  1. Hello, Dear ship modelers! My name is Kudin Andrey. I was born and grew up in Ukraine, now I live in Israel. I am pleased to be among you, because I am building a model of a beautiful ship. Construction began here: MODELS WORLD Then I continued building here: ВЕРФЬ НА СТОЛЕ (Verf na stole) At some point, I had an interest in video building on YUTUB: LE FLEURON (YouTube) At the moment, the channel has a number of series from ...FILM 1... to ...FILM 71 Understanding that not everyone speaks Russian, I CORRECT the subtitl
  2. Hello, so here we are, this is my attempt to build this famous ship ! I always loved period ships, as far as I can remember, but it was a real shock when I got the Heller model kit at christmas when I was 14. The box itself was huge and very impressive, and the model was gorgeous. I still have this model in my workshop, I keep it as a relic ! Then I discovered the Tanneron model, the one which is displayed at the Paris naval museum, and as many I was fascinated by the beautiful carvings. In 2008 the desire to build model ships went back and my interest for the "SR" was still t
  3. Hello everyone, a few years ago, I finished my most beautiful ship - Sovereign of the Seas and I wished to find another similarly beautiful sailing ship which I would be able to build. There are plenty of glorious boats, but only for a few of them there are avalialbe good plans and exact information. I decided to create and build a card model of Royal Katherine from 1664. I do not have exact plans so I will proceed according to other plans of ships from 17th century - HMS Sussex and HMS Prince and use information from professional literature as well. I like great challenges and connection of
  4. As I said in my "new members introduction post" some time ago, I hesitated to start a second build log here, since I have an extensive build log on a Dutch forum. As this Dutch forum is basically/mainly an RC flying forum and over the last half-year/year the historical ship build sub-forum has gotten quieter by the day and most of the ship building persons that are still active there, are also active here on MSW. So now I have decided to also start a build log here on MSW. It might not be an day-to-day active log as on the Dutch forum but I will see how it evolves. The reason is
  5. Ahoy there! Since all the information has been lost, first I want to ask you if I shall post the project in progress till now (I am working now already for two years on it). I could post the photos as I have saved ithen and add some very short comments. ?? Dražen
  6. LA SANTISIMA TRINIDAD 1769 / 1805 Hola amigos: Para la realización de este proyecto se ha partido de copias o de planos de época de autenticidad indudable, y correspondientes a su estado en 1797 justo antes de la batalla de San Vicente. En esa batalla la Santísima Trinidad resulto muy dañado y no se conoce con certeza las obras que hicieron de reparación en la popa y en la proa. Los planos necesarios para el modelo que se esta realizando (escala 1 / 72) son obra de nuestro compañero Chimista, partiendo de los planos originales de 1797, y completados por dibujos de los alzado
  7. Hello dear friends , in summer 2012 I have started a scratch build of HMY Royal Caroline 1749 in a scale 1/40. The model is made of card (mainly) and other materials (modeling clay, wood, self-adhesive foils etc.). I will proceed according to plans from the book Anatomy of the ship, which are quite detailed and nicely designed. Other documents and information come from foreign literature, which describes construction, fitting and rigging of ships from this period. Because I want to build a realistic model of the RC as possible, I will be grateful for any comments and suggestions
  8. Sorry for my English "google traslator" A few years ago I wrote a book analyzing and explaining the construction system used in Spain from 1752 to 1768. It was called an English system because its origin was an operation of military espionage against England. For some time now my friend Jose Collado is building a model of 68 canons following the plans I have made strictly following the Spanish regulations of that time. I will be putting pictures of the process. Spanish construction syste
  9. Hello friends, my next project in the planning: The 74 GUN-SHIP " L E C E N T A U R E 1783 " after the plan drawwings of: Jean Boudriot, publishing company ANCRE, France. Timbering Plans of Jean C. Lemineur as well as numerous photos and pictures of the construction of his 74 GUN -SHIP Gaetan Bordeleau, Canada I here with once again warmly thanks. The construction of the rear section is planned as a cross section model with complete inside removal. Scale : 1 : 48
  10. History USS Pennsylvania was a four-decked 140-gun ship of the line of the United States Navy, named for the state of Pennsylvania. She was the largest sailing warship ever built for the Navy, and the equivalent of a first-rate of the British Royal Navy, but her only cruise was a single trip from Delaware Bay to Chesapeake Bay. She was just as large as the Spanish four-decked ship of the line Santisima Trinidad, built over 60 years earlier. Pennsylvania was one of the "nine ships to rate not less than 74 guns each" authorized by the US Congress on 29 April 1816. She was designed and
  11. Before anything, English is not my mother language so please be kind to my mistakes (there will be too many I'm afraid) and lack of nautical jargon. Well, this is my first build. You may think it's a pretty bold move for a beginner to model such an intricate ship as the Royal Louis but I fell in love at first sight with the model at the Musée National de la Marine in Paris a couple years ago. At the time, I had no interest whatsoever in ship modeling, which is a pity, and missed the opportunity of taking hundreds of pictures at the museum. Either way, that's the one...
