Hello All -
I am quite new to model ship building, having only started in mid 2016. I have already found this to be a very rewarding hobby - and in particular I am surprised at just how much thinking and planning ahead is involved! I have built one kit model (the Port Jackson Schoooner from Modellers Shipyard) and am currently building the Mary Byrne (a colonial ketch also from Modellers Shipyard). Both are rated at skill level 2 - and I am finding it fascinating as to just how much work is involved.
I am picking up skills I never knew I had (such as planking and furnture construction) - and I have quickly come to realise that in building one ship that I am really picking up skills for my next build.
I look forward to uploading some photos of my build( once I figure out how to...) - and to reading all the advise and tips that experienced modellers can give me.
All the best,
