HMS Convulsion kit


Recommended Posts


I am presently constructing the Artesania Latina kit of HMS Bounty's jolly boat, as my first wooden ship kit. Although I have enjoyed building plastic model kits for over forty years, there are some new challenges, I find, to wooden models! For example, I have just finished my very first lanyards and deadeyes for the jolly boat. Nevertheless, it is a very enjoyable learning experience.

With this in mind, I am encouraged enough to be starting to look ahead to another wooden ship kit, once this jolly boat is finished. One kit that has really caught my eye is the Caldercraft model of the bomb ketch HMS Convulsion, which features plank on bulkhead construction, somewhat different from my jolly boat. Is this a good choice for a second model, or am I leaping too far ahead of myself?

Thanks in advance for any feedback / suggestions you can give me.

I think Convulsion would be a fine choice as a second model. The only thing to be forewarned about is that it is one of Caldercraft's early releases; those kits were rather skimpy on the instructions. But with your prior experience, you should be okay.
