  2. Tasmanian Myrtle (Nothofagus Cunninghamii)

    Thanks grsjax.
  3. Friends, Any thoughts about using Tasmanian Myrtle (Nothofagus Cunninghamii), partic for deck and hull planking? It is quite cheaply available on ebay in 0.6mm veneer sheets, sent direct from Tasmania. http://stores.ebay.com.au/TopVeneer?_trksid=p2047675.l2563 It seems to be a dense, fine-grained wood, with quite pale pink colour. Anyone have any wisdom or experience on this matter? Tim

    This is a wonderful project. I love the Flying Fish, and this seems to be a splendid model...with careful precise and enviable craftmanship on display, and a a high level of accurate historical detail. Amazing. Interested to know where you got the accurate historical info from? Just in case I decide to build one of these myself! Tim

    Just discovered this little gem! One of my favourite models in the MSW gallery. The weathering is done brilliantly. Love it. Tim

    Beautiful. Thanks for sharing this. Tim
  9. Adam I suggest you include Master Korabel. I recently purchased their Phoenix Brigantine kit (I bought the plus version that includes the ships boat, higher quality wood and blocks) for a bit under $200 US. Its quality is truly excellent, and value for money extraordinary. There are also thirteen very clear online tutorials on youtube for each stage of its build. See an example here: https://youtu.be/c3MmCMmNK2s. For a someone time poor and without lots of experience, its the best kit on the market. Good review of its contents here https://youtu.be/1ITBzejbDbA Below are some photos...not mine. Tim
