  1. 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

  3. My previous construction of a kit.. ..is coming to an end, so it's time to start with a new one... Another construction I'm starting is scratch build, I've decided for a ship from the 16th century, a galleon, which I always liked, specifically 1597 Roter Lowe.. I've had the 1:60 plan at home for many years, it's a copy of a well-known German plan.. The scale is close to fifty, still very detailed and mainly the ship hasn't got much decoration, which I do not dare make yet. I'm leaving 3D aside, I hope paper plans will do.. Right fr
  4. Well, here goes……my first nervous steps into the world of the scratch build! This will be my second model and as such, I think POB is a wiser choice. Maybe the next build will be POF, but that’s in the distant future. I really have admired the beautiful and ornate galleons of the 17th and 18th centuries and was finding it a hard decision as to which one to build. The problem was solved when I received the plans for the San Felipe. They were 1:75 and I changed the scale to 1:96 so it would not take up as much real estate in our home and thus be displayed more easily. I know it will

  6. Hi all. Here are some pics of my first model ship build and middle section. I finished this model in 2013 I think the scale is about 1:50
  7. Recently our club, Shipwrights of Central Ohio, was queried about restoring an old family heirloom. We were sent photos of a scratch built galleon with uniquely painted sails. The next day I was digging thru that "I'll get to this soon" pile of plans and I opened an envelope with plans from Popular Science, dated 1926. The picture of the finished ship on the instruction booklet reminded me of the photos we had seen at our meeting. After some quick phone conversations with my mates, I contacted the ship owners. The ship, the Nuesta Senora de Afortunado, had been built by their father in t
  8. *** EDIT *** Shouts of joy as I reveal that I've found the pics from this build. Reconstruction is now possible. *** /EDIT *** Hello and welcome to my first build log. It will be a somewhat unusual one. I started this project during the rainy summer of last year, to have something to do while the rain was turning the lawn into something resembling a WW1 trench system. It's a toy ship with a 17th century-ish feel to it. I'm calling it a toy ship due to the fact that it's meant to actually set sail - it will patrol a nea
  9. Hello to all. First time for me / no experience at all I started a project using some plans found at (link removed by admin because of copyright violations). I ve chossen the Black Pearl so after I downloaded the plans with the help of youtube I manage to print them at the corect scale. The next step was to search for as much info I can get, downloaded lot of pictures with the ship from the movie some from kits allready finished viewed some videos. a lot of measurements details I manage to get them from real pictures of the ship using my imagination. Sure I m not the only one t
  10. Hello modelshipworld! I am Clement and I'm here to present my galleon. I'm an avid fan of sailing ships. I have been learning, watching, and modelling them by cardboard. However, I haven't been building for a long long while until my little brother asked me if I could make a ship (he showed me a picture of the Andalucia galleon replica) and I said "sure thing!" I thought of building it with cardboard however, he wanted to see it float in water. Sure, you can float a cardboard ship on water but it won't last as long as a ship made of wood. And I was looking for other ma
  11. Hello to all friends modellers ... Here is a short presentation of an ancient lady from the 16th century. She originally comes from Ragusa, a town - republic from the Coast of the Adriatic Sea. In the begining it would be nice to mention something about Ragusa, nowdays city of Dubrovnik : Some sources say that Ragusa was founded in the 7th century, named after a "rocky island" called Lausa, by refugees from Epidaurum (Ragusa Vecchia), a Greek city situated some 15 km to the south, when that city was destroyed in the Slavic incursions. Excavations in 2007 re
  12. I have been working on the model for quite some time, but before there was no certainty that it would be possible to finish the job. The project is not tied to a specific historical ship and is a collective image of a transitional vessel between the beginning and the galleon of the late 16th century, which was widely used at that time in the Mediterranean basin.
  13. I have started the next project, an elizabethanian galleon. I use some plans I did find in two old german modeling books, Mondfeld, Historische Schiffsmodelle, a german classic from the early 70., and Stoeckel,Risse von Schiffen des 16. und 17. Jahrhunderts. Both authors showed very similar plans of an elizabethanian galleon, named Golden Hind or ex Pelican. It may be a model of Drakes Golden Hind. How Golden Hind looked exactly is unclear. But I like the plans, and they also seems quite right for the type Galeone of the english sailors in the time of queen Elizabeth Tudor. Fi
  14. I have had an interest for some time in the E. Armitage McCann models and always thought I'd try one someday. I came across a 1927 version of his Pirate fellucca and Spanish Galleon book on Amazon for $11 and decided to make the purchase. It was in great condition for a 91 year old book. It even had the plans in the back sleeve. A friend of mine if the Rocky Mountain Ship wrights happened to be restoring a McCann Constitution so I thought I'd show it to him. He recognized it right away as he has a 1926 copy and he asked how interested I was in building a McCann model. I told
  15. Hello, this is my galleon ship construction. It is my second ship build. I will share photos of the build, hope you will like. Friesland The highly ornate Friesland dates from about 1663, when she was launched as part of the fleet of the "Seven Provinces" of the Netherlands. As part of the allied Aglo-French fleet, she took part in the Battle of Solobay in 1672. Mamoli's double plank-on-bulkhead kit, based on reliable Dutch documentation, features 80 turned brass cannon and over 50 gilded metal ornaments. The model is a magnificent replica, complete with authentic
  16. Hello ship model enthusiasts. My early bread and butter hull videos may be viewed at -cedliz1- on youtube. The actual scale of the model is unknown to me.This is fly by sight. A picture by radojavor and childhood memories were two of many impetus (impeti). 4 months in and 40 to go.
  17. all, My Halve Maen build was already on hold, but during our move to a new house in November 2015, she got lost because one of our friends put her box on the pavement instead of in our car. After that the enthusiasm to build was completely gone. I spent last year enjoying my other hobbies. But, as a Dutch saying goes: 'Blood is thicker than water' and the urge to build another ship came back. So, May I present to you the Spanish Galleon Nuestra Señora del Pilar De Zaragoza (Our lady of the pillar of Zaragoza), a Spanish Treasure Galleon.

