  1. Therefor the sources available are Homer’s works, Iliad ana Odyssey, the ancient vases of Homer’s life time, that is the time from the 8th to the 7th century bc and lastly the archaeological findings from the ship wrecks. Although is common knowledge that Homer’s epics refer to the Trojan war, that according to Heinrich Schliemann findings are dated in the 13th to the 12th century bc., Homer’s naval references correspond the naval reality of his life time. Out of a study of the above topics, I came to the conclusion (and I am not the first to do so) that Odysseus ship was
  2. Hello everyone, this is my first build log and my first model of any kind in over a decade. I used to do plastic. My only experience with woodworking was shop in school, and helping build some sets for plays in University. This will be my first wooden ship build ever. I've chosen Dusek's 1:72 scale 11th Century Viking Longship kit. It seems relatively simple, with minimal planking and rigging. Hopefully it is a good starter ship! I'm a big fan of these later Viking ships since seeing them at the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde, Denmark. It's really worth a visit if you are in Copenh
  3. I will be starting my third ship build log. Gokstad Viking Ship, a Dusek Ship Kits - 1:35 Scale The model is based on a find near Gokstad Norway in 1880. The prototype was built in mid ninth century. The ship was shown to be very seaworthy by Magnus Anderson in 1893. The ship had 32 oars and a square sail. I will be starting the actual building in a couple weeks but I would like to post the usual kit pictures.
  4. This seems to be the only available trireme kit. It is from a new Czech company - Dusek. I brought the kit because it is a trireme and curiosity about this new company's offering. The kit turn out to be much better than I expected. The laser cut bulkheads were nicely done, They fit perfectly without any adjustment. The plywood quality is very good. The laser scored deck verneer sheet was a surprise and superbly done. The wood verneeer quality is also top quality. The kit comes with a simple(not a tone of wording), yet effective illustrated instruction booklet. The 1 to 1 ratio plan
  5. Today I received the two bireme kits and I'm busy packing my tools, so it's time to start my build log. I also received 2 ready made (already stitched) painted sails. they look really neat imho. I'm still waiting for some books on the subject, but I'll get them before we leave for France. I start this build as a vacation project, but I'm of course aware this will take me much longer. It's just a kick off. We rent a small cottage in the Médoc (Bordeaux region). My wife loves to read books and I love to do things with my hands (or I go insane). I used to bring a
  6. With the extra leisure time on my hands I decided to break out another kit from my stash to have more to do while waiting for the glue to dry on my Resolution. Mamoli/Dusek Gretel This will be my 2nd time around with this kit. For some reason I am attracted to Mamoli kits. even though they have their shortcomings compared to some of the other manufacturers. My modeling goal is more of an art piece rather than an historically correct masterpiece, and since some Mamoli kits seem rather whimsical in some respects, that may be why I am attracted to them.
  7. Wishing all forum members all the best for 2015 and I hope you continue to have fun building your models. To start the year, I will be building a very small Viking Knarr for an elderly friend of mine. It is a Dusek model and, due to what I have found in researcing Knarr's, it will have a few modifications. The following photos are of the kit as it arrived. The kit contained everything it said it did, and from the first inspection, the parts look like they are in very good condition. The Plans are well drawn, but as I have been advised by Dusek, they are "simpli
  8. I don't actually have the kit yet, I ordered it last night from Model Expo, but I figured I'd go ahead and start the build log. I probably wouldn't have done a build log, but it looks like there aren't any for this kit yet, so I'll give it a go. I have done a build log in the past, but that was before the big crash wiped out the board. I think it was the HMS Pickle that I did here. I also did Chuck's Mayflower, but that was on another forum where he had been posting his prototype build. He had me do my log right at the end of his. I have surfed many of the build logs and there are
  9. I’ve been fiddlin’ around with model ships off and on for several years. Up to now, I’ve never really settled in and completed a display quality model ship. I’ve started a couple of build logs here on MSW; (1) Model Shipways Willie Bennett; which was almost completed but got lost somewhere moving, and (2) Model Shipways Fair American, which I still work on occasionally. I'm still relatively inexperienced so I’m always open to critique, comments, advice, and suggestions. Please don’t hesitate to jump in... About the kit… The Belle Poule (1932) kit is produced by Dusek Ship Kits
  10. I am finally ready to get stuck in on the Dusek La Real build. This is a very interesting build and one im very excited to document. My first build was the 1/48 scale HMS Surprise, whicjh was a monumental overreach for a first build, but it turned out better than i ever imagined, and i learned a ton along the way. My second build was a model airways Wright Flyer, a model that was fun but much less intensive. Now im ready and excited for more planking and rigging lol. The Real is a row galley famous for the Battle of Lepanto in 1571.
