  1. Unboxing day: For my second kit model, I chose the Revenue Cutter by Bluejacket Shipcrafters. Was really happy with the Spray model I chose prior, so I wanted to follow it up with something slightly more complex rigging-wise. No building today, just taking in the kit: Excited about this one!
  2. Hello Folks, I am excited to begin my second build log and Blue Jacket kit on MSW. My first log was the "Yankee Hero" by Blue Jacket and I had a great time with the kit and posting the build. I enjoyed hearing from all the kind and supporting people in MSW. The Revenue Cutter represents what I believe is a reasonable progression from the Yankee Hero. The challenge I anticipate with this build is that I intend and (attempt) to complete this kit utilizing copper plates versus painting copper below the waterline. I was inspired to try this after I saw the Revenue Cutter build log by sjanicki
  3. Hey there fellow builders! So I finally had a chance to start cataloging all the work I have been doing on my revenue cutters alongside Sultana. Sultana is proceeding slowly but surely as will soon be updated, however as some of you may know at the last ship model convention in Connecticut I won a kit of Bluejacket's 31 ton revenue cutter. From the moment I got it I couldn't help but start tinkering with it. The reason why I put this in the scratch section is because I plan on building all my ship models (at least for the moment) in 1/64th scale since I like to be able to make size comparisons
  4. I started this build almost 30 years ago. After completing the hull and deck fittings it was packed away (in newspaper dated 1986). I moved from to the US from the UK in 91 and brought it with me. Needing something to do to relax, I decided to restart the build and try my hand at masts and rigging. We'll see how relaxing tying small knots turns out to be! Progress so far: Basic inventory - except for rigging line, everything seems to be there. Damage - one pump handle is broken. Tools - purchased a few obvious hand tools; tweezers, rigging toolset, new x-acto blades, built a smal
  5. For my third wooded model ship (after the Monitor and Virginia) I decided upon the Revenue Cutter by BlueJacket. I chose it for its entry level status but also because it will introduce me to more rigging. Anyways, on to the build log! The kit comes in a nice cardboard box with a color label showing the completed model. The kit includes a number of brass and cast fittings as well as laser cut wood and a machine carved hull. A nice touch is a display cradle is included as well. The laser cut deck is really well done. Exci
  6. Hello friends of the hullmodel scratchbuilding... Due to the fact I could build a hullmodel of the schooner here my collection of pictures - that will be elaborate during the next days. And the better detail of the bow part with a pencil to compare. The beauty will be 900 m/m or nearly 35 1/2 inches long. and Yours, Stan Edit: Adding the last two pictures showing the tremendous size of this hullmmodel and the cutting of the bowsprit.
  7. Greetings gang. I started this build with a video on YouTube. There are other build logs on this same cutter and I am happy to see them all. Here is part one of the build: Thanks for viewing. Music for the vid comes from the Colonial Seaport Museum. Sorry my video editing is not great!
  8. (Image via Model-Expo, from whom I bought the kit). This kit is meant to represent one of many ships built in the early nineteenth century for the US Revenue Marine (fore-runner of today’s Coast Guard). However, no “Ranger” was ever built for that service during this time period, so the model only approximates a real prototype. The closest real vessels, according to my research, seem to be the two Alabama-class topsail schooners built in 1819 (Alabama and Louisiana). This conclusion is based on several factors: Recommendation of the Coast Guard Modeling website Compar
  9. I believe this is an Alabama class Revenue Cutter circa 1819. Blue jacket was pretty vague on the origin. I was first concerned about the hull since it seemed to have very little room to shape. As I began working it, though, it is coming along nicely. The kit has well-drawn plans that accompany a nice instruction manual. I have never attempted a wooden ship model and have already emailed Nic at Blue jacket a couple of dumb questions. He has been great about responding and has sent photos for clarity.
  10. Hello friends. As I restarted my life in a new flat as a single in may of this year I restarted my hobby also - but my right eye got so bad during the last few month that I was forced to stop car driving. So I crashed the Ranger and got mad of being unable to built anything intelligent until today. I got a book at ebay and found the old Krick kit of the Alert! And I got mindsick and bought it spontaniously - due to the fact that 1/25 might be an intelligent way to outwit my eye. W'ht'n'heaven hav' I done? I first decided to bash the kit, and had to figure out that it wa
