  1. yea....i can't wait to find out......ordered some in february...never received...ordered from another place a few weeks ago....so we'll see what happens.....
  2. well...that's basically done....waiting for some led's from china.....probably being sent by junk....
  3. congratulations on the drat lines....a big thing out of the way ....a pretty ship she is.......
  4. absolutely right...the only way to go.....
  5. thanks fellows...just realizing how much work i still have to do and had a tiny pang of discouragement....but...i'll just attack one thing at a time and not look at the whole.
  6. ha...i figure i must have spent one or more past lifetimes on ships like these, so i'm used to making do with small spaces.......long as i can get it out of the house
  7. ok....rudder is done...masts and yards are basically done....have to make three different size cannons and the deadeyes next.....all for now....
  8. so very kind, fellows....thanks.....and that's an astute wife haha.....and she's right......for me at least, it's much easier to build big.......at least, scratch building....you can more easily shape and pick up parts between your fingers without them poping out and dropping god knows where....ha...even in this size, i must spend a substantial part of my building time, on my knees, looking for parts dropped....another reason for building big haha......amazing how a piece can drop straight down and be often nowhere to be found, expecially on a small build......i'm constantly procrastinating finishing the rigging on my confederacy, cause it's so painstaking small to work on..... but as soon as i finish the basic build of the couronne in the basement, i'll bring it up stairs in the dining area, as i have no access to the bsmt from the outside, and work on the rigging there, and, try to work on the other ship at the same time.....very litte mess to be made at this time......wife's been so helpful and supportive....bless her......... and for r/c the bigger the better, so it looks more realistic....not bobbing up and down on the waves
  9. wasn't gonna post any shots till the basic hull was finished, but i thought i'd add one here and there, cause i don't keep any records of the progress at home ....so at least it's somewhere was tired of looking at the bare side of the barn..especiall at this scale, so i added some windows...this time i use art resin which was a bit expensive but they didn't charge shipping and i oversprayed with uv protected satin urethane by minwax, and to also dull the gloss.....decided on some fancy supports for the chanels, cause i figured it's a fancy ship......added the gunport lids but not installed until i paint the insides red.....gads...my wife is keeping tabs on how much i'm spending, and it's about $2000 cdn. so far including electronics.....maybe i should have bought a kit haha....but it shouldn't be much more than that to complete...oh....i will eventually line all the windows with some leather cord or whatever you call it....for jewlery making...........getting flags printed may be a problem for a french ship ....with the british it was easy and cost little......cornwall hobbies gave me an estimate of 140 to 180 pounds.....scratch that................anyways....a la prochaine
  10. just found this.....very nice.....what is the blue that you are usning?
  11. oh my gosh.....the admiral's approval for sure
  12. coming along great....gonna be a real eye catcher when people come to visit you .... like...hello ej.....WOW!!! LOOK AT THAT BOAT!!! (i just thought that most would say boat rather than ship...but i could be wrong )
  13. wow....he's back gorgeous...so clean...so clean!......and lets repeat what i just exclaimed!!
