They are now adults and have other interests. Finally, I prepared a working

  9. Having completed the AVS, I can finally start this new and long awaited project. Indeed, it's been two years now that the kit has been waiting for. I really wanted to finish my work on the Virginia in order to gain some experience. I chose this project because it is an example of the best in the world of model shipbuilding. The kit is of the highest quality and the instruction manual is a model of perfection. Moreover, I have many logs on this site and they are all very informative. I will try to show myself up to the height. When I bought the kit from Syren, I i

  12. Thank you all. I really was able to learn a lot during this build. Bob, I will continue my work on the Medway longboat and especially start my next project which will be the magnificent Cheerful cutter. Glenn, I completely share your opinion on the AVS. It is really a very good model to start in this hobby.
