Excited to be here.

Recommended Posts

Hi!  I am excited that I stumbled upon this website now.  I am currently close to finishing up my first scratch model (which I will document in the log later) which is my second ship model.  The first was a small sailboat kit (photo attached). The scratch model is the USS ENGAGE (MSO 433).  ENGAGE was my first ship out of the Naval Academy, so it has a special place in my heart.  I started the model in January 2008 and I am down to the final details today.  I have attached a picture of its current state of build.  The reason it has taken over 11 years to complete is many, but now I have the time to finish this one and start on the next and I am hoping to find a lot of great advice and support here as the next one is the USS CONSTITUTION from a kit.

Welcome aboard! I built the Midwest flattie kit as my second venture into wooden models. Your scratch-build looks very well done. I for one enjoy seeing something a little different being modeled, and your personal connection to the subject makes it that much more interesting.
