  1. We're starting to get the annoying little, every other day, "should I shovel or not" snows. They'll accumulate for about 6-8 inches with some ice pack, and then we'll get the first big dump in a couple weeks. Joy. <<Reaches for the "Retire in Panama" brochures.>>
  2. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    For those of you who live in the southern regions and say something like, "I miss winter," or "I would like a snowy Christmas," here's a little psychiatric intervention: 1. Realize that TAB does not mean TAB while writing a post 2. Take a deep breath 3. THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE SAYING!!!!!!! 4. Let the feeling pass. 5. Walk outside without the air hurting your face and enjoy it.

    So what are you planning the second week? Welcome aboard! Careful, though, Hunching over tiny little bits of wood and paint can become addictive!
  4. Newby with grand plans

    Welcome, Keith! Just hop right in and wallow in it! There is no right or wrong way to get started other than to get started.
  5. I baaaack!

    Yeah, I was trying to figure out what they were talking about with one set of instructions and finally decided that what they were trying to say was that I was supposed to slice the planking lengthwise to fit in the gaps left by the placement of the full sized planks on either side. Doesn't help that the materials lists are all in Italian.
  6. Just like in school!

    I have been chipping away at that very same model for many years and am finally gaining steam on it. I didn't try others so much as just fiddle with other miniature endeavors like role playing figurines, etc. The main advice I'd reiterate is to always be reading ahead. I have yet to find the instructions on planking the decks for the main deck, but I'm sure they are there and will make perfect sense. You just have to get used to reading instructions that have from German directly translated been.

    Welcome, Dooder! As my Grandma used to say, "If you don't fall head first into the cess pit, you'll never learn how to swim!". Strange woman, my grandma. The folks here are all great at helping you through the scratchy bits, so don't hesitate to ask for help!
  8. I baaaack!

    Maybe I wasn't missed that much, but I'm back after a couple months absence. My company got freaked out about the ransom ware scare last spring and cut off all internet acess not business related for all summer and fall. They just instituted a new protocol for access and we can once again get back on line. So here I am. Of course, it's my turn tonight to go out and purchase the goat tonight and don't ask what they want us to do with the hamsters... Not much done with the Victory model, as summer is my season to do outside stuff and I just now got back to the fun things indoors. Starting to put the cladding on the hull now. One question... Is it just Momoli, or are all model instructions written as if they were German translated directly from?
