Nice start to your new career. You will find the Syren a breeze (so to speak for a sailing vessel). The rigging will be the biggest challenge. I did the Syren first and am working hard on the Confederacy. My Syren pictured before it went under the case.

Hi Harley

nice build on your syren😊


When I deside to go for modelships building I was thinking about wat kit to start on 

this was not simple, so after a wile I deside to go for the usf confederesy 

as large as se is  I think it may be the dummes best ting I did

I learn many things by building this and some demolition 🙈

but thats ok, learning the hard way ore learning by doing😲

but am going to take this experience in wen building the brig syren, but the hardest ting for me wil be the rigging on the syren, but thats Comes later😱
