Good day Model Ship World.


Well, I have been lurking here for some time now, but seeing as I have a rather ambitious project coming down the pipeline, I figured I'd make an account and start to get involved with the forums here. Everything I've seen here tells me it's a wealth of information with a great community to boot.


Anyway, a little about me; I've been building models ever since I was a kid, starting with a 1:400 RMS Titanic when I was only 7. There were several others over the years as well; warplanes and a battleship or two mostly. Thanks to life in general, I haven't been able to build a model in some years. However, I've recently been getting the itch to build again, so I decided to finally take on a project that has been hanging over me for most of my life. When I was much younger, and there was still a Mom & Pop hobby store in my town (thanks for that Hobby Lobby) I bought a sailing ship kit that was well outside my skill level. (something I realized almost as soon as I read the directions) I completed a few steps of the model, but shortly after, I ended up shelving it away for over 10 years. I'm happy it never got thrown away, because I'm finally going to pick it up again!


'What ship is it,' you wonder? Why, it's none other than Revell's 1:96 Cutty Sark!


I have been researching and making preparations to properly do this model for a fair bit of the summer and I am finally almost ready. I'm hoping to start a build log for the kit in a couple of weeks. I look forward to being a part of this community!
