I’d like to present my Model Shipways, Brig Niagara I completed about 10 years ago. The model is a completely wood, (and metal fittings) plank on frame design, that took me approximately 3years to complete.
A number of years back I decided that any ship I model I’d like to board/sail on and vice-versa. So after completing the kit my wife and I sailed on the reproduction Niagara, docked in Erie, PA, near where Oliver Hazard Perry did battle on the Niagara during the Battle of Lake Erie in the the US war of 1812. A great experience and we hope to do it again sometime in the future.
Hope you enjoy. Happy modeling fellow iModelers!
