Good morning everyone! I am very glad to form part of this forum. My name is Alexis and I am from Almazora, a small town in the Mediterranean coast. I started modeling when I was about 12 years old. I didn't start with ship models but with house models. As time passed, I began to acquire interest in wooden ships. My first build was Artesania Latina's H.M.S Bounty's Jolly Boat, the "ideal" beginner kit. It was a very fun build and, although it has its flaws due to lack of tools and skills, I am very proud I finished it and encouraged me to continue with this amazing hobby.

My second build was Constructo's Carmen, a slightly bigger than the first but still a "small" boat. This one was more interesting to build as its deck had lots of details compared to the Jolly Boat's.

Two years ago, I bought Artesania Latina's San Francisco Cross-Section for a really good price and managed to finish it in 6 and half months. This model is an important milestone for me as I made it very carefully and with lots of details as the skills, tools and resources were very different from those I had when building the two previous kits.

This Christmas I finally got my dream model, Constructo's La Flore (also known as La Flore Ex Vestale). This will be my first "big" model and I am enjoying every step of it. I think I will make a buildlog for all of you to enjoy and for me to learn and listen all the practical advices you want to give me! I feel a bit nervous because there aren't many buildlogs of this ship. But I'm sure that with determination and help everything can be possible.

I hope to be around here for a long time and learn a lot.

Have a good day,

Alexis.

Don't be nervous as we are here to help should you need it. As for the luck of buildlogs on this particular model, no worries. It make it even more interesting and challenging. Isn't challenging part of our hobby? :)
