18th Century Armed Longboat by CurtisF - Model Shipways - Scale 1:24 - Small

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Armed Longboat group Curtis! Looks like you're off to a great start, your fairing looks great! If you don't mind constructive criticism, you might want to recheck frames F, C, 1,5, and 7. From the last picture they look like they are not level with the rest of the frames. You might consider repositioning them before you start planking, these frames will cause you a lot of grief later in the build. If you used CA, they should be easy to break free and straighten out. I'm subscribing to your build and looking forward to watching your progress!

Welcome Curtis to the group building the 18th Century Armed Longboat.  I hope your build goes well and if you have any questions, there are several of us in the process of building this boat.  There have been a number of surprises found by the group members which you might want to read about in member logs.  Paul

Thanks for the warm welcome. I have been reading some of the build logs which should make this build a bit easier. I removed the strongback yesterday to fix the frames as Arthur Wayne suggested and lo and behold frames 5 and 7 straightened out. After I fix the others I think I'll go with supports like he used.

After killing a forest of trees I'm finally done with the planking. It got a bit easier as I went along. I still have a lot to learn as you can see by the wood filler. I planned on painting the hull anyway so I don't mind that it's not perfect. A lot of sanding still left to be done but that's the fun part. I get to take out my frustrations with a sanding block. Any tips and comments would be greatly appreciated.

Although they are not the best pictures, there are some photos of the bow and stern in my build log that might be helpful.

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.
