  1. As soon as I figure out the new process, I'll try to rebuild my log. Seems like an eternity since I last worked on it....about the 20th of December, 2012. Been a lot of things going on but I hope to finish all the final touches by the end of March. We are selling our house and moving so it looks like another few weeks before I can do much other than rebuild the log. Got virtually all the pictures but none of the interesting comments and suggestions.....Oh well. This does provide a great opportunity to not include the ugly stuff....
  2. After some consideration and discussion with various MSW builders who have built river paddleboat models, I decided my next model would be the Robert E Lee by Amati. Detailed rigging is getting a bit fiddly for me in my later years and the RE Lee offers an interesting alternative. There is presently no building log on the MSW site of the RE Lee. There was one by Jim (aka Script) before the meltdown late 2012 and Jim has helpfully re-posted some progress shots. Since there is no complete log of the RE Lee on MSW I have decided to start one, mainly in the hope that it will assist any new
  3. After finishing the side wheeler Portland i decided to build a smaller model of the Robert E Lee by Amati. The kit is very detailed with great metal parts and good plans. There is a english and Italian plan set. The drawing are in Italian but you can cross reference from the english to Italian. The different decks are built as individual boxes. The bluejackect model had slab sides which made it rather difficult at times. This is my 8th wooden ship . I woould recommend this kit to anyone wishing to build a paddle wheelr.
  4. Hello all: gonna start my 1st build log so bear with me. Bought this kit back in 1990's when I first wanted to get into building models. (Hint not a good 1st model). So after switching to r/c airplane modeling for 20+ years I dug this out the other day and thought it's about time to finish this up. I found a build log on this model by Jarero and another couple of pics from Robhow on his build so I figured I could get some help and encouragement if I started one also. This is what I have so far; As you can see I put enough work into this to finish it up but I see that my white has yel
  5. I have procrastinated long enough on putting up this log so I have a little catching up to do. My wife got this model for me a birthday present while I was still finishing up my Swift build. I'm sure most of you know that this model company is no longer in business and that there is at least one other company (Amati) that currently makes a version of this same boat. I knew nothing of the history of this boat prior to this build so the first step was to learn about the history behind the Robert E Lee.... Just a few interesting points: Built in 1866. She was named aft
  6. A friend dug up a project that was starte quite some years ago and never finished and gave it to me The 1st inspection was about trying to see if there was any missing parts, seems a few wooden pieces are missing, all i've see so far can be replicated easily from the scraps i have arround. Some tears in the instructions along with some water damage, still everything is readable. 2nd inspection on what has been built already, news are not so great, this piece is wrong The main piece of the deck is not centered And the castle already made di
  7. Here we go again, my next project ! I decided to do another paddle steamer, this time a Constructo kit. First impressions, not impressed by the plywood parts. They don't use laser cutting which means you have to cut most of the parts with a knife. The plywood is very thin and quite badly warped but, being so thin I should be able to flatten it OK. Nice bundled wood for the model as I found with the Louise. Reasonable instruction book with photos and two 1/1 sheets showing side elevations and overhead deck diagrams. So, first thing as usual is to put frames on the false keel which will
