HMS Kingfisher 1770 by Remco - 1/48 - English 14 Gun Sloop - POF


Recommended Posts

Hi, 

There where many times since I started building my Kingfisher that I thought I should start a build log. And today is the day. I've started the kit last november and spend a lot of time since. Not that I have made much progress, but it is not a race and its tremendous fun building. I ra
n in to trouble when I was making the hawse timbers, I did not like how the shape came out. It was time to have a little diversion from frame building and find the courage to make new parts from scratch for the hawse timbers. So I left the path of the instruction and started building the stove, some gratings and the gun trucks. That was a lot of fun. The gun trucks are almost finished and wait for the arrival of replacement cannons from The Lumberyard.

====================================

So that's what was left from my old build log in Google cache. Unfortunately the rest was shot into cyberspace and is now a pleasant memory of 2 years and 7 months of logging the progress of my Kingfisher. And probably the longest story I ever wrote in my whole life as I don't like writing at all. So instead of trying to get everything back I'll put a selection of the pictures I did keep on my laptop up in this post and will go on from there.

Maybe I'll add text along the way but don't want to be kept from modeling to much. Most of the pictures say more than words anyhow.

 

Update:

 

So Dave (Midnight) saved my log previous to MSW’s move from 1.0 to 2.0.

 

He was ever so kind to share these files with me to rebuild my buildlog. Unfortunately I’m not able to convert the PDF’s
back to text to get them back into my buidlog. So instead of typing the lot over again I decided to put the PDF’s on a public share where every body who’s interested can download them from.

 

To make live a little easier I compiled a small index so you now what to expect in each PDF.

All the PDF's can be found here. I know it's a bit of a disappointment not to be able to put the information back into this log but the good news is nothing is lost. Any comments of how its working are welcome.
