Hi, I am working with Sergal's model of HMS Victory and I am having huge problems trying to figure out how to fit the parts for the bowsprit. The kit comes with a piece (photo) that should help hold up the bowsprit but It doesn't seem to fit. Anyone...

I'm about ready (at last) to start rigging on my Essex. One thing I've never done before is Stays with Preventer Stays and related lacing. These would seem to be an important feature in the appearance of a model with their prominent...

Glad to be onboard, tried several other social media to find other scratch builders, but that was a serious fail. I think most are like me, hiding in their shop. Glad to be where I can help if needed, or get help if needed.

While I'm new to this forum I'm an old pro at following fellow ship builders logs. I find it very inspiring!

I'm a grateful legatee of a model of the HM Yacht "The Royal Caroline." The model was constructed in 1991 by CPG that stands for, I believe, C.P. Goga. The model is exquisite - ""frame on keel", "plank on frame", ornamentation of bronzed pewter and...
