  1. I have started a new project. This time the Soleil Royal model in 1:70 scale I will try to build two models at the same time. One in the color scheme shown in the model manual and the other a little more valorized and in shade (rosewood - venge) colors.
  2. The VICTORY’s keel was laid down in my shipyard at the end of 2011. This is the third ship released in installments by the magazine. That is why I started building without knowing what I was setting myself in for. Having already assembled the hull, it was evident that the ship would be large and heavy and complicated to build. About the time I completed the first layer of planking to the gunports - I put it aside to complete first simpler models. This interruption lasted 3.5 years until January of 2017. I began work on it again and this time took it firmly in hand, without distractions until c
  3. Starting a new project which is bit of a departure from my previous projects. I have bought (and received) the full kit for the 1/250 scale model of the IJN Yamato. This is mixture of standard wooden hull construction, photo etched parts and die cast metal parts for the superstructures and guns, etc. I have had to sort through the delivery and I believe I have received all the parts, there were 90 different packs. The kit does not include a build manual but this is available on line in pdf format as 22 separate files. I have printed out the first 12 files.
  4. Just had a major 7 week vacation through Europe and arrived home to find the first of 12 packs from England for the Vasa kit. I saw the original Vasa in Sweden in 2012 and always wished I could get this ship for my collection and to my surprise England has the kit and allowed us guys down under to purchase direct. I am exited to see the parts are of the same high standard as the Souvereign of the Seas I finshed early this year. photo’s will follow when i commence serious construction
  5. Hi Everyone new forum member and have the HMS victory underway. i had been looking at doing a wooden ship for many years and never got around to it. then i saw the new Vasa released by De Agostini and given i am of Danish descent thought this would be a good start.... then i saw the amount of paint works and thought maybe not. so i did a bit more looking and coincedently a complete De Agostini HMS Victory came up on our local Ebay type website. This was a kit that the seller had purchased on the weekly subscription so had spent over 2 years collecting it. then they held onto it for anothe
  6. Hello everyone I'd like to start a new log for the Yamato. This kit is the one DeAgostini brought out a couple of years ago here in Belgium. I was able to buy this kit from anoter shipmodeller who had lost intrest in building her. He let her go for only 50 € so this was really a bargain This is what i got : I must admit i'm a little terrified of the adventure ahead of me, after watching the the superb logs and builds of Greg's Yamato and Carl's Musashi. The latter being the Yamato's sister ship. I hope i can do her credit by building a nice model of
  7. Hi all. Here are some pics of my first model ship build and middle section. I finished this model in 2013 I think the scale is about 1:50
  8. This is the 12 month subscription model by DeAgostini from Model Space. It arrives in 12 separate packages spread over a year and each arrives with a color magazine with historical information about the ship and instructions. The packaging isn't anything special, just a normal cardboard box with various small bags and plastic packages of parts. At this point in time I have received the first two months. The first picture is the first month's supplies and the second is the second month deeper down in the same box for consolidation. Here is the cover and insi
  9. Hello everybody. I finally took the plunge to start a building log for my first wooden shipmodel. In the past, to be more specific during teenage period, I started to build many plastic models – airplanes, helicopters, locomotives, aircraft carriers, and finally, two shipmodels – ‘Bounty’ and ‘La Belle Poule’. I was long flirted with the idea of building a wooden shipmodel, but I have never found the necessary impetus. What the heck - life is full of twists. Two years ago I had the pleasant surprise to note that DeAgostini launched a series of magazines, under the name ‘Big Hist
  10. In january 2011 Deagostini started to sell a magazine: Great Ships, and in 100 magazines you could build a Galleon from XVII century, 24 guns, 78 x 66 cm and that is open in one side I also started to buy and build this ship, even i had already Something else in progress. I see that many of us like to work to 2 or 3 pieces at a time, but that are in diferent stages This is the start The firs number, some parts as they come, and number 3 close
  11. Hi! I m making the models with the 2-3 weeks system ( 2 weeks only scotish, 2 weeks only vasa) If you want to see previous stages of build watch this: http://santisimatrinidad.jun.pl/viewtopic.php?t=2242&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0 (polish) I m in the 48 number of dea book. *** oppossed to instructions i stains the planks, because instruction watch of the vasa not satisfied me (PAINT ALL HULL WHAT???) And the stage that i was most afraid of began. The planting of the 2 layer planks. Result was really satisfied me. Planks are from the kit,
  12. This is my build of the Deag Vasa . Having built the Corel offering I vowed never to build one again until I saw this one. The main thing that persuaded me as it has been designed with the help of the Vasa museum and Fred Hocker the museum director. It's not 100% accurate but as close as you can get with the restrictions of a commercial kit and a lot more historical accurate than anything out there I have downloaded the instructions from the build site and looking at them it's really impressive with hundreds of cast carvings and good quality wood. I have the first 6 issues and the quali
  13. I have since I was a child been interested in models. The interest first emerge when I at 12 years of age visited the Wasa museum in Stockholm and laid eyes on their 1/10 model of the ship. Since then I have but some plastic models under my belt but I have a very limited experience with wooden models. I tried to build the Gothenburg from Billing Boats but quickly realized that the instructions provided was not enough for someone with my limited experience and the build was soon abandoned. A couple of month ago I stumble across DeAgostini and their monthly subscription models. Thei
  14. Przepraszam za słaby angielski Vasa DeAgostini, skala 1:65, wydanie polskie. Obecnie pracuję nad etapem 50 - 55 kolekcji. Kilka zdjęć z historii budowy modelu.
