Hello from Nebraska

Recommended Posts

Hello my name is Zack and I have started learning to build model ships. My primary interest lies in Age of Sails ships. I have completed a 1/196 USS Constitution by Revel. It was a fun build but I am really interested in building wood model ships. I have started my first wood kit, the 18th Century Longboat by Model Expo. I got the combo which included tools, paint etc. I guess I assumed it being a combo, it would be a good first model. After receiving the kit and doing some research, I realized most consider it to be an intermediate to advanced level due to it small size. Should be interesting if nothing else.


I am from Lincoln, NE and as we are about as far from water as can be there is not much interest or knowledge locally regarding ship models. I hope that I can use this forum/website to get some good advice that I do not have available locally.

Welcome to a site which satisfies. Go after the kit. ModelExpo provides parts free if you muck them up so the parts list is important. Since I live in Minnesota, I, too, am far from big water although I did fly over an ocean when I had a job as an armyman in the early '70s.
