Alexisgm97 Posted August 12, 2019 Share #1 Posted August 12, 2019 Good morning everyone! I am very glad to form part of this forum. My name is Alexis and I am from Almazora, a small town in the Mediterranean coast. I started modeling when I was about 12 years old. I didn't start with ship models but with house models. As time passed, I began to acquire interest in wooden ships. My first build was Artesania Latina's H.M.S Bounty's Jolly Boat, the "ideal" beginner kit. It was a very fun build and, although it has its flaws due to lack of tools and skills, I am very proud I finished it and encouraged me to continue with this amazing hobby. My second build was Constructo's Carmen, a slightly bigger than the first but still a "small" boat. This one was more interesting to build as its deck had lots of details compared to the Jolly Boat's. Two years ago, I bought Artesania Latina's San Francisco Cross-Section for a really good price and managed to finish it in 6 and half months. This model is an important milestone for me as I made it very carefully and with lots of details as the skills, tools and resources were very different from those I had when building the two previous kits. This Christmas I finally got my dream model, Constructo's La Flore (also known as La Flore Ex Vestale). This will be my first "big" model and I am enjoying every step of it. I think I will make a buildlog for all of you to enjoy and for me to learn and listen all the practical advices you want to give me! I feel a bit nervous because there aren't many buildlogs of this ship. But I'm sure that with determination and help everything can be possible. I hope to be around here for a long time and learn a lot. Have a good day, Alexis. mtaylor, BETAQDAVE, BLACK VIKING and 3 others 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
