New to this, I thought I would buy the HMS VICTORY from Wish it's only £30, looks like it is a Chinese kit so quality unknown, but I thought a good starting place as I can make mistakes and learn while not ruining an expensive kit. I am Jeff any advice would be great
Good morning all! I was fortunate enough to happen upon this forum yesterday afternoon while I was searching for an answer to a small issue I was having with the hull of the ship I am currently constructing. It is the Virginia, an 1819 schooner wooden ship model from Artesania Latina. It is not my first build but to be fair to all present (and honest with myself) it is my first in a very long time. I did have a hand in helping a good friend with his (quite large) wooden model of the Santa Maria many years ago while I was living and working in Germany. We spent many hours modelling in his very well fitted out basement. Now I am retired and have taken up residence in the Shenandoah mountains of Virginia. We live on a 10 acre patch of land with our 3 dogs (and a cat we never see ☺) and I devote my time to landscape photography and keeping fit. My love for ship building stemmed from those hours spent with Victor in his basement all those years ago. I had promised myself that, one day I too would have a room like that just for my modelling. I have had the great fortune of meeting and marrying a woman who fully understands the male need to be able to retreat to his "Shipyard" now and again. It brings me great peace and joy when I do. So, now I am here and am hoping to draw on the no doubt limitless and boundless experience of those present. I will be posting images later (my dogs are sitting here all waiting for their walk right now) and will have a few questions too. Once I find the right forum I will be ready
