blackjack40 Posted April 1, 2019 Share #1 Posted April 1, 2019 Team, I've been working on the Brig Syren for a little over a year now so I have a bit to share to bring everyone up to speed. I will break this into to several post to chronicle it from the start up to where I am now. April of 2018 I started the ship by carving the rabbit, attaching the frames and started framing our the gun ports. I immediately ran into issues here due to inexperience, I initially used CA glue extensively because it dried fast and allowed for quick progress, this also allowed for zero error which unfortunately I had plenty of. After finishing one side and about half way through the second, I was thoroughly frustrated and decided to put it down and walked away for nearly 8 months and a move across the county. This last January, I picked it back up and decided to see if I could salvage what I had. I used wood glue this time and was able to quickly finish the framing. The stern framing was uneventful thankfully. I'm sure you all can appreciate early frustration. This nearly killed the model. Thankfully, it did not. -Joe Just a army dude that likes ships Peter Bloemendaal, Mirabell61, Edwardkenway and 1 other 4 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
