HMS Pegasus by realworkingsailor - Victory Models

Recommended Posts

Well... this might take some doing... Although it's a shame to be starting all over again, at least the platform is still here. I don't remember a thing I wrote over the last 11 months or so, but I have all my photos. I'll cherry pick the best that illustrate my progress, avoinding the pointless ones....(I hope :P;)


So this first post should go from the completion of the frame to the completion of the first planking.


I'll keep the blah-blah short so if there are any questiong, just let me know...

Part Six.. completion of the head timbers and fo'c'sle deck fittings. Installing the canons under the quarterdeck as well as the deck beams, followed closely by the quarter deck. Intallation of the rudder and tiller, more canons in the waist (fully rigged this time) and the figure head.

Hello Andy,

Never mind you don't remember what you wrote.


Pictures often say more than words.


Take care,



Thanks Anja ;)


I would be here for many more hours if I tried to put up every single photo I've taken. Nothing will ever do justice to what has been lost, but just the same, we're all rebuilding together :)


Hope to see some photos of your build soon too.

Sorry Andy,


Just deleted my post and wanted to repost it after you had finished uploading your pictures. But you quoted me, so I won't. Hope to get my buildlog and pictures up and running on sunday.


Sjors is keeping our PC busy with his buildlogs. And it's a real pain to do this on my IPad.


Thanks for posting all your pictures and take care,

Thanks everyone! :D


Since I had all my photos at hand, it really didn't take very long to sort through and post the best ones (the ones I considered, anyway). If anyone has any questions regarding the build, or photos I didn't post, or whatever, don't hesitate to ask.


The good news is that I should be posting a proper update tomorrow, which means I'll be going forward again.

I'm glad to see you and your Pegasus back on board. I was thinking of a new idea for all of us since we all have so many pictures of our builds. When we do this in the future we should be always taking a progress shot from the same side and angle and then when it has completed we can compile the pictures into a flip book and the ship will 'magically' create itself.  :D I think I read earlier that this build log was recreated using your Iphone? That's more tedious than any treenailing job I've ever seen.

So many new people following along.... :)


Hamilton.. Who were you before the crash? I'm seeing a few people modifying their usernames (just to add to the confusion :P)


Joe and Adam: thanks so much for stopping by again.


Sjors.. Call it Dutch stubbornness if you want... Far be it for a little thing like a server crash to keep us from forging on ahead


Patrick: Egad no:P I was just referring to Anja's remark about following along with her IPad...


Sherry, thanks for stopping by. I quietly followed your Mayflower log, you did a good job on her. What part of the province do you hail from?


Anyway, I'll be taking some photos of my progress shortly, and will have a proper update soon after.

And here we go... ;)


I don't know if this is the first log to officially post progress, as opposed to just playing catch up...  (not that it really matters) I think the biggest hit for me was the loss all the old logs of completed builds. There was so much information out there to enable me to double or triple check how certain pieces went together. Up until this morning I felt like I was about forge on into the dark alone.. :mellow: ..but I see a couple other recovered Pegasus/Fly logs... which is not altogether discomforting. ;)


To keep it short, a brief summary of everything completed since the last photos. I've installed the gallows and pump handles. (I also made sure to install the blocks and eyebolts around the base of the main mast before hand so I don't have to dive in there later. Started work on the stantions around the ladders. Also have finished the gunport lids and channels. And while I was waiting for the paint to dry, I stropped all the deadeyes (just for something tedious to do :P).


I figure I'll work on the snaggly stuff from the inside out. So I have to go after a few eyebolts and get them installed, before I finish off the hammock cranes.


The only unfortunate thing (as far as model building goes) is my company is sending me on a training course next week, in Newfoundland... and because of crappy weather, I'll be leaving tonight (ahead of the winter storm). And then the week after is the winter meeting in Montreal. I'll be around on occaision, but building will be on hold ... again... :rolleyes:

Hi Andy



Great to be and have you back again.


Good Idea, that fast motion log.


It is too bad about all those lost information which came forward during all the detailed discussions. Well, again, John Lennon must have had a  presentiment: …  it’ll be (just like) starting over…

Newfoundland in winter for training sessions… I still like  m y  company better – although I had some training sessions in Kangerlussuaq, Greenland, but those were only in the simulator and that was standing in Zurich!

Take care!

I take it you have been there? :P


I'm not the only one with the "speed log" thing going, at least it's getting things up and running again....even if it is a bit chaotic on the boards right now. I'm sure that when we've all got ourselves back to where we were, things will settle down.... I hope ;)
