Hi all,

Thought I'd post a few pics of models I've built that I still have. This was my first scratch build, a Sheer Vessel of 1815 based on plans from the old Model Shipwright journal. From memory it's 1/48. Built on ply bulkheads, I recall I used Tasmanian Oak for the mast and sheer legs, Queensland Ash I think for the deck. Chainplates, eyebolts and blocks were commercial items.

A fun build of something a bit different.

Hola a todos,

Pensé en publicar algunas fotos de los modelos que he construido y que todavía tengo. Esta fue mi primera construcción desde cero, un Sheer Vessel de 1815 basado en planos del antiguo diario Model Shipwright. De memoria es 1/48. Construido sobre mamparos de capas, recuerdo que usé Tasmanian Oak para el mástil y las patas verticales, Queensland Ash creo que para la cubierta. Las placas de cadena, los cáncamos y los bloques eran artículos comerciales.

Una construcción divertida de algo un poco diferente.
