Biloxi lugger Captain Roy 1948 by russ - 1/48 scale - POB - Finished

Recommended Posts

Very nice paint finish so far Russ, you must have prepared that hull very nicely to achieve it.  I can also recommend the frogtape, but I have also had good results with Tamiya tape.

 

cheers

Michael:

Thanks. These luggers were often very attractive hulls.

 

The entrance at the fore foot is often straight and is created by the use of the nearly upright stem. That results in the body sections that are slightly concave below the water line near the bow. Most of the boats had a pleasing sheer line as well. This is one of the post WWII boats that tended to be longer for their breadth and somewhat deeper in the hold for use a little further offshore. The 1930s boats were also pretty, but they tended to be smaller, with more belly, and a bit more shallow. All things said, I prefer the longer deeper hulls.

catching up Russ......a good bit of progress ;)    I've had the same problem with tape.......I use two different types myself.   she looks very nice though.....the colors work very well together.  if your ship has it,  you could do a waterline stripe,  and make short work of it.   even though all it boils down to really,  is just some minor touch ups.   the hatch looks great!  :) 

another problem I run into,  is when I leave the tape on too long,  the paint will create a raised line that I have to lightly sand off,  or hand rub,  using a soft cotton cloth.   wonderful progress.......well done

Thanks. I think the tape was fine. I just did not get it down well. That is on me. The raised line usually comes from having a lot of layers build up against the tape line. That is my experience with it. I usually hand rub until it is gone.

Hello again. It has been quite a while since I posted any progress. I just wanted folks to know the project is still in progress. There has been a lot of daily life stuff getting in the way. Spring cleaning, Spring planting, some interior renovations, etc. It all takes time, energy, and focus and all of that gets diverted from the shop into these other projects. 

 

Now that things are starting to get back to normal, I am also working on another scratch built project. I am, from this point on, most likely going to be building in POF. The new model is a Biloxi schooner, but it is being built plank on frame. I might post something on that as time goes on. Thanks for bearing with me despite the delays.

Thanks, but I have not stopped completely. It needs to be on its way out the door sooner rather than later. :)

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.
