  1. First wooden ship build. Started a few weeks back so going to post pics of where I've got to so far. I'm in the UK and bought the kit from an online merchant in Japan. Kit is awesome. Instructions are in Japanese but pictures are self explanatory in the most part. And I found a Japanese OCR app which helps me every now and then. I sailed on the Sir Winston Churchill and Malcolm Miller several times as part of the Sail Training Association (now Tall Ships Youth Trust), so this particular schooner holds a lot of memories. As for building the model. I'm making it up as I go a
  2. Got the kit from Japan. Unboxing it just confirmed Catopower* that made a review for this modell with very positive comments over the kit's quality. Matetial, instructions and drwings are of top quality! *I thank him for the excellent review but also for all the help he gave me so far.
  3. Hello All, I just wrote up an out-of-the-box review of the Sir Winston Churchill kit that Woody Joe revised and re-released last year. I posted the review on my blog, but though I'd go ahead and put it here too. I was originally going to write this for Seaways' Ships in Scale magazine, but I've already written three Woody Joe kit reviews for them, and I figured people might get tired of reading them in the magazine. So, I put it here. Of course, I don't get any money when I post articles online (and I could really use the extra income), but I was going to write it regar
  4. Well this is it. I have started Sir Winston after reading so many logs and build instructions, after buying the necessary tools and finding all the various web sites re wooden sailing ships. I spent the first few hours (and they went so quickly) on cutting out the bulk heads and sanding them. The next day I glued them in. I used an old paint brush and 'Titebond' wood glue. Worked very well too.I made a couple of small errors but fixed them up and all is ok. Yesterday I started the planking and am following the method suggested by Billings and by looking at the photos provided. It appears t
  5. I started this build a few years ago as a stress reliver and as a distraction from work. Too late, as I had a stroke about 6 months after I started the build... I choose to ignore what that might mean about the stress of building one of these things. This boat is a pretty simple compared to what I have seen on MSW. I have built an 18" canoe which proudly sitting on the mantle of my home so now I'm going one better, and bigger. I am writing this as a journal, and to help anyone else who may be building this kit. It is Billings and not very well done, as a whole. I think it is one of
