  1. While showing my grandson the Zebulon B. Vance progress I gave him my magnifiers and let him trim a PE stanchion. Since he's a first rate Lego constructor he did an admirable job of trimming, but finished with a question about whether anyone makes a kit with bigger pieces for beginners. I jumped onto Bluejacket's web page after he left and found the perfect answer, the Skiff wooden kit. Big, with not too many pieces to help ensure a timely and successful finish. When I revealed it to him he said a great idea would be for us to have a blog(!) to see if anyone is interested and to see where
  2. Here are some photos of my oyster skiff build. This is an easy project for a first time scratch builder. The entire build is in store bought basswood and the only tools are readily available hand tools. Anyone can do this. Here are some photos of the templates, the building jig, and the initial construction of the shell. More to come. Questions and comments welcomed. Russ
  3. I am in the process of building a series of large scale skiff models for some friends. I thought I would share with you the first one. This is a very simple model, somewhat similar to the smaller 1/24 scale skiffs I have built for the past several years. This skiff design is compilation of my skiff research from about 15 years ago. One really neat feature is I can build several skiffs off the same design and then fit and finish them in different ways. No two can or will be alike. Hope you find this interesting. Russ
  4. The subject of this build is the Sea Bright Skiff. The plans are from the book From “The Sea Bright Skiff and Other Shore Boats” by Peter J. Guthorn. This is a 1919 skiff and the plans were created by Harold A Seaman. This boat will be built with coffee sticks. After importing the plans into a cad program a working set was made. The keel has been started and templates for the molds have been made. Walter
  5. I have my first kit, Midwest Products Skiff. I inventoried the parts, and all are present. One of the first steps was to remove two pieces from the wood sheet and glue them together to create the skiff's knee. After sanding I discovered that I had removed too much material and my part was now too small. I decided to make a replacement. I scanned the portion of the plans that showed the part and printed it. I cut out the relevant portion out of the printed copy as a template. I glued it to a piece scrap with rubber cement. I then cut out replacement parts and glued the h
  6. The pictured model is of 18' sprit sail skiff I have since full size build some 20 years ago. She is still sailing, the boat that is. I have since made many alterations gained by experience sailing the boat. The model has never been up dated since her initial bath tub and real sea trials. So I think it's time to make the model look like the actual boat. This image shows the inside painted , ) model was bright)some supports for thwarts a new inwale etc. In building the real boat I made the side planking merge with the stem in a continuous line . Not so
  7. Well, the hiatus on my Niagara continues.... The story goes something like this: One day I am walking around Hobby Lobby with my seven year old, Eva, and we stumble upon the section of the store containing dollhouses. Well, they had this monstrosity there in the color red and her eyes got as big as dinner plates and I watched as her face lit up like few times I have seen before. With Christmas and then her birthday right around the corner, it was a no-brainer. Needless to say, I was back the next week with a coupon for 40% off and I made the purchase of a dollhouse KIT (I stress the kit pa
