Hello from Canada. Quick bio, I am retired, have been woodturning for about 35 years as a hobby. I have built lots of kit models mostly planes and HO rail items. The only ship was the USS Constitution, which languished at the rigging stage about 30 years ago. The Covid shut down led to a lot of YouTube videos mostly of folks building real sail boats “ Acorn to Arrabella” and “Restoring the Tally Ho” to mention two and some kit models ship videos. Then I stumbled on the kit for HMS Terror. Now if you are Canadian with ancestors who were Royal Navy and you loved the C.S Forester books you will understand the interest in a storied ship such as HMS Terror. What other ship of this age is sitting about 80 feet down in freezing water with all her hull and artifacts intact. So the kit has been purchased and it is right now winging its way through the U.S. Postal system to be handed over to the somewhat delay prone Canada Post. Hopefully arriving in Montreal in the next week or two. I will start a build log and begin asking questions. I have a bunch already and I am hoping to learn a lot of details about building this model from the other builders on this site. Thank you, Broden.
Hello, My name is Samuel and I am a 20 year old college student from Texas. I was gifted a wooden kit of the HMS Bounty 1:110 (Constructo) a few years back and never got around to building it because I was scared of messing it all up. Now as I am a little older I started it as an "end of summer project" and I think I am about 3 weeks in and the ship looks good so far. There is still a lot of work to do, and I know I will not be able to complete it before I head back to school in the fall. From reading a few posts here as well as various sources online I have come to a few conclusions. 1. The HMS Bounty is quite a famous ship because of the mutiny that occurred on board. 2. Constructo kits are not known for the best materials, instructions, or quality in general. (I'm making it work, so far so good) 3. This hobby is a very relaxing one for myself. (I love the water and I am a certified deep water diver) Attached you will see a photo or two of the ship in its current state on my makeshift drydock, as well as a photo of the box. Here is the link to my build log I just started.
Hi all! Just introducing myself. Im James from Nottingham in the UK, I’m a Councillor and Military and Maritime historian. I have been building models since I was a child and it’s always been an escape hobby along with sailing and boating. Mostly I build model kits rather than scratch built but that’s mainly due to time. Thanks to @Old Collingwoodfor the introduction to the site!
