  1. Having finished my Titanic kit I wanted to build the SS United States as a size comparison. The Glencoe kit is one step above "bathtub toy". I intend to replace the decal hand rails with photoetch.
  2. Hello, I just starting my first ship, the "Black Prince" by Mamoli. I was lost until I found your planking for beginners article. Thank you. My great x X Grandfather was Joshuah Humphreys , coined the father of the US Navy, having designed the first USN six frigates. Previously he armed Benjamin Franklins merchant ships during the revolutionary war. One was the "Black Prince". I am having fun, learning and again thanx in appreciation. Marc
  3. Hello all, as promised I'd like to show my actual project: USS United States. First I have to mention that this is a really worse kit by means of historical and technical correctness. So let's have a close look at the kit and the ship itself: USS United States has been one of the "Original Six" frigates authorized 1794 by the Congress. They've been built under supervision of Joshua Humphreys. Her service history is shown on threedecks.org and Wikipedia. There's very few evidence about her appearance. It IS evident that she had a raised quar
  4. For those of you with curiosity concerning how the first US Frigates were equipped for sea, you may find a ten page listing of the sundries received by the Frigate United States in 1798 at the following link: http://wardepartmentpapers.org/document.php?id=27521 There are some interesting items - including the quantity of powder (268 barrels), grape shot (3,705 2lb grape), compasses (several), 6 panes of glass, 99 gal sherry wine, 48 3/4 gal port wine, 62 gal molasses, and 462 gal of vinegar.
  5. this is the Revell 1:96 scale kit. I had built this kit some time ago. the model was short lived though and met it's demise at my hand. I had been looking for another one for quite a while. I got a tip that there was one on E-bay........didn't think I would suceed......but I managed to get it. it spent a long time in the closet, until one day, when my curiosity got the best of me. I had seen Daniel's build of the Victory here on the site, and wondered if I could pull something like that off. so here it is.....in it's infancy. Now, when Revell came out with this series of larg
  6. Hi everyone - as I mentioned in my "New Member Introduction" post, this is my first time truly building a model ship. I normally build figure kits, sci-fi, fantasy, super heroes, dinosaurs, monsters, etc. And my only experience with rigging was the Wright Brothers' model plane. But I was at a garage sale and picked this kit up for an amazing $5! And it was 100% complete. I felt like a thief. But I took it home. So here is my build log. I'm super excited to be embarking on this voyage but slightly intimidated by the rigging. Note: As this is my first kit, I will likely buil
