  1. Hello, everyone. I am a semi-retired 67-year old Nevadan and have built Model Airways model aircraft in the past. I am embarking on the Model Shipways brig, Syren. It is, to say the least, an ambitious project but it's also best suited for my tastes and skill sets. I have pored over the threads herein and spent a couple of weeks (literally!) reading the manual provided by Chuck Passaro (my hero). One question looms: Is there anything in particular that you can recommend, guide or even warn me about when building this model? Please let me know! I am starting the beading lines and bevels in the bulkheads, et al. today. I move slowly. Thanks!
  2. Easiest to plank

    I have four Model Shipways kits in my closet waiting to be built. since I haven't actually built and completed a ship model yet, I'm wondering which out of the three ships is the easiest to plank for a first time ship build? The Mayflower Pride of Baltimore 2 Benjamin Latham
  3. Hello, I am interested in buying the model shipways Willie L. Bennett kit and was just wondering how the instructions are that come with it. I took a look at them on the website but wasn't sure as to how well it walks you through the build. This will be my second build and first POB build so I just want to know if this will be a good kit to start POB with. Any comments, opinions, guidance would be appreciated. Thanks,
  4. Gang, I got Model Shipway's Pride of Baltimore II kit to build as a first wooden ship kit recently, and, scanning the kit and instructions, the first thing that jumped out at me is that the center keel is no longer (as shown in the instructions) two pieces. Which makes me wonder... what else have they changed that they don't reflect in the (obviously not updated) plans or instructions? Anyone else here bought/built the kit recently? thanks, Doug Fair Haven, Vermont
  5. I am new to the hobby and need a lot of advice. I considered buying the Constructo kit of the USS Constitution but I noticed that Model Shipways has a 48 inch model available at what seems to me a good price. I have built many RC airplanes so I'm not new to working with wood although nothing like the craftsmanship needed to produce a ship like this. I would like to know which is the best model to build. My wife calls me "Tim the tool man" because I tend to go with the bigger . . however is there something I need to know before making this decision? I want something that will give me a challenge and look worthy of my time when I finish. Which kit has the best parts quality to it? Or is there another kit of the USS Constitution out there that I am not aware of? Any help and advice is appreciated.
  6. My question is about Model Shipways "Steam Towboat Taurus" Kit # 2021. Has any one built the newer kit with the laser cut parts? The instructions only show the old solid pilot house. Has anyone built the laser cut one? The parts don't stack up high enough to make one.
