Hallo and a warm welcome on board of our forum,Getting setup to start model ship way blue nose. This is my third model from them and have few problems. Looking forward to a source of info when I do.
Can smell the salt in the air
Thank you. I think Bluenose is made by a number of companies for a couple of reasons: it looks great with all of its sails set; it is relatively easy, but gives the newer modeler a chance to try a number of different modeling techniques, like planking the deck, planking the hull, making masts and sails. Yet at the same time since it is a schooner with only fore and aft sails, its rigging Is not as difficult as tall ships with square sails. As for the quality of Model Shipways over other companies, I am not sure I know. My Bluenose is MS as is Fair American, which is my current model. I found that with both models it is fun to "kit bash" (or modify) certain elements to enhance the looks, proved more realism, etc. Ji,very nice indeed. Bluenose and Bluenose II seem popular with model kit companies - is the Model Shipway one the best (detail, quality of parts, etc)?
