Hello everyone!


I joined a few weeks ago, and I will start a build log soon. Im starting out on a Sergal HMS President that I got as a Christmas present as my first build. Should be a bit of a challenge judging by the instructions! Currently half way through the first round of planking, its been quite the learning curve.


I have a background in Architecture, so I have experience in making architectural models, but I have already learned so much from model ship building, I wish I had started when I was in college as alot of the techniques I have learned so far would have been very useful for architectural model making. Great forum here, glad I found it, I have learned lots of tricks from you all.


Here is the progress so far. Getting a few of the smaller bits like anchors etc. while doing the planking.


Possibly not the best model to start out with, but I like a challenge :)

Hi Simon.   First models can be , shall we say, challenging.   And yes, a log will be a big help to you.   Also, if you'll go here... there's a number of planking tutorials which go a long way in helping you plank her.   https://modelshipworld.com/forum/98-planking-downloads-and-tutorials-and-videos/
