Thank you all! I will start my next build as soon as I read through the in
structions a few times as well as Kurt's articles. I also need to rearrange my work area to better suit the new build. Anyway, here are the photos! I apologise for the unprofessional background.

Hi Elijah

 

For some strange reason, I've lost track of your wonderful build log...and that's saddened me.  My apologies!  

 

On a far brighter note; my word, what a top job you've done on your ship.  She's got heaps of character and heaps of charm, all combined with a large dollop of 'wow'.

 

I'm really pleased to see the final result and I'm looking forward to following your next little beauty.

 

All the best!

Elijah, your backdrop works just fine. In fact, it blocks out distractions and your closeups are excellent. Very nice work.

Elijah,

 

This is wonderful work, well done! Getting to the end of a wood ship project is a really good sign of things to come, whatever you do. 

 

I love the lines on the boat but, after reading through your build, I did not see the designer's name. I may have missed that. Do you know who drew and built the original? 

 

Best Regards, 

 

Rick

Patrick, no worries. I'm sure you follow a number of builds, as do I. I can't even keep up with all of them most of the time :(

 

The gunboat log should start in a few weeks, but I'm not going to bet on it! I've learned a lot about the reliability of over optimistic  predictions :D.

 

Thanks Ken!

 

Thanks Rick! The boat was designed by Dennison Lawlor and was built in 1868 in New York.

Elijah:

Great model - you can be proud of your first build.  If you bring the model to our next meeting I will take some photos of it for you using my set up here so you have a couple of good photos against a nice background.

On to the Philadelphia - you are going to enjoy this build.

Thanks Zoltan! 

 

Pav, don't feel bad. I had a model I tried to do by mamoli which had terrible instructions. I didn't make it far and took up the Phantom instead. I'm sure you will finish one, just keep at it!

 

Thank you very much Kurt! I would love to have some pictures taken with your set up!

Congratulations on finishing your Phantom.  You did an excellent job on building this model.  You also accomplished what a lot of first time model ship builders never do and that is to finish your first ship model.  I am looking forward to following your Philadelphia build log.

Congrats Elijah, one down and many more to build.  As RC stated above, a major achievement in completing your first build, many lose patience or confidence in their skills.  Good luck with Philadelphia.

 

cheers

GREAT JOB!

 

Wow Elijah, you have really done some fantastic work here.  An outstanding first effort (waaaay better than mine) and the the fact that you stuck with it, didn't get discouraged and came through it all with a great looking Phantom should be an inspiration to all of us!  As others have stated, your patience, attitude and work ethic shows a maturity and strength of character not often found in young people today.  I'm sure whatever you chose to do in life, you will be successful at it.

 

Thank you for being willing to share your first build experience with everyone.  I look forward to following your Philidelphia build and I'm sure it will be fantastic.
