  1. After building my first kit, the HM Cutter Mermaid, I decided to go with another of the Australian Colonial series of models from Modellers Shipyard with the Schooner Port Jackson 1803. Kit Contents Check Laser Cut Sheets This time I sorted and labelled all the parts at the start to make it easier to find the bit I need as I built. The Card Parts Organized Drawers Labelled with Parts
  2. Hey all. After the untimely loss of all the data on this site I'm going back and re-doing my build log from the start. This is my first model, the HM Cutter Mermaid 1817. Its part of Modellers Shipyards' Australian Colonial Series of ships. I'll try and remember all the little hiccups I encountered throughout the build as to help others who get this kit make it without the same issues I encountered. I'll work on getting back to where I am on this build tonight on here (luckily I still have all the pictures on my computers) Cheers all Jason Tarr
  3. Hi all, With a little trepidation I'm opening a build log on my HM Cutter Mermaid kit. This is a first build, not counting the hull of an A.L. Swift model I managed to build when I was 13 or so with hardly any tools, expertise, or instructions. I was pretty impressed with myself at the time, but I'm sure it looked appalling. I used to build plastic models back then (planes and ships mostly), and had a couple of model railroads. I've had some fun doing "real sized" projects on my house (furniture finishing, trim carpentry, window restoration) but we'll see if I have any skills that
  4. After a short break from the shipyard I have decided to start my next project which is another Modellers Shipyard kit of the Brig Perseverance. The Brig was built for Robert Campbell a Sydney merchant a few short years after the colony of New South Wales was established. She mainly sailed off the coast of south east Australia and southern New Zealand in search of seals for their fur and oil. The Captain of the Perseverance discovered Campbell Island (named after his employer) as well as Macquarie Island (after the then Governor of the Colony of New South Wales). As I have an interest in early
  5. Hello All, Welcome to my build log of the HMS Supply. As far as I can tell after searching through this forum this is the only build log of this ship by this manufacturer. Although I think this will build up to a nice model straight out of the box I will be making a few modifications to enhance the kit. A brief history of the ship. The keel of the Supply was laid down 261 years ago on the 1st of May 1759, she was designed by shipwright Thomas Slade as a yard craft for the distribution of naval supplies. Construction was contracted to Henry Bird of Rotherhithe, a Borough of Sout
  6. Scare Bleu, yes i know starting another one. As stated I my Endeavour log I am very time poor at the moment, but I need to do something. Something, I can just sit down and model with, and not spend time sorting out what and how to do. A couple of pics it will be done as the kit is, except after looking around it appears, a binnacle needs to be added. Cheers Chris
  7. Hello every-one I'm nearly halfway through my build of the Colonial Brig Perseverance but i thought i would try to put up a rough log up to where i am now . This is a slow build as i have been building it now for close to 2 and a half years . I chose this model because i really liked the look of it and not being very experienced thought i shouldn't have to jump to many hurdles . The kit contents .Not to much to add here . The normal cast parts and laser cut ply pieces . The kit normally comes with mahogany for the second planking but i was able to get the mohogany
  8. Hi all, Thanks to the generous help of MSW member "lister" (Dave) who had saved my entire Build Log of the Norfolk Sloop before the Great Crash of February 2013 I've been able to reconstruct this build log. I haven't included all the comments from the members who were following it, and for that I apologise - that would have been impossible as the posts can only be made by those members. I thank all those who followed my build at the time. I have included a few pertinent quotes that changed the course of how I built the model. My thanks go out especially to J
  9. Hope i am doing all this correct, it is my first build log. First time i worked on a wooden ship sites like this did not exist. This will not be a fast build, my wife will be having back surgery and the grandkids have just moved closer, so please bear with me. I do plan on getting the grandkids a model for them to work on as well, fingers crossed on that one. I have just finished with the dry fit and have now glued bulkhead frames to the keel. Hope you guys like what you see as I move along. I am very much looking forward to seeing my progress as well. Doug
  10. I've finally decided to start on my model after doing some research on this website as well as on other sites. As is custom attached are a couple of photos of the package I got from modellers shipyard which appear to be in good condition and all there. I also bought the "How To Build" dvd and have watched it to get an idea of what I can expect over the coming months of the build. One question I do have already is what do other builders do to "blacken" or "age" the brass fittings that come with the kit (ring bolts etc). Is is better to paint them (if so, any suggestions on what paint to use) or
  11. Hi everyone. Before rushing into buying my kit i first wanted to setup a really good work space, so i built/renovated one.. Kit arrived yesterday - 17 Oct 2013 And did some scratch building of smalll items to get back into fine timber work... I made a shipping crate out of some old timber that has been sitting for many years from dads instrument building years.. (western red cedar) I believe. I found these series of 8 collectors plates and 5000 were made, based of paintings done by an Australian Maratime artist, Dennis Adams (1914 - 2001) He studied at the Royal Acadamy in London. I g
  12. A recent search on how to 'tie' rigging on model ships brought me to Model Ship World and the wealth of knowledge of its members. The information posted on this web site, along with other sources on the Internet has enabled me to finish my first model ship. So to all of you, 'thanks!!' One thing I did notice was no mention of the ship I built, and only a brief mention of the manufacturer, the Mary Byrne, manufactured by Modellers Shipyard in Australia. So I thought over the next few days (whilst watching the cricket!) I would recount in a build log my experiences with this model.
  13. So the order has been placed and I begin the anxious await for the postie to deliver my first kit and 'how to build' DVD.
  14. Hi, this is my first build log. I decided to get into the ship modelling hobby, so I bought the Modellers Shipyard started kit, that includes the HM Cutter Mermaid, a set of basic tools, and a beginners guide to ship modelling in e-book and DVD. On the picture you can see the unboxed model kit and the tool set. I took a step further and decided to add later the sails to the model, so I also bought sail cloth, the sail plans, and an instructional DVD on the topic.
  15. Hello Everyone, I have finally got around to start to reconstruct the build log for the Norfolk I had on the old site. I have done a search on this site and found that there are no current or completed build logs for the model on this site, that is if I have done the search right . I will endeavour to make this log as comprehensive as possible and hope it asssits anyone wishing to or currently building this model. I also wish to declare that a lot of the techniques and ideas I used were taken from an excellent and very instructive build log of this model, on the old site, by Dan V
  16. This is my second attempt at a wooden model ship after failing miserably several years ago - basically as I had no idea what I was doing and the kit I attempted had very poor instructions. I chose the Colonial Brig Perseverance for two reasons: According to the guys at Modellers Shipyard, it's not too complex and ideal for a beginner, and It comes with a 3 DVD set showing a "master model maker" construction the model from start to finish. This really appealed to me as at the time I began, I had not discovered Model Ship World and really needed some guidance. Here is the DVD cover and a
