Revell whaler Charles W. Morgan 1/110

January 22, 2015 · in Ships · · 10 · 2.7K

Hello all,

I'd like to present my Charles W. Morgan. I read a lot about this model on the dedicated modeling sites before starting. Wrong sailplan, wrong colours... I just started building and painting according to my vision of a nice boat.

Very out of the box, did most of the rigging but not all - a bit lasy and lack of time.

To my suprise this model is very much liked in my household and has conquered a firm place in the living! All my other poor ships, planes, helicopters and trains in my man-cave are a little jealous..

Good modeling!

  1. My hat's off to anyone who undertakes a sailing ship. I could never create one of these - nor would I try. Nice work, sir.

  2. Ships are always popular at home. They seem to transcend all those nasty shooty tanks and planes.

    Nice job on a decorative piece.

  3. Always loved the Morgan, when we were kids my parents took us more than once to Mystic Seaprt, Connecticut where the CWM was the main attraction. I had a real whaling/ wood ship kick then too. Your model looks great.

  4. Well done, finishing a traditional sailing ship!
    I haven't gotten around to building one myself yet.
    Thanks for posting.

  5. This posting is a nice change of pace. Like Craig I tip my hat to anyone who builds sailing ships.

  6. It's very attractive, Maurits, both to modellers and non-modellers alike, and would grace anybody's living room. Let's see what happens when it comes to the time to dust it!

  7. Thanks for all the positive comments!

  8. that's lovely

  9. Well done sir, more rigging than I could handle.
    Nice build there.

  10. Maurits,
    Great job. I admire ship builders that can do rigging.
