Welcome home, Roger.  I'm very happy you've decided to share what photos you have with us and to continue as you complete your beautiful build.  I know she's being built from scratch but I forgot the exact scale?

 

Thank you my friend.

Roger,

 

Superb model. I assume it is done at the scale of 1/48th. Your workmanship is exceptional and the final result is stunning, although classic and museum like.

 

Bravo!

Yves

I cannot express the pleasure viewing your work brings to me.  Without slighting anyone at all, your Syren is, for me, the benchmark.

 

Hope all is well my friend.

I am with Augie on this...my all time favourite Syren!

I was hoping you would repost more photos - very inspirational. I really missed the old log. It really makes me want to re-start my Syren - although I am not very far along the build anyway.

Hi Roger,

beautiful work. I am wondering what woods you used for the various parts, i.e., frame, various planks, deck and other parts. Do you have a list you can share?

 

Thanks

Roger,

I received my Syren kit just before going on vacation with my wife to Hawaii. While there I found this website. I ended up researching all the 1.0 Syren builds along with many others in the 8 hrs a day that I spent waiting for her to get ready. Yours was one of the ones that inspired me to really get involved in this hobby. I am so glad to see you repost your photos. Your build will inspire a bunch more guys I'm sure.

Current build: US Brig Syren (MS)

Thanks for the list Roger.

I really like the contrasts your selection provides. That is the way I would like my next build to look.
