My name is Benoit and I'm from Belgium.
I normally make plastic kits but was always looking up my dad in the time when he made wooden ships.
I recently bought the "Adventure pirate ship" from Amati. I bought it because on the box they wrote "easy to build" but looking at the plans inside it will be a challenge ;). I have also contacted Amati because there a piece of the plans missing. I don't have the part were you can see the whole deck and were you can see the place and how big the parts 24 and 26 are.
I will certenly put some pictures here on the forum to show how it gets.
Do you have a technique to taper the masts?
