Another noob


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I've been eyeing up wooden ship kits for years and now, with thanks to Santa, I'll  be making a start on the Bounty (Constructo) at some point in the next couple of weeks. I know nothing whatsoever about building wooden ships so I've been doing a lot of research today (starting here), and am looking forward to starting the build.

Welcome to MSW scipios.


Do a search, and you'll find several build logs for your ship.   I suggest using the "Advanced Search" and the key words "bounty" and "constructo" and pick "Content titles only".  Browse through the other sub-forums such as the Shop Notes..." as there is a wealth of knowledge here.  When you're ready, open a build log as it's the best way to get help, encouragement, and also to help others.
