Many years ago I was very fond of building model kits. Mostly plastic models but also some RC planes and boats.
My only experience from plank built boats was ”Hjejlen paddle steamer” - from Billing Boats, which I never finished due to (in my opinion) bad deck fittings etc.
Since then my mind has been occupied by computer graphics and games so there is a 25 year gap until now.
I guess my 50’years crisis made me rediscover this hobby 😉 so now I have ordered the Caldercraft ”Sherbourne” kit for starters. I hope I will finnish it, at least I am much better of now, when I can take part of the vast knowledge this forum offers.
