  1. Thickness sander

    Also turn the piece around every other pass so that you compensate for any angulation while feeding the wood into the sander. I also sand down both faces unless one of the faces has been planed smooth.
  2. Something else to consider for the library is the CD collections of Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder. The older magazines would have serialized articles, some spanning well over a year detailing construction of specific ships or kits. This was the era before internet so these magazines were the ultimate build-logs of their time. For example, the SIS series on Mantua's 1:98 Victory was detailed enough to be published later as a ring-fold-binder book and (although not completely accurate) was instrumental in my kit bash of that kit 20 years ago.
  3. Solar Eclipse

    Unfortunately, I made plans to view the eclipse too late to get a special filter for the camera. The only pictures I was able to take were at totality so as not to damage the camera. Thanks for the likes.
  4. Solar Eclipse

    I have not had much time to devote to the workshop lately. One of the reasons had something to do with the solar eclipse we had earlier this week. We drove down to Kentucky to view the eclipse in Hopkinsville. It only took 6 1/2 hours to get there and 13 hours to get back home!
  5. Hello

    Welcome to MSW, Piotr. What other models have you built in the past?
  6. It works fine for me but some of the colors are are difficult to see against the dark gray background. Specifically the royal blue used for "special contributer" and the dark blue as seen at the bottom of Banyan's screen (If at first...). The "Start New Topic" box is also very hard to see. I am using Chrome.
  7. Starboard Stern Quarter

    Thank you, Nils. This was my first scratch ship.
  8. Hannah

    Built following Hahn's technique of upside down construction. The scale is 1:36.
