  1. Aveți cumva planuri pentru YACHTURI de lux?
  2. Hello, I am starting to build a model of the imperial yacht De Krone, donated to Peter I by the Prussian King Freed. Wilg. I in 1717 and brought to St. Petersburg in the spring of 1719.
  3. Good morning! As my Amati HMS Victory is currently on hiatus due to needing a good number of sheet replacements, I'll start work immediately on the future Vanguard Models release of the Royal Yacht, 'Duchess of Kingston'. As with my other VM stuff, this will be for the kit instruction manual. Chris conceded that (1) he hadn't taken enough photos of the original build, and (2) the design had changed significantly enough from his own build to merit a new build anyway, so the manual is representative of the final product. Yesterday, I received a large box with the final pr
  4. My new project is a steam yacht from 1884. It's Loreley. The drawings are made by myself which I shared some time ago in this forum.
  5. Hi folks Well, I’ve been a bit impatient lately and started on my next model, Sapphire, before my previous model, Genesis is completely finished. Anyhow, Sapphire is based on an actual mega-yacht called, Okto (https://www.yachtcharterfleet.com/luxury-charter-yacht-43054/okto-yacht-charter-printable.pdf). As is customary with all of my miniature models, the interior accomodation will be fully detailed and viewable through removable decks and superstructure. I hope you can join me on Sapphire’s journey. Cheers. Patrick
  6. After some time away from model building ( about 3 months ), I finally have enough of a break to get a start on building the Buzzards Bay 14ftr. Designed by L. Francis Herreshoff. This will be my 3rd build log on this topic ( I have always had an admiration for this Boat ), However this build will be done in the upside down fashion.( the other 2 were built using a Keel/strongback setup ), I belive that building the Boat in this manner will ( the same as if it were built full scale ), will give a more accurate boat. I started by setting up the building jig, Cutting out the frames and setting th
  7. One more new small project. My thanks to Cap'n'Bob for support. Best Regards! Igor.
  8. I started making Pen Duick a few years ago and I had long break. Now I am making the deck, and I will show pictures from the beginning. Pen Duick was named since 1935, is a cutter drawn in 1898 by William Fife III, famous naval architect, and built in Ireland under the name of Yum. With an overall length of 15.1 m and 10 m to the floating for 2.9 m of maximum width, it supports 160 m2 of sails. Since 1938, Eric Tabarly sailed on the Penduick bought by his father. The Penduick was restored a first time in 1958, to reinforce the hull by a thickness of polyester, then was rebuilt
  9. Hello Model Friends. After much research and more considerations, I decided to build the model of the "ROYAL CAROLINE 1749". The history of the Royal Caroline has been written x times, so I'll give up on more details. After the sparse construction drawings, as well as various to scale without drawings in the book by AotS I have strong doubts about the success of the project, but I try it anyway. The plan drawings by Boudriot, Delacroix from ANCRE publishing house, on the other hand, are top class in their own right, i very first
  10. I have just been given this old yacht or coastal trader by a guy at work in his 60's,his dad used to play with this model as a young boy.It will be a slow restoration there is some good work on it,brass and some plastic.It looks like it's carved out of solid timber.It's about 1 metre long.The name on it is from a steamship that used to call into Lyttelton.I may strip all the paint off wait and see the deck is 10mm solid wood,the strip at the bottom is lead.Any info or advice to it's restoration will be greatly appreciated thanks ron.

  12. The wife bought me these plans last Christmas after seeing me looking at them on the NMM website, last week before Xmas she asked me where were they and why hadn't I built it yet???? I had actually copied the plans and made bulkhead patterns The plans appear to be at 1/32 but the stem of the boat is missing so full length isn't known however extending the lines and using the deck plan a reasonable assumption can be made A false keel was made from ply along with the bulkheads, the ship plans say longboat in the notes but it is fully decked with a state room, and fireplace b
  13. Hi fellas. I am currently building Emma on another thread but I want something just a bit smaller so as to carry it in a bag ( by train) to the model sailing club some 20 ks away. Some of us have to or prefer to do without a car. As a kid ( and older! ) I have built numerous Vic Smeed designs. In fact my claim to fame is that I came second in a " Tomboy " free flight competition at Middle Wallop in the UK some years back. Needless to say the " Tomboy" was a Vic Smeed design and he appeared on that day. THAT!!! was my day bowled over. They are all simple and
  14. Disclaimer This is all Pete's fault. Because I already have too many builds on the go I thought why not another one. I know there are a few others here who merrily go about building a few boats/ships at the same time one of them shall remain nameless but we all know who it is. Pete has already done enough waxing eloquently about the merits of the Herreshoff lineage of boat designs so there is no need for me to go into any great details here except to say that I completely agree with him on the elegance of the Herreshoff lines no matter what size he designed.
  15. Dear friends model builders, I am starting here a new build log in the name of my very good friend Mile Bijelić. We have registered Mile last weekend and since Mile has limited access to a computer and is just learning in getting used to it, I will be posting his photos more often. Nevertheless, Mile will read the comments and reply - possibly with a certain delay, you may excuse him. First to introduce Mile Bijelić from my point of view: Mile is a very kind and dear person who impressed me since many years with his extremely exact way of working with the models. As far
  16. Dear colleagues. Today, April 8, 2016 start construction of another ship model, the imperial yacht Standart. To begin with a brief historical background, drawings, historical photographs.and photos of the model of the Naval Museum in St. Petersburg. It was founded October 1, 1893 at the shipyard Burmeister and Wain in Copenhagen. Launched Aug. 4, 1895. It entered into service in 1896 as the Imperial yacht. Delivered to the port in May 1918. In 1933-1936, it converted into a minelayer. He participated in the productions of mine, the evacuation
  17. Greetings my honorable colleagues. Asking the admittance to “the Dutch club”🙂 I have found the drawing in the internet, scale 1:30. I’m planning on working with the pear tree and black hornbeam. I would be very grateful for the advices and constructive critics. For the moment the model has a certain level of readiness. I will download the report in the chronological order. I also wanted to say that English is not my native language and I would have to use the translator sometimes. Due to this the terminology and information could be mistranslated. In advance, my since
  18. Dear friends I have started to build a sail ship model based on a french plan for which it was impossible to get additional information. The reason was that I lost my job in 2000 when the internet hype broke and never ever since than been employed again. Since than I have worked on all kind of issues and after years my old degree as a technical translator has proven to be the best source of income until in April 2012 I was hit by a stroke which has degraded some how my abilities. But this project has proven over the years to be a source for having every day an agenda that has no em
