  1. Thank you Michael, coming from you it is a most encouraging comment. I've had the occasion to admire your varied and high quality projects. What I am lacking most in this endeavour at present is... TIME !!! Surprise surprise... Following the summer sales season I shall have more of that precious commodity.

  5. Many thanks Gentlemen for your encouraging words and advice. I shall diligently gather the documentary elements enabling an accur
  6. Hello everyone, I'm happy to have come across the modelshipworld website and feel less lonely in my interest for model boatbuilding, in which I'm a complete novice, albeit with some basic manual skills. A few photos of my first model boatbuilding project, a bit unorthodox but for some reason I wanted to carve a hull from a solid piece of wood, I had oak on hand. Length 25 cm, scale 1/68 (?). Progress has sufficiently encouraged me to go forward with a complete build from scratch, I'm now pausing for research and finishing the hull so it truly fits the plan, using c
