  • Bob.... the ship looks great!

    what has happened to the plan set they were supposed to have sent me

    You're still dealing with that? Shameful on their part.

    • Bob, If you put this model in the "sea" will it be modeled

      under sail?

      If so hold off on fixing the rudder in place until you get

      a feel for how she handles on whatever point of

      sail you set her too

        What Bill said! It's all going to depend on the wind, waves and so on! Looking good so far, but will need ballast and a watertight hull before going into anything resembling the real pond!

        • Thanks Carl, and yes, I am still battling with Model Expo trying to get the plans sheet, terrible.

          • Bill and Pete, thanks for your comments.

            If I do model the sea, (Not decided yet) it will be something mild. Still thinking about it.

            • BTW, the decision on a model sea is based on SIZE. Adding that detail will greatly increase the overall size of the

              model/diorama, both the model and a needed case. I am getting cramped for space.

              The model painted down to the rub rail, more later.



              About the missing plan sheet. I have sailed various types and sizes of boats all my life

              and I am sure I can complete this model without the plan sheet. However, that is not

              the point. I understand that the sheet deals mostly with the sails and spars and I could

              figure that all out but it would be easier with the plan, it was supposed to be in the

              kit, and there may be details particular to that that boat that I am not familiar with.

              • Bob:

                The models I've seen of yours convince me that you'd be able to get along without the sheet, but it's a shame that they are so unresponsive.

                • Bob,

                  Great job so far! It is disappointing about the plans.

                  For your sea, will the wind be at 10-15 knots, small white caps beginning, on a reach with about a 15-20 degree heel?

                  Can't wait. I used to sail before line squalls when I was young and didn't know any better.

                  • Bob,

                    We all share your frustration with the lack of plans. That said, Google Images has a plethora of Friendship sloop plans, including some from Mystic Seaport, model photos and photos of 1:1 Friendships underway.

                    Good hunting!

                      • Mike, Scott, Pete, and Fred, thanks for your posts, very much appreciated.

                        As I said, I have no doubt that I can complete this model without the plan sheet, that's not

                        the point, I paid for a whole kit and I think I should have it, I'm still trying. The

                        instructions keeps telling you to refer to the plan sheet for details, frustrating.
