Tamiya 1/350 scale model of the British battleship HMS King George V, as she was painted when she was serving with the British Pacific Fleet in 1945. The model itself is airbrushed, and the weathering is a combination if airbrush and dry brushing techniques.
About This Site
Me I created this website in hopes that it would be an asset to other modelers like myself.

When I started building my first wooden ship back many years ago, I did not have the guidance, nor anyone to turn for help. The model was going to take a lot of patience and time to complete. Back then, I was anxious to get it built not knowing that building ships can be a process of time, dedication, patience, endurance.

Building ship models, especially the wooden kind, is an art, and requires learning a new talent and even a new language of the ships parts and components. The manuals, instruction, and plans are all written expecting the ship modeler to already have some foundation knowledge of nautical terms.

Again, be patient and willing to stay with your ship and complete it. The next one you build will bring even more satisfaction. Yes, there will be mistakes and problems along the way, but this is all part of being an artisan.

I put this site together for you, the new Ship Modeler to learn. This site will grow and develop as I add new content.

By the way, I want to hear from you. Send me your photos of your ships so that I can post them on the new Contributors Gallery.
