    Default What's on Your Workbench for March?

    This month I am working on Temeraire class French 74s and a few Spanish SOLs.

    You manage some very neat paint work, I was a little surprised that there were no Chinese ships in the pictures but I imagine the Junk comes later!

    I've looked at repainting one of the SoG ships and doubt I could replicare the quality of the paintwork on the standard factory ships, so I didn't do it.

    Shelf! Good grief how do you manage Vol. We have a junk room, and it is still not big enough.

    After a rapid passage of only eight days from the Chesapeake to Nottingham via the river Trent the USS President docks at Chez Bligh.

    Thanks for the hard work in sailing her over Captain Dobbs.

    Bligh.

    Like Admiral Bligh I have a junk room, I refer to it as my War Games Room, Mrs V refers to it as John's Play Room. There are a few projects similar to your Junk although not nearly as presentable.

    Just got around to putting these ship base caeds into place and discovered a cunning idea of Dobbs which I shall copy on all my other ships.
    He may well have explained this before, but if so it has escaped me so here is a snapshot of the base of USS President with its non slip EVA foam added. Well done Dobbs.

    I'm glad you like it! It is 2 layers of 1/8" foam with adhesive backing that I got from a craft store. Do you have Walmarts in England? How far has the scourge spread?

    This just arrived from Brigade Miniatures. It will be my Fort McHenry. I don't really foresee square riggers dueling in inner city Baltimore, but I've kind of started viewing this hobby as model railroading where you can shoot cannons at your friends. It's fun to build 3D scenes, even if they may not have a practical combat application.

    The buildings were extra. The ship is included for scale. Gre

    Wow very nice Dobbs! I had been looking at this Brigade fort for my 1/1200 ships when I got the first 1/700 ship pack. When I get back to the smaller scale, it will work very nicely for a French vauban.

    Hi Dobbs.
    We do not have Walmart in England as such, but they own ASDA stores. I ordered some of the 3mm foam yesterday from Amazon so should be underway with it in a few days time. It is not sticky backed but I will either hot glue it or use double sided tape to hold it in.
    I will report back when I have trialled it.

    I bought up a set of each type of Bastian and hornworks when they first came out and have used them in parts of the forts I did for Basque Roads and the Moroccan/ Algerian port of Gizzanoffa, Dobbs.
    They are an excellent ancillary for constructing these works and save hours of scratch building.

    Thanks Rob. These FDM prints are much cruder detailed than the resin prints, but much less fragile as well. I have yet to break anything on one of them, whereas I have broken bits off a resin print just by picking it up!

    Nice looking 64s Chris and the razee is excellent! These represent a lot of work. And the Hood, nice! Is it a 3D? What scale? I have one I haven't painted yet and seeing yours makes me want to. And I would indeed like to see your Jacobites.

    A superb body of men Chris, and the Hanoverian's aint bad either.
    With re-enacting the period I always intended doing a Jacobite army, but somehow just never got around to it, considering that it would have constituted the smallest army I would have ever had to paint.
    So well done that man. Run Jonny Cope!

    Year before last skirmish at Swarkstone Bridge. the last event we attended BC.

    That set of photos was taken by me from the Pub door. When we do the show each year we get hot mincepies and a free coffee from the pub. After the show we have a few drinks and lunch in the bar. Then pop off to change into our posh Kit ready for the Annual Evening Meal and sing song before retiring to either our rooms in the pub for the night or the Motel down the road if we can't get a booking at the pub. As it is in December very few brave camping out at that time of year.

    As promised Vol, here are a few of myself with the Laird of John Roy Stuart's Regiment and the first also with Chris Rogers who is also a member of the Anchorage. We two are dressed in our Manchester's Regimentals.

    The one below that is me dying in the long grass. More of which anon.

    Not quite done, but looking a lot more like her sister brigs that were made with the drivers "borrowed" from the Hebe frigates. It's much less expensive to build a brig this way!

    Well ahead of me now Dobbs, and looking right smart as we say in Nottingham.
    I need to get my finger out today.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    I found the same Dobbs. When I was doing sinking ship wrecks I had plenty of drivers to spare but now they have all dried up.

    This looks to be loads of fun. You are so fortunate to live where you do with such rich history.

    I have a strange hankering after the Civil War in the States, and AWI, even though we have done so much over here. A lot of our Regiment also do Napoleonics mostly in Europe and Spain, and a few even do 30 years war in Germany about every other year.
    We did two or three French and Indian Wars re-enactments at Bath American Museum some years ago, but that is all the contact with your history we have had.

    The only thing that's been on the 'workbench' this month is going through old photos and saving them digitally. I've also been enhancing and colorizing some of the really old family pictures. Rob, your living history photos are very enjoyable and that takes me back to when I was involved in Buckskinning/Rendezvous living history as well as a fun Scottish Dance group. The attached photo was my first ever camp out at Bloody Lake in southern Wisconsin. Site of one of the many Blackhawk War confrontations.

    Having always lived in the Western part of the continent, I have never been close to Civil War Reenactment groups. I was a SCA player for 6 years, but I don't really consider that the same thing. One of my retirement bucket list items is to attend an ACW reenactment of one of the large battles in the east. But I am afraid, with the current toxic political cancel culture in the US right now, they will all be shut down before I can.

    I realize that this is not really chippy shop stuff, but anything that helps keep our spirits up at this time is great. I will not move this thread to the Wardroom unless anyone is concerned.

    And you can put your own caption to this one.
    Mine is " You would of thought he could have given at least one of us a croggy to Prestonpans."

    Ah yes, now I see it! It looks very sharp, and I love the 'B' side name. I'm going to have to borrow that one.
