  3. Hi. Have you looked at cornwall model boats. They have a brand called Quarycraft. they are ready made but they do have a fare about of detail. Most are resin cast. Regards Antony.
  4. Hi As anyone used this company before ?? The quality looks OK. If so ..Do they accept PayPal ?. Many thanks. Antony.

  7. Hi Richard. Nice to have you aboard. Everyone who joins brings new methods and skill's into this forum 😊 Enjoy your voyage. Regards Antony.
  8. Hi Chuck. Very nice toutorl on component casting. I've been casting parts for some time now and this toutorl is brilliant because it deals with very small and thin parts. Can you please add the relevant parts to the Articles Database to make it easer for people to find. The only thing I would add is to use the same box to support the mould while making your castings. Lego in your case. Thumbs-up on this one from me. Regards Antony.
  9. Hi. Welcome to MSW. Nice intro.. Regards Antony.
  10. Hello Brian. Welcome to MSW. Brian please start a build log and add a few photos of your model. Have you looked at the information in the resources area. Regards Antony.
  11. Hi Glenn. Welcome to MSW. It's a good time to get stuck into another ship model with this weather we are getting. Lots of nice folks here with some fantastic builds and sound advice. Regards Antony.
  12. Hi Rod. Even the full size ships/boats develop joint leaks. My rowing boat did and at the start of the season after being laid up in the boathouse for 4 months. I just rowed it out to the sand bank and sunk her for a day.. next day pull her in and refloat her.. no more leaks for rest of season. Not to be done with your model.... Regards Antony.
  13. Hi. Very nice find B.E. Not seen that info before. Another 4 hours of reading. I like reading this sort of thing that were written in original script. Regards Antony.
  14. Hi. Putting my 2 pence worth in... I agree with the statement that INSTRUCTIONS are very important and there are a lot of new model ship suppliers trying real hard to do what's right. Just to list a few. The good news is... Yes they are getting better. It's the old company that need to redo there instructions. A good way to do this is to have someone build it and document the methods. Have seen lots of MSW members that make such a good job of there build log .. this is exactly what's wanted. But the most impressive instructions are the Deagostini model space. It's a magazine subscription company. I learnt to rig my ships by looking at the real thing and working out what each rope does. As suggested already.. Read up on a good book. And the Lady Nelson Cutter is a excellent kit with nice drawings. Enough of me ranting on. Regards Antony.
  15. Hi. Looking at the lines of the ship there are a few kits with simular lines. Or Neither of the above have the correct deck layout.. but the Mercator is most simular. Regards Antony.
