  1. Hey all. After the untimely loss of all the data on this site I'm going back and re-doing my build log from the start. This is my first model, the HM Cutter Mermaid 1817. Its part of Modellers Shipyards' Australian Colonial Series of ships. I'll try and remember all the little hiccups I encountered throughout the build as to help others who get this kit make it without the same issues I encountered. I'll work on getting back to where I am on this build tonight on here (luckily I still have all the pictures on my computers) Cheers all Jason Tarr
  2. Hi all, With a little trepidation I'm opening a build log on my HM Cutter Mermaid kit. This is a first build, not counting the hull of an A.L. Swift model I managed to build when I was 13 or so with hardly any tools, expertise, or instructions. I was pretty impressed with myself at the time, but I'm sure it looked appalling. I used to build plastic models back then (planes and ships mostly), and had a couple of model railroads. I've had some fun doing "real sized" projects on my house (furniture finishing, trim carpentry, window restoration) but we'll see if I have any skills that
  3. Scare Bleu, yes i know starting another one. As stated I my Endeavour log I am very time poor at the moment, but I need to do something. Something, I can just sit down and model with, and not spend time sorting out what and how to do. A couple of pics it will be done as the kit is, except after looking around it appears, a binnacle needs to be added. Cheers Chris
  4. So the order has been placed and I begin the anxious await for the postie to deliver my first kit and 'how to build' DVD.
  5. Hi, this is my first build log. I decided to get into the ship modelling hobby, so I bought the Modellers Shipyard started kit, that includes the HM Cutter Mermaid, a set of basic tools, and a beginners guide to ship modelling in e-book and DVD. On the picture you can see the unboxed model kit and the tool set. I took a step further and decided to add later the sails to the model, so I also bought sail cloth, the sail plans, and an instructional DVD on the topic.
