Hello from Oregon


Recommended Posts

Hello,

      I am newly interested in building ships. I have mostly built 1/35 military kits, including resin and photo-etch. Also some mecha kits. Until recently I was not that interested in ship building. Then my brother died and I inherited his collection. He had a lot of ship kits in his collection and I decided to try and build at least one. I read the article on choosing your first kit and some of it I had already thought of. I don't think I have a lot of patience for doing a lot of rigging, so all those are out.  I have narrowed my choices of first kit to the Mantua Models Caeser or the Amati Egyptian Ship. Both look fairly simple to me. I would be interested in hearing other peoples opinion on them. I think though, for my first foray into wood kits I am going to build the Mantua Models Norman Catapult to get some experience working with wood. 

 

Thanks for reading,

Chris

Hi Chris,

Welcome to MSW from southern Oregon.  I''m sorry to hear of your loss.  

 

I check our index and there's no logs for either of those.  Which ever you decide, feel free to start a build log.  The ships would go in the Build Logs for Kits area and the catapult would go into Non-ship Models area in Shore Leave.

Deep in the kit logs there's a kit bash of an Amati Egyptian ship by Nikiforos, I don't know wether it's the one you're thinking of building though.

 Egyptian "Byblos-Ship" trader by Nikiforos - Amati - 1/50th - bash
