  1. My old log was lost, as was the Hannah one. After a lot of thought, I have decided to just restart both where I left off. I didn’t save them, and given the choice between spending time on the computer and spending time in the workshop, it was an easy choice. I’m looking forward to the workshop in 2 weeks. I redid my keel (pictures below are the fifth redo). I had originally planned to use the previous one, but had made that with the dimensions from the contract, which are slightly different than the plans. When I made the framing jig and it was loose on the keel, I realized I m
  2. I hesitated starting this topic in the Echo Cross Section area because it will not really be a build log and it will probably take a long time for me to complete. In 2012 I had the pleasure of taking the Echo course presented by David and Greg. Over that weekend I was able to raise two frames and purchased the completion kit which included necessary wood, armament and a CD with the plans. Atalanta has taken me longer than anticipated to complete and Echo has been ignored. I knew I would be traveling this month and did not want to risk injuring Atalanta but when I considered a month without
  3. I don't have room for either a full size table saw or large bandsaw, so I took advantage of a program at our local university where alumni can pay a reasonable annual fee to gain access to the woodshop at the craft center on campus. This is a boon for my woodworking efforts as it is only a 20 minute drive from my home and while the equipment is not perfect it is fully workable for my needs. Last night I took a stab at first resawing efforts with some Castello, Holly, and Pear I had obtained to make lumber for my Echo Cross Section fitting out kit. All in all I was pr
  4. Thanks to everyone here on the forum for the warm welcome since joining NRG and MSW last month. I've enjoyed getting to know folks and have had a great time pondering how to make a serious start in the model shipbuilding hobby. After much contemplation, I decided to tackle an Echo Cross Section for my first POF build. Much of that decision came from wonderful feedback received by members of the MSW forum...thank you to all for your candid and helpful comments. I also decided on the Echo Cross Section because of David and Greg's excellent series of books on building the Swan clas
  5. Greetings All! I've just joined the Nautical Research Guild and am looking forward to learning from others as I get serious about model shipbuilding. I've been a modeler all my life, researching and scratchbuilding extensively as a part of my Live Steam Locomotive efforts. Along the way I've learned metalworking and have learned my way around a lathe and mill that helps my modeling efforts immensely. I've always been interested in ship modeling, particularly plank-on-frame construction and admiralty hull models. Since I'm not getting any younger (now 58), I decided a few month
  6. I will re-post some pictures of progress when I get to my home computer. I did not save the comments from earlier posts. I read about some cache recovery techniques that I assume the Administrators have evaluated. Maury
  7. Hi Guys, Well I'm back and feeling better. I will post my photos back up soon. Just thought I would leave an FYI that I did not leave like the Ol MSW site did. So give me a bit and I will re-post my pictures some time this week.... cheers Mario
  8. This will be my second Echo cross section. After raising all the frames on my earlier attempt I was not satisfied with the quality of my work and decided not to take it any further. The Echo makes a very nice looking model as is evidenced by build logs like Maury's and others and I contemplated a second effort. I am a member of the Ship Model Society of New Jersey and I brought my Echo with me to a meeting after the last of the frames was raised. There was so much interest that the club voted to make it a "group project" where everyone builds their own version of the same model. 12
  9. Echo update #8 is completed and posted on our website http://www.admiraltymodels.com. My version below shows the stock framing package on the port side and the fully fitted out version in progress on the starboard side.. Please keep in mind when ordering the framing package that it is the complete framing only. The fitting out instructions are free of charge and posted on our website every few months. We are hoping to develop and sell a fitting out package in the near future complete with laser cut deck beams, gun carriage and other details. Stay tuned.
  10. Well All - Here is the beginning of my Scratch Building career, I chose the ECHO cross section from Admiralty Models because of the work by Greg & David in the TFFM books that I own and intend to build a Swan class one day but needed something easier than a full model to start with. This is going to be very slow to begin with as I am working on my Confederacy which is about half way completed and will be taking most of my limited modelling time. Also I am still building up my collection of tools, I have plenty of hand tools and a beautiful Dewalt scroll saw, but I still wish to get a J
  11. Hello Everyone, I will be attending the upcoming Admiralty Models Workshop on the Echo Class Cross Section given by David and Greg. I'll start by saying I messed up the parts Greg sent by using a black construction paper that was too thick. No shop in my area had any of the correct paper. So I sawed up some boxwood I had on hand from Hobby Mill and started over. What I came up with was some tissue paper that I colored with a brown 'Sharpie'. This seems to work ok. The False Keel The Keel and False Keel And the jig made
  12. Hi All, I'm reposting my old pictures. Here are the the pics of the keel being assembled. Here is the Keel marked for the rabitt and it being cut out. Here is the false keel.
  13. Hi All, I wil be attending David's and Greg's upcoming workshop in Baltimore. As the most inexperienced person who has ever attended one of these workshops (seriously) I'm counting on the great build logs that used to reside here being reposted. In anticipation of the workshop I had started to check out the build logs that were here and they were a great help in understanding what needed to be done. Earlier this week I received the wood for the keel from Greg and this weekend will be busy down in the shop doing my "homework". I'll start posting as soon as I have some wo
