  1. My new project is a steam yacht from 1884. It's Loreley. The drawings are made by myself which I shared some time ago in this forum.
  2. The Hatton and Hart photographs were/are my primary source for trying to create as much model authenticity as possible. Sometimes I have to assume, which I hate. Example being, on the upper stern deck a partial funnel profile can be seen behind and to the port side of a binnacle. (I may as well jump on this grenade while I'm here. This binnacle appears to be about five and a half feet tall, a foot and a half above the standard four feet. Access to viewing the compass is aided by a two step ladder propped up against it seen in the first of the four H&H photos.. I'm guessing the reason for t
  3. S.M.S. WESPE (HENK, 1895) History and context The WESPE-Class armoured gun-boats of the then young Imperial German Navy were born out of a tactical concept that dated well back into the Napoleonic era. The idea was to mount a heavy long-range gun onto a highly mobile small craft that would be able to retire into shallow coastal waters, beyond the range of even the heavy artillery of an attacking fleet. The addition of a steam engine and the increase in calibre followed the development of the time, of course. Adding heavy armour to the front (mainly) was meant to give the gun-boats a certa
  4. Hi folks, the new project. I am not the sole builder of this model which is a club project for the Ship Modelling Society of Victoria. I am coordinating the build, doing the research, drawing the plans and assisting in the build process. I am providing this log as she is an interesting ship and I thought members may be interested. While designed as a warship along the lines of the contemporary Arrow and Vigilant Classes of Gun Dispatch vessels, she was operated in various roles, with only a very short period of active duty as a commissioned ship during the Maori Wars in New Zea
  5. hi . its now time to start the build log for the us coast guard cable steam boat. a wil write more soon how its going to be built ! here ate some photos of the frame for now! svein erik
  6. As I wrote here http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/11538-western-river-steamboat-heroine-by-ggrieco-scale-124-1838-as-she-appeared-before-hitting-a-snag-in-the-red-river/?p=401974I plan to build the USS Cairo, as all my modelships in 1:50 scale. The history of the ship is well known, there are so many pages in the internet, so I will not bore you with that. But there is a big question I have. I have a set of the plans from bob hill, and I am not sure, where to measure the length of the ship. Is the lenght of 175 feet measured at the hull, or includes this the rudders between the blue li
  7. Ok. Am starting this log because I have deside to build this steam cutter , am still working on the plans , in 1:48 scale this ship vil be about 105 cm long and about 20 cm wide the hull wil be made of wood and planking , the orginal is steel but I wil use silver tape for the steel plating with nails. there wil also be alot of metal sheets to soldering . for now I orderd the book, us.coast guard and revenue cutters 1790-1935.by Donald L.Canney and orded som birchwood plywood for the frame (6mm) Here is the first photo of my big prodjekt Svei
  8. Hi all well since my kit building seems to be getting very shabby i thought maybe going back to scratch building may get them back on track I had a choice of plans to pick from and I narrowed it down to 3 possible I eliminated the St Louis Belle as I want a fairly quick build not a three yr jobbie also I eliminated the Kitty as it was a little too simple so I opted for the WC Normally I like to build large scratch builds but due to space I'm reducing this by 50% First problem is that the keel at the reduced size is very flimsy so I've changed the plan a bit to give some stre
  9. Introduction : This project has been completed already in the years 1984 / 1985, when I was still a young man. I had the intension of building my own designed steam engine for a model ship. A regular steam engine with crosshead-guides and Stephenson reversing control device, was too complicated to build, in lack of neighther lathe nor milling machine (still do`nt have….). So I decided to design a steam-motor with a minimum on moving parts, and yet powerful enough to propell an appr. 1100 mm long RC controlled ship model. And the driving challenge was also to see if I could do it
  10. Some time ago I promised my wife to make for her a ship in a bottle larger sizes than previously made. I begin to fulfill a promise - it will the model of the steam schooner with the glorious history and the symbolic name "LENA". History: The wind power meets the power of steam in late 1800’s . In this period of maritime history, a hybrid generation of ships appeared combining these two. They kept the glory of sail ships and added independency from wind. Lena is a little steam schooner like that. She was launched in 1875 in Sweden by Motala. She was 26.8m long, 4.95m wide
  11. For those of you who have been directed here from my Armenia build in the ‘Build Logs for SCRATCH SHIP MODEL PROJECTS’, please bear with me. For those of you not coming from that build link I will be developing a 3-D model of the Hudson River sidewheeler, Armenia. Briefly, the Armenia (1847-1886) was built by Thomas Collyer, New York. She had a wood hull with an overall length of 187 feet, a molded beam of 28 feet with an extreme beam of 50 feet with a depth of 8 feet 6 inches. She displaced 391 tons. She was powered by a Henry Dunham vertical (walking) beam engine. The paddlewheels are 29 f
  12. Hello all. This is my third build log here on MSW and will be my first attempt at scratch building a ship. The ship that I will be trying to build is a Hudson River sidewheeler named the Armenia. I acquired plans for this vessel through my local model club (Connecticut Marine Model Society) and there are two main reasons I decided to build her. First I found the ‘walking beam engine’ that drives her paddlewheels to be a fascinating piece of machinery; the second and maybe the more important is that the admiral likes her too. The original plans, by F. Van Loon Ryder dated 1954, a
  13. Hello wood-, iron- and steelworms! The very first thing I've to admit is the scale is nominally 1/36 - but due to an enlargment fault it is only 1/40. So I said to myself "Damed 4 dots beside the lne... it could have been the drying of the paper or the wrapage in the big copy machine... so I decided to take the plans as they are - and do the start with them. I've got a thread about the plans here: http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/12596-ss-warkworth-an-early-steamer-not-too-big-please/ andall the planing facts will be placed there.
