Ekis, new member


Recommended Posts

I'm Ekis, 53, from France (more exactly a few kilometers from Versailles). I work in advertising.

I read this forum for many weeks now, and I often find very good information about our hobby.
I decided today to take the plunge and join you as a member.
Excuse me in advance for my English: I read it much better than I write it! image.gif.f26e12526162df5d67f3ba4dd8a9f0d2.gif
I am a fan of wood kits, especially the sailing navy 18th, but also other things if the kit is original. My current project is HMS Victory. Not that of Nelson, but the previous ship designed in 1737, wrecked in 1744.
I start from an existing kit of the Victory 1803 (AL) version, and I adapt so that it looks like the one of 1737. I respect all the rules of hulls and rigs of the 18th, but I wish a boat according to my desires also for colors and some amenities.
The thread is here: HMS Victory 1737 by ekis

Thank you for your welcome ! 😉

Gidday Ekis and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder.

You have found a fantastic site that is full of knowledge and support.

I encourage you to ask questions as and when you encounter a problem.

Your choice of model is very interesting. 

I wish you all the best in your build.
