  1. Hi Lads I'm starting this build log of a conversion from the scientific Kit, the Dos Amigos, into another Baltimore Clipper, the Dapper Tom. I've got this kit from eBay and I also go the Model Shipways Kit in a much larger Scale from the same source. I like more cannons, and since the solid hull of the Scientific Kit is balsa wood, I'm going to make the conversion. I hope you enjoy this adventure.
  2. 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
  3. Hi Folks For ages I’ve been trying to justify not touching several Kits that I have, Till Last weekend where I decided to warm up hands with an old Scientific Kit. My father had it built back in the 60's in Pittsburgh, and I remember lots of craftsman shift in this kit, lots of dedication. This kit would be nothing compared to the masterpieces I´ve been following on this site, but I will try to honor this kit. The Kit Parts
  4. 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
  5. Hi, I purchased this model on ebay about 10 years ago and started the build in 2007. I worked on it regularly till work got too busy during the year. Now I want to finish it. There are a few broken pieces to fix and reattach, otherwise i is in great condition. It looks like I was working on the rigging when I left her in drydock. Cheers Mark from Tasmania
  6. Well let me start off by saying this is my first wood build. Ive done plastic models for many years though and im very excited to start a new journey! So agian its called The Sea Witch. The kit is made by Scientific. The kit its self was made in 1970 which is kinda cool since its almost 10 years older then i am. When i opened the box everything looks good. The solid hull needs sanded just a lil in a few spots but not to bad. The parts are not laser cut like most models ive seen but again it was made in 1970. My dremel will work great on this build. A few things bother. The sa
  7. I am still placing 'stuff' on the hull of the Santa Maria, however, when I have the granddaughter over I will not use glues and other sharp objects around her. So I decided to also start a solid hull version of the Cutty Sark by Scientific. I started one other model from this company a few months ago, but sat on a box of parts and sort of brought that project to an end. This is an old model, and that means no laser cut parts or other nice to have helps. I will do my best to make this a very detailed account of how grandfathers used to assemble their museum masterpieces.
  8. This is my first wooden model. My dad purchased the Scientific kit many years ago and never built it. I recently found it and have stared building it. It is a solid, mostly pre-carved hull. Not real fancy or super detailed. No scale given, but the overall length is 13 1/2 inches. I thought it would be a good first build kit. This has been quit the learning experience. The instructions are very basic and leave a lot to be desired. They even contradict themselves at times. (The directions state to trim the hull, then glue the deck to the hull. The image has a note to glue the deck first and
  9. Yesterday while I was in the garage looking for tools I came across a model I started back in 1988/9. I never got a chance to finish the model because I joined the Navy. I thought this had been lost over the years so was a nice surprise. I did not plan to start another build log until I was further along on the Ship's boat kit, but I need to soak some of the strips before I could continue. This gives me something to do while waiting on the other project. I had completed the work on the hull and was working on the deck fixtures when i left off. I believe I still have all of the parts.
