Soren Posted November 12, 2015 Share #1 Posted November 12, 2015 Hi, Decided to start my very first build log for my next build the HMS Pegasus. This will be my 3rd model to build. However will be a few weeks before I start the actual build, as I need to finish up the last details on my current build, Bomb vessel Granado and build a display case for it. I have promised the captain to complete my model before I start with the next one, so better stick to it (although itching to get started with the new model). I received the model kit Friday last week, however when I opened the box a few parts were missing most noticeable the figurehead and gunport pattern was not included (pretty hard to build without those parts.... But been in contact with Amati and it should hopefully be in the mail. Other than that I must say I am impressed by the overall quality of the timber and fittings. Compared to my current build from Caldercraft the Timber is defiantly an upgrade so can't wait to get cracking with the model. I am planning to build it pretty much straight out of the box, however will make my own rope and upgrade blocks with Chucks pear wood blocks. My ambition is to build it as historically accurate as I can out of the box (not planning to do any major scratch, rework etc.). As a very talented builder says 'if you don't do it right, it's just a piece of artwork and not a model'. Luckily for me there's quite a few excellent builds of this model already on this forum which I will use for reference.
