Yes, the time has come for me to temporarily abandon my beloved Midwest Boats and seek a more intermediate ship to build.  Alas, the Corel Scotland has been on my list for quite some time and I decided last night to start it up.

 

Looks like all the parts and there and in good shape.

 

Started out with the keel and frame, will be busting out the exacto and the mini chisels tonight.

 

Can't wait to get this ship started!!!

This is my first crack at a Corel kit, the instructions look very good for this ship.  Well, at least for now! :)

I'm not familiar with this Boat Casey, but what are the 'Sticky Up' bits of bulkhead (above deck level, if you follow me) in the third photo?

I just was test fitting.  bulkheads 7 and 6 actually stick up I believe to help create the structure.

I hope you don't mind if I too, pull up a chair.  Looks to be an interesting model.

Well, I last night I started the front bulkheads.  I know this has been asked a thousand times but anyone have any great ideas to get these guys leveled?  I have been filing away at the top but I think I am better off widing the notch where they attach to the keel.  Thanks!

Brian,

Before gluing the bulkheads and any further filing (unless it's to late) compare the bulkhead towards the plan.

Just to make sure the dimensions are right from the start.

Just my 2cents

With a name like this I should pull up a chair - haggis anyone?

Does this kit come with sails? Whilst I have not been a member for very long I have not seen many vessels with sails. The ones I have seen tend to be furled. Presumably difficult to get them to hang right?

Good luck

Cheers

In a way, it comes with a standard white cloth that needs to be sewn.  That's where I am clueless, I do not have a sewing machine nor can I use a needle and thread.  Perhaps I will need to learn...

Dr. Per, thanks for the guidance. It didn't come with large layout plans except for the rigging diagrams. but in the back of the instruction book alas there were the bulkhead designs! Thanks!!

Casey,
Needle craft 101 for you!
I'm sure there must be a "how to...." In the resource section of the forum. After all there seems to be a thread on most topics

Cheers

Craig, I think I am going to furl them.  Easier way out but from the look of the kit box the sails cover up a lot of the deck, so I may have to get them out of the way yet keep them in sight.
