Good day my fellow modellers, I've built scale models since my early teens and also tried out some ships, but nothing more came of it. When I got a copy of the online PC-game "Naval Action" by Game-Labs, I realized, that a did want to try ship building for a second time. My dream ship was (and still is) the american-built topsail-schooner Prince de Neufchâtel from the war of 1812. I even found plans, but had to acknowledge, that building it just with passion, but without experience would lead to a terrible result. So I looked for some ship's plans to practice and found a few.
Pride in the Pacific 1982 In late 1976 I got a job as a laborer on a construction site in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. At the site they were building a Baltimore Clipper schooner named Pride of Baltimore. Pride under construction in November 1976, just about when I started there. Five years later, on my 21st birthday, I reported on board as Pride's newest crew member. I spent two months aboard the boat in charge of her guns as she took part in the bicentennial reenactment of the battle of Yorktown. Yours truly is at the top right, in the cocked hat.
Hi. Its time for a new project.. Been looking at this for sometime now. I have made several trips to Korea and visited the war Museum in Seoul. This was my first encounter of this ship. There is a kit of this ship made by www.youngmodeler.com at 1/64 scale There are also a few on E-Bay by the same manufacture. There are no drawing of this ship and there are a lot of replicas made but most of them are very different. Very confusing. There are a few referrals to the Turtle ship here on MSW. including a Kit build by Wim500. Also lots of nice photos by Grim
