HMS Beagle Model Ship Project
The Beagle in Ordinary (June 7, 2012)
Well it's been ten months since my last update and the Beagle is currently sitting happily on the display shelf. There were several major changes I wanted to make on her: a bilge pump, propeller, tighter rudder, waterproofed deck panels, a working gun... so many in fact that I had to do a major reassessment of the time it was going to take.
While I enjoyed and learned a lot working on the Beagle, the fact is that at 1:36 she's always going to be smaller than I really wanted. Since we now own a larger vehicle that can transport something bigger, I think it's time to take the plunge into the deep end of this hobby. So, I've decided to put my Beagle in ordinary for now while I plan out my next project.
