  1. What have you received today?

    Just received an old 'stab from the past' kit by Scientific - HMS Bounty. approx. length 14"
  2. Good Morning, from Somerset.

    Welcome Rory to this wonderful site. There are some fantastic modelers in here and there is always someone willing to extend some positive advice when needed!
  3. Hello

    Hello Mark and a marvelous build!
  4. Hello from Newbie in Georgia

    Welcome GTMIKE - It's good to see another 'Georgian' in here LOL I'm located in the Atlanta Metro area and started modeling when I arrived here in 2011. I'm fairly new to be giving any advice, but I looked up your kit and it looks like it could be a nice start. Minimal rigging and you get experience in planking a bulkhead rather than a frame. I am finishing up on my 1st wooden kit which came with a solid hull but involved a little more rigging. As far as ship terminology, I would look up a name or term on google for an answer, but the advantage of sites like this one is, there is always someone to help point a way or answer one's questions. Which ever model you decide to build as your first kit, enjoy what you are doing and take your time. Good adventures lie ahead for you I'm sure. Cheers!
  5. Hello from Texas!

    Welcome Andrew and here's to wooden modeling! I'm fairly new to this myself. You may want to check out a Harbor Freight for some supplies as well. Enjoy and have fun

  11. Nat - sorry I can't help out with the plans but sure looking forward to watching your Connie come together I've been working on a Bluenose by Scientific. Maybe you can follow instructions by looking at a Revell Connie build in one of the websites if you cannot find Scientific plans. I also referred to a Bluenose practicum to help me along with details on my build. Please post some pics of your work - Cheers!!!
  12. Holy guacamole!!! All of you have been very kind to respond with all of these diagrams and pictures. I'm going to look over all of this and give it a shot. Many THANKS to Brunelrussell, Thistle17 (Joe), Captain Poison and Aviaamator for your help. Cheers and thanks!!! Sincerely, beginner 'Bob'

    Sapphire - I chose the Model Shipways kit because this would be my 1st attempt at planking a boat. The parts that came with this kit are good quality in details. The kit includes 5 sheets of plans and an illustrated instruction manual to assist the build. Keep us informed and a good build on which ever one you choose!
