Just joined. Now that the kids have been in college  for the last few years I started building ship models as a hobby. Started with De IMG_4420.HEICAgostini Victory. Major for a beginner but the instructions were well done and learnt a lot. Have built their Soleil Royale, Constitution and my favorite, the HMS Surprise. I branched out to Caldercraft and Occre. Glad I did the earlier models as instructions are definitely sparser. I am going to start a build log of my latest start the HMS Diane . From reading the sites, it is definitely an older kit as the instructions are woefully lacking in details for certain things. I attached my 3 recent ships, HMS Agamemnon  and Snake by Caldercraft and Montanes by Occre.

The last picture was before I finished the running rigging. The completed Agamemnon can be seen next to her sister the HMS Snake. I like Caldercraft as they use the same scale for the models so you get an idea of how the ships would look next to each other  in the 18th century.
