A model made of wood? I can't do anything like that. :p I don't have the skills or the equipment. No, no, I'll stick to cardboard! :)
But I'm not quite sure yet which model it will be. I have a few kits lying around, and there is already a favorite. But that will not be revealed yet. First I'll finish the Mercury, then we'll see. Or, as Killick says in THE film: "Food is ready when it's ready - not before." :D


Wow Bonden, that’s a surprise for me.
Even though I’m sort of new getting to know all of the guys, I thought you also build wood models.
If you have the talent of converting cardboard into master pieces, I have no doubt you can tackle wood.

Where could I browse to see what’s available on type of kits?
Do you have a favorite website ?
I got this kit from the polish company Shipyard; also the Papegojan I built before is from this company. Also from this supplier I have the fleet of Columbus to lie.
Comparable is Shipworks, a Russian supplier of cardboard kits for sailing ships. The brig Olimp is already in my cupboard.
When I'm done with the Mercury, I'll build either the Columbus fleet or the brig. I don't know exactly what will go on the workbench first.

Thanks Binden for those links.
Nice looking and interesting model’s they have.
I will research this new aspect of the ship modeling and maybe one day I’ll give it a try.

Bonden,

Great job and congratulations on the completion of your HMS Mercury! Thank you for posting all the beautiful build photos and sharing the construction of this kit with us. It has been an inspiration and very helpful to me as I build my Shipyard 1/96 scale HMS Enterprise. I only hope mine comes out half as well as yours. I look forward to seeing what you build next. Happy Belated Birthday!

Hello friends, thank you very much for your nice congratulations on my birthday! I was very happy about it. @Jimsky And your congratulations even came in German - what a nice surprise! :)

@Pgtaylorart Thanks for your kind words about my Mercury - but it's not quite ready yet. I still have to invest a little bit of work. And of course report about it here. ;)

many greetings

Bonden
