Model Shipways schooner FORESTER


Recommended Posts

John:

This kit has been out of production for 25-30 years at least so I doubt there will be any build logs. Maybe someone has built the kit back in the day though.

A really good source for rigging details can be found in " The Rigging of West Coast Barkentines & Schooners" by Ron Cleveland. Highly detailed drawings including loading rigs. Don't think it was ever published but the San Francisco Maritme Museum has the original. May be available from some libraries.

Hello, i am new to this forum. I am looking for the plans of the Schooner Forester.. i have found a few pictures on internet, but would like to have a clean set.. Would you know where i could find them? Thank you, k

 

Did you check with Model Shipways to see if they still have the plans archived somewhere?

I'm currently working on the model that my father purchased back in the seventies but never started.  I have the hull done and am beginning to work on deck fittings. The drawings are very good, but the instructions for building the model are very minimal.  There is a bit of the project that I am scratch building.  I have spent countless hours lying in bed trying to figure out "work-arounds."  I suppose, in the end, that is part of the enjoyment and reward.  I must say, however, her hull lines are beautiful.  I only build during the winter months because I have too many other hobbies and things to do during the summer months.  So it will be a while before I get back to it.  I'm hoping that I'll be done around this time next year.

Welcome to MSW B

It would be great if you posted a little intro in the new members forum as well.

What model are you building?  If you start a build log you could get a lot of helpful suggestions on work arounds and thus get more sleep😀
