Matthias from Berlin, Germany says Hello


Recommended Posts

I've been stranded here many times, always looking for news from model making. From today I am finally part of the Model Ship World forum.

Until my English is a little better, the Google translator should help me here.

So excuse my writing style.

 

The model building has been my companion for many years with interruptions.

A new start in 2005 in historic sailing ship model construction came to an end with the construction stop of HMS Victory by Sergal.

 

Not satisfied with the kit model, I have been building a simple fishing boat for 6 years to improve my material and tool skills. I look forward to a good time with all of you in the exchange of knowledge and practice. I already know some names here and I really like what I saw as a guest.

 

see you soon Matthias

Matthias,

 

    Welcome to MSW.  :piratebo5:

 

    I applaud your decision to stay with the hobby and go with a simpler model.  Many are attracted to the hobby by the big fancy ships, only to be easily discouraged.  I had a similar start as you.  I wanted to build HMS VICTORY and USS CONSTITUTION but I eventually went smaller/simpler and worked on my skills.  Now I am building ship types I have never heard of before and having much fun.

Hello everyone and thank you for the welcome greetings.
The fishing boat is a “Zeesboat” from the region of the European Baltic Sea.
I also found a Zeesboot from @Mirabell61 here in msw - a nice model.
I build in 1:20 scale. The fuselage and stems are made of pear wood and the metal parts are made of brass.
Starting as a test model, it has developed quite well. But there are also some mistakes

I have a construction report on the boat in other forums. Inserting this here takes a lot of time. It also needs to be translated.
If there is a lot of interest I can show it a little bit shortened. I show some impressions from the boat here. That is the current status.
See you soon Matthias
