  1. Hello, This Build log is being copied from another forum it was actually started three weeks ago. I am actually a little embarrassed to even put this here after reviewing all of the beautiful workmanship on this site. But we all have to start somewhere even at 60 yrs old. So here goes. This will be a log of my first complete build of a wooden boat kit. Like many people I have made many attempts over the years to build one of these to completion only to get half way through and run out of patience or just have life get in the way. Now that I am sixty years old I seem to
  2. Starting with the instructions. Gave them a good read through. Had trouble with seperating the keel from the sprue and, snap. Elmers to the rescue. Letting that cure before forging ahead. This is my first wooden ship model. I'm no stranger to modeling, or miniature painting so i hope my skills at figure painting will do me service here. I may or may not be verbose in my descriptions. This is less a how to and more of a document of what i did right and wrong. Suggestions are welcome, naturally.
  3. Started this build a while ago now and made slow progress while in class, finally have time to make a log and make more progress. I am building this kit as a gift to my gf, the John Alden Sloop was what I was originally going build, but it is far too big for where she wants to put it.

Here the fram
  4. This will be my first kit build log on MSW and my second wood boat build. The Sakonnet Daysailer, a 1937 club "one-design" boat, designed by John G. Alden. Joe
  5. My next project I'm starting tonight is a Midwest Products Sakonnet Daysailer. Here is a picture of the box art and what the boat should look like once completed.
  6. I saw another model Sakonnet being modeled on here after I picked up my kit and thought I would post a log as well. I picked this kit up for a very modest price of $10 at a swap meet and didn't even know if it was complete but the instruction were and I figured I could scratch build any missing parts. I'm new to ship modeling but have done quite a lot of planes and cars, mostly plastic. I figured I would tackle this with a small project before attempting a larger one. I've got my follow on projects already planned, a MS Rattlesnake vintage carved plug that was given to me for dirt cheap and
