    Obviously I enjoy scale model building, ships and my HO scale railroad layout are my main areas right now but I still do the occasional car model for people.
    I also highly enjoy wood working, especially lathe work. I make many things from pens and ornaments to bowls, plates, vases and goblets. Always experimenting and trying new ideas as I see them.
    Outside of these I also enjoy my wife, two dogs and outdoor activities like biking, camping and fishing.

  1. What have you received today?

    Another book to add to the ever growing library. I really enjoyed Lavery's The Ship of the Line and have been wanting to get this one as well so when that Barnes and Noble coupon made an appearance in my email, I had to click buy now.
  2. Very nice room and an even nicer to-do list!

    Welcome to MSW! Good to have you with us. As suggested already, start up a build log and post some pictures of where you are at and of what the finished piece looks like if it is shown well on the box. We have many experienced builders that might have built her or are good with scratch building that might be able to give you some tips to create it.
  5. Welcome to MSW Chris! I would do as Mark has suggested and contact Mantua. Most of the manufacturers are good at providing missing pats and instructions to their kits. Plus then you know you have exactly what is missing. Good luck to you when you start working on her.

    Zach, welcome to MSW! I hope that you will start up a build log in our 3D/CAD section so we can see your work. There have been some really incredible models done in 3D and I know I would love to see what you do with yours. Best of luck to you!
  8. Back Again

    Welcome back! Sounds like you have gotten yourself set up and better prepared this time around. Good luck to you on your new builds and by all means start up that build log! I look forward to seeing your work.
  9. Ahoy!

    Welcome to MSW! I wish you the best of luck on your builds and hope you enjoy wooden ships as much as plastic.
  10. Welcome to MSW Alex! Great to have you with us and of course we would love to see pictures of your work both past and current build.
  11. Hello all from Staffordshire England

    Welcome to MSW! I don't have any tips for that particular model other than take your time and read ahead on the instructions but I do wish you the best of luck on your build.

    Here are my two girls. On the right is Daisy a 10 year old Boarder Collie/Brittany mix. On the left is Sammie an 8 month old Labrador Retriever/German Shepherd mix.
  14. What have you received today?

    I've always used track nails to hold it in place long enough for regular white glue to dry and have never had any problems with the track moving on me and it is easy to remove as I have taken apart a few layouts over the years. Great haul and worth the effort for sure!
  15. Glad to be aboard

    Welcome to MSW! You do have some great looking models already so thank you for sharing those with us.
