Thought I would pop in and say hi before starting a build log on my latina HMS Surprise. A little background on how I got interested. My dad picked up a Model Shipways kit and basically introduced us to this form of modelling, though I suspect I would have ended up there. I really like and appreciate projects of this sort, detailed models, eye catching art pieces etc... and this really ticked all of the boxes. I have done quite a bit of modelling(plastic) and was looking for a statue to display in the home. After seeing my dad's build and how interesting, satisfying the process was, and the really cool product he had to show afterwards, I was hooked. I will be starting a build log shortly on my first build. Look forward to sharing and gleaning as much info as possible.
