  1. Just in from eBay, just snagged this kit NIB for $59.00. I have been chomping at the bit for something like this since I started seeing these kind of builds on MSW. Been working on the Charles W Morgan for a while now. This is a perfect follow up to that build. Can’t wait to get started so I have set up both the CWM and the Whaleboat on the bench for multitasking, keeps things interesting. Actually, the detail of this kit will help with finishing touches on the CWM. Very impressed with this kit. It’s my first build of the larger scale 1/16th. I have been wor
  2. The project was started just after Christmas with becoming familiar with all of the included wood and support pieces. The laser cut planking is excellent and actually feels a little more hard than the strip cut wood. Also, it seems to hold a better egde. The BOM states "Basswood or Limewood(European Basswood)" so I'm wondering if that explains the difference. One of the laser cut parts, the profile mold, did not match the plan around all of the the perimeter ( sheet 1A) but was satisfactory in the critical areas. (Edit:) Also, the horse support notches as well as the hull mold not
  3. First build of a wooden model. Inspired by a visit to the New Bedford Whaling museum and the USS Constitution museum. Started Dec 2020, finished Feb 2021. used a electric plank bender which was extremely helpful and fast (did not soak planks overnight, just wetted) used regular wood filler to fill gaps, worked great came of the formers without too much trouble despite being glued on in some parts. Best to use saw to remove from base if needed and then remove remaining pieces. Used a paper template with the required distances marked, which could
  4. This is my second build log on this site and it is my first POF. There are excellent build logs for the New Bedford Whaleboat here (Carlmb, Mike-In-Ri, Rbohlman, Senior-Old-Salt, Soup591, Ziled68) and elsewhere (https://www.charleswmorganmodel.com/whaleboat-build-log-by-john-fleming.html). As a result of this, I will post progress pictures and make only brief comments where necessary to point out peculiarities found during my build. First the kit: Marked waterlines on profile mold. Fitted section molds. Cut notch in cap strip. Fitted with cap strip. Glued cap strips and section molds to
  5. I started this boat last Fall before I was a member here so I’m actually somewhere in the neighborhood of 80% finished. It's my first nautical build so what might appear to be lightning fast construction is really just a lot of catching up on already completed steps. When I get to the stuff I’m doing now you’ll notice a rather dramatic slow-down! My photos of the early stages of the build are hit and miss and the quality leaves a lot to be desired. It's casual documentation at best. Fortunately, lots of good logs for this boat are already available on this forum so all the nitty-gritty of act
  6. So here we go to build this interesting whaleboat. Despite its large scale, it is a small model. Here's the box top And the overview of the contents:
  7. Back on February 1st of this year, I purchased the Model Shipways New Bedford Whaleboat kit from Model Expo. I have been a modeler on and off through out my life in plastic and card stock models, and now that I am retired I wanted to give a wooden model a try. I have been working a little each day on the whaleboat and I believe I have made good progress. I am at the stage now where the basic whaleboat is together and do have a few question, so I will start posting some of my build photos and hope you all enjoy my beginners efforts!
  8. Starting small but already things have gone a bit off. This is my first wooden boat and just learning the jargon has been one of the hardest parts. I’ve read Ansel’s whaleboat book and I’m looking up words like when I was struggling mightily Russian class back in college; clumsy cleat? thwart? Here goes nothin.
  9. Happy Sunday all. It's been quite some time since I've posted and my previous build never took off. I figured it was time to start a new kit that was simpler than the last. I decided on the Whaleboat since it's a smaller kit without the higher parts count, and it seemed to be easier than the Occre kit I tried last year. I have been working on this over the last two weeks, so here are some photos of my progress thus far. I started setting up the jig, beveling the stem and sternpost, and gluing them to the keelson.
  10. I started this model about three weeks ago. So far not many problems as the book provided with the kit was very helpful. I'm ready to paint and have applied a sanding sealer. I'd like to know if acrylics are OK to use for the model. Here is what it looks like so far: Thanks for any info. S.os
  11. Hello all, ..... recently signed up, and the first post from me, so I guess this constitutes an introduction, as well as my first post, come build log. So then - Andi Little, and little Andi by nature. long time modeller but a first proper attempt at a wooden model. I've been a fan of small open boats since childhood, dinghies dories tenders jolly boats pinnaces etc - et al. I've been trying to find out ways of building open boats for years, and generally amusing myself just solving the problems mentally. But for some reason, it seems to have loomed larger in my mind and I've
  12. Greetings to all, Please excuse the fact that I have been away from the ship yards for a while. It’s been pretty busy over here with the move and having to fix a leak under the sink that I could not find until after I broke under the concrete slab. Well as most of you know, I had the New Bedford Whaleboat kit a friend of mine gave me for the assistance I provided him on the back porch of his house. For starters let me give you a brief history lesson of the New Bedford Whaleboat. “From 1720 to 1920, nearly 60,000 whaleboats were consumed by the American whaling industry. With a useful life o
  13. Good evening, I am a little bit into my first build and will post as I go. This is my first wooden ship but I do have some RC plane experience. I had a minor stroke so I have given up RC and attempting model ship building. I have already purchased a Niagara kit as well but I figured this would be a good beginning. This site is terrific and I appreciate all the excellent builds.
