Recommended Posts


Thanks for the likes and comments.

Sea Hoss.. Kind of name I like :)

Hi Nils. How are you doing ?? I like the new family member Casper.  Has he started picking up bits of wood and running with them ?? .. HE will.

Building a Half Model has its challenge's. As you can imagine. :blink:

Thanks again for looking in.


Regards Antony.

Hi Anthony. 

Im a newbie helping to build a 1/12 model of Mayflower for Dartmouth’s celebration of Mayflower 400. 


So VERY interested in your experience. I read every word of your build log. Very useful. 


I see see you are also based in Devon. Perhaps we could meet up and swap notes?

Hi Robert. Did not check the post since October. 

Its been a while but she's all finished and turned out as I expected. 









































Just a little tidying of the edges and clean the dust off and she's ready to go.

Been a interesting build with Help from a lot of people from all over the globe.


Thanks for looking in.

Regards Antony.

Hi and thank you all for your reply's. 

This model was built for the Plymouth Education and resource people. 

They will use it as a display Hopefully for the Mayflower 400/401 as I think this years celebrations have been put back a year.

Its been a Fun build all the way through. And had a lot of help with obtaining plans and books relating to the build.

Its been a interesting concept build a cross section of this type. The wife thinks I should do a cross section at the same scale with all the timbers in place.. No mast.

Sounds like a good idea - assuming you are prepared to put the extra work in . . . :D
