M. Pajulahti Posted January 18, 2014 Share #1 Posted January 18, 2014 (edited) This is my first build log. I started this hobby about three years ago and here are my previous builds:Revell - Dom Fernando II e Gloria Artesania Latina - Mare Nostrum Corel - Flattie Now it felt i'm ready for something bigger, so I bought the USS Constitution. Why? Basicly it just felt like a good choice, and I like the ships of that period. Also, I wanted the best quality kit for that, so my choice was Model Shipways. It's funny, because I'm from Finland (if you don't know, it's in North Europe) and everyone around here are building just european or asian model kits. In finnish modelbuildingsite they don't even mention MS in a list of manufacturers, so I guess i'm really the only one around here who is building this. So this will be my third wooden build, but the first wooden sailing ship and first in this size. For now, it feels pretty big challenge, and I know it will very long build, but I'll always enjoyed building and thought that it's more fun if there are a lot of pieces. The kit looks excellent and i'm very happy to get started. Here are the first photos, just setting the keel pieces... Markku Edited November 9, 2014 by M.
