  1. As already mentioned in the other thread, I'm in. It will be the perfect subject to learn rigging and sails techniques.
  2. I'm very interested. A longboat at the same scale as the barge will be an interesting project and for me the opportunity to learn new techniques. If the distance is not a problem, I'm in, preferably for a kit version.
  3. I agree with Dave and Eric. A stern section would be a very good idea. When I see what is preparing for the next Admiralty Models October 2018 Workshop, I can only regret to live so far... https://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/18207-admiralty-models-october-2018-workshop/
  4. Thanks for the answers. I will do some research with the term "bitumen".
  5. I found on facebook a photo album of a beautiful Portuguese fishing boats at the 1:16 scale. I join some of the photos founded on this album. My question: do you know which techniques were used to obtain this result ? For those who are interested, you can consult the complete album at the following address : https://www.facebook.com/pg/Shipmodels.ua/photos/?tab=album&album_id=571832076319604 The team that build this model is an Ukrainian company.
  6. Visit To England

    London is really a wonderful city. You will have great time. If you also like military aircraft, you can visit the RAF Museum in London. The Royal Air Force Museum's London site at Hendon is vast and contains a lot of airplanes.
  7. Hello, I'm new on the world of the model ship building. As many of You, I have built some plastic ship models when I was a youth (Santa Maria, Soleil Royal, USS Constitution, Titanic,...) When I was a member of a modelling club, I discovered the world of the military figures and turn my interest into these part of the world modeling. I'm always painting figure miniatures. I recently found this forum and his wonderful build logs. As I never lost my interest for the model ships, I decide to try to build my first boat. I'm actually working on the Armed Virginia Sloop from Model Shipways. Sorry if my English is not perfect but I live in the french part of Switzerland. We have mountains but also the larger lake of Europe (the Leman) on which sail very nice barges. I hope to share soon my work through a build log. Have a nice day. Jean-Paul
