First time builder from Ashland City TN


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone.


I am George.  I'm 48 years old, and enjoy trying new things.  In the past I have taken on stained glass projects, putting together guitars, making cheese from scratch, and growing (edible...not magical) mushrooms.  I just like to try new things.


Now I am going to try my hand at building a wooden ship model.


Though tempted to go big or go home, I have decided to go with the Constructo model of Ernest Hemingway's fishing boat, Pilar.  I chose it because the planking looks straight forward, the size is relatively small, and that Hemingway was cool.


Anyway, I am sure I will have some questions over the next many weeks, and I am sure you will all be helpful.


Best regards,


George B.

Welcome aboard George,


This is a great place to learn and share tips and techniques.

When you're ready, feel free to start a buildlog.

If needed, you'll find plenty of advise, help and encouragement from everyone.


Good luck with your Pilar.


I wish you smooth sailing and happy modelling.
