Barrys MFN Richelieu

It shall be my first of Barry's ship designs and my first full hull ship. When I started my first ship build for the recent contest Barry was encouraging to me to do that Zara so in a way the Zara and all them zio contest ships i built are down to Barry's words to try them and to all the other members that don't push you to do a model but offer advice when you ask. What is as I say the great thing about here the advice the encouragment to try new subjects. . What one likes about a person is when they get you to try something new and offer advice and that was just what our departed friend Barry was like.

So the ship well it is a fairly big kit over 80 pages of parts alone some on 80 gram stock to the users in the US that be normal typing paper I got all the pages to be on 80gram printed so this gives me the hull frame that i need to start anyway all this before running out of ink but i see no problem at all since its going to take a fair amount of time to get all them pages for the formers laminated and cut and assembled.

thanks guys, I have now managed to laminate all the pages for the formers and cut them out up to the part where some need to be cut for slits. then it be gluing time for a while for the hull. I think i do as much of a write up on how it goes and take photos of the stages of the opearation as well. the more photos the better really
