    Hello from southern England

    Gidday Bruce and another warm welcome from the Land Downunder. I must agree with Tony, see post above, regarding scratch building. Not too long ago it wasn't a "thing" it was how models were made. We all must start somewhere and I admire your decision to bypass kits. You will definitely find support and encouragement here. Don't be afraid to ask questions. I am looking forward to your build log. All the best with your build. Mark.

    Hello from Chicago

    Gidday Mike and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder. I think it's a good idea to look at some different build logs and see what can be expected in modelling a wooden ship. Your experience in modelling should give you a good grounding. The level of support, encouragement and knowledge here is fantastic. Wishing you all the best in your build. Mark.

    Hello from New york!

    Gidday Josh and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder. I like your work. If I attempted a ship in a bottle the bottle would have to be gigantic. All the best with your builds. Mark.

    Hello from New England New Member

    Gidday dagdisco and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder. You are correct the level of knowledge and support on this site is fantastic. Have you built the models in your collection or were they complete when you purchased them? It makes no difference to me I am just curious by nature. Hopefully you can post some pictures. All the best with your collection. Mark.

    Salutations

    Gidday Chris and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder. I envy you having a job you love and so obviously being in love. Time constraints affect us all. Family, work , play and life in general get in the way. Then again if all we did was modelling this too would become a chore. I look at modelling as providing a challenging respite from everyday life and while I don't relish every minute I do find satisfaction in setting and meeting my own goals. Wishing you all the best with your build. Mark.
  9. Gidday Harald and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder. The picture you have posted of the Standart shows what a beauty she was. Looking forward to your build log. All the best with your build. Mark.

    Just saying hello

    Gidday Keef and a warm, its currently 36 Celsius here, welcome from the Land Downunder. I can empathize with your comment re mental health. I also have some issues and enjoy the time at the bench when the Black Dog can be kept at bay. I hope I haven't brought anyone down. All the best with your build. Mark.
