th century. These little boats were usually 4 to 8 meters long, single masted, lug rigged, and built by individuals without formal plans. Hundreds plied the coastal fishing grounds of Brittany until the mid 1900s.
  3. Hi all This will be my first build log of my first scratch build. As I was dreaming of scratchbuilding, about a decade ago (I’m getting old!!) I bought the “Progressive Scratch Building” CD set from seaways. It seemed to me at the time it was a good start to get into scratchbuilding (and it still does ) It contains the plans and information to build three ships, each one increasing in difficulty. The first one being the Bermuda boat Corsair. She was built in 1807 and designed for speed. She acted as an inter-island courier.
  4. Hello everyone, This will be my first wooden model build - I am super excited and equally nervous. I have chosen the Endeavour's Longboat for two reasons: Artesania Latina kits are more readily available in South Africa I thought it to be a good beginner kit while not being overly simplified in terms of detail, rigging etc. I have gone through the existing build logs here, which will prove to be invaluable. I can only hope that my completed work would look as awesome as other's models, and I may even "borrow" a few of the ideas featured in th
  5. Evidently this particular "boat" topic has never been brought up in this forum. Late in the 1800s when builders were toying around with more compact and energetic sources of energy for propulsion, they developed the naphtha engine, which used volatile fuels produced by the distillation of petroleum to either heat water to steam or, eventually, to produce propulsion by internal combustion. It was the precursor to gasoline engines. Between the 1890s and around 1905, small- to medium-sized vessels called naphtha launches were very popular with the boating public, and thous
  6. In August, after finishing my smack cross section, I started a new project. The first series of pictures are sorted now, it is time to start with the log of this new scratch project. Introduction Since ages, the ship model was the ideal tool to show how a vessel fits together. Ship builders used models to present their new designs to the admiralties. (painting 'A New Ship for the Dutch' John Seymour Lucas) In the 19th and early 20th century they were very suitable for museums to show to the general public how live on board of a ship was. (Picture of the old Rijksm
  7. LAUNCHING the JAMES CAIRD: December 10, 2018 I've decided to do one last scratch ship model. For those of you not familiar with the "Caird" here is a summary of the voyage: After nearly a year being locked in Weddell Sea pack ice, the "Endurance," carrying Earnest Shackleton's "Trans Antarctic Expedition" sank in October 1915. Expedition members survived on the floating sea ice until April 1916 when they took to the sea in three of the ship's lifeboats and made their way to icebound Elephant Island in the South Polar Sea. Here, Shackleton had the largest of the boats, which h
  8. I start building a bragozzo, a traditional Adriatic boat, which I find very attractive for its painted sails. For its construction I rely on the book by Mario Marzari, which has all the information I need.
  9. Hi to all! One more of my small and short projects. You can read the story of this boat HERE So, first, I made the basis of the boat's hull.
  10. Good Morning All, I really don't know whether it is OK to post this album in this thread or not. It is a Scratch build Diorama , my first Diorama actually ... Clay, green sponge and Balsa. Still i have to apply the resin and place some other parts ... Please let me know what do you think thanks
  11. Hello to all! One of my current projects is a boat in a bottle. As a basis, I took a set for the construction of a boat from LAK-Design. This boat is on the 91st scale, but I plan to place a crew there, so it will be adapted to the 72nd scale. So, a pair of keel frames from the pear 0.7-0.8 mm was prepared in advance and I proceeded to assemble this kit. First I prepared a "skeleton" from a double keel frame, frames and conductor.
  12. I am hoping that this Wil be a row boat or something closely resembling one.i stsrted this as a test of my dimensions as this is my first build i wasnt sure on a few things so i just stsrted to draw and measure. This is what i have done so far.my next planned step is to pit together a jig to keep everything true and square as i make any needed adjustments as i start to cit out and assemble my keel and ribs.any thoughts or direction will be happily accepted
  13. Culé ou Barco de água Acima I got the plans for this boat at the Museu de Marinha in Lisbon when our cruise ship made an all-too-brief stop there. The museum is incredible. Barco de água Acima roughly translates to "boat of the upper river". It is designed to transport cargo from the shallow upper reaches of the Tagus River and via canals. The cruise was in 2005. I started work on the boat's tender in 2006. As you have already surmised, there have been long periods of inactivity... The boat's tender is called a chata, which directly translated means 'f
  14. Hello, first I would start this project the next fall, but things come often in an other way as you expect. During the building of the Dragon I often had a look at the model of the Victory from 1765. This model has such a beautiful barge on board, that I decided to build one when I'm ready with my Dragon. A plan was easily found and now I'm building. This is a barge with 10 oars and I think it will by right for a captain of a 74 gunner. I will build this barge in the same way Druxey has build his Greenwich barge. I will not explain so much, beca
  15. Hi fellow builders! So, first scratch build as well as first build in a fairly long time...what can be of this you say. Actually it is a build that I've been commissioned to do. That doesnt happen too often. For this particular commission I will not charge any payment, it is for pure fun. Quick background story (to keep with MSW rules of non-this and non-that content): Our pastor came up to me and asked about ideas for a candle holder to place in our church. A candle holder, usually found in Lutheran and Catholic churches, can have the form of a globe, a tree or ju
  16. Hello, I just received the ship, imaged attached, and need some help with identification. This was a ship my grandfather started restoring that was passed to my farther and now me. I do not believe they were able to make much progress at all and I would like to at least strip off the old paint, repair the rigging and sails, as well as missing pieces. My first question is any idea the make or model of this ship? Or how to determine what the sale sizing and quantity should be? From there is there any place to order the rigging and sails from? I am an engineer so am typically good
  17. Another of my small projects. I recently have seen the photo of the model boat, which was interesting me. I have wrote to the author of the model and he told me that this boat is a typical for Sardinia the southern Mediterranean area Andalucia. A couple of weeks ago I started building the model of this boats in a bottle. Best Regards! Igor.
  18. Background History. The Barco Rabelo (Rabelo boat) is a flat bottom boat first built in the 9th century to navigate the rapids of the Douro River in Portugal, carrying up to 100 barrels of port from the Port Houses to the coast as the river was then the only means of accessing the wineries. It had a crew of 12 men and was noted for its long steering oar which was managed from a raised platform above the port barrels. In 1887, a railway line was built along the banks of the Duoro and this started the demise of the Rabelo. Eventually roads were also built and the last off
  19. Hello every body This is a model I have previously build, was first trial for weathering; the weathering was a lot more than I expected, which resulted in an abondened boat :-) regards Mehmet.
