I have been interested in ships and the sea from early in high school. At that time I scratch built 1/8" scale models of Edward Allcard's 'Temptress' and Ernesto Uriburu's 'Gaucho' solely from plans and photos in their books. I sail a 1962 Flying Scot out of Amityville, LI.
I am very interested in music and have taken evening courses in music history for many years and am especially fond of Gershwin, Vaughan Williams (and English music in general) and Mozart. Also very interested in NYC history and architecture.

Status of Project:
Began planking the topsides
Current Modeling Project Description:
I've wanted to build the Sultana for many years so I'm finally getting that chance. Hopefully, with Chuck's Practicum I will do a much better job than I would have if I had started it "back then". The directions supplied with the model are very sketchy and leave a lot to be desired though the plans are quite good. This is my first kit build and I hope I'll learn a lot from it and then maybe go back to scratch built items.

Some recommended ship modeling books:
Ship Modeling Simplified
The Ship Model Builder's Assistant
Plank On Frame Models/Scale Masting & Rigging
Ship Modeling from Scratch
Ship Modeling from Stem to Stern
Planking Techniques for Model Ship Builders
