Serapis1779

As time goes by

Recommended Posts

Sometimes it is hard to fathom.

 

My name is Mark. I sign on as Serapis 1779, because it is that old Aeropiccola kit of HMS Serapis that motivated me to attempt building in wood, almost 40 years ago.

 

As a young adult and kid I built all kinds of plastic models, mainly because that was what was most easily avaible and obtainable. Back in those days there were hobby shops everywhere.

 

I describe myself as a newcomer to this group, but I just checked my profile and see that I joined in 2013. Five years have passed since then, but I resumed work on Serapis, which I bought in 1989, and didn't begin until 1997 or so and have worked on sporadically for 20 year

 

It was not until the first of April that I began working on it ever day.  Steady progress is being made.

 

I guess I had a lot of irons in the fire; other similar hobbies, priority projects, adult responsibilities, same as everyone.

 

As mentioned, I work on the Serapis every day, and visit the forum everyday.

 

I appreciate being part of this group and am grateful for all that it is possible to learn here.

Hi Mark,

I do hope you'll start a build log of your Serapis.   I vaguely remember that kit and I think I might have built it as kid.  Too many years, too many miles to remember, alas.

I fully intend to share a build log.

 

I have been taking photos at regular intervals, and making notes. I plan and hope to share them at regular intervals when there is enough to show, and not be followed by a months long interval.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
