Good Morning, from Somerset.


Recommended Posts

Hello everybody , my name is Rory and I’m an addict plastic aircraft builder who has strayed into the world of wood. I was told about this site by a Mr James Hatch and though I’d swing by and pick some brains, ideas and tips to help with my first build. Hopefully , in time , I will be able to give something back to the forum. This is what I’m building at the moment, it is my first attempt and I’m enjoying it immensely. Helpful criticism is always welcome. Please excuse the phone photos, I’m worse at photography than I am at models.

Welcome to a 'candy store' for modelers who love their hobby/passion. Better than Willy Wonka. Don't neglect surfing the net for websites run by model kit manufacturers/sellers. There's lots to look at. BTW, your build looks good. I love the modeler's mess around it. Reminds me of home.

Welcome Rory. I noticed you appear to have used  half hitches to tie off your rigging. For a more realistic look try seizing them instead. There are several good videos on YouTube that show you how to seize. This will enhance your already well built model. You are doing a great job.

Thanks for the info, it’s one of the things I was going to ask about as I’m none to happy with the look myself, it’s an old hang over from being a Royal Engineer.

Have you had any thoughts on what you'd like to do next?

Hi, yes, not far from finishing, once I figure out a few bits and bobs and how to do some things. I saw that one company had recently released a Scottish fishing boat that has peaked my fancy but I can’t for the life of me remember who it was!
