finished my first ship!


Recommended Posts

Its the constructo USS Enterprise (1799).  It took 2 months (500+ hours of work)  At least over 100 errors making it! LOL.. it was really hard.. Instructions weren't too helpful  (e.g. like 1 page says plank the entire hull and shows only 2 pictures...  It was really rough to build (for me anyway).. I felt it was like a torture at some(most) times.. but in the end.. very glad I had done it! (yay!)  It was beginner try to build up experience to build the USS Constitution.. but for now going to take a break! Thanks all for all of your help!

Good Morning Bill;

 

Good work, well done for staying the course and completing your model. Let's hope that it is only the first of many, and that the enjoyment increases with each succeeding project. 

 

The standard of workmanship is greater than I managed on my first model; hats off to you!

 

All the best,

 

Mark P

Good work, welcome to the shipbuilding hobby. If you are considering a second build and would like detailed high quality instructions with plenty of photo's I would recommend you check out Amati Victory line and Vanguard kits. Both designed by Chris Watton, a member of this forum and owner of the Vanguard line.  He also designed many of the Caldercraft's static model kits.

 

regards
