  1. That really is coming to life. I know there's a lot of PE but it does fit beautifully and doesn't take too long. 😍
  2. Good morning Andy, My general background has also been plastic, but I've been doing wood ships since 2001 (with a break of a few years in there too), so it's nice to see someone with a similar background join here. St. Gabriel is a beautiful kit and you really did a corking job on her. Question is....what is next? ❓ Oh, and
  3. When I built it, Zulu was the first ship I'd rigged in over 12yrs. I think it took me about 4 or 5 days. At my current pace, after Flirt and Duchess, I'd probably do it in 2 or 3hrs!
  4. `I absolutely love this. That black upper hull, registration number and the overall finish and attention to detail. Amazing that this is a first build.
  5. Hi Yves, A good number of sheets were actually cut from a timber that was unsuitable for purpose, as the grain was too coarse. Very fine parts were crumbling. There seems to have been some miscommunication at the laser plant, and replacements are hopefully expected in these next months. Coronavirus has screwed up Amati's release schedule, and Bismarck was due to be released last November, then it had to be moved to Jan/Feb this year. I remember proof reading the two manuals for it and being very tied for time with it. In retrospect, I could've have had more time!

  7. Always nice to see a fellow countryman here 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Whatever you decide to build, I look forward to following it on a build log here.
  8. I'm having déjà vu here as I'm about to finish the first three of NINE different 1:64 boats for Chris. With this one you're building, I didn't go for clinker planking simply because I only had one set of parts and didn't want to screw it up 😆
