Fellow MSW users, When I used to run a search on 'leon mckenzie' two items would be presented - Beekmann's and my own (McKenzie's) Scratch Build Logs. For some reason a few weeks ago something changed - It still says 2 items were found but only one, Beekmann;s, is shown - The screen shot of the search result is shown below. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks Doug
I'm just starting the Model Shipways brig Syren. I spent 3 weeks reading thru the Chuck Passaro practicum and feel ready to go. I pre-fitted bulkheads onto the former and immediately spotted a problem. When I line up the laser guidelines on the BF with those on the bulkheads, the "tee" intersection for the deck is not always on point. Sometimes, the bulkhead is higher, lower or dead-even with the deck line on the bulkhead former. So ... what is the proper way to compensate for these "misalignments"? Any advice would be appreciated.
Well, this is my very first wooden model ship, the Colonial Schooner Sultana, by Model Shipways. Not that I needed to really elaborate, since everyone in the world has probably already built the kit, and everyone has seen one built lol. So this build may bore many of you lol. But I'm excited! Currently, I'm sanding the boat to match the fore and aft part of the template, and I'm about done with that. I'm also about to read that one guy's Practicum regarding the Sultana, as I can use all the help I can get. Since everyone is so very familiar with this kit, I intend to make this build log pretty light, so as to spare everyone the tedium. I'm sure I'll have questions, however, and I'll want to brag from time to time ...or come begging for help in shame lol. So: QUESTION #1: How important is it to sand the stern of the boat flat? Do I need to only focus on the center part fitting the template? Or would the whole stern need to match the angles, etc. from the template? The instructions make me think I'm basically just trying to get the basic fore and aft lines right, without worrying about the whole stern gallery area (or where it will be). QUESTION#2: Is using a dremel w a sanding attachment a good idea? Or is that too much? Anyway, looking forward to this build! Hopefully you guys will enjoy some of my build, even if it is repetitive. Maybe it will make you all nostalgic for when you used to make such rookie mistakes! lol.
