OH..she will fit...she has 3" clearance in front and back...…..3" on top and 2" per side. She'll slip right in nicely.This will be a wonderful place for her - I am crossing the fingers, that she will fit in completely (with all masts and yards)
Webb's *Challenge* or McKay's *Champion of the Seas*. The *Challenge* has a very interesting history...she never amounted to much under her cautious captains.... though her owners had great hopes.will blow up challenge plans to 1/48 along with champion of the seas
Thanks so very much. I experimented with paper sails when I put them on my 1/96 Ferreira. Once the sail is cut, paneled and clue's are added a simple light coat of paint holds them in roughly the position you want...until you mount them.Dude, your sails are TOP NOTCH!!! Most of us won't even attempt sails.. much less on a clipper!! How bold!!!
Thanks Jim. Paper holds its form quite well and is easily painted to mimic weathered sails. Once painted it is a simple task to install the bunt lines and then add the reef points to the belly bands. My technique, mounts the sails while the mast is off the model...allowing for a much easier way to do the install and add the details. Paper is near scale and is quite stable.Absolutely beautiful. Sails are the hardest part - I think - and to do them out of paper - simply brilliant.
Randy....I began one over on MSW with the building of her deck...while I was in contact with Steve Priskie...the model shipwright who discovered her wonderful existence and history in Coos Bay Oregon. He was to provide me with hand drawings of her hull, but has since had a run of family issues and I have not talked to him for some time. Needless to say, the build came to a sudden halt. I hope to rekindle our conversations and one day pick up where I left off on the Western Shore. Her history is so amazing.have you started posting build of western shore ?
Many Thanks also for the video (for everybody it is working after the click !!, although it is written "Unavailable")
