Ok, Take II. I started a build and a build log, got very discouraged because it's a beginner's model and I found myself stymied by something new at every step, and scrapped the build log assuming I wasn't going to continue. I've taken a couple of deep breaths and am going to give it another go. Here's the image from after I assembled the frames, placed them (incorrectly) on the bottom piece, and attached the stem and transom (possibly also not quiet correctly.) I'm about one step past that and about to cross my fingers and see how planking goes.
Pictured below are the 3 models I have built in the last 3-4 years. Before that it had been decades since I last built a model & they were all plastic planes with plenty of gluey fingerprints. So I am now in the middle of building Bluejacket's schooner "Atlantic" with most of the hull and deck work done. Since I had no experience with really complicated rigging I signed up for the rigging class offered by Nic Damuck of Bluejacket Shipcrafters and am really happy I did. Great course. I like photographing different stages of my models and would like to start a build blog but have never blogged before so if anyone has any advice about that I would greatly appreciate your input. Right now blogging seems as complicated as rigging! I learned about NRG at the rigging class and am hoping it is a good resource for my many questions that are sure to arise.
