Hello and welcome to the build log of my first attempt on wooden ship modeling. I was asked by a few members of this forum to re-create the build log and I finally got to it so I hope it will be useful to some people building this kit. I will mostly upload only pictures, hopefully no words will be necessary. In case you would like to ask please feel free to do that. I have decided to bulid the Golden Star model that was suggested to me by a local seller of wooden ship kits. Before that I have tried to build a few plastic ship models but the wooden ships attracted me very much. Build of the kit took me around 10 months and I really enjoyed the work. So here finally are the pictures. Starting with the assembly and first layers of planking...
I have build this sparrow and am almost finished but did not want to post before I am know it works. Wood working is no problem for me but the small scale and never build a boat before. The down load from the net and printing of the booklet no problem. Timber big problem was the timber always on back order never in stock, you get that here down under in NZ. In the end i settled for 0.8 mm in stead of 1.2 mm for the planking a bit more fragile. The manual and layout of the boat called 2 cents, because I put 2 cents under the mast.( picture later) The start was easy. I leave this for now to see how it looks like in the forum.
