Hi All


Recommended Posts

Hi All, 

Just wanted to introduce myself and say hi. I'm Pavel, I am from Lancaster, England. New to the hobby - been sailing for a while and all that, plus messing around with Airfix, but about three months ago I got into wooden models, and got hooked. I always knew I'd love it. You can take a boy out of a boat, but you can't take a boat out of a boy. Not without serious surgery.

So far, I've done AL's HMS Endeavour's Longboat and Virginia Schooner, and about halfway through OCCRE's Dos Amigos. Hoping to finish the latter by Xmas, and to get on with a proper long build. 

Just as an aside, I have to say I'm really glad to see such a community - I've trawled though the forum, and it's amazing how supportive and helpful the members are. Hope I'll fit in :)


Looking forward to being part of it, 


I don't have a model ship building problem. I can stop any time I want. Let me just build this another one, and then I'll stop, I promise. 


Completed: AL Endeavour longboat, AL Virginia Schooner, OcCre Dos Amigos.

In progress: BB Cutty Sark.

Welcome Pavel,


I also am a newbie that luckily landed in the right place. I have been a member of many forums for other hobbies (of which the admiral says I have too many). But I have never been among a more helpful talented group of people.


Good luck and be sure to post your builds so we can all learn together.
