Editor's Note: Most of the scratchbuilt ships on this page are the work of John Youngerman. He has written a very informative article on scratchbuilding 1:1200 scale ships that I highly recommend. Also check out Paul Jacob's building tips page for helpful hints for scratchbuilding small scale ships.

  redball.gif (371 bytes) USS Pensacola CA-24, #2 1:1200 scratchbuild by Don Simon showing Pensacola circa 1939.
The model is constructed of bass wood, card stock, paper, thread, fly tying silk and various sizes of brass/copper tube and wire. The rigging (hard to see against the dark blue background) is 36 gauge copper wire removed from a lamp cord. For the wood decks I used bass wood plane shavings cut to the appropriate shapes. It doesn't show too well in the photographs, but up close it is a fabulous effect as the wood planking sits above the "steel" deck, and of course it truly is natural wood. Four Curtiss SOC's sit on the catapults and 9 (!) boats are nested forward of the mainmast.

  redball.gif (371 bytes) RMS Olympic (1911), #2, #3 1:1200 scratchbuild by Don Simon, who writes,. "I built this model in 1993, shortly after I had left the US Navy and had gotten back into my model building hobby. At that point I had not learned of the technique of using wood plane shavings, hence the decks on this model are painted in Testors Wood color. I also had a lot to learn about wake patterns as well.

Faults notwithstanding, it occupies a place of honor in my china cabinet (where it's safe from the cats) and I am proud to share it with fellow ship model builders. The model was photographed in direct sunlight using a 35 mm SLR camera with Kodak ASA 100 speed film."
 redball.gif (371 bytes) Author, #2 Sean Pritchard writes..." based on a near sister produced by CM.I got Carlo's permission to modify the model-new bridge block and a lot of work to hull,fixtures and fittings-certainly not a copy by the time I'd finished it.Made about 20 or so for the Kassel meeting about 8-9 years ago.

It is the Harrison ship "Author",Polish built,and with the container support racks on the side of the hull these ships had very distinctive and prominent weathering-in fact the rust is understated!"
 redball.gif (371 bytes) Zuiderkruis, #2 A Sean Pritchard conversion..."It is the dutch replenishment ship Zuiderkruis. The model is from a bare metal casting made by the now defunct ATS (ATS 11 in fact) which I think were produced by Sextant.It has had quite a lot of work done to it-new masts, RAS gear and hoses from copper wire from household flex) new boats,scratchbuilt "goalkeeper"CIWS, and in addition has had a whole new section of hull added to the bottom of it, to give the "light" appearance. Decals came from my own stocks, ut cut about to make the correct pattern and codes. Quite a nice model,and a change from USN or RN."
