Hello from Colorado

Hi Everyone,


I've been a lurker on this forum for awhile so I decided it's time to join. I have always enjoyed the open, friendly and helpful people here. I have been modeling off and on for many years, but ship modeling has always been my ultimate passion.  I have completed the AL Harvey, the Niagara and now working on the Model Shipways Syren.  


I know there many Navy vets out there. Military skipped a generation with me, but I come from an Air Force family. Grew up around aviation and spent most of my younger years around airplanes. So how did I come to ship modeling? Maybe from living in a land locked state, but both of my daughters are Navy and while they were at USNA, I spent every chance I could get at the museum. It is quite the collection. 


Great to be here!

Hello Dave and welcome aboard,


There are several buildlogs on the brig Syren.  She is a beauiful ship.

Feel free to start a buildlog and share your experiences with us.


And of course, if needed, you'll find plenty of advise, help, and encouragement.


I wish you smooth sailing with our gallant crew.

Welcome to MSW Dave! I understand your trouble of being land locked as I share the same misfortune right next door in Kansas. Glad you decided to come out of the shadows as you will find the community richer still when you can actively participate. Best of luck to you on your Syren!
