Re: Le Requin Xebec ZHL plank on frame kit.

Brian I probably don't need to suggest this, but I have learned over the years of model building, that assumption can be a dangerous commodity. I'm sure you will not experiment with the actual sails, but with a piece of scrap. Not intending to insult your intelligence at all. You may or may not like...

Re: Le Requin Xebec ZHL plank on frame kit.

Well Brian It is difficult to say anything about your build of the Le Requin, that hasn't already been said. You are doing beautifully. So having said that, I do believe I will share a sail and canvas tarp (model railroading), coloring idea I have used. Have no pics to prove it, but it works very we...

Perhaps the question should be...wear and tear?

Weathering Wood

Model railroaders put a lot of weathering detail into almost everything. I am no exception. But, ships are a different animal. Would any ship in the age of sail, be allowed to get to a point where paint would be cracked and peeling? Would iron work be allowed to rust? If so, where would it be seen o...

Bill, I am left handed. So, as they say of left handed people...we are in our right mind! :D Does that mean I should be a natural!

Re: The black pearl 1:41

Well, I have just been commenting on these kits in another thread. This looks to be a very nice one. I really like how you cut the planks to give more relief to the detail. Great looking step.
Great work!

Re: Santa Maria - Mantua - scale 1:50 modified kit semi scratch

I greatly admire taking something that exists and making it better by kitbashing. Been known to do some of that myself.

You are doing a fine job of it! Very nicely done...more to come later as your progress extends to completion. :)

Re: Sovereign of The Seas 1637 - Heavily modified Mantua kit

Well, I have not been posting in the forum much of late. Too many other things going on. New job at hand. Some family issues. Enough excuses. I had been reading and following your forum, just not commenting. Shame on me. This morning, I decided it was time to end my silence on building threads. You ...
