  1. I had started some build log in the former edition of this forum, and for a number of reasons I did not rewrite it in the new version. Some of the reasons (excuses): - A lot of work involved - Not familiar with the new procedures to insert pics - Long term inactivity on the project - Moderate interest from other members… I have now restarted the build and will re-post some of the previously sent pictures, if I manage to tackle the pictures insertion. Anyway this is the model as it looks now. Any critical or better, constructive meaning is more than welcome, bearing in mind that n
  2. Hello fellow MSW members After finishing my Cross section build I wasn't sure what my next project would be . While looking at different boats i started thinking back to when I was young .I was born in New Bedford Massachusetts,and as a kid I can remember visiting the Whaling Mueseum . https://www.whalingmuseum.org/ and they always had such great stuff on display and in the Bourne building was a massive display of the vessel "Lagoda" . As a kid I couldn't wait to get to the vessel to explore it .My grandmother lived maybe a mile away from the museum so we would go visit several ti
  3. So here's the start of a nice long and deep project. Unknown Whaling bark. I have to assume that this is not a known ship but the builders idea of what one would look like.

The hull was found to be a half *** finishing job with tool marks, too much wood filler or non at all. The last one to paint the hull layed down a ve
  4. Hi, The subject of this build is the Hampton Whaler as illustrated on page 143 of Howard I. Chapelle’s book American Small Sailing Craft. For me the purpose of this project is to acquire some Cad drawing skills, enter the world of scratch building and experiment with lifting plans from books. The scale chosen is 1:44 so the boat could be built from coffee stirrers picked up from a famous coffee shop over many visits. The first step of the project was to photograph page 143 and import it into turbo cad.
  5. From the album: Whalship Wanderer, restoration of an 80 year old model

    I was asked to complete a model that had been brought to the hull stage 80 years ago. There were lower masts and a bowsprit but little else and I built the rest and rigged the model in 2015.
