  1. Hello there! Sorry for taking so long this building log. I worked on the ship during the spare time I have and there is my progress (and some comments for my problems and solutions. Here we go. Problem here: as you can see I glued wrongly one at the bow, since it wasn’t a big deal y fixed it with a bit a sanding, lets hope it didn’t come on a bigger mistake. Nevermind now, lets continue. You can’t appreciate from the picture, but there are three small mistakes of cutting too much, but I fixed somehow with spare bits of the wood a
  2. Hello everyone! As my screen name suggests, my name is André, and I am from sunny South Africa. Whilst thinking about a title for my introductory post, I stumbled upon an article which outlined the U.S Navy ranks. Applicably, I immediately identified with the lowest rank, Seaman Recruit, which is characterised as the following: Apprentice in training being the key take away as I seek to learn about this wonderful craft, and to draw upon the wealth of knowledge from users on this awesome site - as I am new to this hobby (discounting a few plastic aircraft
  3. Good day Gentlemen/women After much thought, research and deliberation(literally years of umming and aahing) I decided that I would bite the bullet and purchase a fairly challenging vessel to start my career in model ship building. I settled on the HMS Pegasus and I am extremely excited about getting started on it. I realise that any sane person would have started on something far more simple but my thinking is as follows... 1. I have prepared myself for what I expect to be a 2 year project. 2. The wealth of knowledge, willingness to help and attention to detail th
  4. Hello, My name is Samuel and I am a 20 year old college student from Texas. I was gifted a wooden kit of the HMS Bounty 1:110 (Constructo) a few years back and never got around to building it because I was scared of messing it all up. Now as I am a little older I started it as an "end of summer project" and I think I am about 3 weeks in and the ship looks good so far. There is still a lot of work to do, and I know I will not be able to complete it before I head back to school in the fall. From reading a few posts here as well as various sources online I have come to
  5. Hello everyone, I am new to this forum and new to ship building. I have been working with wood for years building mostly shaker/mission style furniture. Almost a year ago I lost my nice wood shop (in a divorce) so I had to downscale A LOT. I missed working with wood and building things so I went on the internet looked at various small scale projects and decided I would give wood ship models a try. I was always fascinated with tugboats and steamboats so it felt like a match made in heaven for me. Thus far I have been doing a lot of research regarding my first build. As I said I do have s
  6. It is time to pressure that little dream I have had since my high school years….to build Wooden Ships! After 22 years in the Air Force, marriage and then the transitioning back into civilian life one of my goal was to return to model building. I started backing into plastic kits since that was what I had built mostly in my early years. I focused on Armor and some Aircraft here and there but always in the back of my mind was that little dream of wooden ships….and then in August (2017) my wife and I took trip to Boston. As most of you have undoubtedly guessed we paid a visit to th
  7. Over the past few years I have completed 10 or 12 models, most from scratch. I'm including these photos for your inspection and to introduce myself - Dick Lawrence
  8. Hey all, I was about to plank this side in. The other side is completely done. I won't be ordering my bow thruster until the end of this month. If I complete the planking here, the only access to the cuddy (inner nose of the bow) will be through the top. The top would be open as I only have the decks pinned down. My intention is to prep and cut 20mm holes but order a 30mm thruster. Can all this be done if I close this planking off? I've also attached a photo. Regardless of the planking stuff, which of the 3 compartments does the thruster typically get installed?
  9. Hello everyone, I come from Newfoundland Labrador, Canada which is surrounded by water. Unfortunately, living in the western region of Canada I'm in, Lloydminster, Alberta, Canada, (the vast prairies), water is very scarce. Ironically, my new passion for model watercraft will move ahead regardless. I have no interest in speed boat style vessels, but rather, the larger tug boats, fishing boats and eventually, tall ships. Ive done a lot of research, and it makes more sejse to reach for the mountain before the sky. So for my first build, I've chosen the Smit Rotterdam, by
  10. Hi. I'm just waiting for the arrival of my first model in 35 years. And I know this is a big leap from way back then. So I'm also doing an airfix H.M.S. Catty Sark in between. Hopefully to retain what's left of my insanity. The reason I'm starting this thread is, I suppose obvious in a way. Help advice and tips. But the real reason is decades ago I was young and able to conquer the world. As we all were. Now I'm in a slow slide of disability. And I suppose you could call this my Swan Song. Go out with a bang eh. At least I'll have a boat waiting at the end :-). But in the meanti
