31 year old newbie from Norway here. I have just started on my second build, HMS Diana from Occre.
I discovered ship modelling last christmas when my dad bought a kit from AL and i wanted to try it for myself. My first kit was the Scottish Maid from AL. It was a nice experience building it, but the instructions in the kit were very poor. I came across this fantastic site and found some very helpfull buildlogs on the Scottish Maid. I doubt i had finish the modell if it werent for all the great tips om this site.
Luckely, the instructions in the HMS Diana kit is much better, and i have found some buildlogs on the modell that i gonna follow and learn from.
