  1. Looking for information on Binnacle Products (Rear 11 Twyning Road, Birmingham 30 "Binnacle" Ship Kit #7 Fairmile 'D' Thanks, all. Russell
  2. SS Xantho, Western Australia's First Steamship. St George's Terrace is the main business thoroughfare of Perth and every 20 metres or so along its length, embedded in the footpath is a plaque similar to the one shown below. Each plaque commemorates a year in the history of Western Australia and the most eminent person in the state that year. There are some names you may have heard of; Allan Bond, Dennis Lillee and Bob Hawke for example - I note that Rolf Harris's one has recently disappeared!? But most of the names are those of administrators, academics or business
  3. Hogwart's Express - A Baby Bandsaw Build 'A scarlet steam engine was waiting next to a platform packed with people. A sign overhead said Hogwarts Express, 11 o'clock. Harry looked behind him and saw a wrought-iron archway where the ticket box had been, with the words Platform Nine and Three-Quarters on it. He had done it' So wrote J.K. Rowling in chapter six of her 1997 novel Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone - the first in a series of novels that some of you may have heard of. My two daughters have definitely heard of these books - and have seen
  4. Hello, I like to show my build of the St.Gabriel here too and hopefully it is for interesst for you History: St. Gabriel from 1728 Vitus Jonassen Bering was a Danish naval officer in Russian services. He led the First Kamchatka Expedition from 1728 to 1730 and from 1733 the Second Kamchatka Expedition, on which he died. Among other things, "Columbus the Tsar" proved that Asia and North America are not connected. In 1728 Bering had the 18-metre long sloop St. Gabriel built. From July 1728, he used this ship to explore the coast of Siberia in a norther
  5. Here is my latest creation, a 1/20(ish) Ferrari 330 P4. All carved from one solid piece of beech, with a few walnut accents and finished with whatever leftover varnish I had in the garage. Took about 2 months
  6. Happy Birthday Royal Air Force Today is the 102nd Anniversary of the formation of the Royal Air Force. Two years ago - to the day - I started building this model of an Avro 504K. My intention was to mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force's formation by building an example of an important aircraft that had served in the RNAS, RFC, RAF and many of the commonwealth air arms that followed. It's just as well I remembered the commonwealth because it turns out there's a very good chance that in 1918 this particular airframe was actually in service with the AFC (Australian Flying Corps
  7. Happy Birthday Royal Air Force Today is the 100th Anniversary of the formation of the Royal Air Force. If you did not know that already you are probably on the wrong website. Some time ago I decided that I wanted to mark this occasion by starting a new project on this date and have of late spent much time thinking about what the subject should be. Naturally enough, Spitfires, Hurricanes, Lancasters and myriad of famous post-war types all came to mind, but these are well-covered subjects and so I dwelled on the matter a bit deeper... What about something that was in ser
  8. Kick-off Hello, I have spent the last 6 months working on a scratchbuilt Mig 15 and that project is now drawing to a close. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235012524-mig-15-scratchbuild/& Consequently, I've been thinking a lot about my next project and after much deliberation, including considering a very, very wide range of possible subjects, I have decided to try something completely different to my usual aviation related fare. I am going to try to build His Majesty's Australian Submarine AE2. This is a project that I h
  9. Hi folks. Here is a simple carving of a 1957 Ferrari Testa Rossa 250 that has kept me busy for the past couple of months. Entirely scratch built and hand carved from mahogany to 1:20th ish scale. Hope you like it. Merry xmas!
  10. HMAS AE2 - World War One Submarine. About a decade ago I started idly dreaming about scratchbuilding a model of the famous Australian World War One submarine AE2. One year ago, almost to the day, a generous fellow modeller lent me a set of his plans for an E-class submarine. 11 months ago work started. Three days ago I finished the model. After what seems like a very long time and a great deal of fun, here's the result. Please enjoy! Those of you that have been following the W
  11. Howdy forumites, its been a long time since I rock'n'rolled, but never mind that now. Today, may I present for your consideration a carved wooden series 1 Jaguar E-Type at roughly 1/24 ish scale. Entirely scratch built out of panga panga and basswood, with a little bit of plastic and brass. Took about 6 weeks with numerous pauses while work kept me away from my toys. I Don't think I'll use panga panga again, it is a bit of a pig to carve as it is splintery, and the heavy grain overpowers smaller details. however, it turned out all right, and taught me some more about the joys of whittling
  12. RMS Carpathia In 1912 Harold Thomas Cottam was the RMS Carpathia's wireless operator. Early in the morning of 15th of April, whilst Carpathia was Eastbound in the North Atlantic, he was about to retire to bed following a long but entirely routine shift. Instead of going to bed however, purely on an impulse, he decided to send a courtesy message to Titanic regarding some undelivered commercial messages that he intended to relay on his next shift. Instead of receiving a polite nod of thanks from Titanic - he received this... 'Come at once. We have struck a berg. It's a CQ
  13. RMS Carpathia - 1/500 Scale - Scratchbuilt I present for your viewing pleasure my recently completed model of RMS Carpathia. She is depicted as she may have appeared on the night of the 15 April 1912, the night that she sped to the rescue of the beleaguered survivors of the Titanic disaster. The model is constructed from wood, brass, plastic-sheet and various other bits and pieces. It is completely scratchbuilt except for the lifeboats that are 3D printed. The WIP thread that tracks the process of the construction of the model and the sea-scape can be found here:
  14. Whilst on holiday I thought I'd move completely out of my comfort zone. I've always wanted to build an open launch showing the internal details. Various attempts have come to nought. Looking for something easily transportable this caught my eye Kit sprues? Tis all made from Limewood which means it has minimal straight grain though a trifle soft Firsts up a simple jig to keep it all straight until frames/longitudinals are in place. Commence fitting the frames The idea is the frames are planked and the centre is removed, time will tell . . .
