    Love it - Beautifully executed and a nice change of subject for a diorama - Pete PS - the lock on the door is a great micro detail in a scene of lovely details.
  2. Certainly looks the business - lovely work. Pete
  3. Hi Denis - been looking forward to another episode of this extraordinary build - beautiful work as always. Cheers Pete
  4. Get in on the start this time - great subject - Cheers Pete

    Beautiful build of an elegant subject - even looking through the close ups which are normally pretty brutal I couldn't see a hair out of place - Congratulations. PeteB
  6. Hi Michael I missed the start of your beautiful Cutter but have spent the past couple of days just taking in the craftsmanship of both the joinery and metal work. I got about a third the way through the build when I realized I wasn't going to remember the myriad of techniques you have so generously shared so I went back to the start with a pen and paper for a aide memoire. Thank you for sharing a beautiful build. Cheers Pete
  7. Hi Marsalv Can I add my congratulations to the list - even without seeing the competition it was a given that your superb work should have been rewarded as it was and I suspect Pandora will generate even more Gold wherever you choose to show it in the future. I was late to your build but have just gone through it in one sitting and intend going back through it again post by post with a pen and paper to record all the tips and techniques you have so generously shared with all of us here. I was particularly struck with your extensive use of milling to achieve the beautiful clean square edges on all of your work with no round off apparent to me at least from sanding. Look forward to your "Le Gros Ventre POF" with eager anticipation and hope to get in on the front row this time. Thank you for the hours of pleasure you have given me looking through your build and the skills you have generously shared. Regards Pete
  8. Hi Johann - been a silent admirer of your superb work through the build to date - Your rope with the weathered shade you have achieved in this last post is to my eye a superb representation of the real article - well done - Cheers Pete
  9. Thank you Johann I had imagined such a narrow width would have been distorted by the contact with blade but not so - Thank you for posting the photos by way of explanation -cheers Pete
  10. Hi archjofo - In awe of your beautiful precision wood and metal work - I've been sitting here looking at the Buoy rings and your description of how you made them - and trying to think how one cuts 1/4 mm brass sheet with a table saw?? would you be able to let a mere mortal know how you do that please - Cheers Pete
  11. At first I couldn't believe the scale of the tragedy - then to find the litany of safety defects that caused the death and injury toll to be so high arose from simple greed. Appears to be everywhere you turn now- I had difficulty reading the text messages but particularly the one from the little girl trapped in the Cinema to her Parents outside. Rest little children.

    Byrnes saw sled

    Certainly looks the business like all Jims products. I had the Tilt table on my shopping list but not sure now as Id probably get more use out of the sled. Shame it doesn't incorporate a tilt into the sled but might have a look at that myself when I can afford the freight. Thanks for the Heads Up. Cheers Pete
  13. Hi Aviaamator - As always your "Locksmith work" is terrific and mate your carronade carriage really looks the business. Never disappointed every time I look in. Cheers Pete
  14. Hi Denis - meant to mention in my last post that the texture of the rope and seizing in your post of the ships cannon are incredible. I would love to be able to get my tackle to have that weighted look of the full size rope you have managed in the render and which brings me to the 64 thousand dollar question "are you going to complete her with full rigging " ??? cheers pete
  15. Hi Amalio All your joinery is superb but I can't imagine how you are able to constantly create your deck beam scarf joints - all seamlessly fitted - love the very subtle wood tone variation just enough to show there is a joint yet not enough to draw attention, just one of those things which become visible if you look at the photos time after time as I do. Could you share with us mere mortals how you construct them - do you have a jig - mill the steps and saw between or ?? Would really appreciate a couple of photos next time you do some. Cheers Pete
