  1. Click on the tags in the title above (shown in black) for an instant list of all the build logs for that kit subject.
  2. I have been working on this for about a month. I had to stay home with my better half due to her scheduled minor operation. So since i had nothing better to do apart from this, i cracked open a few cold ones, turned on my favorite stream and been cutting out, shaping and glueing this lovely little kit. Chosen for its lack of complicated rigging, only two cannons and easy lines of hull. I need a little practice before i jump back in to the deep end of my Victory build. And Santa leocadia, La belle poule, Lexington and tonne of the others that i have all around me. every square inch of my worksh
  3. Hi and welcome to my build log of the Liveship Vivacia. This model is not based on a real ship but comes from the fantasy novels by Robin Hobb. My ambition is to build the Bounty, but I feel that I need more experience before I start such a project, especially in the areas of square sail rigging, hull planking and general component building (- basically everything, haha). So I have decided to build the ship that first got me interested in sailing ships when I read the books nearly 20 years ago. The books are fantasy novels based on a pre-gunpowder medieval style er
  4. Hello A With the summer camping season upon us I've had very little time to work on any of my modeling projects, the Harriet Lane still sits on the bench and I've parked the Niagara as well. I had toyed with the idea of taking some material along but was always deterred by the hassle involved with moving a semi completed project, so the idleness continued, that is until recently! I was perusing MSW one day and came across Clare Hess's (Catopower) build log for the HMS Alert from Shipyard (link below)) a paper model...I've seen paper done before, primarily following Doris's
  5. Good Morning everyone.. I have decided to start this log after spending countless hours on here, reading and gleaning information. Enjoy coming to this site to see what is new, especially in the scratch build logs. However, to dip my toes in this great hobby, I've started out with the USS Constitution by ModelExpo. While, that is currently still under construction, and not nearly as I wanted it to be.. I have decided to give La Pinta a shot. I wanted to build this, as I'm currently serving overseas near the area where Christopher Columbus set sail those many years ago, and this place with
  6. This is my first real wooden ship model. I started with a Mini Mamoli Victory but that was a solid hull ship. I´m fairly happy with it so far. The hull/planking could have been done a lot better. I started in January this year. I should have been more careful planking the hull and done a better job of preparing the hull ( counting number of planks, better fairing and beveling and so on. Done a better scheme how thin I should have shaved the planks but in all I´m satisfied.
  7. Dear friends, after finishing of Revenge 1577 I decided to continue again with scratch build - not with another "war monster", but with two small ships, two of Columbus fleet, which returned back from the New World for the first time. I used free plans from MODELARSTWO OKRETOWE web page ( http://www.modelarstwookretowe.pl/index.php?p=44 ) for Nina ( there are downloadable plans for Santa Maria too ) and made projection for Pinta based on the same plan and pictures of model made from MO plan. I will also change sail plan on Nina - all of sails will be latin. I abs
  8. Hello everyone! I'm Felipe, from Brazil, and this is my first log here, and also my first wooden model! It is "La Pinta", one of the three ships assigned to Columbus expedition, made by a small brazilian manufacturer that suits our needs for good quality kits, as its really hard to find kits from famous brands here. I've bought it an year ago when I signed up for this forum, but college wouldn't give the spare time needed for this kit, so I've just been able to star working on it this month. The hull structure: Starting to work on the decks:
  9. Well, here she is...the Pinta by Heller. I am disappointed that the ship is so small. From now on, I am going to listen to you guys about what ships I should do. It does look like it is going to be easy to put together. It did not come with the thread to do the rigging, etc. Can someone please tell me what they use for rigging thread that I can find in a hobby store? Also, it only shows the colors with numbers on them. I have a 33, 98, 60, 103, and 63. Does anyone know what those are for colors? I did buy the book "How to Build Plastic Ships". It cost me $38.98 for a used one from Am
