Having completed HMS Alert, which is now safely in a case, I'm left with a kind of paper emptiness... I have plenty of projects, but I'm so accustomed to having a paper model project in the works that it just didn't seem right to not have one now. So, I've taken on the 28-gun Enterprize-class 6th rate frigate HMS Mercury. Shipyard (Vessel) makes 2 versions of HMS Mercury. One is a 1/72-scale boxed kit with laser-cut parts and all the fittings, brass cannons, resin figurehead, wooden spars, cloth sails, plus paints, brush and rigging line, etc. However, that version is a lot pricier tha
Well, I’ve done it. I started messing around with a card model from Shipyard because I was really curious about them. I didn’t mean to turn this into a real project, but I can’t help it, this thing is so frikkin’ cool! I’ve already described the kit in detail in the topic I started: here, so no point in rehashing that. I’ll just say that I’ve been distracted by this model more and more and now I might as well just get it over with and make a regular project out of it.

Hello all, I'm Alex, aged 49, living near Hannover, Germany together with my beloved wife, son and 2 dogs. Nearly since I was born I'm addicted to naval history, love research as well as model building (mainly from cardboard). Maybe you'd like to see one of my creations at Papermau Blogspot. My actual project is Revell's USS United States 1/150 (in fact it's about 1/220), shown in 1842 condition. Much of the parts I recreated from cardboard, so if you're interested I'll open a new topic for that. If you've got any questions, feel free to contact me. Best regards
Hi all, My job has major up and down swings as far as how busy I am, and sometimes I even run out of busy work. I would sit there and read through MSW thinking about my build or my upcoming builds...but what I really wanted to be doing during the down time was modeling. I purchased a card kit of a fishing boat. I have never ever built a card model, and I've seen some of the amazingly intricate work that was on the old forum....knowing I'd probably botch my first one I just grabbed a low cost one that still seemed interesting. So here it is. Of course you will see some big mis
