I am a beginner at ship modeling but an experienced model builder of trains and structures used on model railroads. I work in O Scale (1:48) in model railroading. I have an old kit from Model Shipways I purchased many many years ago. It is solid hull. I have the complete kit and the optional hardward that was sold separately from the basic model. I know this is an advanced model but it is the only kit I have. The rest of the ship models I want to build will be all scratch built. I figured I should get me feet wet on the Flying Fish. In future ships I build will not be solid hull. I was looking for but can't seem to find on the internet any tutorials focused towards solid hulls. I do have a number of books on ship modeling and there is not too much on that type of hull. I also downloaded the Model Shipways tutorial but it deals with the newer kits which are not solid hull. Any advice, other than don''t do it, would be appreciated. Jay Beckham
Hi I just became a member today. This is my first model Flying Fish from Model Shipways. I plan to build to specifications . A copper hull and presented with full sail including Stunsls. I would like any modeler to make suggestions on my build. I am new and any information or guidance will be welcome. I'm sure some of my Technics will be imaginative and will invoke discussion.
