I know there are some model builders here, just wondering if any of you have experience building fairly complicated sailing ship models.
I'm in between newb and intermediate in terms of model building ability, and I want to pick up the Heller model of the HMS Victory and build it for a start of a ship display in my office to compliment the aircraft. It's 2300 pieces, and to me looks complicated as shit to build. Anyone here do something like this, or have experience in something similar? Am I biting off more than I can chew not being a pro modeler? I'd like to build some battleships, carriers, and other surface combatants as well eventually.
Due to skill (lack of) level, would I be better off buying a pre built model of Victory?
