HM Cutter Sherbourne built by Colin Kyte

Comments:

This was my first attempt at plank on frame model ship building and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am quite pleased with the results despite the fact that during the course of building I made numerous 'small' mistakes. (Isn't it funny how, at the time the mistakes 'loom large' and yet when the model is finished you hardly notice them!).
As a beginner, it took me quite a while to understand some of the more complicated (to me anyway!) detail on the plans, so if it's of help to anybody out there, the advice to read all the plans and instructions thoroughly, several times before starting the work was really appreciated. My biggest concerns were planking the hull and the rigging. I'm happy to say that both went fairly smoothly in the end but I greatly appreciate the help I received from John Wright at JoTiKa with planking and rigging tips.
The work took about a year in the end, so that represents about £1 a week's worth of absorbing entertainment, so thanks to JoTika, I reckon that's pretty good value for money!
I am preparing for the next project now and looking at the pictures of HMS Snake submitted by Karl Hamilton-Cox, I think I've made my mind up!
I don't have any 'under construction' pictures but these completed photos may be of interest.
