  1. HM Bomb Vessel Granado - 3rd build My third build I am actually doing in slight parallell mode to my HMS Snake. Both vessels are similar in size and so far it has been quite easy to do something on the first model and then the same to the other. I hope I havent taken on too much since I am also rigging my HMS Victory from Corel. I think the Granado is a really beautiful model with nice lines and also a rather unique look with the huge bomb throwers in the center of the ship. This will be a great addition to my other builds. History Accordin
  2. Le coreur is done and we're starting a new project Our mortar ship La salamandre is temporarily unavailable for sale due to copyright issues, so we are ready to start a new mortar ship. I started to design this kit in 2013, but his ribs were too complex, so he was stranded later,After years of experience, we feel that we can continue now。 This is a model photo of the museum This is the final state of design in 2013
  3. Having just finished 5 years or so building Amati's Vangard, I have decided to do something quite different: the bomb vessel Granado. There are a number of good logs for Granado on this website and I don't know if I can add much to them, but you never know. Most of the materials in the kit seem to be of good quality, though I am working on the first planking now and have found the wood strip splintery and cross-grained. The gun carriages could be improved and consequently I have substituted Syren carriages which are excellent though rather fiddly to put together (photos in my
  4. Hi All, Well I’ve come across some interesting plans for a scratch built Bomb Vessel Granado Cross Section over on Model Ship Builders site. Now I’ve never been known to be impulsive, carry on more then one build at a time or unable to resist the urge to start another scratch build. Talk about going to the darkside! It’s so dark on this side I’m not sure I’ll ever see light again! The Bomb Vessel Cross Section has some interesting details both on and below the deck (i.e. mortar pit and shell room) The plans are based on "Anatomy of the Ship - Bomb
  5. Hello everyone, this is my forth kit build and my second build-log. I bought this kit on eBay for a very reasonable price some years ago because this model is one of some that forced me into the hobby and I hoped to develope enough skill someday to build it. So let’s give it a try. I wanted to build the Cheerful next but after building the Sherbourne and the AVS I got a little tired about modeling another single-masted ship. So returning to 1/64 scale - seems tiny in comparison to quarter-scale. The kit itself seems to be of good quality - except for the supplied walnut s
  6. I was looking for something a bit different for my next build, and most assuredly did not want to copper, having done so on my last three builds, so after much thought I have settled on the Caldercraft Granado. There are some nice builds of her going on her on MSW which have given me some great ideas and nice inspiration. The kit is very nice right out of the box, with decent looking wood, nice fittings and excellent plans and instructions. I have yet to decide how far I'm going to go with changes and alterations wood wise, but I have some time to decide on that. So...let's get start
  7. I have produced a video record of Caldercrafts HMS Granado comprising 47 individual films that run between 5 to 15 minutes. I hope you find them useful. This is the first. Once you tage follow ypu can access all the other videos. There are also a set of three videos on how to build the display case. The first is Finially there ar a few videos on Power tools
  8. Hi Guys Starting a Granado build and thought a Build Log would be fun ... and helpful ! I've only built Panart models up to now ( Royal Caroline , Armed launch and the Open Whaler ) So a Victory model is my first kit away from Panart . I know there's been an awful lot of Granado builds on this forum, and from Modellers with an awful lot more skill than me, but really it's to get ongoing advice from you Guys and it just 'might' be of help to somebody in the future. Look forward to hearing from you Chaps and please if there is anything on my log that doesn't seem right I would welcome Adv
  9. The Granado is my second wooden ship build. This follows the cutter Sherbourne which you can follow the link to in the MSW gallery. The Granado was chosen for a vessel offering more than a single mast but still able to be displayed in a reasonable space. Firstly a tribute to all the prior Granados on MSW's former incarnation - they proved immensely helpful and I owe a huge tribute to you all in helping to spot impending difficulties and work around them thanks to your efforts. After wantonly pillaging MSW for help with my first build it's time to add to the basket of knowledg
