jiljilia Posted January 3, 2015 Share #1 Posted January 3, 2015 (edited) I know it's been a while since I have built or started a ship and I know I said on my last blog that it would be the "Thermopylae", but I have been desiring the "Harriet Lane". I have never built a solid hull ship and it does seem intimidating to even start, but sitting in the box collecting dust isn't going to get it done by no means. I see there are a couple people tackling this project? I wish them luck and desire that they build to completion and it be well done. Been studying the plans and have decided that I will change a couple of details, even change some of the materials so that it will stand out more. Not sure if I am going to follow the painting detail or not, I really think not as certain stains and varnishes would be more ideal... I believe? This ship will be challenging as to a scratch built ship as there are parts to be made. I will succeed but this isn't a ship that will go by fast. I haven't any pictures yet as I have only cut my stations out, but when the time comes I will show my progress.
