Off to a good start, bent keel and ribs are a nightmare sorting them out and getting it straight takes some work which shows a great craftsman to go past it and carry on.

Well done mate.

Packet ~ month two

Took me quite a while to decide what shape I wanted the stern. The instructions show it very 'up-swept' following the shape of the vertical keel while some other modelers had it very different. I decided to follow the instructions as best I could.

Packet ~ month three

I took my time shaping the ribs and bow & stern stiffeners, then went about plating the bridgedeck. We had a big family event (wedding) so I wasn't getting the time I wanted to invest. late one night I quickly plated the center 2/3s and called it a night. 0600 I woke up with the realization I had covered the hole! :( without marking the position. I incised the plating from below and went about squaring the hole ~ miscalculated and cut a plank too far on the port side. Slapping myself upside the head I promised myself I would slow down again.
I did not like the pencil on the edges so I used a 'Minwax wood finish stain marker'. Very pleased with 95% of the result. I think a couple pices of the basswood may have been more porous / absorbent and it bled just a bit, not too bad.
I shaped and sanded until I was reasonably satisfied. I look at other modelers and their craftsmanship and it just reinforces the realization...... I have so much to learn and so many skills that need to be forged before I will ever be able to make something to be proud of.

Packet ~ month four

So hi guys ~ Getting a little frustrated trying to figure all these parts ~ with no parts list and no indications as to what a "number 31" is ?? I opened the packet only to find SEVEN different sizes / types of wood.
I'm pretty sure one of them is the one I'm supposed to be using. I think the square piece is probably the 'support beam #45 in month 7. Where the waterways go from 8mm to 10mm with a 2mm overhang is unclear so I looked ahead and in month 7 there is a picture that shows nothing like what I interpret it to say.
So it's liable to be a while before I figure things out and post more photos.

have fun, jess

Jess

That is all coming along very nicely.

I keep reading good things about that minwax product and from various builds i have read up on it looks a great finishing.staining product.

Having searched over here in the uk it does not seem to be available with just internet site i found listing it but must be coming direct from the USA looking at the postage.

Not having a parts list must be very trying. As a suggestion have you tried emailing artisania direct as they are usually very good at supplying info like this via an emailed pdf file. Might be worth a try.

There is a "contact us" link in the following

https://www.artesanialat.../en/104-model-ship-kits

Hope it all continues well.

Hey Jess,

Your doing a great job. I plan on doing this one myself as well as the USS Constitution. Like you, I am new to the wooden ship builds. I am building the Scottish Maid. My build is here: http://forum.us.model-sp...spx?g=posts&t=23415 if you want to take a peek. I know the trials and tribulations you are going through also. I decided on this model to test my skills at ship building and see if I can move on to something more complicated. So far, I am very happy with my progress and the guys here are great with helping out and answering questions. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to seeing the rest of your build.
Thanks for looking,
Ron

Thank you Tony and Alan...

Tony, funny I was just reading every word of your USS Constitution build as you were reading mine, lol. When I finish pulling out all of my hair I'll try that link, thank you.

Alan, if there's a parts list out there it may be of use to many less skillful folks such as myself. I promised myself ~ No Whining! ~ my tongue is getting really sore, lol.

Thank you Ron,

As I said, I used a simple pen on the edges of my planking, I cannot even think about the tissue paper as you and Tony have used. Some very fine work there.

have fun, jess

Hi guys

First off I'd REALLY like to thank all those that have been so encouraging. You folks are truly first rate. I apologize that I haven't addressed everyone's post. I'm just old and easily distracted, lol.

Alan, No, I had not followed that link Tony had given.. I had just walked away from the build for a couple days. So having a clear head, I logged in today, saw your post, then went to Tony's post. That link ( https://www.artesanialat.../en/104-model-ship-kits ) took me out of Model Space, to the Artesania site where I found this.....

https://www.artesanialat...y-sark-tea-clipper.html

It has the complete 90 page instruction booklet, including 18 pages of "parts list" in 7 languages. Also there is the video describing the boxed kit I believed I was ordering.

I guess I should have known to check the manufacturers web site ~ All in my learning curve. If not for you wonderful people I would probably still be trying to glue the first pieces together ~ Thank You All !

have fun, jess

oh .. also on that page is the caution

MORE DETAILS

Warning: Last items in stock!


I don't know for sure but that may mean they are going to stop producing this model ???? That would be a real shame. I love the lines of this ship and the reflection of the courageous sailors that braved the oceans in her.

have fun, jess

The parts list and full instructions are here for the Model Space Cutty Sark: https://www.model-space....ark-full-kit-model.html Under the downloads tab. I am not sure if the AL parts list is the same as the Model Space one...
Thanks for looking,
Ron

Thank you Alan.. You are superman !

Hey Ron... Sry, In error I had stated the link provided was from you. It was the link from Tony (now edited).
I had been using the downloads you mention exclusively. They are not the same. The Model Space downloads are an abbreviated version that do not contain the parts list. What I was totally unsure of, now took me less than 5 seconds ~ with full confidence ~ so nice. Anyone building this model really needs the complete instructions with parts list.

So now I have found the instructions ~~~~~ looking for the skills to use them, Laugh

Thank you everyone.

have fun, jess

Jess

Glad you managed to get yourself sorted with the parts list. I think i would have been totally lost looking at that picture you pisted with all those parts as they all looked so similar.

Hope the rest of your build goes along without any further issues for you.

That's perfect Alan ~ Thank you very much. I'm sure there will be many folks in the future that won't have a clue how much they owe you.

Tony ~ ikr... What really had me immobilized was that if I used the wrong ones then I messed it up ~ AND messed up what I needed in the future. Thank you.

I'm running out of excuses here guys!! Huh

have fun, jess
