Martyn. I have found that you did a Va Sloop build 2013 I think? Found your build diary on the forum. I wonder the MS's kit is same as the one you built from Art Lat or have they developed their own? I tried a Model Shipways Va Sloop and found the wood parts pathetic and fragile so just canned it. Hopefully MS will do better. I am going to attempt my first photos and build diary for this kit. Can you recall any tips from the build or things to watch out for. I read thru your build and saw where you had to alter a few items. I like the natural wood look. Really stands out against the hull.
