Hello everybody,
I am "acho" from Bulgaria. Just a new member. I am 65 old end I am now retired. My hobby from childhood is model sipbuilding. In teen age I was very activ competitor in national and European competitions. Later, I stopped working, pocked with my education, and later on because of professional employment. I am professional naval architect. Now I have enough time to get back to my hobby. As a begining I'm interested in where I can get the necessary information or semi-finished kits of antique ships, to get started. I would be grateful if someone help me.

You have a very interesting background, acho! Many here will be willing to help, but I agree with Uwe about needing more information about what you’re looking for!

Hi Acho,
Welcome to the site.
If you are looking for information to scratch build a model, I would recommend a monograph from Ancre https://ancre.fr/en/13-monograph .
For a kit I would recommend reviewing a few of the SOS Build Logs from Kits – Wood at this site and if you see a model you would like to build ask the builder where he obtained his kit.
