Hello All!

 

Long time lurker, finally a member and building my first wooden boat model.

 

I have been a 1/35 military modeler for the past 43 years, and finally decided to make the jump to something that had really captivated me for so many years, the wooden ship miniature.

 

As my first wooden ship kit, I have selected the Panart Lancia Armata; hull has been completed, and currently in the interior rib/structure process.  As soon as I have some good pics and time to upload, will share with you for your critique.  Pice below are merely phone pics.

I have purchased already my second kit, a Model Shipways Pinnace designed by Chuck Passaro...  it seems a much mode delicate build, so it will be a nice challenge as well.

 

A pleasure, and glad to have finally made the jump!

 

Regards,

 

Jorge

Welcome aboard Jorge. Hull planking looks great.

Thanks, Jim!  Quite a learning curve from the world I com, but I chose it due to the fact that since the hull has 3 layers, I thought it would be more forgiving and solid for a first time build...  All was fun, until the final planking layer!
