Hello, I've been lurking and reading some excellent recommendations on this site. All feedback has been appreciated and has helped in my first ship build. I have done my fair share of plastic models as a younger person, and more recently HO and N modeling in railroad. I recently picked up a vintage scientific Cutty Sark model at the local thrift store. So this is my first attempt at a wooden ship model. I am probably 90% complete after two weeks of work and am very satisfied with my piece. I have just completed the standing rigging, and just now attaching sails and running rigging. Anyways, just wanted to say hello, and I look forward to learning as much as I can about this wonderful hobby.
