Back to the Shipyard

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I am returning to wooded ship building  and to that Modelshipworld forum. I am still working on a Mamoli Hms Beagle kit I purchase some years ago. Like every one know that model is not a real reproduction of the Beagle. The model is a Bounty with a look of the Beagle. So I decide to use the wood of the kit and scratch build a more accurate version of the HMS Beagle at 1/72 scale.  I am from Canada.

Hello Dravas76 and welcome aboard,


Can you please tell us your name?


When you're ready, feel free to start a buildlog.
This is a great site for learning/sharing tips and techniques.
If needed, you'll find plenty of help, advise and encouragement from everyone. 


Enjoy your stay here and good luck with your build.


I wish you smooth sailing and happy modelling.





Those we loved but lost are no longer where they were, but are always where we are.

Thanks Anja

Sorry, My name is Michel.  Yes the site is a greater source of knowledge from experience builder. I notice that few years ago.


Right now I am using the Chuck Passaro - MS Brig Syren Prototype Build as reference. The document Chuck create help a lot. I can fallow the different stage of the build and adapted to my build.
