  1. Have you ever browsed through your favorite build to see what the full build looks like at the present time? Have you ever wondered what else is being built on MSW 2.0, it may be a kit, scratch, R/C, card or plastic, or any other material, including digital reconstruction. I am inviting all members to post a latest photo of their build (side elevation)and a link to that build, so everyone can see what it looks like, and give others an idea of what else is going on. I am not trying to create a multitude of build logs under one topic, just photo’s so we can all see what is going on. This will possibly help others in deciding on what to build next Anyone interested?
  2. Hey guys, I browse these days a lot of online shops, especially the ones from kit selection pdf here and notice that most of the kits are marked as difficulty level 2 or 3 out of 5. So I was wondering is there any kit that is ranked at 4 or even 5 out of 5? I'm curios to see how it looks like, what's in the box, etc. Because for me as a beginner even the ones rated at 3 looks pretty hard (I'm working on level 2 right now - Corsair by OcCre). Or the people here with more models through their hands - what do you consider the hardest kit? I hope it's not duplicate topic since I didn't found anything like that in the search

Kurt Van Dahm Westmont, IL mtdoramike, a MSW member just made the following contribution to the potential kit purchaser: Hey Kurt, I would like to make a contribution to the Victory kit sale. If a member on the MSW forums buys the kit, I will also include the following: 1. A few pieces of wood from the real Victory ship that I received from England when I built the Victory. I paid about $75.00 for the wood, but have a few pieces left which they can use to make a few pieces of the model like Anchor collars tie down bits and such. 2. Instruction manual and CD with the plans for the HMS Victory by Artesania Latina in case they would like to make any mods from one kit to the other. I will even cover the cost of the shipping to the buyer. mike central Florida
  4. Hi: I asked this question in my introduction topic but I think here is a better place to ask. These are the kits I have bought, some because are very old and I did not want to miss the opportunity of having them. - America yacht by sterling models (RC) - Dallas revenue cutter by Artesania Latina - Swift by Artesania Latina - Bluenose by mini mamoli My 2 candidates are the swift and the bluenose. I actually bought the bluenose to make it my first model but now that I have it seems very small and I think would be hard to do the rigging for a beginner, the main point is that it is solid hull construction which is easier but to be honest I do not like solid hull construction however it can be a good exercise for other techniques. Should I start with the mini mamoli? the swift by AL? or something bigger like the Dallas revenue(I wouldn't like to mess this kit because it is out of production)? The America yacht I think is out of play for now because this particular ship has a special place in my heart (childhood memories) and I want to start it once I feel comfortable with my skills as a model ship builder. Your help is appreciate it. Juan

  6. Hi Guys, I have been away from modelling for a few years now, but my oldest boy saw the advert for build the "Pirates of the Caribbean" and he was really keen to build it. I mentioned that I had one in the shed, so I dragged it out an dusted it off. The boys and I are building the AL San Francisco. We have been at it for a few weeks now only spending a couple of hours a week, but it is coming along. I recognise a few of the names on the list - so a big hello to all. Cheers Mark from Tassie
