Looking for next project


Recommended Posts

Looking for my next project and would appreciate suggestions.

I completed Model Shipways Bluenose II last year and have been working on MSW Pride of Baltimore and I'm into rigging and expect completion in q few weeks. (With Covid/stay at home I'm putting in 3-5 hours a day).

I think I'm ready for something more challenging for my next ship.

I love the lines of the schooners and don't really care for fancy "ornamental" looking ships. The 1:64 was perfect for my fingers and eyesight so I want to stay with large scale. Both of my builds are plank on bulkhead and I like that but may be ready for plank on frame if its a really nice ship.  I'm not an engineer and need good plans and instructions.

Please make any suggestions you can and thank you for your time.

At one time, Bluejacket, I think, produced a true plank on frame kit for the Schooner Yacht America, and one of the 1850 era US Revenue Cutters.  I don’t know if either of these are still available.



Yes, both kits are readily available. True plank-on frames.
