  1. It has long baffled me How many of the great modelers make such superb work boats That service the sailing ships of old. I had made many attempts but always felt that the finial product fell short of the Main ship model. One day i came across A post that suggested that these magnificent miniature boats were made using a mold. I looked everywhere to find a paper or video to help me try but never found a complete process. So i decided to try to develop the process and recorded my work on video. The first one did not pop out of the mold but the second one did. The finial product was great if i
  2. Here I go with my first build log. I am hoping that this little $9 POF kit will help me get my feet wet with planking. I've had trouble deciphering the instruction sheet and have complained about the poor quality photos included. I sent a copy of the instructions to MSW member Mahuna and he got me started. I am creating this log on my iPad so I hope the photos are OK. Here we go...
  3. Hello everybody, this is a tiny build log that covers the assembly of the latest Master Korabel 1:72 lifeboat. I have never built this boat so, most likely, I'll make a few mistakes on the way but I hope those won't be fatal and I'll be able to fix them. The first thing I noticed is that Master Korabel used a new technique for this model - the jig is not a part of the model as it was with the previous MK boats. It is more like a "building berth", a completely separate entity. The kit itself consists of 2 pearwood billets and 1 plywood billet: All boat parts
  4. Hello everybody, This is an express build log for a 8-oared lifeboat made by Master Korabel. This is my second one, I have already built one of these for my St. Gabriel Model. The laser cut parts for these tiny boats are very delicate and fragile and I managed to break a couple of them. Fortunately these little mishaps didn't affect the result. Also, I deviated from the instructions a little bit and I think it made the assembly slightly easier. This tiny kit consists of a few veneer and plywood billets: First few steps, were straightforward and I simply follo
  5. Hi everyone, this model starts that I liked very much because of their nautical such ships ,sympathy and brave people who serve on them .

Well, get to work, after balancing the plans I noticed not fited ,but I just used plan forms .Scale will be 1/20 .
  6. Hi all I decided to give this one a go, it's actually a very nice kit and at 12.99 cheap. Here's the box instruction booklet and my start on it. I intend to put it on a base in a very rough sea.
  7. So much has developed with this little lifeboat in such a short time frame, I thought I would take a few moments and bring all of you special modeling friends at MSW up to date. What was intended to be a small local project, very quickly within less than a month, spread to major cities across North and South Carolina through their city Parks and Recreation Departments…. (Fayetteville, Raleigh, Charlotte, Charleston & North Charleston to name a few) All of these programs are being scheduled to launch in the mid-March time frame under the official name of Lifeboats for Warriors P
  8. Hi all! Decided to help out Sawdust Dave with his venture and am challenging the rest of the MSW scratch builders in the U.S. to help out too. I have put the Triton model aside while I do these five little boats. My recent progress over the weekend using materials on hand:
