  1. Hello all! This is my first time posting any thing here at MSW, I watch a lot of your builds and have really enjoyed my time here. I figured it was time for me to post my own build log and hopefully get this next build as close to perfect as possible. I plan to post here as often as I can, maybe once a week, hopefully more, as I only have about an hour a day to work on this. Slow and steady wins the race. The model itself is a beautiful model, I’ve seen completed posts and pictures of the completed build and so I have really been looking forward to this.
  2. Hello everyone. This is my first build log and it is for the Donald McKay designed extreme clipper Flying FIsh. The ship has been described well in other logs, but the summary is here: (wikipedia and http://www.bruzelius.info/Nautica/News/BDA/BDA(1851-11-04).html) Built: 1861, East Boston Shipyard Length Overall: 220 ft Length between perpendiculars: 210 ft Length at keel: 202 ft Maximum beam: 40 ft Tons (OM): 1566 tons Originally owned by the firm of Sampson and Tappan of Boston. She was wrecked in Fuzhou in 1858, sold to a company in the Phill
  3.

  4. Background I am a retired Professional Civil Engineer. I live with my beautiful wife in Ypsilanti Michigan. I am so glad to have access to this site. I wanted to create a log of this particular build because it should be the culmination of the last 10 years of ship building. I am 71 and this might be my last ship and I would like to pass on the few things I've learned in the process. I built all of my other ships as "legacy presents" for any of my children that wanted one. So far I've built the 1805 Swift (I kept that one, I'll give it away after I finish the clipper), the Albatross
  5. First ship built as a teenager USS Kearsarge, plastic hull and more intricate parts than I could count. My second ship began age 59 the Flying Fish American Clipper one plank at a time.
  6. Hi I just became a member today. This is my first model Flying Fish from Model Shipways. I plan to build to specifications . A copper hull and presented with full sail including Stunsls. I would like any modeler to make suggestions on my build. I am new and any information or guidance will be welcome. I'm sure some of my Technics will be imaginative and will invoke discussion.
  7. Hello! Sometime ago i walked into a model shop in Italy and they had beautiful ships I couldn't afford. The shop owner encouraged me to build one. So I bought the flying fish schooner from Corel. Investigating my new project I found some lovely plans, a lot of wood (in plank form) and almost no instructions. I stared at the assembled wood, the beautiful diagrams; holding my little pot of glue, and wept. I am stubborn and have been struggling along, making many, many, many mistakes. I am embarrassed when I see other models on the internet. But for bette or worse I will finish my little ship. An
