  1. Thanks to all of you for your patience over the Holidays. I was busy with family and fun for the last two weeks or so and barely stepped into the workshop. But now I am back at it. I know many of you have contacted me about some some items not in stock but rest assured that over the next two weeks or so they should be ready. I apologize for the delay. I have several sizes of rope and blocks being made as we speak and should be fully stocked very soon. I just finished up a bunch of 3/16" and 1/8" blocks as shown above....1800 of them in the last two days and the image shows them fresh out
  2. And so it begins. I just received my Medway Kit. And this is the beginning of my build log. I contacted Chuck a couple weeks ago and asked when he would have some kits in stock. He was kind enough to drop me an email telling there were 6 new kits. But the time I placed my order 4 were gone. 4 days later I received my kit. There is no comparison to receiving a Kit from Chuck and any other supplier. This is my first order from the Syren ship company besides parts & rigging. The quality is unmatched. The nice aroma of Cedar isn't bad either. I did the checklist (which by the way
  3. I'm very excited about joining this project and realize I'm a bit of a Johnny come lately here, but will do my best to catch up without rushing. Ordered up the plans today, which have already shipped and should arrive Wednesday. Ordered 12 sheets of 1/4"x12x24 Plywood which should arrive on Thursday. Bought plenty of extra plywood and ordered 3 copies of the false keel, so plenty of room for mistakes. The last major task for this week is to find a nice scroll saw. I had a cheap variable speed years ago that slowly ramped up the speed to max the longer it was used, s
  4. Hi all, I'm starting my build log for the new and improved Winchelsea. I'm looking forward to building her here with everyone. I have yet to decide what woods I will build her in but most likely it will be pear or boxwood. I won't be able to start any real work on her until late September as work intrudes on my shop time this time of year. What little free time I will have I'll be printing and reviewing the plans and monograph and ordering up what supplies I may need. I'll also have the pleasure of living vicariously through all the builds that start before me.
  5. Hello everyone, I've gone and done it.!! Bought the plans, set up the build log, printed the bulkhead patterns. Just don't know where I'm going to find the time or space for this one though. Thanks for having me 👍😀
  6. After seeing , in person, the beautiful models of Winnie being done by Chuck and Mike, there was no way that I wouldn't want to give it a try myself. Actual work will have to wait until I get back to Florida next month. Bob
  7. I have made so many mistakes on my Winchelsea - not big ones for the most part; but nevertheless leaving me thinking "I could/should have done better" – that I am going to start a new build. I don't aspire to match the standards of Chuck or Mike and others but I do hope to improve. For the first build ("W1") I took Chuck at his word as to the cost of buying the Syren bulkhead pack – well over £200 here in the UK with shipping and import duty – against buying a scroll saw and a sheet of plywood so the cost of starting again is pretty modest. I will build W2 to the end o
  8. After much research I am ready to build Chuck Passaro’s @Chuck Revenue Cutter Cheerful 1806. And so it begins... After completing nine kits over the years I am making my first attempt at scratch building. Well, I say scratch building but Chuck’s Cheerful plans, starter kit, wood package, and sub-assemblies along with his instructions and always gracious guidance make it a much easier transition. While I’m a decent kit modeler I’m hesitant to post a build log for Cheerful. There are several outstanding logs already on MSW, some from builders I’ve admired, some I’ve jus
  9. After seeing Chucks Queen Anne Barge at the NRG conference in St Petersburg (2017) I knew that I wanted to build this one. I have always been drawn to the so called dockyard or admiralty style models. I really like the exposed frames and the ability to see into the ship/boat to see the architectural details. After learning quite a bit on the last build I am moving on to this more complicated kit. The kit was packaged well and has 2 pages of plans and pdf instructions form the website. I do like having paper instructions so printed the pdf's (now I know why Chuck doesn't inclu
  10. Looking forward to starting this group project as soon as Chuck is able to supply the kits.
  11. This will be the start of my Medway Longboat kit once I receive it. I have been following the development of this kit and it will be fun building it in a Group setting. I have watched projects being developed over the years by Chuck and each one gets better and more innovative than the one that preceded it. The first step in this build is to visit the downloads page which has all of the chapters of the build plus other information that will help you in the building of your Longboat. It can be accessed by going to the link below:
  12. I’m going to build the HMS Winchelsea. I will build from scratch. Most of my build will be plywood and basswood with cedar carvings. I am backed up a couple of builds, but I will be participating. I can’t pass this one up. The Winchelsea makes for an impressive model.
  13. I have been catching up wit the group build. I discovered moths after it went life. I have been following your progress and has been quite useful. So far I have not manage to get my self in trouble thanks to your posts. I put to good use my coping saw and got a slay from Hobby Tools to ensure the structure will be straight.
