Have to say I’m thrilled to find this site.  Nearing my retirement and I want to get back to modeling. Have some previous experience with ship modeling and I’m considering Model Shipways Longboat for my first project. Hope to eventually build the B Latham. I hope to be active on this site and so far I’m very impressed with the builders logs and the free exchange of tips and advice.  Thanks for the welcome

Gidday from the Land Downunder Bill.

You will find plenty of support here. Loads of advice as well. Just don't be afraid to ask. Remember there are no stupid questions just infuriating ones.

All the best with your build.

A warm welcome from Monterrey, Mexico. You will find a nice and helpful group of fellow modelers here.

There aren't but two options: do it FAST, or do it RIGHT.

You are most welcome! I was forced to retire early (veterans problems etc.) and I, too, started to reacquaint with model ship building. Now I have to time to work when I feel best and can let it sit for a while. Don't pass up model kit manufacturers' sites for pics and info.
