Hello from Canada

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

My name is VERN and I’m definitely a newbi when it comes to wooden ship models. I’m currently on my second build of the Bluenose lI from Artesania Latina. My first was the AL New Viking 1/75. I managed to finish it and it turned out ok. After a lot of reading on this amazing site (wish I had found it during the build) I realize a lot of my mistakes could have been avoided.

  A brief history of my model experiences. I grew up in the plastic world of muscle car and dragster models a few planes and ships. This grew into the real world of muscle cars where I have built six cars over the past 40 years. My last car was a 1968 Beaumont complete frame off restoration that I built with my two sons. 

 I know I will need a lot of advise on the Bluenose, but after seeing all the amazing builds, and the talent out there on this site I know all my questions will be answered.

Kind Regards to all.

Hello and welcome from a fellow Canadian. I'm Nova Scotian originally, but relocated to Vancouver, BC in the fall by way of Alaska. I'm working on a Model Shipways Bluenose, myself. I love that schooner; she looks like she's going fast just sitting there.
