Hello everyone With God's help I started building the HMS Victory last week And I told myself that I must to make a build log this time I appreciate any comments and tips...thanks. Michael.
How many hours did your build take? And how experienced were you when starting said build? Hey guys, I am an absolute amatuer (don't even own tools) and have ordered the Billing Bounty as my first build in 20 years (since I was a kid). WHY you ask?.. Because it was on sale & my gf wants a nice authentic looking ship to go in her living room, and it's all about the aesthetics of the display piece for her. Not the love of seafaring or anything like that. So higher quality models it is! But a pre-built ship of this caliber would cost around AUD$1000 (way over her budget of $300), and the cheaper model kits seem to look not as refined/detailed or large. I'm very interested in how long it took all you guys, as my gf doesn't want to be waiting around for it too long. As daunting as this build looks, I do have a lot of free time over the next month or two & my housemates will no doubt develop envy (hopefully this build allows for some teamwork?). Plus there are heaps of awesome build logs I've discovered in here to help me out too (especially Steve). It won't be shipped out to me for another week, so I am still able to cancel the order if anybody has a better suggestion?
