  1. This is going to be interesting to follow. Looking forward to see the progress you make on this build. Iain
  2. Nigel, If you want them then they are yours. Don't worry about the shipping cost. Email me your address and I'll get them in the post. Iain
  3. Hi, I am not going to build these models, but if you would like them then I'll ship them to you for free! All I ask is that you don't sell them (as I could do this myself) and post images of the completed models here. The first person to email me their address gets them. They are Andrea Miniatures The Napoleonic Wars 54mm figures 92nd (Gordon) Highlanders, 1815 -and- Major, 2nd De Ligne, 1809.

  4. The Cape Hatteras Light is a lighthouse located on Hatteras Island in the Outer Banks in the town of Buxton, North Carolina and is part of the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. The Outer Banks are a group of barrier islands on the North Carolina coast that separate the Atlantic Ocean from the coastal sounds and inlets. In 1999, with the sea encroaching, the Cape Hatteras lighthouse had to be moved from its original location at the edge of the ocean to safer ground. Due to erosion of the shore, the lighthouse was just 15 feet (4.6 m) from the water's edge and was in imminent danger. The move wa
  5. Hello, I have just finished building the Artesania Latina revenue cutter Dallas, 1815. During the early 19th century, the American Revenue Marine (Coast Guard) was engaged in a variety of roles, from enforcement of revenue laws to the suppression of slave trading and piracy. The Dallas is typical of those cutters employed by the Revenue Marine at that time. This is my second wooden scale model ship (my first was the Artesania Latina schooner Rhoda Mary, also posted on this website). The stem-piece, keel, stern-post and rudder were of different shades of walnut wood, s
  6. Just added the last items - the anchors. That's a wrap here. I'll post some photos in the ready for review section.
  7. Wow, looking really good. Great progress. Iain
  8. I have just finished installing all of the deck fixtures. This concludes all the work to be done on the deck and hull of the model. I will now move on to the construction of the masts and spars and their eventual rigging. Iain
  9. Thanks for the kind words of encouragement. Before I start with the deck fixtures, I thought I had better attach the hull to the display base and make sure that it is level. There wasn't a display base provided in this kit. Iain
  10. Time for another progress report. I have completed the hull and varnished it (steps 1 through 11). Looking good so far. I said in an earlier post that the stem-piece, keel, stern-post and rudder were of different shades of walnut wood so I stained them. I continued this theme by staining the bulwark. The instructions called for one strip of white wood for the wale but I added a second strip of stained walnut to give it a more dramatic effect of dark-white-dark wood. In addition I planked the transom using stained walnut strips. The eagle, stars and lettering on the transom are after mar
  11. Hmmm... Images didn't load... Let's try again... That's better. Iain
  12. Another update. The outer hull planking is now complete and sanded. Note that the stem-piece, keel, and stern-post are only temporarily tacked in. These pieces and the rudder were of different shades of walnut wood, so I stained them to make them all look the same. The contrast in color should look good. https://www.flickr.com/photos/167184123@N04/47947318811/in/dateposted-public/ In addition the deck planking is also complete. I used black rigging thread to simulate the caulking between the planks. https://www.flickr.com/photos/167184123@N04/47947274612/in/dateposte
  13. Nice work Jase. I am watching this with great interest as I am currently building the AL revenue cutter Dallas. Nice work