  10. First up, I have to state this is not a complete log. I started the Granado in 2005 in a Group Build whose name I have since forgot. Unfortunately the group build web site was hacked into oblivion and all files lost. I have recently found some of my old photos of my progress and thought I would share them. Notice that well into the build, late in 2006, I caught the “bashing” bug from Steve “Stu” Hall of Ontario and decided to cut out some of the stern bulkheads and detail the after cabins. See photos. Shortly after I started the build, my wife and I acquired a travel trailer and I
  11. I spent a good deal of time trying to decide what to do for my next project. The choices ranged through scratch builds and modified kits, cross sections and full ships, and even some thought about doing a plastic or resin warship. In the end, I quickly rejected the modern ships because I just don't think that at my age (76) with arthritic hands and diminishing eyesight, I could do justice to anything in those very small scales. A framed scratch build had strong appeal, but ,as I've explained in other logs, after doing the Triton cross section, I concluded that without power tools (
  12. First off let me say Hello to all the Lords of the Dark Side, your tolerance will be gratefully accepted. I would like to give plaudits to Jeff Hayes of Hobbymills for superb quality materials, the timber really is first class, also to Jeff Staudt for a fine set of drawings. A special thanks to Grant for all his hard work in working out the quantity of timber required and the different types, I just had to make some minor adjustments to the order. Below is a taster of the timber to be used. As you are probably aware this is a group project bui
  13. This will be my first full scratch build. I have chosen the Bomb Vessel Granado Cross Section as an introduction to scratch building as it has all of the components of a scratch build while offering something a little bit ‘unusual’ at the same time. This build is also a ‘group’ build as my very good friend Mobbsie in the UK has agreed to do this in tandem with me, and to make it a truly international build, we are also joined by Jack Panzeca from Texas. While we will all maintain individual build logs, we will progress at a common (slow) pace and will therefore be able to help each other thro
  14. Here comes the fun. I have been laying low for a couple of months due to some health problems. Yesterday was my first day back in the shipyard and today was the first with actual sawdust production. It is nice to be back. This build will be part of the group build of the Bomb Vessel Granado, 1742, Cross Sectional Model drawn by Jeff Staudt. The plans at 1:48 scale fit on 8.5x11 or A4 which is very convenient. I bound a couple of sets of drawings so that can spread them out wherever needed. I also scanned them so that I can print whatever I need on adhesive paper
  15. Well, here goes again - I WILL finish this one ! I've previously completed the Caldercraft Bounty (think the log got lost when the old incarnation of this forum died), but I also have two large (in fact, enormous) part-completed hulks (Agamemnon and R/C Resolve) that I'm forced to put on hold because I temporarily have less space available - at least until the pesky house sells. In the meantime, I've decided to get my teeth into something (a bit) smaller - hence Granado. First off, a huge gold star for Cornwall Model Boats (CMB) - I ordered the kit 9pm December 23rd, quite happy for it to
  16. This is my log of the Granado Cross Section scratch build using the plans from Jeff Staudt and Modelshipbuilder.com. The plans are awesome as has been attested to by everyone that has posted their builds on MSW and elsewhere I am undertaking this project as part of an impromptu group build that I horned my way into. I think it started as a combined effort by gjdale and Mobbsie, and then JackP joined in and then I invited myself into the mix. I have to say that I appreciate the efforts of Grant and Mobbsie and their efforts are making my build much smoother than it would have been w
  17. I started this model in late December (2012) after much research on this very same forum. I have reconstructed my early build log, as evident with this present mass upload of photos. At the present time, I have just finished the mortar housings and I am about to begin the upper gun deck construction. I am new to this hobby and have enjoyed every aspect of the build to date. There is always wonderful tips and help on this forum and I am excited to get any and all advice that comes my way.
  18. Hi, Been meaning to do this for ages Kit was a family birthday present and arrived late July minus the bulkheads but with 2 keels. a quick email exchange and a call or 2 to JoTiKa and they arrived in August. My first kit was HMS President by Sergal - I could not believe the difference in quality Here is the first of my pictures -playing hockey today so will post some more later today or on Sunday First planking done, gun port patterns and the wale. Bow with water line marked. The blue thing is a wine cooler that I use to soak my wood. Unfortunately I droppe
  19. This is my first build log, and only my second build. The first being the Mare Nostrum some 3 years ago. Any advice would be much appreciated. First a few photograph's of my hobby room at the back of the garage.
