  1. Hi, fellow model makers. My name is Matt and this is my first wooden ship build. I picked this model based mainly on research done on this site. It has all of the elements I wanted to get to build - such as: Double plank on bulkhead Finished mahogany hull Two masts Nice looking rigging I started about a week ago. Here are photos of my progress before the weekend.
  2. I bought this kit off of ebay, and it was already started. I had to remove the #12 deck planking from the sides. And taper down some pieces with sand paper to get the right curvature. The deck was put on, but it really doesn't look good. The worst part, sadly is that a few of the hull framing pieces have been glued in incorrectly, as much as 5mm off true. This may or may not cause some problems. If anyone has any advice on how to straighten these pieces, or a fix, please let me know.
  3. I had picked up this kit online and was very excited to start working on it but unfortunately I only got as far as the framing up of the hull and the decking before many things got in the way that caused me to shelve it until now. The last step I finished was to add the deck planks but this is where one of my many questions start. The instructions say to lay the boards full length and then pencil in all the details which I originally had done. However I see that most guys elect to cut the planks to length and then install them which I've decided to do as well so I removed the strip
  4. I am looking to populate my "Virginia" ship models. The scale is 1:41. Are there places that sell that size and have figures from the late 1800s to the early 1900s? So far i have only found modern navy What would the closest mm size be? Would 1/32 work
  5. Hello everyone. This is my first model ship kit and - after running into a snag (more on that in a bit) - I found this forum. I was encouraged to start a build log. I received this kit a few years ago from my father-in-law. He finished a similar kit while he was in medical school, and he thought it would be a good project for me while I was finishing my doctoral thesis. Unfortunately, the thesis took the front seat and I never had a chance to start the kit. Fast forward five years, we're all stuck at home and I no longer have an excuse. I began this kit around the end of March, so I'm around t
  6. Here we go. The Virginia 1819 from Artesania Latina. I chose this one because it seemed like a good kit for a beginner. This first post is just a little overview and my first impressions of the kit. Here are a few shots of the components. I like how the small wood and metal pieces come in a nice plastic box, rather than in bags. The planks are... not exactly what I expected. The planks for the first planking are thicker than what I was expecting, while the planks for the second layer are really thin. It seems like bending the first layer of planks will be a challenge, and I th
  7. This is my first wooden model, so bear with me 🙂 A while back I started to look for a suitable beginner model. I chose a fore-and-aft rigged schooner — simply because I like them — and it is easier than full-rigged ships to start with (or so I heard). I read through many nice MSW build logs here and decided to go with the Artesania Latina’s schooner Virginia 1819. The model instructions were not very thorough or detailed for a beginner and some illustrations were unreadable. No worries, MSW builders had it figured out: e.g. Trufo had posted nice drawings for the
  8. Hi Everyone, After completing a couple of 15.00 Amazon wooden models, i am sure we all know the ones. I Purchased the Virginia 1819. Long story short My Cardiologist suggested I find a hobby to help me relax. After a Week cruising around the New England Islands and visiting many maritime museums the idea came to me. "Why not a model Ship" Being my first "Real" Model, I did make a few mistakes. one big mistake. i used the deck wood for the hull and really did not figure this out until the hull was done. CRAP!!! then i found Model Ship World and thanks to all the Vi
  9. Hi! I upload pictures of my construction, unfortunately I was not so successful building the wooden poles of the ship's body, see a picture of the front. I'll fix it by adding some pieces of wood. Roni
  10. I decided to take the plunge to see if I could put together a wooden model ship kit. Apparently it's in my genes. My great grandfather once acquired blueprints from the Library of Congress to build a scale version of the Sovereign of the Seas. I'm definitely not reaching that high yet. Alas, I'm also not one to start with something simple. Nope. I like to know I'll get a challenge or two and expand my selection of colorful metaphors when confused. I went with the Artesania Latina Virginia 1819 kit. I really enjoy the look of it and thought it might reside in my office at work. So
  11. Good Evening - I'm Dave and this is my first build. I've been wanting to take on this challenge for years and finally got a kit a year or two ago. The kit has finally come off the shelf and Im ready to get going! There's several build logs which I have poured over and another person that has recently started the same build - Im glad there is plenty of resources to look to as I get started! The Kit and workbench: So first question... looking through the cutouts, I noticed the false keel is somewhat bent. If a lay it on the table and hold down one side, the opposite
  12. I have recently started building the Virginia 1819 Schooner from Artesania Latina. Having started building and flying (often crashing and rebuilding) RC aircraft, I decided to try my hand at modeling my other passion, ships. I have spent a lot of time working on traditional vessels ("Tall Ships") and so I am very excited to be able to actually build a model of one on my own. I have sort of skipped ahead and did not take many pictures at the beginning of my build but I have been perusing the forums and have been so impressed with the wealth of information here. It is exciting to see so many dif
  13. This was my first experience with model boat building . I randomly choose this model and got addicted !!. It took my 4 months and the did the Lady Nelson. So here is my journey along the way. Current Build: BlueNose II - Artesenia Latina Previous Builds: HMAV Bounty 1787 - Amati; Lady Nelson - Victory Models. Next build : Amerigo Vespucci 1:84 - Panart
  14. After lurking for a while and checking out everyone's amazing builds on here, i decided to embark on one of my own. I had previously done plastic modelling and such but nothing ever quite like this so needless to say it was a bit daunting and overwhelming what with the vast amount of knowledge people seem to have and how the instructions for these models arent super clear. I wasnt going to do a build log for the ship originally mainly because it was my first one and i wasnt sure how well it would turn out. But so far i am quite pleased! It is not perfect and there are flaws and things i am
  15. I started this, my 1st actual build, with all intentions of starting a build log and keeping it up dated. So, here is where I was at on Jan. 1, 2017. The bulkheads were fitted, the false deck was marked for the centerline, and, I had started the build of the companion just for a little instant gratification.
  16. After long internal debating, the combination of loving a certain movie with a certain ship in it (that will require no further explanation and certainly will not cause any Surprise on this forum, I guess) and a life-long passion for modeling, I took the plunge. The ultimate goal is to make myself a nice model of HMS Surprise, but as I never did a wooden ship before, I really didn't want to mess it up (nd kill any budding joy for this fascinating hobby by getting frustrated...), so I followed the advice found on most sites: start with an easy model... I choose the AL Virginia 1819 US Schoone
  17. Hi, as the title says I am about to start building the Virginia 1819 by Artesania Latina. This will be my first model ship that I have built, I've gone through instructions and before I start I have a few general question: 1. What glue should I use? The instructions have a General Tips section where they mention three different glues: white glue (carpenters glue), contact glue (shoemakers glue), and quick-drying glue. Except in one, or maybe two, places they do not specify what glue to use. 2. When should I varnish the parts? The instructions do mention that I should varnish the hull befor
  18. Good day everyone, I am a young delivery skipper out of South Africa. I have recently bought the Virginia 1819 model ship. I am very new to the model building. I have built a small aircraft but never a ship and never to this detail. I will be building the Virginia in my off time, between deliveries. At the moment I have assembled the false keel and supports along with the deck. I am in the process of laying the hull(a lot more difficult than I thought) . If anyone has any info on the bending and shaping of the planking, please feel free to comment. Any advice is good advice. I do not
