  1. This is the new project that has to be fully researched yet. There is some cursory information for this model in the Thesis by Daria Elizabeth Merwin pages 57-65 This is a preliminary drawing to a scale of 1:16. it has been reduced to fit the page. and a PDF 16th scale pauline.pdf I will add information as it comes together before the build starts.
  2. I purchased this kit in the beginning of 2008 and it is my first attempt at model ship building. I love the ocean and boats and have often admired the model boats that I have seen displayed. I am comfortable with woodworking tools, but I found there is a lot to learn. I am grateful that this forum exists I worked diligently on the kit for the first 3+ months and was able to complete the hull. The construction for the most part went without incident, as I learned by reading, researching, doing, and sometimes re-doing. I do remember the challenge of bending some of the hull planking
  3. Hello everyone. You will either be intrigued by this or bin it straight away. The foreground.... I am currently building a huge Bluenose which is going to take a very long time to finish. I wanted something to sail " now" that will not take long to build. I have learnt now that there is a " Footy " class RC sailing yacht that is a class in itself, has its dedicated set of rules, are quick to build, inexpensive, fun to build and then you get to sail them!

  4. I found an old copy of Howard Chapelle's The National Watercraft Collection on the $2.00 rack at the local used bookstore. In it I saw the following photo of a catboat in Gloucester harbor. Needless to say, the sail caught my attention. This photo is most likely of Aqua Pura, a waterboat that supplied the Gloucester fishing fleet with fresh water. These boats were commonly catboat-rigged and could carry about 150 barrels of water in a wooden tank located under the deck amidships. The water was discharged into fishing schooners' water barrels via a hand-operated pump and a long hose,
  5. Hi all, I thought I'd start a build log for this little Cape Cod Catboat that the Admiral gave me for Christmas. I am following Marcus's excellent build log (http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/11964-cape-cod-catboat-by-marcus-botanicus-–-bluejacket-–-scale-¾”1’/#entry362573). I am using my own milled wood: walnut for the hull and deck, Padauk for the pilot house area, maple for the deck planks. I am not painting. I will not spend time repeating aspects of the kit and instructions as Marcus has already covered that. Except to say that you must be very careful lining things up, thinking
