  1. I ordered the Flirt and monday or tuesday she will be arriving. She is not so big as the previous builds that I make but I think it should be fun. Lenght overall : 656 mm Height overall : 492 mm Width overall : 230 m But first a little history: The Flirt was ordered together with Speedy in 1781 and both built by Thomas King, a private shipyard owner based in Dover with Flirt being launched on 4th March 1782, three months before Speedy. The Flirt/Speedy class of brig-sloops were the second class built to the new flush decked brig-sloop design
  2. I wasn't planning on doing a build log for this because I'm sort of a quick and sloppy builder and I don't see that it would be much of a benefit for the forum. There are some great builders here that create masterpieces, I am not one of them. But I need a way to procrastinate when I don't feel like working on the kit (or glue is drying) and I know this is an excellent place for information if I have any questions. So my posting of this log is for purely selfish reasons. 😀 Guess I'll get right into it. Pic of box, seems like a good starting place.
  3. I started a build log for HMS Terror (my first build) and it's been going OK. Not giving it up but it's on a slight back burner for now because (cue drumroll!) I've availed myself of a Master Shipwright edition of Chris Watton's new HMS Flirt. That's the danger of reading all of the amazing build logs on here. It gives you a terrible compulsion to buy another kit! Well I have sensible, logical reasons for going for one of the Vanguard models kits. They seem to be state of the art in kit design from what I've read on here. Plus they have a cracking manual and no corners have b
  4. Afternoon! Ok, this one is going to take me a little longer than the prototypes of VM's Fifie and Zulu! I'll try to keep this updated as often as I can if there's some real interest. Flirt is based on the previous Speedy kit, but with some notable differences. The model itself won't have a launch as standard, and there are differences to the rig too, plus the deadeyes are replaced with pear wood heart blocks. She also won't be coppered below the waterline, instead being painted white. Before I kick off with the hull, I built the temporary cradle. This is only temporary as there's a
