  1. Well here we go It is a while since I have done anything like this and hopefully I will be able to craft as well as I used to I am also running a blog for this build at http://micklen32.blogspot.co.uk/ My previous builds were the Sergal Racehorse of which I have no record unfortunately Then in 2004 I built the Sergal Thermopylae. Whilst building this I built a web site which amazingly still exists at http://micklen.50megs.com/ Well that's me and my history Now some pictures of the parts and what work I have already accomplished
  2. Hi All I decided to work on 2 models at the same time , perhaps this is because I do get bored of looking at the same build every day. So i got the idea of working on 2 models , and as i work on different stages of each model, I hope to have fun . Here is the first one, it is Vapor Rimac 1848, a side wheel paddle steamer. I didn't start shooting the building log from the begging cause it looked awful . please help me with your comments . thank you all
  3. Good Morning kids! I just wanted to post a couple of photos of some of the items that I have made to assist with my first build. They really are nothing fancy, their focus is on cheap and cheerful. I thought this might help for those of you looking for ideas on how to save some money with this already expensive project. If you have any suggestions, questions or comments please let me know and I will do my best to respond. The photos below are the following. A steam tube, guillotine for cutting specific angles and lengths, an adjustable keel rest and a lockab
  4. Bill E. is a founding member of Model Shipwrights of Western NY and has been modeling since a very early age so his builds are many and his techniques over the years have evolved and embraced modern technology to a large extent. I would have to say he is our main technologist and through him we have been introduced to these modern techniques in a first hand manner. Bill's interest have almost exclusively been in the area of early America powered Navy and Civil War Era craft. He comes by the Civil War interest honestly, as his great grandfather was a captain in the RI First Calvary.
  5. After my latest build, the French cutter Le Cerf, I was looking for a new project. Otherwise my days as a retired old chap would have been too long. Luckily I happened to find out that the formerly skipper of the lake steamer S/S Maaninka was about to give up his original drawings of the ship. His idea had been to make a model of the ship, but due to his high age decided not to do so, and was searching a good home for his drawings and someone who would make the model of her. Well, I promised to try that, and here we are. The ship in question is a lake steamer, built in Varkaus Finl
  6. Hi everyone, After seeing all the great paddle boats some folks are building out there, I decided to attempt one myself. Not sure if this build log will help anyone, but I hope it inspires someone to just build what they see in their head. I am a firm believer that the skills we all possess ( being Model Ship Builders ) should allow us to think out of the box and let our imagination run amok..... Anyway, enough sermonizing.... Once I decided on the scale, I ripped some red oak on the table saw for the perimeter frame of my deck, Then I ran a bunch
  7. Hi friends, I came across a book that might be of interest to those who are interested in old steamships, tugs and other port vessels, or simply in ice-breaking itself. Documentation is rare. Here's the review: M. Görz und M. Buchheister Das Eisbrechwesen im Deutschen Reich Reprint der Ausgabe von 1900 (Icebreaking in the German Reich) (Reprint of the book from 1900) This book is a most complete documentation of the ice-breaking business in imperial Germany. Authored by M. Görz and M. Buchheister, both were directors of waterway administration in imperial Germany and
