Hello, I am John and live near Houston, Tx. I just purchased the subscription for the Soleil Royal build and am excited. Have built a few plank on frame ships, and always loved the big sailing ships. I came across this as got it right away. I will be asking stupid questions as I go along. Hope to have a meaningful exchange with other builders! Have a good one. John
