Ok, so this will be my first build. I have decided to go with the 18th Century Longboat due to price, no rigging to really worry about, and the fact that there are so many really good build logs on here to assist me. Please forgive that I am already a little ways into the build at the time of my starting this log. I was not sure I wanted to do a build log on my first build, but I figured it would be a really good way for me to learn from all of your feedback and advice. So here goes. I used legos' to square up my bulkheads when attaching them to the keel (please correct me if I use the wrong terminology, still learning), it worked pretty well. I did break the small piece off of the keel, hopefully my repair is done well enough that it does not cause me problems down the road. The only question I have at this point is I read in one of the build logs that the top of the bulkheads should not make a sweeping arc but should be all at the same height, but I looked at several build logs and it appears that mine sweep like many others do. Input please. I want this build to be as good as I can make it, I am very detailed and truly a bit OCD with anything I do, serves me well as a quality engineer. Thanks ahead of time for all your feedback as I go through this first build, I have a lot to learn. Installed software to get pics from iphone to computer, have to restart, so pictures will follow shortly.
