  1. Greetings All, Where to begin...? I had intended to start posting my progress, but life got in the way. However I first must acknowledge all other building blogs for the Lynx - they did help steer me in the right direction. Shortly after I started, I had the bulkheads aligned with the keel; and had begun planking:
  2. Hello all! Here we go again! After finishing Le Renard, I have decided to start the build of Panart's kit of the Lynx. I really like the lines of this ship with it's huge rig and raked masts. I will be continuing my Bluenose build, but have found out that I like to have two (or more?) projects at different stages going at the same time. This will be my first model with double planking, so we'll see how that goes! So here is a few photos of the box and it's contents. The quality of the lasercuts look great, with no burn marks, and no warping.
  3. I started working on this model about a month ago. My dad and I FaceTime when we find a few hours to work on our respective models. I don’t have too many pics of it from the beginning and have finished the first planking. This is my second kit/build, my first being the AL Scottish maid. Mantua seems to not use as high of quality materials and I didn’t think that there could be any possibly worse instructions than AL, but here we are. I’ll be filling both sides in with wood filler today and sanding the hull down to start second planking this week.
  4. Initial dry fitting of bulkheads Bulkheads 7 & 8. The actual difference between these two bulkheads is smaller than the degree of (in)accuracy of the plans. In the following two images you will see the comparison between them
  5. Hi there folks Does any one know what kind of wood is best for the outer skin of planking if I want a slightly exaggerated (raised) surface grain. I intend painting my model (Lynx) black above the water but don't want it too smooth. The Lynx was hiding in the Chesapeake waterways when she was captured and I doubt she was done up like a show boat. Perhaps there might be ways of raising the grain a little after sanding??? Thanking you all in anticipation Don
  6. My first foray into these foreign waters, a Build Log by Basic. After much thought and research, I finally decided to jump head first into the hobby and buy my first kit. (Hoorah!) To begin my selection, I spent quite a good deal of time going over reference materials, posts on these forums and advice given by some of the more experienced members of MSW (Thanks ladies and gents, you know who you are!). I came to the conclusion that the single, most important factor in selecting that all important first kit is this: It MUST be a kit that you find personally interesting in some way, which
