  1. I'm not saying that it's impossible to get a good quality cheap tool but usually you get what you pay for. And it definitely pays to make an investment in a better tool.
  2. Thanks for keeping us up-to-date on this. This location is really nice. Especially for aviation buffs. I think it is probably better than the one downtown on the mall at least in my opinion.

    The Longboat is a pretty popular build. That means there is a 'boatload' of tip tricks and pitfalls documented here on the site. Lots of people willing to help. Looking forward to you build.

    Welcome, and don't worry about the language issue. We have plenty of people around here who don't speak English as primary language. When you're comfortable after looking around a while feel free to start a log of your current build. We would love to see it.
  5. Just received the "homework" and the instructions look easy enough to follow. Looking forward to getting this done in the next few days.
  6. What have you received today?

    Out of the 4 of them I really like this one the best.
  7. That's great news Kurt. Honestly other than that short disk at the back of Legacy of a Ship Model book I haven't had a need for a disk drive in the last eight years.
  8. The biggest problem I have is both my desktop and laptop do not have drives in them. Would have to scrounge up an external to use those cd's. I agree with Kurt on the Shop Notes.
  9. Wolfram zu Mondfeld passed away

    Sad news. His book was(is) definitely a inspiring introduction to this great hobby.
  10. I feel so lucky that I was able to see this in 2006 before it went into storage. Although all of my pictures are from a very inexpensive digital camera so they are not that good. Still, going through them gives a good overview of the ship.
  11. The Mastini, Roth and zu Mondfeld books are a great start. I really like "The Anatomy of Nelson's Ships" by C Nepean Longridge. It was one of my first books and does a great job of detailing that build and it includes a bunch of fold out plans which is nice. edit: The Art of Ship Modeling can be found along with many other great books at ANCRE some available in multiple languages.
  12. 😄 Just completed the Downton Abbey series with my wife.
  13. That would be very interesting!
  14. Never letting a chance go by to expand my library I did get a copy off Amazon a while back. It is really nicely produced with very detailed photos. There are many close up photos to see the intricate details. Subjects in the book are from collections around the world. Interesting not too much info on the collection in Annapolis Naval Academy. Overall a really nice addition to the collection.
