Hello from Maryland


Recommended Posts

Hello all. I recently joined MSW and have been lurking and reviewing various topics and build logs for the past couple of months. I recently retired and decided to get back to modeling. I grew up building plastic model cars and planes then moved to RC planes. I enjoyed building them but not crashing them. Given my experience with plastic models and a desire to learn more about ships and ship building I got back into modeling with Revell’s 1/96 Constitution. It took a bit to finish it and while I enjoyed the build working with the small plastic parts and the limitations of plastic really wet my appetite for wooden ship models. 

I received the OcCre Albatross as a present  back in 2011 and it has been sitting on the shelf since then. I opened the box in June and thought maybe plastic is not so bad. That’s when I found the MSW site. I know you all know this but this forum is fantastic. Great info, lots of sharing and suggestions. Well done to all who keep this going. 

Using the build as a guide I liked the look of Midwest’s Peterborough Canoe. Too bad Midwest is out of the ship business. I used them for all my RC plane kits and materials. Good company. I found the canoe on eBay and have just finished it. I think I am ready for the Albatross now. 

Sorry for the long intro. I will plan to start a build log for the Albatross once I get going.
