maggsl_01 Posted November 16, 2013 Share #1 Posted November 16, 2013 Howdy Well - I did it: I started my first wooden model build. It took quite a time before I was sure to dare this. I build models for many years, started 40 yrs ago with platic planes etc. After a Long break I restartet with motorbikes, trucks, cars and dioramas. Especially the dioramas in the popular model train scale H0 gave me a lot of fun. I used bashed houses, my interest was the so called german "Wirtschaftswunder", the years after the war up to 1965. I am born 1960 - so ist a kind of looking back into childhood My topic was industrial life, harbour etc... with resin ships (Artitec). But for a Long Long time I am fascinated by historic model ships. Now I think I am old enough to enjoy a long time building, use and learn new techniques, improve my knowledge about ship history and understand a ship building as some kind of inner rest... I always want to know everything about the original. So I learn more about the time when the ships cruised the oceans under circumstances noone can really understand today. Thats very amazing. Now the bulidung has begun, the ship is wellknown, the kit also. I will sure ask a lot... e.g. is it better to plank the deck before or after fixing it? I will try to report regularly Thank you for your Attention Maximilian fnkershner and maddog33 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
