Hope i am doing all this correct, it is my first build log. First time i worked on a wooden ship sites like this did not exist. This will not be a fast build, my wife will be having back surgery and the grandkids have just moved closer, so please bear with me. I do plan on getting the grandkids a model for them to work on as well, fingers crossed on that one. I have just finished with the dry fit and have now glued bulkhead frames to the keel. Hope you guys like what you see as I move along. I am very much looking forward to seeing my progress as well. Doug
A recent search on how to 'tie' rigging on model ships brought me to Model Ship World and the wealth of knowledge of its members. The information posted on this web site, along with other sources on the Internet has enabled me to finish my first model ship. So to all of you, 'thanks!!' One thing I did notice was no mention of the ship I built, and only a brief mention of the manufacturer, the Mary Byrne, manufactured by Modellers Shipyard in Australia. So I thought over the next few days (whilst watching the cricket!) I would recount in a build log my experiences with this model. Photo is from the web; my build is not quite that good.
