Model ship building, whether from kits or from scratch, does not require a vast array of exotic tools. To the right of the sanding block is a bulk pack of replacement blades for the hobby knife below and to the right of it. Some entry-level ship model kits either come with tools (such as the Artesania Latina kit at right), or can be purchased with a tool set.
The building berth is developed for construction of type-setting hull in length to 1 metre (for example, kits of type Montanes, Victory, Superb, Vangard, Astrolabe, etc.). Depending on a stage of construction of the hull those or other details of a building berth are applied. I made wooden washers by cutting some thin solid stock I had with a whole cutter then widening the center hole to just fit the a…?" tubing snuggly. Since the line being served moves through either end of the machine, the length of line being served can be very long.
Anyway, I thought I would share this with all of you in case there is anyone else out there looking to make a machine on their own.
For the photos I used a lighter colored thread as the serving line so it would show up in the photos. Welcome GUEST to the Model Ship World Community.Please LOGIN or REGISTER to use all of our feautures.

Not only used for measuring, a steel ruler makes a great straight-edge for cutting long, straight lines. A hobby knife is probably the single most used tool in model ship building, and a good supply of spare blades should be kept on hand, and changed often, so you are always using a sharp one. The pin vise holds the drill bits for drilling tiny holes, a common task in ship model building. Rigging thread is drawn across the beeswax to reduce its fuzz, as well as to help it lay more realistically. The only differences in the set pictured here with our tools above is the addition of a couple needle files, a magnifying glass with part-holding clips, a wire cutter (handy mainly for removing cast-metal parts from a sprue), paint, and a paint brush.

The design allows to fix reliably and precisely keel and bulkheads in the course of assemblage of the hull, its covering and installation on the hull of details. The building berth really turned out quite convenient, I use it with pleasure and is happy that in due time didn't buy the ready design which is available on sale  .


This is based upon the article "Modifications to Dobson's String-Along" in the Ship Modeler's Shop Notes II.
If you don’t have one, a scrap of wood with a flat side with sandpaper wrapped around it and thumb tacked to the top will fill in its place. The locking sort prevent a brief relaxation of your hand sending a tiny part down to the floor, where it may never be found. If you don’t have one, sometimes you can cut off the corner of a die-cut parts sheet to make one.
Don’t worry about beginner tool kits with much more than this, as you will probably end up with tools you seldom use. Glad I never bought one, thought about it way back when but at least that is not one of the dumb things that sit in a box in the corner LOL.
