    First i want to introduce myself i am a 47 year old male retired from the Air Force and on disability i do not work per se a regular job just commissions on my artwork and computer work. So i have a lot of time on my hands i first got turned on to paper modeling from the other hobbies i have namely wooden/plastic ship modeling another site has a section on paper card models and i read through a few build logs there and i thought it would be cool to try this out. So i have been here everyday sometimes s few times a day reading gathering the data (how to) so i got myself dander up and said i am going to do it so i went on ebay (do not freak out people) i got a real kit (book) from a guy on there of the Maly 1/200 "Victory" here is a pic of the kit below?. I have made a small table for me to work on and gathered the tools needed and have laid out the initial bulkheads and bulkhead formers for the ship but have yet to cut them out. perhaps in a day or so as my hands do not work real well and i have to work a little at a time and then rest...nerve damage. so bear with me the adventure begins.

    Oh this will be fun to watch... I've been hoping for a new sailing build thread in here ever since gippolot finished his terrestrial voyager... I'm looking forward to seeing how you go with the rigging, not to mention all the little details leading up to that... good luck with it.

    Am encouraging you all the way on this one Doc. :wave:

    I bought this kit/booklet, as it is such a nice piece of art, and looks likely to make a great model of the Victory.

    Looking forward to your posts.

    You just drank WHAT? Sorry, couldn't resist. Welcome to our den of madness. We can't afford to get caught...they'll take away our scissors. Keeps some of us from going overboard. I'm looking forward to seeing this build. I've just started a little sidewheeler for a contest we've got going here.
    I'm intimidated by the big sailing ships. I'm also retired military, amoung other things.
