    Bluenose II Build (Artesania Latina) 1:75 by Nomad

    This is my very first ship modelling endeavour, or my first modelling endeavour of any nature really. I ordered the Bluenose II from Artesania Latina as a starting point and it already feels that I'm punching well above my weight. Nonetheless, I was encouraged by other build logs on this forum...

    Bluenose 1/72 POF

    It always starts somewhere... For me it started with the frames. Glued and beveled the first 10 frames and placed them in the jig, as a holder. The jig was screwed down to a piece of plywood, to prevent warping. The plywood will be removed later for access.

    I have never worked with wood before, and this is my first time. Started with the beginning of the keel I followed Heinrich's instructions and followed Peter's construction method, for assembling the keel On a glass plate and with an iron ruler After light sanding it already looks a lot...

    YQ Bluenose— TomV

    This is the first build log I have done. Since I’m a newcomer to POF kits, and since so many others have set out their techniques in such great detail already, the plan here is to post my progress accompanied by questions as they arise. I appreciate everyone’s help as I move ahead with this...

    Bluenose build - DaveFx35

    Well I finally decided to do my first build log. Normally I would just lurk in the background and watch the great work by others. I've always been reluctant to expose my mistakes publicly, but since others have shown the courage to do so, here it goes. I started putting the jig together. I...

    YUANQING BLUENOSE - Don Robinson

    Here is the start of my Bluenose build. Unlike others I cannot wait to start especially since I just started the HMS Ontario which will take months to complete. I have decided I will try and dedicate one day a week to the Bluenose and see how that works, at that rate I should always remain...
  13. Peter Voogt


    Although I do not intend to start the construction of the Bluenose immediately when I have the kit , I am already starting with this building report. Because the beginning of the kit starts at the factory and with his journey to my house. And that trip I came face to face through these messages...

    With so much being said about the YuanQing Bluenose and with the tremendous response the kit has caused on SOS - and other forums - the time has come to start the actual building of the kit. I am not going to say anything more about the Kit Review - it available on the Bluenose Group Build and...

    I will attempt to leave the dock and start a log while probably tacking and luffing along the winding way as I find out how to create one. Last three show the difference between the lines from the plan on the keel and the bottom of the aft bulkheads (high). Then the plan lines at bulkheads C &...

    Bluenose - Model Shipways - by David Lester

    Good Morning, Here is the beginning of my build log for my Model Shipways Bluenose. I am finding some interesting things to consider for this model and a few decisions to be made with respect to its detailing. First- good references are hard to come by and it's not always easy to make out...

    Canadian Bluenose Schooner - Build Log (Model Shipways)

    I'm new to model ship building and am starting with the Model Shipways Bluenose and am using Bob Hunt's practicum. Good thing too because the instructions with the kit assume I know a whole lot more than I do. Yesterday I wrapped up chapter one of the practicum. So now I have a rough hull ready...
