So this is my first attempt at an online build diary. I haven't built a model in 22 years and am ready to jump back in with this beauty. Can't wait to receive my first pack and get started.

Stay tuned.

Soliel Royal Build
STAGE 1

So the first part I put hands on was the moderately warped bow section of the false keel. I ended up soaking it in hot water then placing it under heavy weight. I let it get mostly dry then proceeded to glue and clamp the hull frame.

They rest of the pack came off without a hitch.

Anxiously waiting for Pack 2 to arrive in 3 weeks.

Great to see another SR on the forum, i am sure you will enjoy the build, and she does turn into a beautiful ship.

'The wait between issues is killing me.' You say that now, but once the build starts in earnest, you'll wonder where the time went BigGrin

Looking forward to your next update.
