Hello, From a sometime model maker of many different subjects. I have made only one plank on bulkhead ship so far and that was 16 or so years ago. Now I would like to to do another and in a more authentic way, trying new approaches and some of the techniques that I have seen so beautifully done here.

Thanks for the membership and I hope to get started soon and meet you all in the forums.

Cheers. Richard.

Thank you all for the warm welcome.

Anja, I think my next build will be Hms Granado as someone is kindly giving me this kit, not sure which manufacturer yet as I am waiting for it to arrive.

I made Clara May 1-50 artesania kit as my first pob build and am hoping that this won't be too much of a leap forward.

I have already read quite a bit of the available material here to already learn much that I didn't know and will greatly appreciate some help with this kit.

Antony uk, I think I will be asking a lot of questions :)

Cheers to all. Richard

Thank you  Kevin Kenny, I am sure I will look them out as all the kits I have seen seem to be 1-64 scale so may have similarities that maybe relevant to my build?.

@E.J. Cheers, I am hopeful of some improvement in my builds, even it is small :).

Regards Richard
