  1. Hi ship bulders, this is my first wood model and I like to share my build log with you, so by your comments I can learn to build wood model ships better. From other posts I know, that Golden Star is not very realistic ship | brig, but I started to do it more by myself, so some details will be different from original. I hope, that this will do it more realistic and more detailed as is a kit model. Also I want to learn build wood ships and work with wood. As you can see on last picture, I haven't a big table for building, but it enough to me, because this is table made by me, so I feel better . I started to built a ship year ago, so I will post the steps up to now in short time.
  2. Hello and welcome to the build log of my first attempt on wooden ship modeling. I was asked by a few members of this forum to re-create the build log and I finally got to it so I hope it will be useful to some people building this kit. I will mostly upload only pictures, hopefully no words will be necessary. In case you would like to ask please feel free to do that. I have decided to bulid the Golden Star model that was suggested to me by a local seller of wooden ship kits. Before that I have tried to build a few plastic ship models but the wooden ships attracted me very much. Build of the kit took me around 10 months and I really enjoyed the work. So here finally are the pictures. Starting with the assembly and first layers of planking...
  3. Now that I have reconstructed my Bounty Jolly boat buildlog, I will redo my Golden Star log. I started building the Golden Star almost the same day I finished the jolly boat - getting hooked on this hobby It was rather a random choice to build this model - it was basically what the store had in my budget that I thought I could build. It is very much built as a learning process before I start on some of the ships I really want to build - the Bounty being one of them. Especially with regards to planking and the rigging - after the jolly boat the rigging on the Golden Star looks rather daunting - but thats equal to a good challenge And it certainly has been a learning process already - mainly with the planking (but then, at the time of writing, the planking is "all" I have done ). Please feel free to comment or ask questions. So time for some pictures:
  4. My first ever ship model. Since I'm new to this I'd love to hear suggestions, comments, all with the aim to make next project more successful. P.S. I hope it looks like a ship
  5. The model is constructed completely of kit details without any alterations, sails are also used from a kit – the first and last time, on the subsequent models from kits I unambiguously replaced them. Certain difficulties were at production of an unary planking of the hull by nut levels 1,5 mm thick– inserts from balsa helped, the geometry of the hull managed to be sustained. Other problems in the course of construction practically didn't arise unless there were no threads from a kit, it was necessary to buy in addition.
