CaptCraig Posted January 18, 2014 Share #1 Posted January 18, 2014 (edited) Hello everyone! Welcome to my first build log on MSW! I know, it has been a long time coming. I have been on this site since before the crash. I was finally able to get a decent kit and start a build of my own. I must warn that the first month or two may be slow, as the shipyard is still being built and I am changing jobs so I can be closer to home, where my wife and children are. I will start out the log now, though as I found some time to check the inventory of the kit. I decided I would take some pictures of the contents of the kit to test my picture posting skills. Here is what I saw when I first opened the box. The paints were not part of this kit. I purchased them separately: The kit came with one big blueprint that has a few different views on it. There is also an instruction book. The instruction book stops giving instruction 3/4 of the way through the build and tells you the rest is laborious and you should look at the picture on the box to figure it out. I found most everything was wrapped well. I did not notice any warping of the wood, but that remains to be truly inspected. Again, I put the paints in there for safe keeping until I am ready to fully tackle the build: I do really like the fact that the smaller parts are packed in plastic organizers. I can use these for later builds...:-): Here are some of the laser cut parts including the knight heads, the center stair rails, and a few of the smaller walls: Here are some more walls and two of the large decks: This is the lower deck, the bulkheads, and a few more walls: Finally, I have the masts, stacks, planking, decking, and deck support timbers. I am really shocked at how small the deck supports are. They look so much bigger in everyone's photos! I think this initial post went well and it gave me a little practice with posting pictures. Please excuse the one or two photos that are not spectacular. I am just getting used to the new camera as well! Thank you all for looking, and feel free to provide input and criticisms as the build progresses. I look forward to your responses!
