  1. Hi Folks, This is my first time here so hopefully everything will upload correctly! This model was started nearly two decades ago but ended up in the loft due to career changes and various other factors. Primarily the build was stopped because I became petrified of ruining the stern section in the absence of any real dimensions or detail. No one will be surprised I guess that, yes, this was my first model which I got at an engineering exhibition whilst displaying some metal. At the time of purchase a guy tapped me on the shoulder and asked me that same question. He said I was looking at a
  2. I am going to join the club of modelers constructing or having constructed the ship. Frankly speaking, their construction and kit reports (gimo, Bender, fmodair, schiffebastler) urged me to order the kit. Mainly the very sophisticated report of Frank (fmodair) increased my wish to build the ship. I do not have the skills of the others mentioned. Thus this blog is mainly to those who rely on the material provided by Corel. Content of the kit is well described in construction reports of the club members. Most of the material seems to be of good quality but I am already wondering h
  3. Hello, After finishing my Corel Vasa build in January 2017. I took the year off to help my wife with projects for the wedding of our daughter. (Of course, I did take the time to build a model of a Concord Stagecoach on the side!!) Back in January of this year, I purchased a Corel kit of the Real De France from the very nice people at Ages of Sail, with the intention of starting it right away. However, due to frozen pipes at my elderly parents home, I have spent the last few months with contractors, getting their house put back together. So now I am finally to get back int
  4. Hi everybody ! As I mentioned on my new members introduction, I restarted my modeling hobby during this lockdown after many years of inactivity. Searching for a new plastic kit online, I found a really good opportunity to get a HMS Victory Corel model at a fraction of retail value. The price was so tempting and the model so challenging that I decided to buy it. It arrived home on August 28th, so it has been almost a month of great enjoyment. This is only my second wood model ship after the Artesania Latina's Swift. I was satisfied with the result, but planking it was really a night
  5. I am very glad to have found this website with, luckily for me, many build logs on the Wasa from Corel. I will use many of the tips and pictures posted in these logs for my guidance and as a example of what gifted modelbuilders can achieve. I have bought a 'used' model of the Wasa about a year ago for a low price. It was in a very bad shape and the modelbuilder (not the person from which I have bought the model) did some things really well, but other parts were absolutely desastrous. Also it had suffered from neglect and the masts were broken off. When I saw the model as it wa
  6. La Couronne by Kurt Suleski - Corel - Scale 1:100 - 1636 - First wooden ship build Hello everyone! Like my father before me, I sailed merchant ships as an Engineering Officer, and have always loved square riggers. After eight years living aboards ship, seawater still flows in my veins twenty-five years later. I built several plastic ones as a boy, and now am returning to the hobby decades later, this time with experience in medieval weapon and armour smithing, carpentry, machining and other trade skills. A decision had to be made as to which era of sailing ship to ch
  7. Yes another American who wanted to build Victory before even knowing about MSW. I actually did not realize how popular an idea it was. But my knowledge of history Included Nelson at Trafalgar and it never went out of my mind. I decided to purchase the Corel Victory kit from Cornwall at the suggestion of Keith. I will not be posting very much for a while. It will take time to size this kit up and understand within reason where I am going. Any ideas about starting are welcome.
  8. Bought this very old Corel Unicorn kit for pennies a while back....whilst doing the rigging on Bellona, I need something else to do as rigging gets on my nerves. Will post some pics soon.
  9. I once had a build log of my Prins Willem here on MSW. I also had a backup of it on my PC. Some months ago I deleted that one.... I wish I hadn't done so I will try to recreate some of it over the next weekends. Perhaps that will give me some inspiration to continue her rigging, as I haven't done much over that last months. Jan
  10. This is my second boat model. Mostly I picked it because I've crewed on a 90' Baltic gaff-rigged schooner and loved the idea of red sails. This kit comes in four languages. It appears the English part was translated by someone whose English was their second language. "Sandpaper" was written as "Glass paper." Perhaps because glass is made from sand? Anyway I'm enjoying it because there is lots of leeway and forgiveness. I had to make some changes because they apparently designed it on paper and some things simply did not work. Like the spar hoist went two-block and the sail was too
  11. Well, here we go. Thanks to invaluable advice on my members introduction page I've managed to start construction.
  12. Hi there, Welcome to my building log. Resumed the building this year and wanted to share some of learnings. More pictures than words:) This is my first build and i have obtained plenty of useful information from this forum. 1. Align frames straight and sand them properly and smoothly which will make much easier for planking 2. Use the first layer of planking as practice. Measure the gap and do some math. In short, the middle is much wider than the front and end. There are several videos in YouTube that i found helpful for planking. i would suggest to finish one pl
  13. I have always wanted to build a cross section, and since my next build will be HMS victory, so I have chosen corel's Victory and corel's victory cross section in 1:98 scale. I 've been told, that corel's kit is quite old and in some parts outdated. some pictures from cargohold, I have added pump house, shot holder and hull ribs
  14. Hello, I am not very good in English, but I can give it a try I am already building for almost 7 months. Only pictures can show what I did already... I am not a professionel, this is just my second boat.