  14. After a false start in which I snapped off the bow extension when removing the bulkhead former from the sheet! Things seem to be going well now. The two sections of the bulkhead former were glued together and the rabbet strip glued in place. The stem pieces and the keel were sanded on their faces to remove laser car but the edges were left unsanded. The treenails were simulated as described by chuck using a 0.5 mm drill and filling with neutral filler. After a coat of wipe-on-polly they were glued to the bulkhead former and fitted well with out the need for fettling.
  15. Hi all, just got my first parts from Chuck/Syren, and excited to find this group build for a transition towards ‘all scratch’! cheers- Scott
  16. I actually started this build in April 2018 having had a few sidetracks along the way. Fortunately I had taken some build progress photos at various stages, as I am currently at the point of finishing the deck fittings, but that will be for a future post. This is my first attempt at a plank on frame model having only built solid hull kits from either Model Shipways or Bluejacket in the past. I consider myself a novice, at best, but I am extremely fortunate to be a member of the Ship Model Society of New Jersey and have had much help and guidance from the members along the way. Special
  17. Bit late to the party but I've taken plunge and ordered laser cut parts for chapters 1 and 2. Plans downloaded and ready to print. Looking at scrollsaws now as costs for laser cut bulkheads plus international shipping would virtually pay for saw (and its a good excuse for a new toy 🙂 ). This is very much a long term project so don't expect fast progress. Have a vanguard models HMS Alert on the go at the moment with a Medway Longboat in early stages too. Cutting bulkheads for Winnie will be a filler project when I want a break from smaller scale stuff. I don't exp
  18. Took my time deciding whether or not to attempt a build log but for better or for worse here goes. When I first came across the Winchelsea on Chuck’s website I thought it to be well above my skill level but after reading the logs and being encouraged by the helpful attitude of folk on this forum I decided to “give it a go”. Being a couple of months away from finishing my current project, it gives me time to start squirreling away some of the items that will be required. At the moment I have two parcels on their way from Chuck and Jim Bynes is in the process of building one of h
  19. Welcome to the Winnie project. Yes I am starting over again. Many of you might wonder why I would do such a thing. There are several good reasons actually. Let me explain. - About 3 years ago during a flood in my workshop, the 1st Winnie was severely damaged. Although not submerged the humidty and moisture cause the planking at the bow to open up like a banana being peeled back. I did fix it as best I could but I will never be as happy with it now. - It has been a long time since I first designed the project and I have learned a great deal since th
  20. Reckon I’ll take the plunge, this will use the full range of Chuck’s bulkheads and fittings, but as I have some hefty English Boxwood logs and a large quantity of Pear I’ll mill my own lumber, I also have some Ebony I’ll throw in as well. I’ve taken Advantage of the NRG 2 years renewal offer as well, so I’m signed up for a while now, perhaps even longer enough to build the base board 😁 Gary
  21. Welcome to my Winchelsea build which will be done alongside Hayling. It will be based on Chuck's version II design. I have chosen to build the ship mainly from Cherry. It will be a P.O.B. model, using the laser cut parts and mini-kits that Chuck will offer. This will be a fun build for me and I'm looking forward to the many challenges that are ahead. The build starts with making the Knee of the Head from Chuck's laser cut kit. Cherry, being a softer wood than Boxwood, cuts somewhat cleaner and the pieces fit together quite nicely. Only a gentle scraping with a #11 blade was needed t
  22. After drooling over many many kits and model builds all over the place, a magical force directed me over to the Syren Ship Model Company. Chuck Passaro's frigate hit me almost as hard as when I first laid eyes on my beautiful wife. I have to build it! So far I have built a lot of card models and built 2 ship hulls from wood, based on Shipyard designs. This will be a learning experience for me and a great joy. For you guys looking in on this it might be a lesson in 'how not to do things' but I'm hoping you will point in the right direction or administer a virtual swift kick For too
  23. I am happy to announce that I have purchased the plans and am starting my build log for the HMS Winchelsea. I've been interested in this since the first time I saw the project on the Syren Ship Models website. I'm very excited to start a group project early on in its inception. It will be fun to work on this with so many other modelers. Thank you, Chuck, for putting this together and sharing your hard work and passion with us. I will download the plans and get started on cutting frames this week.
  24. SOLVED The photo below shows my first and only try at rope making. It's 7 feet long and .022" thick and was produced on the Syren Rope Rocket. I'm quite pleased with the way it looks as it's the right color for my project and has no tendency to unravel. However, I want to make sure I am not leaving out a step. My goal is to get ~ .040 to .045", "bright straw" color, right laid whale line. These are the steps I took: - Three threads of Mara 30 (right twist) unwound and rewound quite tightly with a left twist - I did NOT stretch, apply water or apply beeswax after this rewi
  25. I bought the plans and started the build log. However, it may be a few weeks until I start this project. I just ordered a Byrnes saw and will be a while before I get it. Please be patient. I've always wanted to do a scratch build and it seems this is a good one for new scratch builders. Hopefully I'll get this on the go soon.
