Hi all, having posted a couple of times, I really should introduce myself.
Been modelling on and off since childhood, but now that I'm retired I've made it nearly a full time occupation. Ships,trains,miniature furniture - mostly in wood, with excursions into metal and card. I'm currently about 3/4 through Hachette's Flying Scotsman, and collecting the Mallard partwork (must finish FS before starting that!).
Also just started a 1/192 scratch build HMS Victory - I was involved in a project some years ago to make articles from oak taken from the actual ship during restoration, and still have a few bits left, which I shall incorporate into the model.
Looking forward to lots of interesting stuff from all you experts..
Cheers
Howard

Welcome to the forum.

Nice range of models you have on the go, using the actual wood from the real victory will add a whole new level to the model. Oh not to mention the uniqueNess of it

Look forward to seeing a build diary

Regards
