  1. Hi all! I'm a mediocre modeller, who comes from the Gunpla realm... I'm keen to try out scale ship models, and wanted to get advice and discover new techniques... this looks like the place to get all of that! Just saying hello and introducing myself!
  2. Hello all, As most new folks here, I stumbled upon the forum a few weeks ago and have been reading through a bunch of build logs, advice and recommendations and think it's time that I introduce myself. My SO and I are both product designers with a bit of experience in woodworking, and through a combination of the current COVID situation and searching for a new hobby we came across model ship building. We've both always had a passion for fine details and craftsmanship within products, so the hobby resonated with us immediately. We also both have some expereince with "mod
  3. Hello everyone! As my screen name suggests, my name is André, and I am from sunny South Africa. Whilst thinking about a title for my introductory post, I stumbled upon an article which outlined the U.S Navy ranks. Applicably, I immediately identified with the lowest rank, Seaman Recruit, which is characterised as the following: Apprentice in training being the key take away as I seek to learn about this wonderful craft, and to draw upon the wealth of knowledge from users on this awesome site - as I am new to this hobby (discounting a few plastic aircraft
  4. Hello. I started building the Bluenose, kit from billing boats i february and searching for something online I stumbled upon this site! What a great forum and what amazingly much experience and info there is to find here! I registered back in march sometime and have been lurking around until now. I used to build RC model airplanes from balsa and plywood when I was a kid/teenager. Also plastic static models like airfix kits. I built a boat called Artur by Igra which was plank on bulkhead that I rigged with RC when I was around 13-14 years. So starting
  5. Good morning everyone! I am very glad to form part of this forum. My name is Alexis and I am from Almazora, a small town in the Mediterranean coast. I started modeling when I was about 12 years old. I didn't start with ship models but with house models. As time passed, I began to acquire interest in wooden ships. My first build was Artesania Latina's H.M.S Bounty's Jolly Boat, the "ideal" beginner kit. It was a very fun build and, although it has its flaws due to lack of tools and skills, I am very proud I finished it and encouraged me to continue with this amazing hobby. My second
  6. I just wanted to post and say hello. I am a new member in my late 20’s from the Boston area, and brand new to the ship modeling world. I have always been interested in modeling - starting at a young age with plastic car kits, and most recently gathering n-scale trains and parts for when I eventually own a home with space for a layout. That being said, model shipbuilding has (somehow) just recently caught my attention. I have ordered the 18th century longboat kit that has, from what I have seen, been built and logged on here so many times. Which is good for a beginner, I think! Lots
  7. Hello, everyone! I've been a hobby modeler for many years now, though my focus has been building and painting scale figures. I love the look of a well done wooden ship and have always wanted to try building them. A little over 20 years ago, back when I was in high school, I purchased the Model Shipways kit, the Fair American. I had high hopes, but could see I was in way over my head and never started it. I still have the kit and want to build that ship one day, but I know I need to work up to it. I think it's past time I found a good beginner kit and started working my way up to more com
  8. Sometimes it is hard to fathom. My name is Mark. I sign on as Serapis 1779, because it is that old Aeropiccola kit of HMS Serapis that motivated me to attempt building in wood, almost 40 years ago. As a young adult and kid I built all kinds of plastic models, mainly because that was what was most easily avaible and obtainable. Back in those days there were hobby shops everywhere. I describe myself as a newcomer to this group, but I just checked my profile and see that I joined in 2013. Five years have passed since then, but I resumed work on Serapis, which I
  9. Hey all, Bulwark here from Oklahoma, watching the twisters go by and oblivious to them because my mind is on this hobby now. I have had a great experience here so far. Lots of great encouragement and advice. This helps more than anything to make me want to build things. I've seen some amazing, and mind blowing work here. There is such talent gathered in this site. I am glad to be a part of it. My humble beginnings are in the gallery now and although it is some rough work, I am proud of it. I finished it, and I have two ships waiting to be build: the Bluenose II (AL) and the Red Dr
