    Lovely boats, I spend 1985 as a paid hand on Velsheda, K7. Wonderful, but slightly terrifying boat to sail. Love the interest in the Js, building a a scale one is on the long term project list.

    2 months ago by philcaretaker ( Captain)

    Having frequently sailed up the Chesapeake Bay to Baltimore many years ago, this little beauty holds many memories.
    The skipjack is a traditional fishing boat used on the Chesapeake Bay for oyster dredging.
    This model was filmed on my recent visit to Portsmouth, it was great to meet with its owner Peter, who is a member of the Hayling Island Model Boat Club.

    ๐Ÿ“ท "Whaleback" Freighter
    2 months ago by LewZ ( Warrant Officer)
    Flag
    I know this is not one of my boats, but belongs to one of our club members. It is a 1/48 scale model of a "whaleback" freighter. The real George Washburn was built in 1885 had a length of 320 feet. What is unique about this is it had a almost tubular cross-section hull. Many times I heard visitors call it a submarine.

    Jim's model includes horn sound, lights, homemade smoke generator and a ballast fill/empty system to reduce transportation weight.

    I though some of you might enjoy this wonderful scratch built model!

    Ron, I will not go into too much detail on Jim. He is retired, in his early 70's, and has building models since before I met him about 12 years ago. He doesn't bother with computers too much but enjoys his Canon digital cameras.

    The story of building the model of the "Whaleback" seems to stem from where is lived many years ago up in the great lakes area of the U.S.

    Jim is a laid-back person and deeply interested in building his models. Most of them are 1/48 scale, but in recent years he took a turn and started going after some complicated kits, some out of production for many years, like Sterling kits he found on Ebay. Other recent builds include some WWII battleships, plastic models that are motorized for RC.

    One unique thing about Jim is all (I believe) of his models involve gear reduction between the motor(s) and shaft(s). He hand makes small parts where many people will avoid the small details. Here is a video of one of his other models, the City Of Buffalo:

    I can never do that do that. How do you trim the balsa and then rub it down to shape. I have picked up a 48" Perkasa Hull from a Boot Fair and the Balsa nose end blocks are a total mess. I have got to try to put them right. I think they are the sort of mess I would make.In the past the thing I usually do is recut a new hull base and side skins in ply and extend them and not use a balsa block. I am not too sure how I would get around the bow end on this hull with ply but I would give it a good try but but wether it would have the correct shape or not is another thing.
