Howard W. Middleton by kayakerlarry - FINISHED - scale 1:96 - 1883 coastal coal schooner

Recommended Posts

Here's a view from the opposite direction where you can see the "deadly" rock just exposed at a very low tide.  

 

 

And here is current progress - almost done.  Installed mizzen backstay and working on main/fore mast backstays.  Cherry base has final coat of finishing oil and final work to be done on installing centerboard, rudder and dinghy - all ready to go once model is placed onto 3/32" brass rods on base.   Will post final pictures once complete.

FINISHED!!!!!!  Only took me 26 years since measurements were taken of actual wreck on beach and 5 years from first purchase of wood for model - now what am I going to do for the next 26 years????  A few final pics before I put on glass case top and move to final resting place...

Thanks, Mark.  Here is her final resting place on stair landing - we are going to do a kitchen/living room reno and perhaps she will get the place of honor in the living room built in...

 

Model Shipways New Bedford Whaleboat just arrived today so hopefully this one won't take me 5 years!

 

Thanks for everyone's support and guidance.

 

Larry

Larry, she is an astonishing  beauty. Like most of the unseen beautys she is a workhorse not a warship. Lokal history offers often amaizing storys about interesting ships far away from the „big history“ we all think we know about. 

Thanks a lot  for this interesting lesson about a part of history. 

Dealing with books about british steam colliers - I have to get some practice o start a big scratch project at all - I understand your project very well. Theres still a plenty of models to be build. Aren't there thousands of wrecks all around the coastline - fourmasted saltpeter fullships, brigs and brigantines to sunken ketches or market schooners?

 

The New Bedford Whalebote is a honorable following project - when ready we are aware of your adding the 1:16 fitting threemasted whaling ship WANDERER* of New Bedford to the whalingboat... 😉

 

*there are ready drawn and printed plans avaible on the internet - you would just have to enlarge them a bit.

Hello Larry, please don't forget to turn the showing case from time to time around. This due to the fading of the colours by the sunlight. I know white and black are no colours but beige and anthrazit will be then.

Great job! I visit the HWM whenever I take my walks at Higgins and have always thought the town of Scarborough should have had someone build a model made of her. I'm glad that at least somebody took it upon themselves to do so. Do you know and could you please tell tell me which way is the wreck of the HWM facing? I would assume the bow would be facing the ocean but there is so little of her visable it is hard to tell.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