  15. Hello you, and a belated welcome to 2019. Here is a quicky I did in the post Christmas blues, a Mozzie carved from wood and camouflaged with wood stain. Its a bit of a mishmash, its supposed to be the cannon armed fighter, but the cockpit and exhaust blisters are from the MkIV bomber and the Brownings are too high in the nose. Still, it kept me out of the wife's way for a couple of weeks so it's all good. Enjoy.
  16. Here is my 1/20(ish) scratchbuilt carving of a 1956 Aston Martin DBR1. Carved from Lime finished with Danish Oil, with a few plastic and metal bits and pieces for the wheels. Took about a month, with a week of that waiting for the oil to dry. Thanks for looking
  17. Hi folks Another day, another model This months exercise in sawdust making is the recreation of the best looking car ever to have been built (you may disagree, but you are wrong*) the Aston Martin DBR1 Le Mans winner from 1956. I remember as a young boy in the 70s being read bedtime stories by my Grandma from a book written in the jingoistic style of the 50s of the exploits of a plucky British driver in a car that was clearly a DBR1 overcoming the dastardly exploits of Baron Otto von Stereotype in a 300SLR and Count Lucio di Spicable in a 250TR, which meant that for me a Le Mans car was
  18. Hi all Haven't posted much in the way of build photos as this one just didn't seem to appeal to many. It may still be that way but it is what it is and I enjoy doing them. So, this is a hand carved Ferrari (the eighth I've done of this model), but this time I wanted to hack it from nice woods ... mahogany and padauk ... with some light coloured veneer, then give everything a highly polished lacquer finish. Decided to do a matching pattern on the base just for fun. Not highly detailed as I like my wooden models mostly to emphasize and concentrate on the
  19. First time caller, long time listener... Hi all. Here's my first post and first wood build. Log here: https://imgur.com/a/qXTRs TY you for looking.
  20. 1/32 Scratch-built Sopwith Camel in mainly basswood with oak prop, walnut axle, gun barrel cooling jackets and cylinders and bamboo struts plus brass odds 'n' sods, finished with 0.1mm rigging thread. As with my earlier Spitfire the brief from Controller, Home Forces was that it could be a wooden sculpture rather thaan a painted awar machine, so it is left just varnished. About a month start to finish, but actually more like two solid weekends of doing with lots of gaps in between. Not sure what's next!
  21. Welcome omce again my friends to the show that never ends. This months lesson in wood fondling will be a demo of how to find a camel in a plank. Specifically, uncovering the sopwith camel that is hiding inside the offcuts of my spitfire build. Step 1, plans and bits Part B, Hercule Poirot's moustache: iii, carefully measure the fuselage Four, get distracted during planing and take too much off, plus the top of my finger. Grrrrr More anon when the bleeding stops. Nick
  22. Here's my own interpretation of an early mark spitfire, notionally a mk1 and notionally 1/32 scale hand carved from basswood, walnut and oak and varnish finished. I did it as an experiment to give me something to do in my spare time, and to see if I could make something I'd be happy to put on display. There is rather a lot of artistic license being used e.g. I chickened out of gouging out the wheel wells or cutting control surfaces, so it is more spitfiresque than a finescale reproduction, however it was fun, satisfying and I'm happy with the result. Thank you all for your interest
  23. Hello I am new to this site and this is my first post. I used to scratchbuild model aeroplanes when I was a kid. After many years of building 1/48 kitsets I decided to have another go a scratchbuilding the old fashioned way, just for fun. I am in the process of building a 1/48 scale Mig 15 bis from scratch (with one or two aftermarket parts to speed things up a bit). I hope you enjoy following along. I'm hoping to have the project finished early 2017. Here are the plans I am using - graciously provided by a well-known aviation modelling magazine.
  24. Hello, I have recently completed my scratchbuild of a 1/48 Korean War era Mig15 bis. The model is mostly constructed from wood and is nearly 100% scratchbuilt with only the cockpit interior and pilot not scratch built. The complete build log is contained in this thread. http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235012524-mig-15-scratchbuild/ I started at the end of November 2016 and have finished in May 2017 so It's been about a six month long project. I am reasonably happy with the outcome, have greatly enjoyed the exercise, and owe much thanks to
  25. In case anyone has been wondering where I was, I have been trying to fill my workshop to the ceiling with wood shavings, none of yer plastic nonsense. I have also come over a bit nautical after my Arizona exploits. Anyhoo, here's what I've been doing:- Must be going mad.Manual says 3000 hours to build. Reckon I'm half done. Thanks for looking. Nick
