  1. I bought the Harold Hahn book, “The Colonial Schooner” a while back. This is an excellent book. It has the plans for the Hannah and a couple other schooners. Harold Hahn built his models in an admiralty style. I’m not that good. I like to build plank on bulkhead. However, the book has hull lines and where there are hull lines, there can be bulkheads easily made. I have discovered that card works beautifully for me. So I am starting with this: and turning it into this: The picture is from the US Navy’s History and Heri
  2. Hi All, It is time to start a new challenge for me in this hobby. I have been looking for a scratch build model for a while now. One of our club members gave me the plans for the Rattlesnake using the Hahn Harold method. After looking at the plans and reading about this ship, I decided to jump into it. Here are the fully rigged model dimensions: Length: 37" Breadth: 12" Height: 24 5/8" Some history HMS Cormorant was probably launched in 1780 at Plymouth, Massachusetts. She was commissioned as the Massachusetts privateer Rattlesnake in 1781. Th
  3. This will be my build log for a scratch-built, 1:32 scale, plank-on-frame, admiralty style model of "Hannah", purportedly the first armed ship recruited into Washington's navy during the Revolutionary War. I've wanted to do a full hull scratch build at this larger scale, but what ship? The choice was not completely arbitrary. Even a 5th or 6th rate frigate in the Royal Navy would be 4-1/2 feet long at this scale, not including the bowsprit! Obviously I had to look elsewhere. I settled on Hannah because it is significantly smaller (this model will be 24" long with a 6" beam) and there w
  4. I started a new model with Navyboard technique. For this project I am using Harold Hahn's drawings and the model will be in 1:72 scale. I hope to be able to do something good!
  5. Why scratch? I always had a high requirements for a wood quality and fitting quality. Unfortunately, even expensive kits were never close to what I want. After getting a first pack of boxwood, I would never go back to any inferior wood (read - kit wood). And I am not ready to tolerate a bad quality in the kit. Hence, only scratch. Not that scary though, I do most of the parts from scratch anyway. It's a pity that kit producers do not offer a wood upgrade. For a serious build, cost is spreading over a number of years, so is it really so important? Speed of the build is not import
  6. After cleaning up the shipyard a bit, here goes.... New framing wood has been ordered but due to Jeff at Hobbymill's schedule it won't be here until late (very late) April. I'm planning on using up my existing stock of swiss pear, ebony, pear, silver maple, and cherry and maybe some boxwood if I see fit. At this stage, I'm poring over the plans and notating such things as wale, gunport, and deck clamp locations on the individual frame drawings as I'm planning on putting some reference points on the frames physically as I cut them. This should solve some of my previous issues..
  7. I have finally finished Hannah. My main purpose for building Hannah was to begin plank and frame modeling. That is one reason I didn’t include the rigging. The other reason is that I’m not crazy about rigging.The case was made out of old Mahogany that a friend had stored in his shop. I now plan to work on Halifax the second ship Harold Hahn discusses in his book The Colonial Schooner. I plan to include the rigging on Halifax.
  8. I have always wanted to make a plank on frame ship model. Hannah seems like a good place to start. I am using Hahn’s plans and his book The Colonial Schooner. I am using boxwood, ebony, and holly in the construction. I have just completed the beams an ledges. Holly decking comes next. I sort of hate to cover the under decking after all that work. It looks like fitting the decking to the stanchions is next. Any advice in doing that would be appreciated
  9. I had originally decided to build my Confederacy kit from Model Shipways before building the Raleigh, but once I opened the box and put the bulkhead former together I noticed that it was warped. Emailed Model Expo and have a new one on the way. Since that build is on hold and the fact that I want to build and not wait; I've decided to start my US Frigate Raleigh build from the Hahn plans that I have. The plans and timbering came from the Lumberyard. The ship will be in 1:96 scale. The timbering is cherry for the frames, keel and stem and holly for the decking. The timbering did come with
  10. As the planning starts, so does the log. With my admiralty hull finally back home after a month road trip around town I am more convinced than ever that a cross section is needed. With a variety of questions being consistently asked about the layout of the internals and how did this or that happen, the cross section would be perfect. Being a cross section it will fit on the mantle but also bring home the resultant size of the full ship with the full main mast being present. The first question is where to define the cut lines. After looking at the plans I
  11. Greetings (again). Returning to MSW after a bit of off time (eg I just completed my 5th sprint triathlon). I have not been idle and have lately been kicking it into high gear with my version of the HMS Druid. Believe it or not, started in 2003 (two kids and a couple of homes ago) but looking to finish in the first quarter, 2014. I have loved every minute I have spent - probably a little over 300 hours so far. I just finished with the bow assembly (sans the eking rail which will wait until the cathead is affixed). Previous to that was the stern caprail. I believe I am on the d
  12. About Me; I have been modeling for over 30 years. My other hobby is HO model railroading. At time when I had the space, I was into railroading, when I did not have the space, I built ships. This is my second non-kit built ship; actually the second iteration of this ship. The first attempt was not good; so I started over. This time is much better. I am disabled; I have no legs. The first was amputated several years ago and the second, a couple of weeks after the first. I tell you this, not for any other reason, other than to let you know I do things differently. Mostly a
  13. Starting my build log back up for the new site. This is the HMS Alfred timbering set from Lumberyard. The ship is the 74 gun HMS Alfred from 1778. Scale is 1/8". The framing is Swiss pear wood, and the build will also include some cherry, rosewood, apple, maple, South American boxwood and ebony for the details and planking as included with the set. The ship is being built upside down using the Harold Hahn method which isn't a bad way to do it, but I would never do again as it wastes way too much wood for my liking. My plan is to fully plank one side of the ship and leave the o
  14. Hello, Fresh start is sometimes a good thing, the new forum looks much nicer and already while attaching "new" pictures it's evident that usability is improved. Anyway, I'll try to recapture my log so far with five pictures of reaching the main stages, which I consider to be checking what's inside of timbering set (the fun part), completing framing, planking, deck support structures, carvings and current situation. I must warn that there's slow phase in my build at the moment -- plastic models (not ships!) are taking more time than wooden ones, and I intend
  15. Although I am not yet finished with my current build, I went ahead and decided to buy the plans from Chris Hahn (Harold Hahn’s son). The ship is the Pelican which was captured by the British from a French privateer when it was still the Frederick. Harold Hahn described the history in his book and also showed how he made this rather small ship model. I was intrigued by the fact that it is made with frame and plank construction (something I have not yet done) but yet is mostly planked, whereas most of his other models leave the bottoms open to show the frames and parts of the interior. This m
  16. This ship caught my attention the first time I saw the plans because it had a white flag. Laughed a bit until I researched it. But then the lines caught my eye. She's a 32 gun, frigate of the 8 pound gun class. A bit of history... built 1755 in Brest. Not too much in the way of history available except for some highlights: 1756 - Carried troops to Quebec. 1757 - with Marsaint's divsion on the 21 Oct. A "most bloody conflict" with the British off Santo Domingo. No ships lost on either side, but a high casualty count. 1762 - expeditions against British shipping and the Sale pirates. 1778 -
