Golden Star by sparrow - FINISHED - Mantua - Scale 1: 150 (First wooden ship build)


Recommended Posts

Hello and welcome to the build log of my first attempt on wooden ship modeling.

 

I was asked by a few members of this forum to re-create the build log and I finally got to it so I hope it will be useful to some people building this kit. I will mostly upload only pictures, hopefully no words will be necessary. In case you would like to ask please feel free to do that.

 

I have decided to bulid the Golden Star model that was suggested to me by a local seller of wooden ship kits. Before that I have tried to build a few plastic ship models but the wooden ships attracted me very much.

 

Build of the kit took me around 10 months and I really enjoyed the work.:)

 

So here finally are the pictures. Starting with the assembly and first layers of planking...
