MtZigg Posted May 5, 2019 Share #1 Posted May 5, 2019 Started my 1st ship.The Independence by Artesania Latina.I have been building models for ever and always wanted to do one. It was picked up from a secondhand store that was with a bunch of other stuff for $30.00 USD. To my horror but really no surprise the keel and bulwarks were gone. It almost went in the trash after seeing that awful transom plate and the price of a full kit. Thanks to DocBlake's build log and beautiful build and all the other logs I came across. I decided to buck up and get the full kit. No problem found a new kit and making templates for the missing pieces. So in the end I will have 2 of these to complete. It will be slow going for me. BUT I will finish at least one of them just because it took for ever to find anyone that completed this ship.So thanks all you never quitters. I dove right in and got off to a bad start but its salvageable. Got a few books and joined a lot of forums and have lots of good help. Looking forward to new online community friends and great talents to learn my way around the wooden ship world. It will be a few weeks till I can really get back to this got to get the garden in and a deck on the house. forgot to link to DocBlakes build here it is https://modelshipworld.com/topic/12895-independence-1775-by-docblake-artesania-latina-516-scale/ Altduck, Baker, GrandpaPhil and 3 others 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
