  1. Hello moderator Chris Coyle, I am about to start a new build log and needed to get some info from my completed Hr. Ms. O19 submarine and when I entered this in the search block I got this message " Signature Restrictions" with "x Images not allowed. I tried other combinations but got the same results. I then tried using the signature list of build log links from a recent post I made as a comment to one of the builds I follow and got the same result. I tried my still active build log "VOC ship Surabaya" with the same result. This log was last used this November 13 by Amateur Jan sending me a few URL links for the model I am about to start a build log for. It appears that Jan had no problem opening it or it became unusable after that date. No access to the completed build logs would not be a disaster for me but not being able to get to my current build log will. I am at a loss how and why and no, I have not deleted anything from any of my build logs. I hope you or anyone can shed some light on this and fix this rather strange happening. With kid regards.

    I might as well chime in here. Good to hear that most fared fairly well. We, my wife Gwen and I, came through unharmed without any damage to home or property. Just a lot of tree debris from the surrounding trees in neighbor's yards. Took two days to clear our yard but we are ready to go. Were without power for two days, lost three of my koy fish, have just two left. My router took a hit and could not communicate when the power finally came back on. Used the Android phone sparingly for the in case emergency calls. My Surabaya model was safe in the garage, had no other place to store it. So yes, we lucked out. Cheers,

    Fantastic detail, no effort spared. That is what makes a model stand out. Cheers, Piet, the Flying Dutchman.

    What a beautiful representation of a true working boat. I really like the way you have rigged her. I got the feeling that she just came home and unloaded her catch of fish and is now ready for the cleanup. Ceers, Piet, the Flying Dutchman.

    Beautifully done Giorgos, especially the detailing of making it look like real working boat. Cheers, Piet, the Flying Dutchman.

    Beautifully executed model, bravo. I particularly like the flying pennant, very well done. That and the position of the sails make her seem alive. Cheers, Piet, the Flying Dutchman.
