  1. I noticed this model in a local outlet store for about 40 usd and had a 15% coupon thought might as well try a plastic ship
  2. Part 01 This is a build of the Skipjack Carrie Price using the Pyro Chesapeake Skipjack Oyster Boat model kit. After some research I found out that the Lindberg/Pyro kit is a model of the Carrie Price as recorded by Howard Chapelle. After I started the kit I found the name cast on the transom, but had not noticed it before I started my research. The Carrie Price is one of the projects in “American Ship Models and How to Build Them” by V. R. Grimwood and Howard I. Chapelle. I am using the plans in this book to build and update this kit. I am planning to depict her as build around 1895. I’m
  3. I will start my first build log on this forum with the Nina from Lindberg's Ships of Columbus. I found this kit at hobby lobby on clearance for $8.
  4. Go ahead and laugh. I like pirate ships. After doing the Revell U.S.S. Constitution as my first ship, I decided to tone it down with a level 2 ship. I have to admit this one looks tough too. The pieces are so tiny. Oh well, I enjoy a challenge. I am excited to have my first build log.
  5. last Tuesday.......I was suffering from work lag. it was a nasty week.....way too many trailer brake jobs! I didn't have the urge to do anything with the wood projects. Wednesday came with not much change, and I knew I had to do something. ........something I could just throw together, without much fuss. since the Jolly rogers was a kit with many problems, I figured.....what the heck, if I have to hack it up, who cares not like I was going to do a log on it, or anything I would forego a lot of painting....no need to be fancy. a few folks here has built it and experienced
  6. After watching a program on Youtube about the disaster in 1934 where the White Star RMS Olympic cut in half and sank the Nantucket lightship, I started to look up the history of lightships. I then stumbled across someone's post of their model build of this same ship. I had never heard about these ships but I found the history and looks of them fascinating, and so I purchased this kit from Hobbylinc. On another site, I asked 'what year' did this kit represent? A gentleman by the name of Ron J, who is on the BOD for the Nantucket lightship, was kind enough to respond and said this was
  7. ...and music of the epoque to give some acustic idea of my mood for this project to you. Okay, that's me! I am building at the Revell Peter Pan JOLLY ROGER when The dream of a Louis XIV. commode crossed my way and I am attacked by the beauty of a single golden detail: the FAUNUS. s a mythological figure a horned god of the forest, plains and fields; when he made cattle fertile he was called Inuus (there the link to DE ROODE BUL). He came to be equated in literature with the Greek god Pan. So the idea is to develope a freelance sh
  8. This is my first build log. I am retired, living in Florida and here is a photo of my work space. I received the kit on Thursday, August 21, from Advantage Hobby in Champaign IL. The first thing I did was cut two 9’ lengths of the rigging thread to soak in water overnight. On Friday, August 22, I hung the rigging threads with weights at the bottom to stretch the thread. I separated each part and identified its number with a green Sharpie on the “back side” or on the adjacent tab so that they would be easier to identify. Most pieces were in fairly good condition. There was quit
  9. My plan is to make a generic model of a frigate, basically following the instructions, doing things a little different as far as paint colors go... The goal is to get a feel for building models of "tall ships" with all their rigging, to enjoy the process, and to hopefully end up with something that looks good with my other ship models... I'm pleased with how it looks so far, and I'm having fun, so I'd say I'm off to a good start. I have some resizing to do on my pictures, so it might be a while before I get them up... Edit: forgot to add - I'm already in the process of rigging this
  10. Greetings! Newbie here. After dabbling with a couple of Age of Sail models (one is still ongoing), I finally decided to do the Jolly Roger, by Lindberg (seemed a lot simpler than my Heller 74/ Le Superbe). This kit was also known as the frigate La Flore (originally) and also the Flying Dutchman. But now it’s the Jolly Roger because all square rigged vessels with cannon have to be pirate ships. Sigh… Anyway, it was/is my intention to use this kit to create a sort of generic 18th century Royal Navy frigate, but not any specific frigate from the Royal Navy of that era. Also, I am build
