Greetings. This is my first attempt at a build log, though it is far from being my first ship. Having recently finished HMS Kingfisher by LSS (see gallery), the Revenge caught my eye and I decided to have a go of it. For those of you who decide to follow along, please note that my work on models can be sporadic at times. I will try to post updates as I complete each page or 2 of the manual. Kit was ordered from Ages of Sail and here is what comes in the box.
Hi @ all! I would like to present here my ongoing project. It is the Mayflower from 1620 after the plans of Waldemar Nowy (Danzig, Poland) 1975: "Historic Sailship MAYFLOWER" (based on the Mayflower II) I started this build about in November 2010. I had several breaks during the build due to my private situation. At the moment I work on the cannons and the masts. Here are some pictures of my progress so far. I would also like to post some of my techniques I used as soon as time allows me to. Rgds, Radek
Hello Ship Mates I am about to start an Elizabethan Galleon, from the plans that I purchased from The Model Dockyard in Cornwall, UK. These are a set of Harold A Underhill's plans and are of no pacific ship but a set of very general Galleons. I believe that I will build this little ship in the line of the Golden Hind. As normal for me, I will not be trying to build an authentic replica of the real Golden Hind but that of an English Galleon in the times of Queen Elizabeth. I have barely touched on the perimetry start of this build. So far top day I have scanned and printed the keel and hull forms. Now they must all be cut out and matted with their appropriate other halves and then taped together, not a big job but very time-consuming. I will be trying to add around 12 LED Lights to this build, both on deck and below deck and in the ships holes. A first for me and I have been searching the web for a lot of information on these LED Lights, so it kind of looks like this will be a build in its self. My Admiral Bernadette has eyed up the sails and she has very generously volunteered her services to sew me up a set. I will add a few pictures below of my plans for the new build the Golden Hind, The picture below of the replica of the Golden Hinde in the London area of the UK was taken by Jose L Marin who has given permission on the web that this can be used with recognition of the owner Jose L Marin. I thank you very much, Jose L.Marin.The picture below of the Golden Hinde is the creation of Jose L Marin who on the web has given permission for this picture to be used by the public ENJOY Regards Lawrence THE GOLDEN HIND Regards Lawrence Picture by Jose L Marin