  19. Hello MSW, I started building the Friesland one year ago, and maintained a build log at Dutch forum www.modelbouwforum.nl Because I relied heavily on the build log by GreatGalleons, I decided to post my progress here as well. I hope it is fun for you to read. Mind I am new to the hobby, so expect a lot of (beginner) mistakes and troubles Let me begin to recap what has been done so far. Building plank: Keel and Bulwarks, dryfit Note if you also want to build this Mamoli kit: The keel does not match the drawings/plans at all. Either make a new one from scratch or a
  20. Hello! This is my first ever build log. This ship is a non-historical ship based on historical designs and is an imagination of my mind and I will try to bring it to reality as a model. I first start off with the concept art of the "Majesty" and here it is. (P.S. I will make the frames, the plans and whatsoever after I am clear with things
  21. Hi everyone! I have an interest in King Karl IX, Gustav II Adolfs father. Before reaching the crown he was a duke and was successful in developing his duches and he created his own fleet. And when he later went to war with Sigismund his fleet became an important part. When he later became king his fleet became part of the swedish fleet. As many men of power at that time in history, Karls seems to have been quite cruel but he did manage to reach remarkable goals in his life and laid the base of what Gustav II Adolf managed to achieve later on. For a while I'v been wanting to make a
  22. So, I've been having a couple really small craft store bottles lying around the hobby area for quite some time not knowing what to do with them. The body of the bottles are roughly 25mm high and I bought the bottles on a whim because I found them adorable. A couple days ago I got an idea; why not make a ship in a bottle from one of them? I haven't gotten far on the build but I did manage to do a bunch before I realised I wanted to log it so there aren't many pictures on the prep work nor on the initial stages, but the hull is simply ice cream sticks held together by two
  23. Hello to my second wooden ship, i opted for the "San Martin 1580" by Occre. The ship My "Albatross 1840" was a modern sailing ship. In contrast, the "San Martin 1580" is a very archaic sailing vessel. It is an early form of a Galoene but also has similarity to the large carracks of former times. A short Galeon, very high side walls, only 2 square sails on the main mast and very high castles at the bow and stern are reminiscent of older ships. The bulbous shape is a nice contrast to modern ships. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Martin_(1580) The kit I bought the kit for 140, -
