  1. This is a fun and quicky project. My grandson is building it with a little help from Grandad. We saw some you tubes on these wonderful little craft. Next best thing to steam power but a darned sight cheaper. It is powered by its own pop pop motor which we shall be making next. It makes a realistic pop pop!!! Sound. This is a fun toy but to be honest ,because it has a live burning flame inside it, it can hardly be given to a very young child. I think 13 is okay. Not so sure about the 69 year old though!!! Ha ha. If you get the itch and secretly build one,
  2. Hi everyone This is my second venture into model boat building. The first model was an unbuilt yacht design by a Sydney amateur yacht designer; this one is a much earlier design by the same man - E.C. "Cliff" Gale. Karoo was a 20' open sailing boat with a bowsprit & gaff sloop rig. Karoo was raced & was also a family boat. Incredibly they (Cliff & Mrs Gale, plus 3 strapping young sons) used to pack her full of gear for holidays & spend a week or two aboard on Pittwater, Broken Bay & the associated waterways Cowan Creek, Coal & Candle Creek etc.
  3. This will be a 1/48 scale model of a six meter (20 foot) Misainier fishing boat from the early 1900s. The Misainier was an important feature of the French Atlantic Coast in the early part of the 20th century. These little boats were usually 4 to 8 meters long, single masted, lug rigged, and built by individuals without formal plans. Hundreds plied the coastal fishing grounds of Brittany until the mid 1900s.
  4. I have been researching the famous Scottish Fifies, and am inspired to try building a model of a small to medium sized boat of 42-feet (12.8 meters). Detailed information about these boats is hard to find. Evidently, the real boats were mostly built by sight, without the help of plans or half-hull models, so there is not a lot of documentation to discover. Most of the sources I did find focus on the large Fifies (60 to 80 feet loa) of the early 1900s. However, from various historical photographs and writings, I am under the impression that smaller boats were more common-place dur
  5. It was interesting to find out that “The Peterboro Canoe” was named due to the association with Peterborough, Ontario. There was a time almost any wooden canoe In the traditional Canadian style, that is, one basically having the appearance of the woodland bark canoe of the North American Indian, could be referred to as “a Peterboro” certainly a rich history with these canoes. So here is a kit I purchased on eBay for less than $50, well worth the hours of entertainment.
  6. Started a new project: a "Galway Hooker." Evidently, these boats have been numerous in Ireland since the early 19th century, and are still being built today. In the past they were working boats, used for fishing and transporting cargo along the coasts of western Ireland. Today's boats are mostly used for pleasure and racing. The hookers range in size from around 20 to 44 feet (6 to 14 meters), and are broken into four classes, based on size or rigging. There are a lot of information on the internet about Galway Hookers, including plans, drawings, and photos. My m
  7. My most recently completed model, HM Bark Endeavour, as she appeared in Tahiti, 1769, to observe the Transit of Venus. Total build time was just under a month. The ship is built to the scale of 75’ to 1” or 1/900. The hull was made from boxwood and planked with Nootka Cyprus. The balance of the detail is Nootka and boxwood. The masts are brass, and the rigging is a mix of nitinol and copper wire. The sea base is carved Nootka Cyprus. If you’d like to see more of my ships, they’re all at www.josephlavender.com
  8. Just started a new boat project. After seeing a photo of a small Brazzera with two lateen masts on Veniceboats.com (http://www.veniceboats.com/brazzera.htm), I had to build one! I have not yet found much historical information about Brazerras rigged this way, but there are several plans for single masted boats available. My model will be fictional, based on the type. A ten meter boat was chosen based on the only photo I could find, from Veniceboats.com. The length of the boat was determined and scaled off the people in the photo, and a comparison to photos of a single masted, 9-
