  1. Merchant ship Mayflower by Antony - Scale , 1600 as first built in Harwich UK. This is the Start of a Mayflower build. The main points are: - It has to be a Longitudinal section (from Bow to Stern) Must be large enough to give scale and details of the conditions aboard the Mayflower in the 1620’s. And be completed before the 400 Mayflower celebrations (16th September 2020). I have the plans from https://www.plimoth.com/products/mayflower-ii-model-ship-plans Thanks to Jaager here on MSW. https://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/18809-mayflower-2-plans/
  2. I am the proud owner of Toni's Introduction to Planking Kit #1 and, since I've got a little time off during the holidays, I decided to get started. I started by reading the instructions. (I've heard that enough times from Kurt to know to start there and it's mentioned in Toni's instructions. It's good advice and I found, even reading through them, I made at least one error early on.) I mounted the plans to a piece of foam board, as instructed. Then I laid out the keel, keelson, stem components, deadwood and sternpost on the sheet to understand how they all fit together.
  3. As a preliminary caveat to this log, please understand that the builder is a novice, and that numerous searches online for a faithful half-hull rendering of Old Ironsides have turned up few usable results. I deeply appreciate advice, and most of those who read this will probably be able to teach me something I don't know! This build log is for a half-hull rendering of the USS Constitution. I am using the AJ Fisher 1:96 plans, scaled down by 50%. The plans were purchased from the owner of the company, who gave me his permission to make a reduced copy for this purpose. I will be
  4. I ordered this kit as soon as it was released but I wanted to finish my Sharpie before diving in. Of course my father found a small boxcar kit that I was hoping to put together first, but since that kit was incomplete I plan on starting this half-hull in the meantime and learning how to plank (hopefully that will set me up well for my next full ship the Alert). So far all I have done is setup my build board: The instructions suggest using 1/4" foam board, I had a sheet of 1/8" so I cut it in half and glued it together (hopefully all my issues are this easily solved 🙂). I trimmed the
  5. I’d like to recreate the build log for a planked half model that I posted a few years ago on another forum (not a model forum). I’m rewriting some of the text, and copying and pasting some of the text from the previous post. Pardon me if it sometimes appears a little disjointed. I've long been fascinated with the Swampscott type dories of Boston's North Shore, and I have considered building one out at my boat club. Years ago, I drew up a portrait of the sail plan for the Beachcomber, an exceptional boat from William Chamberlain's shop in Marblehead. I'll get bogged down if I try to
  6. I'm joining the fun of this "learning exercise". Started: Using a foam core building board. Rabbet cut. (Without much thought I started cutting the rabbet on both sides of the keelson before I remembered that this was a half hull - oops)
  7. Planking a hull is still something of a mystery to me, as I am sure it may be for some of you. In the past I successfully planked two POB hulls with the help of very detailed practicums writen by outside sources. Despite that I in no way would I say I am proficient or even confident in my abilities. Thats why I am so excited about this build. It is designed specifically as a hands on kit that will teach you step by step how to plank any hull properly not just this kit specifically. It looks like it will be very educational as well as fun. It also makes a very nice looking finished ship
  8. This is my first scratch build log, and it will certainly not be up in the rarefied company of many of other members scratch build logs, but still may provide some interesting information, techniques, and entertainment. This project has its genesis in a passing remark made by an in-law. Some time ago, I scratch built a half hull model of the six masted schooner Wyoming based on drawings I obtained from the Maine Maritime Museum. I did so because I wanted to get an a better appreciation of just how big she was. I was happy with the results, but, at nearly five fee
  9. Searching for a good place to start this..and since I will be building wood half models of at least 8 clipper ships..this looks like the right place. I have several builder half models of several clipper ships..ie...the Lightning and the Cutty Sark. But my problem is, in all the clipper models I build they are all roughly the same size models..but do not represent the actual comparative size to each other. To keep the scale issue from being clouded as folks view my collection..and from misconceptions being formed that this ship was the same size as that ship; I am emba
  10. Here are the last of my maritime models and, in keeping with my different style of building, they're all half hulls. I like this format as it can be hung on a wall so I don't have to answer that awkward question from my wife ... "And where do you intend to put THAT". Well, it's an easier discussion! First up is a model of our own boat, an Alberg 37, which we've since sold. Ever since I took up scratch building I had intended to build this once I developed enough skills to reproduce it and, more importantly, all the metalwork. The hull is carved out of a block of Re
  11. Greetings, This will be the build log of the Schooner Atlantic (Half Hull). Some background history: The Atlantic was built in 1903 by Townsend and Downey shipyard, and designed by William Gardner, for Wilson Marshall. The three-masted schooner was skippered by Charlie Barr and it set the record for fastest transatlantic passage by a monohull in the 1905 Kaiser's Cup race. The record remained unbroken for nearly 100 years. Trans-Atlantic sailing record: In 1905, Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany proposed a race across
  12. Greetings, Along with building BlueJacket's 80' Elco PT Boat, I've decided to start on the Endeavour Half Hull by BlueJacket. She was the British Challenger in the 1934 America's Cup. The kit is as a 'Bread and Butter' build... Cheers, Tim
