Shipbuilding starts ...

I bought a Revell 1:50 scale kit a couple of months ago before I bought the figures from Gripping Beast, I thought it was about time I got on with looking at it to see how useful it would be.

Size wize its just a bit big but otherwise OK. Comes with mast, sail, shields and oars; unfortunately no crew. First thing I decided to do was make up the hull after converting it to a waterline model - cutting bits of the hull was awkward - but eventually got it almost right; I then added a cardboard bottom and filled in any gaps with plastic wood.

Next time I'll probably buy resin ship with crew from either Gripping Beast or Old Glory - I don't think these come with masts though.

  1. Hi, probably our entry may be off topic but anyways, I have been surfing around your blog and it looks very professional. It’s obvious you know your topic

    and you appear fervent about it. I’m developing a fresh blog plus I’m struggling to make it look good, as well as offer the best quality content. I have

    learned much at your web site and also I anticipate alot more articles and will be coming back soon. Thanks you.
