Kenway Posted January 26, 2014 Share #1 Posted January 26, 2014 (edited) Hi,a my name is Adrian and i come from Germany. While playing AC4 Black Flag recently my interest for sailships was (re)awakened. Being in the hobby for at least 25 Years i have practically all the tools i need, including but no limited to, a cnc mill. This is my first ship, though. I have been into planes all these years, but my dad built some nice ships. I remember him spending a whole evening building 2 cannons or carving figures for the transom over weeks. So, for the start i ordered this little ship. (I ordered the Virginia 1819 2 days after beginning with it, this will be my next build log after this is completed). Today i completed the first planking of the hull. It was my first time doing this, but it turned out quite well. Virginia will be the next challenge, this one i want to build with more patience. I wound some thread around the jaws, maybe that's not historically accurate, but i looks definitely better than just glued together. For attaching the bowsprit to the main mast, i remembered a knot from my time at the THW (a german agency for disaster control). Again, maybe not historically correct, but good looking. Thats all for today, see you. Adrian Edited January 26, 2014 by Kenway Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
