While showing my grandson the Zebulon B. Vance progress I gave him my magnifiers and let him trim a PE stanchion. Since he's a first rate Lego constructor he did an admirable job of trimming, but finished with a question about whether anyone makes a kit with bigger pieces for beginners. I jumped onto Bluejacket's web page after he left and found the perfect answer, the Skiff wooden kit. Big, with not too many pieces to help ensure a timely and successful finish. When I revealed it to him he said a great idea would be for us to have a blog(!) to see if anyone is interested and to see where and how far away the other shipbuilders live. So this will be an on again, off again build dependent upon how often we can steal him from Mom and Dad for an overnight visit. The goal is to have Legodude (his choice) do the building with guidance limited to explaining the instructions and how to read a drawing.
Just started my first square rigger kit. Very excited about the information on this site. Thanks ahead for all the advice. Here is the frame. Painted white for light and added a stained lower deck. More to post tomorrow after I get working on the captains quarters,
