Pictured below are the 3 models I have built in the last 3-4 years. Before that it had been decades since I last built a model & they were all plastic planes with plenty of gluey fingerprints.

So I am now in the middle of building Bluejacket's schooner "Atlantic" with most of the hull and deck work done. Since I had no experience with really complicated rigging I signed up for the rigging class offered by Nic Damuck of Bluejacket Shipcrafters and am really happy I did. Great course. I like photographing different stages of my models and would like to start a build blog but have never blogged before so if anyone has any advice about that I would greatly appreciate your input. Right now blogging seems as complicated as rigging! 

I learned about NRG at the rigging class and am hoping it is a good resource for my many questions that are sure to arise.

Welcome to MSW, Jerry.


As Chris said, there is no formality to a log.   Show what you're building as you build it is about it.  Asking questions in the log is the best way as your log is reference for answers.

Gidday Jerry and a warm welcome from the Land Downunder.

You have joined a fantastic site where the members possess much knowledge and expertise.

Most members will give both freely.

I wholeheartedly second your comment re asking questions. This is how we can share experiences and provide solutions, or at least ideas that lead to them. I like the standard of your models and I still experience " gluey fingerprints" on occasion.

I wish you all the best in your endeavours,
