This will be my first build log. My name is Dave Myers I am a 64-year-old Elevator Mechanic in the Philadelphia area. This is my second ship model, my first build was a solid hull construction of the USS Constitution. I started this build about 20 years ago. It was in storage for most of the time, but now I am returning to it. I am a slow worker maybe just a few hours a week. I will post pictures of my current progress.

I have learned a lot with this build. There are some mistakes, but sometimes you can learn more that way. For my first planked hull I think I did OK. I thought the hard part was over when I started on the standing rigging. I need to learn how to be more delicate. Finding it difficult with my fat fingers.

Great engineering! I like your machine and the serving it does! Does it create any tensions while serving?
Jimsky, yes. The thread feeds up from under the unit and wraps around the piece that slides along the two wires. Depending on how many times I wrap it will determine how much tension will be on the thread. I have found that one wrap is just about the perfect amount to give just the right amount of tension.

Fantastic ship! Corel models are a bit harder to rig and make the details on because they are usually 1:100 scale. Your victory looks clean. Are you going to try installing sails, or stay with the model's original look without them? Your photos are so clear!

I will go with no sails on this one.
