  1. My next model will be the Continental Sloop Providence. I became interested in this boat after reading, “Valour Fore & Aft”, by Hope Rider. Despite being a history of the boat, the book was a great, swashbuckling story. I recommend it. The boat was built by a Rhode Island merchant named John Brown several years before the American Revolution and was named the Katy. The sloop was converted to a privateer and commanded by three excellent captains, and during its voyages, achieved several ‘firsts’ for the Continental navy. The first captain was Abraham Wipple. Th
  2. Hi everyone, this is my first build log here on MSW, and 5th wooden ship model. With this kit I wanted to get a break from rigging HMS Terror I've been building for over a year now (build log pending, I'm not very good with keeping logs). I'm rather disappointed with this kit, and hopefully the build log will show why. The build process looks straightforward from the first glance at the instructions, but as I was progressing it was more and more obvious that there are lots of very unclear moments that instructions don't show. And what really baffles me - the
  3. Hi everyone. This is my first wooden model ship. I thought I would start with this kit, as it seems to be one suitable for beginners, and it looks beautiful in the photos (although I am not expecting my first work to look as good as that). I have never read Moby Dick, although that connection attracted me. It seems unbelievable that anybody would venture out in something so small to fight a whale. I guess they were made of strong stuff back in the day. My previous experience has been limited to relatively easy model Airfix and Revell plastic aircraft. Even then I tried to smash tho
  4. So I started on another kit but it proved to be a bit over my head so I have started with this kit. So far it has been straightforward. There seems to be enough plank work to get me ready for more advanced kits to come. I have NO experience and I’m building the kit On a limb 😬. I know I have plenty of advice and help from this forum and will be using it...a lot. Please lend all the Crits and advice you can give me. It will be a slow process as I’m sure most of these type kits are but so far it’s been very relaxing. Thanks for tuning in!
  5. Because I'm not an English speaker, I apologize for not explaining every pictures. I hope my build log help new comers. Bought it to get a rest. Good packaging, but... The keel twisted just after a week. I couldn't let it anymore. Don't open sealing before you are ready. It's sanding time. Time to battle with myself. Made some jig for exact vertical sanding. Very common technic. Found significant differences. Already banned from NAVSEA museum guideline. Fixed, b
  6. The Continental Sloop Providence 1775: Concept Well I suppose I have procrastinated long enough and it is time for me to actually start doing some building. I have not built a ship model in over twenty years and all of the models I have built before, not counting a lifetime of plastic ships dating from childhood, were RC ships and were pretty much made form plans I found in magazines and using materials scrounged from almost everywhere. One ship was made from fold out plans much like the centerfold in Playboy and the wood started out life as a dog house and was filled
  7. OK, I guess no one really knows just how this little raider appeared during the American revolution, but I assume some research was done before the building of a reproduction An architect by the name of Charles W. Wittholz designed the reproduction for the Seaport 76 foundation Newport RI.. This little vessel was the first command of John Paul Jones under the American flag and should have more recognition by kit designers and or modelers. I was fortunate to get a beat up plans from a former Skipper of the reproduction and will attempt to dope out just what the weathered plans a
  8. FINALLY...my build logs begins. I welcome those that followed my PHILADELPHIA builds as well as any new comers. Welcome to my build log for the Continental Sloop PROVIDENCE. This ship is famous for being the first naval command of John Paul Jones and the distinction for ALMOST being the first ship in the Continental Navy. GENESIS OF THE PROJECT The idea for this model began with, as most things of value, discussions about pirate ships. Our ship model club annually mans an information booth at the local County Fair. One of the questio
