  1. Unpacking the box and the process of building the model of the pinky schooner GLAD TIDINGS (1937) by the American kit manufacturer Model Shipways. Here I share my personal impressions of the kit and results.
  2. This will be my third kit. I hope I learned enough from the first two. 18th Century Longboat (1750-1760) - Jerry Sturdivant - Model - Shipways Scale 1:48 Sloup Sloup Coquillier (1912+) - Jerry Sturdivant - Corel Scale 125
  3. I selected this kit due to large scale, complex enough but not overwhelming, price and it's a fair looking boat. Started a few days ago with these two books and ordered the kit and an electric plank bender this morning. My biggest problem has always been a lack of patience. I have to 'get r done.'. We'll see how it goes. Where is that darn FedEx guy anyway?
  4. Just to start with, I have never built a wooden ship model. I use to build WWII model planes but that was way back in my early teen years. I had lots of fun with them so I thought why not at least attempt to see if I could do a wooden ship model. After reading several articles about what would be an appropriate model for a beginner, I settled on the Glad Tidings Pinky Schooner from Model Shipways. Because there have been a number of build logs done with this model, I thought this would be at least a model I might be able to complete. I spent the first six months just putting together the hull and its masts. That just about did me in. I didn't keep a daily/weekly build log .. I instead snap pictures all along the way. So this build log will be of those pictures. I hope some of these might come in handy for others out there trying to do their first model. Hopefully I'm using the right terminology for the different bits and pieces so that others can follow along and learn.
  5. After numerous small builds, I've started a larger build, Glad Tidings. When I first saw the Glad Tidings kit in the Model Expo catalog, I couldn't get past the paint scheme. But then I saw the video Jamie Peghiny posted of the launch of the pinky schooner Ardelle in MSW 1.0. I fell in love with the design of the Pinky and purchased the Glad Tidings kit. What is unusual for this build for me, is this is the first build where there are build logs on MSW I can refer to! These MSW build logs will provide invaluable information! While I'm not one to build per instructions, since there's so much to learn on this build, I'll stay close, but if I see something I like, I'll make some changes. (Expect changes, starting with the planking.......) Before cutting out the bulkheads, they were color coded. I nearly lost it when #18 ended up backwards. Then I realized this bulkhead was sideways on the sheet. I found out that CA glue doesn't like the ink in Sharpie markers. The top of green #11 is about 1/2mm low, so a thin strip will be added. #5 on the starboard side and #3 & #4 on the port side, each have a small bump that needs to be sanded out. And a few more photos
  6. Here we go with ship number 2. I am almost done with the Bounty Launch but wanted to set it aside for now to start something new. I had the Glad Tidings and the Armed Virginia Sloop on the shelf and decided to go with this one. I love the lines of this little schooner. I got it started with no trouble so far. Cutting the rabbit went pretty well. All the bulkheads are in place and the supports are going in. I should have the 2 halves together very soon and will start to plan the planking. I hope to learn as much from this build as I did the Bounty Launch. I will do my best to keep the log updated and take as many pictures as possible. Sometimes I get carried away and forget. I'm sure I will have plenty of questions. I sure wish I had the skill and nerve to jump into a bigger project but I want to take it slow and build my skills. I also need to learn to slow down and take my time. Thanks for stopping by. Please don't hesitate to point out anything that looks out of place or to ask questions about the kit or what I am doing. Al
  7. Started back in April. After cutting the Rabbet and tapering to the bearding line I used magnets and a square to align the bulkheads as I glued them to the keel.