  15. Started the uss constitution today. This is my first build, and will post some pics later in the week..
  16. Well here goes my first attempt at a build log. I've built a few wood models before this, but this is my first major build. I like the idea of a subscription option. It makes it possible for me to do a high end kit such as the Sovereign. As I go along there will be some changes made. I like the look of the unpainted wood on the sides of the ( bulwarks)? Of the poster that they send with the first issue. I will also add the triangle deadeyes as seen on the poster. I read somewhere that that ship is not the actual model that I will build, but that is ok with me. Watching the builds of so many ot
  17. Hello MSW! This is my first wooden ship and I wanted something that had lots of instructions before jumping off the deep end into something that just has plans and some vague instructions that assume I know lots of nautical terminology. I settled on the model space HMS victory. I like large models and this one is living up to my expectations. At nearly 50" long and 34" tall once complete, I was certain this would become the centerpiece of my house. For those not familiar with model space, each kit comes in monthly shipments. There are 12 installments for the Victory and each one comes wit
  18. Hi all now I have finished my build of the Soleil Royal I thought I would start this one. The X section comes with the kit of the whole ship which is quite cool but I will start that one probably in the winter. I have made a start on building the ribs by putting them on the kell as you can see I have been building it outside because of the lovely weather we are having at the moment. Once dry the inner planks have been glued into place and the mast foot fitted . I decided to plank over the mast foot as staining it didn't look right. Next job making the lumber board and strake which was a lot mo
  19. Welcome to my log. Sovereign of the Seas was a 17th-century warship of the English Navy. She was ordered as a 90-gun first-rate ship of the line of the English Royal Navy, but at launch was armed with 102 bronze guns at the insistence of the king. She was later renamed Sovereign, and then Royal Sovereign. The ship was launched on 13 October 1637 and served from 1638 until 1697, when a fire burned the ship to the waterline at Chatham.

  20. Well, I got the first two issues today. Unlike the Victory and such there is no magazine, only the building instructions. There was also a poster of the Vasa. 3 frames, stern decorations, thread and one cannon is what you get in these first two issues. I promised my 10-year old son that he could "help" me build it so I have to wait until he comes home from school before building can start. I will continue later this evening.
  21. Hi all this is my first build on this site so please be patient . I will be changing a few things on the kit. rgd Martyn
  22. Hi , This is my first attempt to show my progress on the forum. Excuse me if it is a little grey. First off I am delighted with the kit supplied by De Agostini in magazine form although it is a bit annoying that we must wait for the monthly delivery. I have built thee RED BARON in the same manner and it came out pretty good. The SOS is the first undertaking of this scale and I have built two previous wooden kits: One from Holand and it was a BOTTER boat and the other is the PORT JACKSON supplied by Modellers Shipyard. I would like at this stage to sincerely thank Fifthace and Tomick at th
  23. On May 3, 2009 I officially started to build the Santìsima Trinidad's Cross Section. It is the second part of the De Agostini collection made up of 160 weekly issues in which you build A) the entire model and later the Cross Section. It seemed me quite simple to build and I thought to follow with due diligence the kit instructions. This was my first cross section and I didn't want to take any risks. In that period of time I had another project still active: the Armed Launch 1803 by Panart and it was in concurrence with this one. I published the images of the finished mo
  24. Hello to everybody . My nickname is Jack.Aubrey and I was in the past a strong follower of ModelShipWorld, both with my own logs and as a normal, simple but very interested reader . . I knew some days ago what happened to the old Modelshipworld forum . . it was a big loss, a dramatic loss. I hope for the future this will never happen . . anyway I have decided to participate actively to this new adventure. I'm working on a model of the french "Le Soleil Royal", from De Agostini. I started this new project on Sunday April 18, 2010 and I have maintained a personal WIP on http://w