  12. Bought my Victory just before Christmas from the proceeds of a house sale. Did a lot of work a few photos but lost them when Hard Drive went down (I was a computer progammer before retiring always took backups just didnt do i often enough) So unless i can recover then will start from where I am now Have finished first planking and the lowerpart of the second planking. On the two models I have previously completed I planked the hull with scale 5" Planks and on both used tree nails No decent pictures of my Panart Victory from 35 years ago (Valued at £5000 by National Maritime Museum).
  13. Hi everyone, been building a 1/72 scratch Victory for quite a while now. keep going off the boil and back again (is this normal) and at the mo I`m building or trying. I picked the Victory at 1/72 simply for the fact that jokita do a fine example at that scale thus giving me a wealth of top notch parts to add to my scratch, cannons, photo etch, e.t.c. It will be made as simply as possible with no fancy interior although i am toying with the idea of full cannons on all decks but we will see
  14. hello to all. this is my build log of the royal Louis. I had the frames laser cut out and scaled to 1/72 scale from the plans of 1/90. a company in pennsylvania did the work from plans I sent him. I have started to build her and am working on the1st planking of the hull. the frames and the decks are in place. the deck planking is maple with a cote of clear on them. so far no problems with anything. made my own holders for the false guns. cutting out the gun ports using a scroll saw blade. will post pictures hopefully this weekend if I can figure it out. terry
  15. Plan sheets arrived today - Carta Augusto (Italian Mfg.).... Appear to be very old, maybe 25 or 30 years or more. My friend tells me he has had them forever and doesn't even remember where he got them from. He came across them while looking for something to donate for the April Show in Fayetteville. Actually, after spending hours going over several really fine build logs posted within MSW, except for the patterns for her keel and frames, I'm not too sure there will be much of these plans I will be using in my build. The drawings of all the ornamentation
  16. Hello everyone I have built ship models since I was 14 years and then it was kits, after my children grown up I started to scratch build The 7 Provincien I started building my model in 2000 in a workshop I had in my garage, but since 2005, work have been down because I divorced and moved abroad. but now when I come back to Sweden I start to build again
  17. HMS Royal William in 1719 Historical Background The HMS Royal William in 1719 was the second ship of that name. The first HMS ROYAL WILLIAM was built in 1692 out of the 1670 HMS PRINCE forth. Rebuilt in this the extent of HMS PRINCE were retained, only the appearance has been significantly modernized. It was in honor of King William III. renamed HMS PRINCE in HMS ROYAL WILLIAM. The HMS ROYAL WILLIAM in 1692 was subjected to this Rebuilt in Chatham by shipwright Robert Lee. William III. reigned from 1689 to 1702. He comes from the house of Oranien Nassau.
  18. I started to build the Santisima in 2002 using the plans from the spanish web site. Here are some photos of the start of the build
  19. Starting my build log back up for the new site. This is the HMS Alfred timbering set from Lumberyard. The ship is the 74 gun HMS Alfred from 1778. Scale is 1/8". The framing is Swiss pear wood, and the build will also include some cherry, rosewood, apple, maple, South American boxwood and ebony for the details and planking as included with the set. The ship is being built upside down using the Harold Hahn method which isn't a bad way to do it, but I would never do again as it wastes way too much wood for my liking. My plan is to fully plank one side of the ship and leave the o
  20. I think I was amember of this forum a long time ago? does anyone remember my ship model of the Uss Pennsylvania of 1837? My Name is Greg I am 56 years old and the ship is about 90% finished now.
  21. Hello: My name is Luis and I live in Mexico City. I have always admired the ships from the napoleonic era. I have built scale models for quite a few years now, both scratch and from kits, but this is the first time I post a building log. This ship is the spaniard 80 gunner "Neptuno". Built in 1795 in El Ferrol shipyards, in Spain, she fought at Trafalgar under Captain Cayetano Valdez's command. Taken by the British after a four hour combat, she was recaptured by the Spanish crew but was beached and lost during the storm that followed the battle. The model will be
  22. From the album: HMS Bellerophon 1/150

    HMS Bellerophon. I built her following the blueprints of a traditional English frigate of the XVIII century. This model is a generic frigate, and has no relation with the real, second rater ship of the line HMS Bellerophon, which carried Napoleon to Saint Helena island. Hull is made of styrene, built with a plank on bulkhead technique. Cannons are brass and masts are balsa wood. The figures are taken from a train maquette kit and painted to fit the uniforms of the time. Sadly, no building log for this one.
