Greeting from the Northwoods. New here

Recommended Posts

Beginner modeler here, wishing I’d started years ago as I am so far thoroughly enjoying my project. Working on a Scientific Models Yacht America.  Chose this one as I was able to buy several of these same kits on eBay for short money (back up pieces are great peace of mind for a beginner) and it did not look too difficult as the hull comes mostly complete. This forum looks like it will be a huge help and great source of inspiration.

Welcome to Model Ship World JC.  The Scientific Models Yacht America kit has been around for a long time.  This should be a nice build.  I am glad you have started a build log so that you can share your progress with us.  

Good luck on your build.
