My first build log. I have fell in love with this great hobby. It is very rewarding to see yourself build a ship from a bunch of sticks, (as the wife calls this kit). post-1262-0-04892800-1361720320_thumb.jpg                                                                                      Pic of the box                                                                                                                                              post-1262-0-40795700-1361720404_thumb.jpg                                                                                                                                                         Pic of materials                                                                                                                                       post-1262-0-13828500-1361720549_thumb.jpg

This kit does come with a stand to display your finished Mare Nostrum. I didnt like the look of the stand, looked to small. So I scratch built my own stand. My first small step into scratch building in this hobby and enjoyed it. Pics are the stand holding the hull in its new home.

Thanks for this!!!  I've been struggling with how to display one of my models and this suits the bill finely.

Hi love the pics I have just purchased the same model and will start building soon. I have never built a wooden model and really have no idea so should be interesting.can you please offer me some tips on how to get started and how the plank bender works as it looks like a pair of scissors with 1 blade? I also noticed that you are using clamps on your planks that look like bulldog clips are these something that can be purchased. Sorry for all the questions but would appreciate any help

Well I am back at the workbench finishing up the build. I decided to put on my boat a fishing net. This kit did not come with one so I came across this green material while shopping with the admiral. Also bought some colored beads to help with the look of a fishing net. Would like to know what everyone thoughts are on this idea....
