Hello Everyone,

I am an "old new modeler"!  I am waiting for my first model to arrive from Model Expo.  Due to the Covid issues, they are backed up.  I've been waiting 23 days now and it's killing me!  I've actually built several ship models back when I was a teenager.  Back then I completed the Revel plastic models for USS Constitution, HMS Victory and the big 3 foot model of Cutty Sark.  I also completed the HMS Bounty wooden kit with solid hull up to the rigging stage before heading off to college and life!  So, now 50 years later, I am newly retired and decided to get back to ship model building as a hobby.  Sailing ships and the lore of the sea is something I've always enjoyed.


Access to support information sure has changed since I was modelling on my own!  I discovered this website rather quickly and saw that this could be a great support as I get back into this hobby.  Since I am not a complete novice and I also have some woodworking skills, I decided to pick a little more intermediate model for my first build.  I ordered the Bluenose I Canadian Schooner by Model Shipways.  I have been reading a lot of the build logs that you all have posted on this site and have read through the build blog by Suburban Ship Modeler.  I think I'm ready to get this party started.  Now all I need is my kit!

Great that you're getting back to it after all this time. I think you'll find a lot of us are in the same boat (me included).


With your background in modelling you should be off to a good start - when your kit arrives! :default_wallbash:


The people here are very firendly and helpful, so don't hesitate to ask questions. And start a build log - it's the best way to get that help when needed.


And have fun with the model - that's what it's all about.

Where can I post a question regarding an issue I'm experiencing with my Bluenose build?  I don't have a build log.  Is this required? Can I just do it from here?