  15. Started going over the instructions and list of materials before I begin this great ship.
  16. OK, now that I have some time I'll start a build log. As mentioned in my intro I picked up Corel Line's pre-cut hull Mayflower model. Probably just my speed as don't think I'm yet ready for planking a hull. We'll see how this one goes before I think about what may be next. So the pics attached today cover a week of activity - Last Saturday (8/1) to yesterday (Friday, 8/7). I am trying to work on the kit a couple of hours after work each day; we'll see how that goes. 1st pic shows the kit contents. 2nd & 3rd are with the upper sides, keel and bowsprit on -
  17. I have been working on this build for two-and-a-half years. I have followed harlequin's build all along. His work is excellent and solved several problems I've had. This is my second build; HMS Surprise-Mamoli was the first. After decades of plastic models, I switched to wood because I wanted a change of material and history topics. The pictures show the current state of things. The spars are also done. I'm waiting for a set of pre-built sails to arrive from Europe. I want to attach them in furled position to the spars and then mount the spars.
  18. Another purchase off eBay. It’s obviously an older kit judging by the metal. i thought it was amusing that in another purchase i found a model expo ad for this exact kit dated 1995... anyways, it looks like a good time so here we go again.
  19. Hello again! I have started second planking but am undecided how to proceed beyond this point. Photos show that midships I need 10 more planks @5mm or a fraction less. At the stern post I have 70mm to fill. I'm minded to put in four stealers, probably half stealers so I don't cut into two adjacent planks. These would be quite short not going much further than frame 13 as marked. The only alternative I can see is to narrow the planks at midships and fan them out towards the stern to gain width. I would need to get more material to do this. I've already got one stealer above the g
  20. This will be my build of the Corel Resolution kit. I was attracted to this kit based on a build I saw at Model Ship Builder This is a Japanese site with many very nice models represented. I favor the natural wood/antique look with my models, so the style of this build serves as inspiration for what I hope to accomplish. I have a rather long winded prologue that follows, so feel free to skip to the actual build description that should show up down there somewhere… There has been some discussion here at MSW about the basis for this kit design. It is pretty much agreed
  21. Hello! I am seeking help with my second planking having made a few errors on the first which I managed to get away with. It was touch and go trying to avoid crowding at the bow. I'm lining the hull with strakes to work out the best runs this time. I've read and think I understand the tutorials but still have a doubt at the bow section. Between the front tip of the garboard strake and the marking strake is 36mm (along the rabbet) but between the tip and red push pin is only 30mm. Should I fit a drop strake around this point I wonder? I tried wetting and bending a previous marker strake but
  22. ***NOTE - in January 2016, I decided to close this build log. I'll be building the Lyme as a new scratch build using the NMM plans, rather than try to bash the Corel Unicorn kit*** ***NOTE - in August 2014, I decided to build the HMS Lyme, the sister ship to the Unicorn, by bashing the Corel Unicorn kit. So, the log until then will be referring a lot to the Unicorn*** Hi my friends, now that I finished the Badger, I'm moving onto my second build, which will be the Corel Unicorn. The kit is scale 1:75, which ends up being approximately 33" in length and 29" in height, and s
  23. Hello again, my friends. I´ve come back to show you a new project I intend to see through in less time than the last ones. It´s funny to perceive we may be away from the shipyard for some time, but it still calls us rightly into it´s arms. So, to begin with, a presentation of the kit´s content, followed by impressions and the reason why my title has a "modified" in it. The box is a strong one, better than Artesania Latina´s Red Dragon box, with some info in it, pretty default. On openning it we can see that magic things that makes us happy and going.
  24. This is my first build of a model wooden ship. I chose the Endeavour as it is part of our nations discovery, and plenty of others being built to see gather tips and trips for the build. I am using 2 pack epoxy glue(no nails) for all the timber to timber joining. From what I have seen, the build may take years, and just as well I have started now, plenty of time to finish in retirement - when it comes. Enough waffle, some pictures and see where this goes.
