Greetings - my name is Vincent and I am looking forward to participating in this forum. I am new to this so much of my participation will be asking for help.  :o

 

I read the beginner's cautionary tail and identified with most of it. I purchased the Corel kit of the Sirene, She's a 1775 French Frigate, 1:75 scale. I started it about 5 years ago but became too busy with work so put it down. I am now recently retired and began working on it again.

 

I will start a build log with photos to show my progress and get any advice anyone has to offer. Help is always appreciated and I'm not offended easily. :10_1_10:

Thank you in advance for your support and ideas.

 

Vincent

Hello Vincent and welcome aboard,

I wish you a happy retirement filled with fun and happiness.

Your buildlog of Sirene is allready up and running.
May I suggest you create your signature and place a link to your build there.
That way your log is just a mouseclick away. This topic explains how to add the link to your signature: http://modelshipworl...your-signature/

Good luck with your build and I wish you smooth sailing and happy modelling.

Regards,
Anja

Thank you Anja. It seems that I need more posts to gain access to edit the signature. Once I have that I will add the build log link as you suggest.

You are welcome Vincent,

My mistake, you need indeed at least 10 posts in order to post links and pictures.

Regards,
Anja
