I haven't received the kit yet but this is what it's supposed to be. I posed this on the new member forum: Hi everyone I'm brand new to this hobby. I was browsing the internet and ran across a wooden kit of a Snipe and ordered it. My history is up until I was a teenager every Sunday we would go to the sailing club, on the lake, after church and sail with my step father in a regatta on board his Snipe. It reached a point it needed to be worked on (dry rot) and I tried my hand at it and failed. So this kit has special meaning to me. With that being said I'm wondering if I should start with an easier kit? Does anyone out there have experience with a Dumas, Snipe #1122? I don't even know what type of glue to use. Looking forward to hearing from someone. Thank you all for the encouragement. I did order a how to build wooden models for beginners, and am hoping that helps. I totally read thru DRW's build and the thing that troubled me is in his post #3 where he was glad he didn't start with this one. This boat has sentimental value to me but I suppose I can build another one to match my step-father's snipe.
Hello, This is my first build to post on MSW. It's my 4th boat (can't really call them ships yet) in my self desiged ship modeling course. My goal is to start the MS Bluenose 1:64 kit that's been sitting on my shelf for year teasing me... "come on, I dare you, I'll shred your ego into pieces". The first three were small Midwest kits intended to learn the art of planking. This one is intended to get a feel for rigging. I figured how much simpler can rigging get than a small sailboat? So the box. from looking at other threads, this seems to be an old sea salt tradition. unfortunately my picture was not taken "fresh" so it's a closed box shot but... what can I say.
