Having a small show next month where friends and I show some achievement and as last year my 2 fighting stations were a popular one my friends request to add a little something so I decided to do a third station. And get this Model Shipways model.

Around 50pcs and instruction as for the carronade very basic

Nice little kit (nice job, Mike). Should be a fun build. I’d consider replacing the metal carriage parts with wood, but that’s just me, right Mike? I’ll follow this.
I am with you Dave, I would replace the carriages as well. In this scale, you can show nice details, though (but that just me...wait, and you - Dave) ;)

Yes it wills straight of the box not a lot of time before the show. We have 4 small tables and I want my 3 combat stations, and I must build a casing for my 3 ironclad.
So for now all othe project are put aside to prepare.

Charles,
There was a time when there was a lot of model train shows visiting Spokane (twenty minutes away) Washington. But the interest was low and they stopped touring here. Most of the hobby and toy stores are gone. And after 21 years, Sunset Junction closed it's doors. So I want to keep my hobbies going and share them with others right here, I would love see pictures when you return from your show. Maybe a trophy ?!?

:D A kit that is evaluate at + -15h by M.S. and they are on target.
Was a bit easier as I did the carronade very similar in the spring
