Good day my fellow modellers, I've built scale models since my early teens and also tried out some ships, but nothing more came of it. When I got a copy of the online PC-game "Naval Action" by Game-Labs, I realized, that a did want to try ship building for a second time. My dream ship was (and still is) the american-built topsail-schooner Prince de Neufchâtel from the war of 1812. I even found plans, but had to acknowledge, that building it just with passion, but without experience would lead to a terrible result. So I looked for some ship's plans to practice and found a few.
This turned out to be a very rewarding little kit. Definitely made a few mistakes along the way, but it wasn’t bad for my first model build. The directions were pretty specific and told me exactly what I needed to know to complete it. I ended up breaking the mast when I raised it up because a string was wrapped around it and I didn’t catch it until it was too late.
