  1. Chuck, like others have said, family first. Went thru similar times with my Mom, years back. Take the time you need. The hobby stuff will wait.
  2. Like the lad says, me too. Interesting semi-kit.
  3. Lawrence, once against , well done on HMS Bounty. Your temp sounds balmy. It was 22F/-6C when I got up this AM. The wind chill made it feel like 12F. Greg, might you be thinking Master and Commander? That was a compilation of several of Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin series, starring Russel Crowe. Good flick.
  4. Elijah, your backdrop works just fine. In fact, it blocks out distractions and your closeups are excellent. Very nice work.
  5. If you're going for the lantern look, get some yello-glo leds. They look like old kerosene lanterns.
  6. I just donated, after reading all the trials and tribulations. Money well spent.
  7. Jesse, your health is job one right now. Syren will be there when you're ready. There's a bunch of us thinking about you and praying for your recovery.
  8. Well done on your base, Jack. Nifty little diorama. I'll have to keep that in mind. Like Mark said, didn't know you can get miniature seashells.
  9. Nicely done Frank. And good clear explanations, too. Like Mark says, that table is interesting.
  10. Dan, I'll tag along, too. You might check the Shapeways folks. The warships guys have done up some of the early US dreadnoughts with those lattice masts. Don't know if any liner folks have done up drawings for the Shapeways folks to print up, but I've seen those battleship lattice masts and they are sweet.
  11. Snow forecast for Saturday night into Sunday. Guess I'll be snowed in, up on my ridge-line.
  12. Len, "borrowing" stuff from your Grandkids? Tsk, tsk. But they do look good and the bell looks OK
