  1. Hello all again, sorry it has been several months since my last update. The wife and I purchased a house so I have been dealing with getting the house the way she wants it. But with the new house I was able to get a permanent work space for all my modeling needs. The only downside to the space is my cats insist on sharing the room with me. Thus I can't leave any of my works out while not working on them. I have started up again and made some progress on the build. I have glued the first two decks together. I have redrilled the holes for the na
  2. Hello all, An update on my progress, sadly it has been slow, work has been demanding and the wife and I have been house hunting.

I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures, I took these, my wife took the orginal posted pictures.
  5. Yeah I started this over a year ago while i was in Korea, my wife bought it for me in Seoul. Unfortunately I was to busy to work on it much there, but now since I am back in the States I decided to continue on. Currently though the wife and I live in a two bedroom apartment with 4 cats (the cats already broke the model once...) so i have no permanent work space (will be house hunting this September) to leave the model out. It becomes quite a chore to setup and tear down a workspace to just do a little bit of work. I am determined to work on it a little everyday though and look forward to
  6. Greetings all, I am in the process of making my first attempt at building a wooden ship. The kit i have started on is the "King of the Mississippi" by Artesania Latina. I look forward to advice as I progress.
