HMS Fly by Brian100 - Victory Models

Recommended Posts

HMS Fly has just arrived. This build will be very much like the Pegasus build as the false keel and bulkheads are now made of mdf rather than plywood. I am now going to check through everything to make sure nothing is missing. I will start on the build in the next couple of days.

Here's the list of links to Fly build logs.  The last one is by some doofus who started his almost nine years ago and keeps letting other projects get in the way of finishing it.  ;)

Hi everyone, sorry not been on for a while but I look after a lady who is disabled after suffering a stroke, so her need come before ship building.

I have managed to do a dry fit of the bulkheads and decks and hope to get started on cutting the rabbits in the next couple of days.

Hi everyone, it's been a while since I started this project, but as I mentioned in a previous post I look after a disabled lady so ship building comes second to her needs, fortunately things have improved so I am going to make a start on building this Swan Class ship in the next few days. I look forward to posting my progress.
