phebe Posted May 4, 2014 Share #1 Posted May 4, 2014 (edited) I’ve decided to start this build log even though it might take me a long long time to complete. This is the Pride of Baltimore from MS, but I am substituting some fine woods I’ve gotten from Hobby Mill and will be adding more guns to the deck. I’d like to make a ship that could have been an 1812 privateer. As this ship is just so beautiful under sail – I intend to make sails and also experiment with coppering the hull with a green patina. I discovered early on that I made a big mistake with the hull. A few of the bulkheads were not symmetrical and I didn’t catch it until I started to plank. I almost ditched the project- anyone who knows ships or modeling would catch it, but I figured that most people wouldn’t so I’m continuing. I missed figuring out how to plank the counter properly also, but will keep it going. This is such an addictive hobby and it is so much fun to be a part of MSW. I have so much to learn from you all!
