So, a question just popped into my head. Are there wooden boat/ship model builders here too? 

There's another new member, someone who joined within the last month, who mentioned that he's working right now on a wooden model.  I know I complimented him on his courage in tackling the project.  I can't remember who it was, though.

If you have a look through the Ships forum, I think you'll find some other threads for builds.  Probably not a lot of guys consider it-kind of like the idea of building a vacuform kit.

There's also a club devoted to building wooden ship models, the Connecticut Marine Model Society.  I see their newsletters via the IPMS Region's distribution network.  Their website is at http://ctshipmodels.org/index.html  I think you'll enjoy having a look there!

Best regards,

Brad

Yes there are, just nothing going on at the moment. I have a few in the stash.

Paul, there are many wood ship builders here including yours truly as you can see by my avatar. Check out the "ships" section of the forums. Many of us build a little bit of everything and post our builds in the section for the build.

Welcome Paul. I'm ex-navy, so fond of anything that floats, I look forward to seeing your builds. Incidentaly, I live in a fishing village, so if you want some photos of working boats, give me a hoy. They may not be the same sort of boats, but they all share the same weathering.

Hello All,

My name is Paul and I am new here. I just started modeling (not counting the stuff I did as a kid). 

I'm interested in ships/boats, particularly working/fishing boats. Currentl, I am working on my first wooden build of a lobster boat. 

I look forward to learning from and contributing to this forum. 

Paul
