tazam0827 Posted July 15, 2019 Report Share Posted July 15, 2019 (edited) Hi everyone. I've been a member on this site for a few years but rarely post. This build log is going to be for only my second ship, the Mirny. I built my first ship three years ago with moderate success. So of course, emboldened with beginners hubris, my second build was way way way too ambitious. This is a tale of a shipwreck, a salvage, and a relaunch. I know how the story ends because I was too afraid to write this log until it was complete, in case it was a total flop. I found these drawing on the internet, printed them out and scaled them with a set of calipers. I think the scale ended up being about 1:480. The hull ended up being about 75mm long and 18mm wide, and 210mm from the waterline to the top of the main mast. I carved the hull out of a small piece of bass wood, mostly free hand. I think I went through 3 or 4 blocks before I got a shape I was happy with Edited July 19, 2019 by tazam0827 rearranged text and pictures Onni, Bernard Kelly, John Zuch and 3 others 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
