Hi all - I have been building model ships for (too) many years - lost count of how many I've done but must be more than 30 or so, but I still hop from one foot to the other with excitement when a new kit arrives on my doorstep - I've been married for 30+ years but my wife has seen precious little of me as I spend most of my free time in my workshop at the bottom of our garden working on up to 3 models at a time. I have recently completed the Revenge (Victory Models) Grand Banks 46 (Amati) and HMV Bounty (Occre) - all decent kits and well worth doing. I am currenltly on the Mary Rose (Caldercraft) and am waiting delivery of my first kits from Model Shipways - the frigates Confederacy & Essex. I have never done a build log before but I may start one soon as the Shipway kits look to be a real challenge (so excited!!!!) Finally - I would like to thank - first SOS for allowing me to join this forum and secondly all those members who have entertained and inspired me with their own build logs over the past couple years or so.
