Recommended Posts

Hi John

i was on the Morgan a year and  a half ago and took some pictures that look a lot like the ones you are posting. Are you sure those pics aren’t mine??  That model looks an awful lot like the real thing.  Hmmmm.  😜😁

 

the elusive finish line is within reach... well at least until you find another detail to clean up. 🤣. It really looks good.

Very interesting process, dressing out a whale at sea. Note the sharks circling as the crew works on the extended planking of the rolling whaling ship. 😬

Built the railing with beading eyelets and 1/16 dowel rod.

13 Months, 628 hours. I have completed my fist Wood Ship Model, the Charles W. Morgan. 
 

Hard to believe it’s actually finished. A little over a year ago I looked this big of box sticks, took a deep breath and committed to the journey. What a fun ride it’s been. 

 

Thanks to MSW and all of the inspirational 👍 and comments a long the way.  Committing to a build log goes a long way toward staying with the project to completion. Not to mention the encouragement of our members. 
 

Time to go finish my Model Shipways Whaleboat. 
 

Cheers 🍻

JOHN!

You made it. The finish line is now behind you. You must be feeling a great sense of accomplishment right now and rightfully so. Time to sit back and enjoy it for a while. :champagne-popping-smiley-emotic

Congratulations. It was a pleasure watching it develop into something really nice.

Thanks your encouragement along the way has been great. Looking forward to watching you complete your Leopard. Plans for the CWM are being packed up for your next build. 
 

Note: I did find something else to add to the Morgan. Flags! She can’t sail without flags! Maybe just the Pendant up top, since she doesn’t have sails. There’s that OCD kicking in again. 😆

I told you... it will never be "finished".  😀  Thank you again for the plans.
