Hi all.


Account is very old but I haven't posted before now. I just started an experimental build log of HMS Surprise, using a 3D printed hull with scratchbuild fittings (hopefully I'll get that far).

Thanks all!


I guess I registered the username before noticing people here use something closer to their real names...

Welcome to MSW! I have seen a couple of excellent 3D builds on here now that were truly fascinating. They were of modern yachts though so I am very interested to see what you can do with an older ship like the Surprise. I will head over that way and follow along!


As to your user name, you can call yourself what ever you would like. A lot of people though will put their first name down in their signature if they would prefer to have people use it. You can do whichever you feel most comfortable with.
