  1. G’day. I’m a new member, so this will be my first build log. I’ve been trying to decide whether to commit to a log, as there are already finished logs of the same kit here, but I’ll do this for a couple of reasons: 1: To possibly aid newcomers overcome self-doubt in starting a kit. 2: To force myself to pay more attention to my own processes, because I find myself looking at details of kits I’ve completed and wonder “How the hell did I do that bit?” 3: To benefit from other member’s advice and thereby improve my own skills. I’ll try to detail the planking process be
  2. Hello everyone and welcome to my build log for Caldercrafts HM Supply. As this is my first ship build I hope that this will be a successful endevour and not one of the many abandoned build logs that I have read about. I received my kit yesterday and couldn't resist sitting down right away and taking an inventory of all the parts. With the exception of a couple of dowels everything was there and the quality looks very good. The ply doesn't have any missing layers from the cutting like I have seen in other build logs and everything seems to be straight as an arrow. Both of which h
  3. Ahoy! I'm returning to ship modelling to complete this model. I stopped after I fell down the stairs with it quite a while ago. Most of the damage was to the bowspirit, dislodged cannons, and small miscellaneous breaks. It had gathered a bit of dust over the years on the shelf. I cleaned of the dust bunnies with brushes. A couple of pieces had to be reconstructed because they were lost, then it was just rerigging.
  4. Hello All, Welcome to my build log of the HMS Supply. As far as I can tell after searching through this forum this is the only build log of this ship by this manufacturer. Although I think this will build up to a nice model straight out of the box I will be making a few modifications to enhance the kit. A brief history of the ship. The keel of the Supply was laid down 261 years ago on the 1st of May 1759, she was designed by shipwright Thomas Slade as a yard craft for the distribution of naval supplies. Construction was contracted to Henry Bird of Rotherhithe, a Borough of Sout
  5. HM Brig Supply 1759 Yard Transport / Convict Ship - the ship that, ahead of the first convict fleet, was first to enter Australian waters and what became Sydney harbour. First impressions; a very long, heavy box (the delivery note claimed it was 3Kg!), on opening I was surprised first by the amount of sawdust(!) then the reason for all the weight; copious amounts of 5mm thick ply and walnut panels very much in evidence, not to mention a staggering amount of planking, doweling etc. The quality of the wood and indeed the fittings appears good and that is very encouraging. The instruction
  6. I finished my Endeavour Longboat a couple of weeks ago and procrastinated over what to build next. I decided on the HM Brig Supply by Caldercraft wanting a more detailed kit with better instructions, preferably with 2 or less masts, definitely preferably with cannons and ideally something historically significant to Australia. After a couple of weeks of nervous anticipation the big brown box arrived from Cornwall Model Boats today. I quickly opened it to have a look and firstly was blown away by how much bigger everything was than on the longboat kit. However, I was dis
  7. Hello Started this about 2 years ago. Building this was only possible by learning from all the great builds on this forum - so thanks to all of you. To date have done the Yards with Stirrups and Footropes. Pictures soon. Regards Doug
  8. I was not going to open a build log until I physically started building the ship, however I wanted to open it now as I am currently doing my inventory check on the kit and have had to mail Jotika for a couple of bits to be sent, basically the rudder hinges and brackets. So today really is day 1 as such which sets a date for myself. On first views, I can really see a difference in quality from my previous build attempt with Endeavours longboat which I am hoping to finish at the weekend.The eye opener has to be the build plans, they are totally huge, although they really are something to loo
  9. I"ll try to get everything posted as best as I can. There's a lot of ground to cover, so it might take awhile to catch up where I'm at right now. I know everyone is going thru the same process , patience will be the guide!!!! So, we'll start at the very begining. For those of you that are new to this forum I hope this will be of some help, if not, at least entertaining! The first group consists of the basic hull construction and the placing of the deck. Extra supports were added on frame 3 and 8 to help support the deck . Frank
  10. Hello Folks, I want to show you my first wooden ship based on HMS Supply - First Fleet. Why "based", I compared some model kit and the instructions and came to the judgment that no one knows how the supply looks right. Any Company made there own creation....!!! Here are some information from wikipedia. "HMS Supply was a small ship, an armed tender which sailed with the First Fleet. She was intended to be a support ship for HMS Sirius (1786). The First Fleet carried the convicts and soldiers to Australia to start a penal colony. The ships left England in May 1787 and arrived in Aus
  11. Well done guys for getting the site going again,i would have hated to be in the room when everything dissapeared into the Burmuda triangle.Ron.
  12. First let me say thank you to those responsible for the resurrection of this site. I am sure all of us are grateful for one reason or another. For myself I needed it to see where things should go on this ship that the instructions do not even mention and to learn the way to do things. I first posted the start of this build on the old site in late 2010. After becoming very frustrated with the way it was going together, a few months later I packed it away in a cupboard and forgot about it. Early 2013 I started again and made the decision to make the best of what I had done and hope i
