  1. We are Moving

    Michael - Did you practice your 4 butt shift on that flooring? And how about the treenails?
  2. tapering masts

    I have to agree with Mike. The drill lathe is much cheaper. I use it quite a bit. I would also add that I wrap the end of the dowel with tape for 2 reasons: 1. better grip for the drill 2. less scratches
  3. best kits

    Lou - I couldn't have said it better myself. If you are in Everett. We need to meet! I am the President of the Puget Sound Ship Modelers. We hold meetings once a month. PM me with your email and I will send you a Newsletter.
  4. best kits

    Do you care about historical accuracy? If so do not build the San Felipe. This ship did not exist. If it had Spain might have won the war with England. for my money I would build either a kit from Caldercraft or something designed by Chuck. His instructions are the absolute best.
  5. Syren vs Irma

    Wow, sounds like everything worked out. Good to hear. My best to all in the path.
  6. a glutton for punishment

    ROFL, I remember the Blue Devil. I used to stand in the store just imagining all the battles I would win with her. And lets here it for Adm Burke's Eager Beavers! You could explain to her the alternatives. Such as a real boat! Tell her how Modeling will keep you home and out of trouble. She might even believe it. PS (for Oldsters who do not know) ROFL = Rolling On the Floor with Laughter
