  1. Your Victory looks great! Are you sure you are a newbie!? Welcome. I am originally from Portsmouth, Viginia where there is a great maritime tradition including being the location of the Norfolk Naval Shipyard. I have been a follower of this website for many years and build ship models in my very limited spare time (busy physician with a big family) I have not had time to post a build log but hopefully will do so when I retire. Its a wonderful hobby!
  2. Thank you for the advice. I decided to purchase the Caldercraft kit. It arrived in four days from across the pond! Looks like a great kit. Instructions good. Plans and diagrams very thorough.
  3. Thank you. Something to think about!
  4. I am looking for advice. It seems that nearly every manufacturer offers a kit of the Endeavor. Do you have any recommendations on which to purchase, especially as regards to quality of materials and clarity of instructions. Thank you.
  5. In follow up, I used the glue stick followed by a couple of coats of artist's spray fixative. Worked great. Thanks!
  6. I am building the Mamoli Golden Hind. My kit came with the printed cardstock ornamentation rather than the older kits painted wood. Does anyone have a recommendation on the best way to glue/adhere the cardstock to the planking? White glue? Spray adhesive? Thanks
  7. Randy I am just starting the Mamoli Golden Hind. Your build log is quite an inspiration! I have a question concerning the bulkheads. How do you remove the extensions without damaging the planking? The instructions are not very helpful. Thanks and keep up the great work Steve
