Aldo,

You look to be on the right path to greatness.  :)  Looking really good and you seem to have a good handle on the rework of those aft bulkheads.

Thanks for the kind words, Mobbsie, Mark, Larry, Grant, and Guy, I appreciate it :)

 

I think I read somewhere that there is a thin line between bravery and stupidity, I'll know which of these two applies to me once I

plank this crazy attempt at modifying my hull  :D

Good Morning 'Mr. Scratch Builder',

 

I'm wondering if you'll still accept kudos from the "lite side" of the forum? ;)  

 

But seriously Aldo, your Triton is looking great!  There's no doubt you were ready for a full scratch, and I look forward to watching her take shape.

 

Cheers,

Robert

Hi Aldo,

 

That looks like ..scratch building stuff.

Great job till now!

Anja is asking why I'm not doing such a thing.

I'll wait till you are finished and see how it goes  :)

Watch out what you are doing because I'm sitting at the left side of you to see what you are doing.

Any change that I can get a cup of coffee over here?

Hi guys,

 

@Larry: no problem, mate, glad to be of help :)

 

@Sjors: Sure my friend, I've reserved some front seats for you, would you prefer brewed coffee or instant ;)

              I have no doubt you can do this kind of stuff my friend, with your excellent modelling skills and neat set of tools, I know you

              can cross over to the dark side without any problem :)

Hi aldo,

 

Some front SEATS?????

I need only one…. I'm not that fat,more skinny  :(

I prefer brewed coffee with milk and sugar please….thank you.

The dark side,,, first the Le mirage and the San Ildefonso.

Then the Agnamemnon, because my friend Mobbsie is building her and I have ask him if he want to be my teacher  :D

And after that….maybe I take a sniff to the dark side!

Aldo,

 

Insanity and bravery are in the eyes of the beholder.  Hmm... let's do a quick look around and see who's watching, shall we?   I guess we're not insane after all and neither is anyone else here.  I'm glad we got that settled. ;)

Hehehe don't worry Sjors, my friend, the many seats are for you as well as the rest of the gang ;) I think I saw a picture of your DHL Package in Anja's log, so I guess it won't be long now before you start building Agamemnon  B)

Aldo,

 

That DHL package was for Mobbsie.

He want some rope from Morope and when we buy it, it was cheaper then  Morope have to send it to England.

And because we went to England , we could bring it with us.

But it is really great rope.

When I started the Aggy, I know exactly what I need  :D

Ah, I see, I'm pleased to know that our friend Mobbsie has switched to this beautiful rope :) Silly me, I almost forgot that you could just bring Aggy in your airline baggage :P Looking forward to watching you take on this beautiful ship, my friend B)

We went by boat Aldo  :D

We live for 20 minutes by train from the boat and Mobbsie lives 15 walking minutes away from the boat…..

Maybe next year we go again to England and pick up the Aggy  :D

Woah Aldo!!!

Plunged into the darkside I see. When I grow up I'll maybe join you there...

You'll do a fine job I'm sure. Just take time to visit us who is still lingering on the lighter side of life :D

Thanks for dropping by, as well as the vote of confidence, Eric, this is actually more of the "gray side" as I'll probably be adapting kit parts for most of my fittings/guns  :D

Of course I will never get tired of visiting you guys, I draw my inspiration from your beautiful builds my friend  ;)
