Hi. Its time for a new project.. Been looking at this for sometime now. I have made several trips to Korea and visited the war Museum in Seoul. This was my first encounter of this ship. There is a kit of this ship made by www.youngmodeler.com at 1/64 scale There are also a few on E-Bay by the same manufacture. There are no drawing of this ship and there are a lot of replicas made but most of them are very different. Very confusing. There are a few referrals to the Turtle ship here on MSW. including a Kit build by Wim500. Also lots of nice photos by Grimber. I intend to Build this @ 1/32 scale so the model will be big enough to include a bit of detail. Rule 1... No paint.. Rule 2.. Follow as much as possible the method of ship building as used in Korea. Lots of HELP wanted here. The main timber I will be using will be English Cherry as I have a vast stock of it. Other timber will be used to give contrast and looks. Most of the Timber is very thick on this ship. And the hull planking is pined downwards into the plank below.(very long tree nails) Will post a link to the information later. I am at the stage of just starting the build planning. and laying the hull base (No keel on this ship). Will be Building this in the Shed as its the only space big enough for the model and me. That's it for now. Thanks for looking in. Regards Antony.
I could not really decide on a build that I had wanted to do yet, so I brought this old model out of the closet. It is a small yet interesting ship. The first picture is of the instructions and also shows a picture of the finished model. The other two pictures show that contents used in the construction of the boat. Sails are ready made and just require the addition of the battens. This should get me started again until I can decide on a bigger project (I need to visit my storage unit where I have a few model kits stashed). Instruction booklet. Packages 1 & 2 containing parts and the sails. Packages 3 & 4 containing small dowels and the stand.
