    New to Model Ship World

    Greetings: Wishing Peace to all on this Christmas morning. My name is Richard Binga and although new to this forum I'm not to the hobby. I have been modeling tall ships for over 40 years. Sold my first (Plastic) model ship at age 13, remembering I had an argument with the client over the rigging. I was wrong, he was right, and that's when I hit the books. Being determined not to have or give the same experience to another client. Well its been about 37 years since then and I'm still making mistakes, however there highly refined. Modeling significantly changed for me when I discovered Dockside Models. Now my models are all made from solid woods, drafting portions of my own plans to scale and teaching my children the importance of research. When all is said and done this lifestyle has been good to me. I hope to pass on the love for all this to others. Again Merry Christmas Rick B.
