Hello All

I am new to ship building I have always wanted to start doing it but I've had other priorities. I am 50 now and I am finally doing it. I have always built things but I know this will be a challenge. I am starting with the Sultana but I had to stop because I was careless and I put the hull templates on my office chair and my puppy had fun with them. I am currently trying to locate or get replacement templates, I have called model shipways and they said they will send them out but it has been 3 weeks.

Sorry for going on, anyways I am looking forward to getting going it will be challenging and fun at the same time.

Welcome to MSW, Randy.  I'd suggest calling them again as your request might have fallen through the cracks, so to speak.

Welcome, Randy!


I am 51, and also New to the hobby!  I also am building the HMS Sultana.  I’m sure you know there is a great practicum with pictures by Chuck Passaro on this kit.  I hope you take the opportunity to read it before jumping in the the bulkhead work.  I am following this as the main guide for achieving my first completion but it can be challenging. 


Please see see my log on my current (slow...) build of my Sultana!


I will look forward to your build!  Please take time to start a log as the folks here have some awesome experience to share.  I hope you enjoy the hobby!