  11. The first big ship build I've undertaken and have been working on for awhile. This kit is from Dusek and was produced after they took over production from Mamoli after the fire at their factory in Italy. Dusek is in the Czech Republic. From seeing pictures of previous builds of the original kit, it looks as though Dusek changed/improved some of the materials used. The bulkheads and frame are of a different type of plywood, and the keel is now made of walnut. I've recently experienced good customer service from the company's owner Daniel. I had reached out on their website to see if I could get
  12. Greetings fellow shipbuilders! To clear something up before i start my log - this is my first model and I am new to the business of working with wood. I picked up this kit because it looked to me like something rather simple to start with and because I simply love antic history, being a history student. So the dilema was should i start with the small bireme kit or the larger and more complex trireme kit that Dusek is offering. SInce it was my first model I decided to play it simple and went for the small 455mm long Greek Bireme from 6th century BC. Other than that I decided that the mo
  13. My second model. I´m staying with Dusek ( my third sometime in the future will also be a Dusek as I have already bought it) This time it is the Hanse Kogge. It is also rated as a "advance beginner" so it should suit me fine. It is a clinker built ship, it will be fun to try that building style so to speak. Looking through the kit everything looked fine. I started to build a few days ago and here is the first update. Note that this build will proceed fairly slowly as it is summer and other things will take precedence but I will try to update every now and then.
  14. Greetings fellow Shipmates, This is my third kit; I have only finished one so far so it is fair to say I am a novice. I struggled as to whether I would start a build log for this nice little ship because the log that jack.aubrey has set up for this kit is exquisite - I also thought that all of my questions would be answered. However, I have learned some things that others might find useful after my stumblings. I won't do the kit contents review because jack has already covered that. I will bring you up to date with where I am at this point and leave a few learnings for others that may
  15. Good Day Shipmates, This is my one post build log of Daniel Dusek's Ship's Boat. This kit costs 5 Euros and is an incredibly worthwhile, fun build that takes somewhere in the vicinity of 20 to 30 hours to complete. I will hold off painting it until I decide which ship I decide to pair it with. Best, Ian
  16. This is my first real wooden ship model. I started with a Mini Mamoli Victory but that was a solid hull ship. I´m fairly happy with it so far. The hull/planking could have been done a lot better. I started in January this year. I should have been more careful planking the hull and done a better job of preparing the hull ( counting number of planks, better fairing and beveling and so on. Done a better scheme how thin I should have shaved the planks but in all I´m satisfied.
  17. Hiya Folks, Just read the log guidelines and just opening my log. Hope I've complied with the forum rules. Received my model today via UPS. Only my second build and first on here in front of an audience!!! Hope it goes well. Hoping to have it completed in a couple of months - work permitting. However setting deadlines is probably the worst thing I can possibly do. Deep breaths ... Next step gonna complete an inventory on the parts/materials and instructions and give first impressions later or tomorrow. Thanks Sean
  18. Here is a fun little kit to build. It is the ships boat by Dusek, the kit as you can see comes complete with pre-cut planks and frames. This kit is amazing as to how it all fits so well, I had no problems assembling, the instructions were clear and the wood was extremely good. Total build time including stand was approximately 22 hours. I would easily give this kit a two thumbs up and would recommend it to all. It is priced at 5 euros, making it even more attractive. After building this I defiantly am putting a full sized Dusek kit on my list. Enjoy
