New Bedford Whaleboat by Dr PS - FINISHED - Model Shipways MS2033 - Scale 1:16 - Small

Recommended Posts

I made two waifs using a visible red color.  I painted some “sail” cloth and rolled them onto the poles.
 

I forgot to mention the making of the hatchet in my last post. The waifs and hatchet can be seen in the following pictures. 63018C5D-2E1A-414A-A4D6-78A56FA804BF.thumb.jpeg.09c8fbacbd51ef03a1d141fe3045bff1.jpegF7F3A19B-318E-43CE-9BF1-AB08A7EAAA8C.thumb.jpeg.31aacccd5c3057201f48f9669426005d.jpeg5F4D91F5-1912-4A44-BB43-D323E40EC61A.thumb.jpeg.db04050ecb04dd78bbdb2d2298e54a8f.jpeg
 

The last item in completing the Whaleboat was the sail. I was in a quandary whether to have a raised sail or a wrapped sail as shown on the kit box (see post #1).  I decided on the latter as it will fit my display (to be shown later when completed) as well as the following pictures which I found on the internet (no source was found).EC3AAAF4-EDC3-4DE1-B479-15777D968803.thumb.png.381b26f33db90535a5134ed1a3aa3f0b.png4CD4D45E-A01C-49C3-AF06-A80E510BF3CA.thumb.png.8d42213be1deef1d4488e2abcefe110b.pngC9D6FD77-0748-4200-9F1B-AFFC0FEBED11.thumb.png.2229aed43ca29a5aa989722b90a9259f.png 
 

My finished sail is shown below. 25522133-CE8E-4311-B9E5-83232A8A23ED.thumb.jpeg.15682a29f3a603efc0e6040e3c44aa09.jpeg

I have finally finished the New Bedford Whaleboat. In line with the pictures in my last post, I have mounted my whaleboat  on a whale 🐋 The picture of whalers in a whaleboat on a whale with sail tucked away was excellent inspiration for my final display.84D5C2F2-8DEF-473F-BED5-0A44210FFE4A.thumb.jpeg.8bd17a43f6f2703daa023257343576ff.jpegFA48DFA6-3CF5-4EC9-8801-FFFD665831AF.thumb.jpeg.7a07f05508a5cd872f08920179a2396d.jpeg2CA67B07-6407-4995-A05C-2C3E53D31916.thumb.jpeg.85002980befae7beafae6abf12ca0ec3.jpeg0FA73D11-681C-4CBB-B1C9-C36CA94299C7.thumb.jpeg.c90d8011840fd2b698f91b1b4b4c30e6.jpegCB9EEB92-E49F-49BA-B0C9-5CBD3DE934EB.thumb.jpeg.8e0350f2e0e90f4829b2c90ffe1acbaf.jpeg7D4349A9-F207-47B4-BE37-96442F0C3D07.thumb.jpeg.f8637fb1c3a6e287d34a14ff10b852fe.jpegB5566202-C257-4BA5-9E94-BC2CC0677B2E.thumb.jpeg.b7b0c91d61b9d2cc0568b66fb61ba0a7.jpeg

Thanks for looking and for all your comments. This has been a fun build and one which added more to my skill and confidence bag.  My next project will be Model Shipways Gatling Gun.

Take care in insuring that your whale has actually been properly 'saddle-broke' prior to blindly trusting it to give that beautiful 'whaleboat' a gentle ride! 😲 

"Great Job!"

Beautiful whaleboat, Paul. This was a very inspiring log, thank you for that.

What a great idea to display your boat on the back of a whale!

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.
