Hello from washington state


Recommended Posts

Hello from south west Washington on a nice wet day.  The Long Beach peninsula to be exact.


I took the plunge and bought my first wood boat model.  I purchased the Model Shipways Phantom for my first try.  I am a model railroader so I have built building kits.

After looking through the parts and the instructions, I am a bit intimidated so far.  I am looking forward to getting started however.

Hello John,

Welcome aboard, 

It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or an advanced builder, 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.

I wish you smooth sailing and happy modelling.

Welcome to MSW John! I too am a model railroader in addition to building model ships and many other things... It is great to have you with us and I know you will find this a great place to help you learn all those new skills and building practices that come with model ships. The Phantom makes a nice kit to learn with and there are some good build logs on here that I would recommend looking at to give you a preview and perhaps a better understanding of some of the work that will be needed.

Best of luck to you on your first build and I look forward to seeing your work!

Puget Sound Ship Modelers. we have members all over WA and a few further afield. If you share with me your email address I will include you in our newsletter mailings.
