Ship modeler and HSPMS member Clare Hess reports on his experiences building a “boxed edition” kit from the Polish paper model kit manufacturer Shipyard. These particular kits feature all parts pre-laser cut from card stock.
At this point in my build of Shipyard’s 1/72-scale laser-cut card model of the 10-gun snow-rigged sloop of war HMS Wolf, I’m behind on keeping my build log up to date. But, I can’t let that get in the way here. Here’s the thing, I am so in awe of how incredible this kit is, that I have to state, categorically, that I’m absolutely building not only the Papegojan kit I have, but the HMS Alert kit, and the Le Coureur kit, and that I’m absolutely going to find the money to buy and build the HMS Mercury kit.
