  1. Hello All, This is my first build log as I am returning to this hobby after many years as I was lucky enough to be given the Red Dragon as a Christmas gift. I am looking forward to building this model and will certainly appreciate any and all comments along the way! Thanks again for all the kind welcome notes after my first post last week. Opening the box was actually a pleasant surprise as I found a neat, shrink wrapped package containing all the items, including a plastic box with all the fittings. Very different to the box mayhem that I remember from over 20 years ago when all the co
  2. Hi again and well, I coundn´t hold myself that much. 3 days after finishing my caravel I´m beginning a new project and hope you all enjoy it. Took me 3 months and some days to my last ship to be finally complete, and, today I started a new counter ^^ (not that I want to beat it). So, first thing first, I´ll say my impressions on the kit. I bought it from an e-bay auction. The box is a little bit worn, with some small scratches on the fringes. Since the kit is from the 80´s, there´s that look in it: Opening we can see a good care with pieces and wood, all arranged in a practical ma
  3. Hi all! After my last endurance with Thermopylae I will continue with something easier. And a bit different from what I think is the most beautiful ships. I started it some time ago parallel with Thermopylae so I have allready started with the second planking abd I have prepared the decks. Now it's time to start sanding the frames Soon ready for planking I will update this log with more pictures and for those of you who are beginners like me I will try to explain what I am doing and why. This far it's not much to say other than that I put back
  4. I am cheating a bit as this isn't so much a build log as a final result. After finishing my Dennis Bus I went back to a boat to see if I remembered how to do it!! I have to say I really was quite pleased with my hull and the planking this time. The kit came with horrid stick on decorations which I deliberately left off but I did line the bulwarks which the kit did not allow for. It would have looked dreadful if I hadn't. My next build is going to be a non boat plane. Yes, another Sopwith Camel 1/16 but this time I will do a log because I think I am going to need a lot of help with it !
  5. On my return ,my first thought was to do the "Marina ll" ...... but as you can see I changed my mind. When I purchased the Marina ll, I also bought this Red Dragon kit . Hobbylinc had a pretty good price on it, so I ended up getting both. Both are different from what I've been doing . The Red Dragon kit is really not an overwhelming chore, as you can see from the photos of whats in the box. I'm not complaining, after all it's not an expensive kit. I will say this though, A.L. really does a nice job of merchandising their kits. The material is decent, except for the basswood ply. I like bas
