  1. Hey mates—Be careful with the EuroModel kit for building the Renommée frigate. It's likely the Swedish Jupiter and not a French ship at all. Take a look at www.larenommeeship.com in the "Sea Bag" for the article about EuroModel's error. Nice model, but wrong ship.
  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
  3. First ship model?

    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
  4. 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
  5. 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?
  6. Hi everyone, I'm 20 years old and new to the model ship community. I am looking for a good starter ship thats not going to make me feel like and idiot because its so easy to build, and wont cost a months rent to buy. I would prefer a ship that I could remotely sail on the lake next to where I live. Any suggestions? Thanks
