    Beautifully done! I'd really like to see some overall shots showing the completed model. Cheers, Robert
  3. Recent postings of Rogers Ship Model Collection photos got me wondering if much is known about the builders who created those masterpiece model ships -- two hundred and more years ago – as well as those in the NMM and other museums throughout the world. Their creations remarkably live on today, but what history of the builders themselves has been left behind? Did they keep any type of “build logs” or records of their work processes? What were their workshops like, etc.? The craftsmanship is astounding; I can’t imagine how they did it! No modern conveniences, power tools, etc. How long could it have taken them to build their models? Cheers, Robert
