  1. Congratulations Marcus - she really turned out great - a beautiful job. Gary
  2. Very interesting build you've started here Bob - and so quickly on the heals of completing your Edwardian Launches. I hope you don't mind another head looking over your shoulder - I'll be following. Gary
  3. Hi Mark, I think it's a good call on the deck re-do - although a painful one. It would have bugged you every time you looked at it. Your model is looking great - beautiful workmanship. Gary
  4. Congratulations on the completion of Dirty Dozen Ken. It turned out just great - the diving suit is amazing. Thanks for sharing. Gary
  5. Hello Frank, What a great subject. I really enjoy working boats - and what a bonus that she is also beautiful in line. I wish you enjoyment on this build. I'll be following along and learning. Gary
  6. Congratulations on your completed launches Bob - they both turned out great. Beautiful work. Gary
  7. Thanks for the info on the brass blackening Matt. The product and your technique are going into my notebook. Thanks again. Gary
  8. Sweet work Patrick. The removable decks turned out great - and what a terrific idea. Your build is so fun to follow. Gary P.S. Do the white and blue couch pillows have zippers so you can change out the stuffing?
  9. Beautiful work Matt. Your metal work is really exceptional. What are you using to blacken the brass? (sorry if I missed it) - it's very realistic. Gary
  10. Hi Kees, Beautiful work, every aspect of it. I am so impressed with your rusting technique - so very realistic and convincing. Thanks for sharing. Gary
  11. Hello Russ, I am so glad I found your build. I am really attracted to fishing and other work boats of this era. In fact, I'm in the planning stages of a 70' sardine carrier from 1940 - and it's a similar looking vessel to your lugger. You're moving right along on this model and she's coming to life and looking great. I wish you much success with this build. Your other models are excellent BTW. I'll be quietly in the back row taking notes. Gary
  12. Hello Pat, What an interesting vessel and build this is going to be, and the progress to date is looking very nice indeed. I admire your determination in turning over every rock and going down every rabbit hole looking for information and history on this ship. That's a lot of work, but worth the effort - you're keeping history alive. I look forward to watching your groups progress. Gary
  13. Excellent work on those railings Michael. Exacting, precise and well thought out. Your restoration is so interesting to follow. Gary
