Tallshiptragic posted a topic in Build Logs for SHIP MODEL KITSAfter another long break I've decided to get my feet wet once again. I've recently picked up an early Sergal Sovereign of the seas kit. This is I assume at least early 80's judging by the box art and the fact most parts have to be cut out and are not laser cut or pre cut. From what I have read a lot of people were disappointed with the later releases from the rebadged mantua sergal version as it had laser cut plywood deck planking and gun port cutouts as this early version doesn't. There is also no balsa in this kit. This ship has been on a list a mile long for me to build purely due to the ornamentation and what she represented in the future of the three decker warships. So having seen it for sale nearby, whether it was the old or new version I had to grab it!

A neighbor recently gave me two antique wooden ship models. They belonged to his uncle and he believes they were built circa 1900. One has no name and was badly damaged when it was given briefly to a 2-year-old to play with. It appears to be completely hand made and the hull appears to be carved from a solid block of wood. The second is a model of Sovereign of The Seas. It is complete with very little damage, but is still in need of a fair amount of work. The detail on this model is far greater and many components appear to be cast metal, suggesting that it was perhaps built from a kit. I've attached photos. Any help identifying the unnamed ship, kit manufacturer(s) or possibly ship builders would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Ed
