Re: Admiralty style reference books

Ok, thanks for all the replies. This really helps me get going. Now, I downloaded Gene Bodnar "Scratch Building A Model Ship" and on page 9 there is a grid. My question is this: Is this grid just an arbitrary grid of lets say .5 inches or 10mm squares ? Its seems as if it is just a simple ...

Re: Panart: San Felipe 1:75 Scale Build Log

Hi Janos, you are 100% correct in all accounts. Eric and others, thanks for the support. I think I am suffering from Artistry Remorse ! It is what it is and I am going to make the best of it. A lot of brass ornamentation will be covering up a lot of this and I am not worried about it too much. The t...

Re: Lindberg's Jolly Roger

Thank you Fright. As it goes, this was my first ship (as a grown adult), and I knew nothing - it was built 14 years ago. My wife when we got married, started working at a local Hobby Lobby and I told her how I used to do this as a kid. So, she told me to pick one out and I bought it. I am still lear...

Re: Panart: San Felipe 1:75 Scale Build Log

. Thanks Popeye and all. I appreciate it. Well, I worked through it and got one side done. Here are some pics. I have not installed the extra Wales parts. I also do not know what color to paint the Wales. The box has them natural, BUT the box art is from other picture. The Box art is not using the ...

Re: Trip to Navy Maritime Museum and USS Constellation

I posted the links in the appropriate area in Photos of Real Ships and also in the Models in Museums. But for redundancy, I am posting them here since I started the original topic here: USSConstellation http://shipsofscale.com/Maryland/USSConstellation/ussconstellation.html Navy Academy Museum http:...

Re: Admiralty style reference books

Yes, this particular "style" that you show here is basically what I am wanting to do. I am wanting to make my own frames with very little planking so that the interior of the ship can be seen. Now, how I get there and what model to pursue is left for another time. I might look up Dave to d...

It will be interesting to see how it turns out with the Gun Ports closed. Your work is beyond my capabilities - very nice workmanship.

Navy Academy Museum, Annapolis, MD

. I visited the Navy Academy Museum in Annapolis, MD while I was visiting wife's family in Sterling, VA. The time was very limited and I did the best I could in taking 251 photos of ship models. I also tried to include the plaque (name) of the ship at the end of each ship(s) photo. I hope you all e...

USS Constellation, Inner Harbor Baltimore, MD

. My trip to Sterling, VA included a trip to see the USS Constellation at the Inner Harbor of Baltimore, MD. One of the workers mentioned that the ship was restored "to the best of their knowledge" and was sure that there were some things that are not that accurate. . collage.jpg . So, th...
