Hi. I have just joined Model Ship World. I am currently building the Artesania Latina Cutty Sark. This is my second wooden model kit, the first was the Constructo Albatross and I learned a lot and made many mistakes on that build. I am following the kit instructions and I am building just for my own satisfaction and fun. I really am not obsessed with total historical accuracy as long as the final result looks OK.

I started the Cutty Sark in February and am progressing well. I have my own blog on blogspot, which I really just started for myself to record my progress. Not sure if I want to add one on here as well.

I have hit a few snags on the way, not least the fairly vague instructions from AL. So one reason for joining is to get tips from more experienced model builders. I am also waiting for replacement parts as there was a missing pre-cut sheet, and a duplicate of another one. Unfortunately shipping from HK to UK is at least 8 weeks atm. The missing sheet means I have quite a few part made deck fittings waiting to be finished.

Looking forward to participating in this forum and both learning and hopefully being able to also contribute.

Hello Bluntsymodels, and a warm welcome to MSW from Sussex.

What you have posted looks good, it seems you know how to overcome problems.

Hope you start a build log, that is fine even if you are already well into the build. It may be useful to the next modeller who tackles that kit.  😉
