Welcome aboard.

This too is a first plank on frame wood model I've done. I have built several life size canoes and rowboats, never a sailing boat though so I have little to no feel for rigging and sails.

The Bluenose forum has been a tremendous collaboration of people, all working together, with so many different skillsets being contributed. Right out of the gate with the effort to translate the instructions, construction techniques, The wonderfully picture illustrated step by step build logs, different ideas, questions answered (no matter how basic or dumb sounding), history, plans, you name it, someone here has contributed to the knowledge base.

So, jump in, take the plunge. The build process is very similar to building the real thing, only in miniature. If you have problems or questions - just ask and someone will jump in to help.

And above all, patience. Just like when fitting the hull strips on a cedar strip canoe - patience is the key. The skill follows naturally.

Looking forward to your build log.

One venture that you may take in adding to your familiarity with the Bluenose is to go into the group and on the administrative page link take a look at the thread for old photos and references from the past. It is a collection of photos, books, videos, and commentary about Bluenose and things related to her including planking. Enjoy the voyage. Rich (PT-2)

Hi All,
I am in the process of building the Eisnor Bluenose (but not at 1:48) It will be at 1:96.
Having said that I would be interested in being part of this build as well. I would love to purchase a kit and be added to the list.
I did find that https://www.zhlmodel.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=198 does sell the kit..
Please send the paypal link to me and add me to the list.
Thanks!

Guy
