Hello from Missouri

Hello everyone. 

Well the model ship building bug as has struck me again.  Back in the late 70's I first saw the Revell 1/96 scale model of the constitution, I just fell in love with it. It took a year or so before I bought it. I started it and was almost done with the standing rigging when I met a girl. I never got to finish it, but have been thinking about it ever since. 

Well, after finding this and many other web sites, about model ship building. I have decided to finally finish it. So yesterday I ordered it. I will dedicate this fall and winter to building it.  My plan is to fallow along with Andymecks build log, and others.

It should arrive this Friday, and I will start my build log after that.

I am really looking forward to this,

 

Also where do I post questions? I have a few questions about what glue's to use, Should I just go ahead and start the build log, and ask there?

Welcome to MSW, Ozark.

 

By all means, start a build log.  It'll be the best way to get help and encouragement with the build.

 

As for general questions like glue... there's a plastic area here:  https://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/forum/58-general-ship-model-kit-discussions/

And for tech type questions or research there's here:https://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/forum/12-shop-notes-ship-modeling-tips-techniques-and-research/

And there's an index which would point you to other builds: 

 

 

Explore the site, use the search function (upper right hand corner).  Once you're comfy, ask away...

Welcome to MSW from a fellow Missourian. There aren't that many of us here. I got my start in model shipbuilding with the smaller Revell Constitution (1:196?), which still sits on a shelf in my office even though my skills have developed well beyond it. I hope you enjoy diving back into this hobby.

Thanks for replying,

The model arrived yesterday a few days early. It caught me off guard because I do not have my hobby area ready to build it. I need to box up all my RC car stuff to make room to build the model.

 

I will start a log this week end.

 

see you soon Ozark

Hello from the land of flatboats! The Revell Conny was my first build in 1969-70. What a great model to start with. I have the kit in my inventory for a build when my grandson is old enough to understand. Till then we are on U Gears from modelexpo.

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.
