Hiya Kevin, with the skills you've shown so far the davits shouldn't give you too much of a problem.
Hope they go well anyway  :-)

That's very impressive - thanks for sharing  :-))


I've often wondered whether I could have a go at a man-of-war.... or maybe a picket boat or similar. Hmm.... Wonder if something may appear at Christmas  %)

Your model is going to be stunning when completed.  Almost makes me want to buy the kit and give it a go.  Are you going to add sails?

Morning Dennis,


Intentions are for all sails and hand made rope, but will be using crappy kit blocks, although the ones i just bought are far better than the ones supplied in this kit
i need over 400 of them and did not want to pay nearly 30 pence each
i am following another build and looks like this

Nice, Kevin.... I have done sails like that using "silkspan", wife did the sewing, aged sails with wood stain, etc.  As for blocks, I do understand, the good ones are very expensive.  Kit supplied wood blocks can be "softened" or edge rounded by making a small drum sander out of a tin can, using a drill motor with find sandpaper and lightly tumbling the blocks to "round" the edges.  Or, you can make your own of course.  A mixture of furled and unfurled sails helps, as a full suite of sails  does hide a ton of detail in the rigging, etc.  Choices, choices... no matter which way you go, your model will be and is already, a stunner.  thanks for sharing the build.   I did build one clipper ship model, Makay's "Flying Cloud".... took me 3 and a half years. A challenge.  Cheers :-))   Dennis

Good evening @dlancast
thank you for the compliments
i now have a decent rigging plan hence the pin rails have increased from the kit 7 belaying pins to 19 or 20
not sure on the material for the sails, i will experiment over the next month or so, paper seams to be an option
losing detail is always going to be an issue with about 30 sails
biggest issue i face meanwhile is making my own rope in upto 8+ different sizes and then what size to put where

good evening everyone
over the last week i have been ensuring everything fits and works as it is meant to,ie that most of the brackets and blocks etc will be in the right place
so yesterday i salvaged the chains, painted them and set them in place, they look ok to me, time will tell if they are actually where they need to be
over the next week i am going to plan the new display area in the garage and learn to use the Domanoff ropewalk

good evening everyone

i have two weeks left before we possibly have visitors, and all my big builds are taking to much room in the house

the garage used to be the mancave, but once we got the dog, it was better i moved into the conservatory, so the garage is going to be into the display area, the wood arrives tomorrow, and a large cabinet 2.3m x 1m x height is planned

cabinets moved around and top cut down in size

IMG_0010.thumb.JPG.142469830cded6d907f8215975364002.JPG

as for the build i am making progress albeit very slowthis morning i made up 6 lengths of rope in two different sizes on the ropewalk, some soldering and shaping some blocks, i wish i knew the names of some of the lines i am putting in but the dropbox info i have is in Geman and all goobygook to me[size=78%]

As always, fantastic work sir.  Sure do know about running out of space thing.  After much consideration, I have decided to donate my collection of WW2 aircraft carriers (U.S.) to a nearby Naval Base.  They have responded to my offer and the one handling such things came by last week to view the models and was very impressed.   He said the process has to go through many depts., so it will take a long time before anything happens.  If it does, it will do this old Navy Vet's heart good to know that my models will be viewed and appreciated.  I am always curious what folks do with their models in later years.  They are works of art in my humble opinion.  Built on!  Cheers  ;)  Dennis

my builds are not good enough to sell or give away IMHO but i enjoy what i do and they need somewhere better, the new cabinet will take three or four of them which will be a great help
