firstname.lastname@example.org Posted October 28, 2014 Share #1 Posted October 28, 2014 Well, got my kit today of the launch from Model Expo (probably the absolutely BEST and most customer oriented business I've ever seen). Skipped the intro of photographing the box/parts since you've seen many of those and all know what's inside the box. The only thing bad was two of the walnut belaying pins are broken. Just in case I need all 20 I'll talk to them tomorrow about replacements. They are quick on this kind of stuff so those will arrive well before I need them. I'm donating this to Dave's (Sawdust Dave) Wounded Warrior Project for auction so I want it to be really clean and as accurate as possible. As this is only my 1 1/2 build (didn't get the longboat completed because I got depressed about "wavy" thwarts and set it aside) I'm asking you guys to help me get this assembled well. One thing that will help is the rather large size of this model - 1:16. I will do my best to take pictures of every step as I go along and if you see something that is screwy (or gonna cause something screwy later on) PLEASE don't hesitate to tell me. I'm not a sensitive person (I've been called Spock and Sheldon(Big Bang)) and you are not going to hurt my feelings. TRUTH PLEASE - especially from the "masters" if they happen to see this build. It will be a few days before anything more shows up here - I've gotta finish at least enough of my new work table to get started, but stay tuned.
