The second installment of the 1/72 scale Shipyard HMS Wolf build. Shipyard’s laser-cut card model kits are all pretty amazing. Shipyard has several to choose from, ranging from early medieval coggs to the 18th century British frigate HMS Mercury. The line also includes international light houses and more.

Building the hull of this Shipyard kit is really a lot like building the hull of any of their kits in that the skeletal structure of the model is very well engineered. As with just about all Shipyard ship model kits, there is a main keel piece and a series of bulkheads, much like with any wooden ship model kit. But, Shipyard kits often then have a longitudinal piece that crossed the frames, horizontally, and often another piece that crosses most of the frames vertically as well. This kit is no different.

I might have to try one of these card kits. They look well made.
Hope you do! The laser-cut card, boxed edition kits are especially interesting, as they’re larger scale, and all the parts are pre-cut. The paper model kits are smaller at 1/96 scale and lower priced, but you just have to cut out all the little parts yourself. Very little mess in either case. Good kitchen table projects.
