  1. You did a great job on this ship with many details. I like the way you explain everything in the 'Show and Tell' session in our club meeting. Marcus
  2. Today I have started Version 3 and it looks so much better (but then I had lots of practice with v.1 and v.2). Frames have been cut and half the boat frames have been glued together and they are in a large clamp. I obsessed with exactness of the fames but will no longer that as once I have all the frames glued together and all the sanding is done it will look good. Pictures will follow. Marcus
  3. Cool!!! You are so inventive. Overtime, you will have every part available for ship building. It will be the "One Stop Shop" by Chuck. Marcus
  4. Hi Chuck,

    Do you scan every new journal once it is published and make it available as a PDF for purchase or do you wait until you have several years and create a CD?

    I am interested in purchasing separate articles that are not on the CD's which are available on the NRG site.

    I have gone completely digital when it comes to Journals.  Das Logbuch (German) and a Dutch journal are available in both paper and digital format and I purchase from those sites , the articles I am interested in. 


    I am not interested in every article in every journal that I have subscriptions with.


    Thank you in advance for answering.




  5. Here is part 2 of Carving from The German Nautical Journal, 'Das Logbuch'. The subject is a female and male figure. Again, worth a look. Be forewarned there are pictures of anatomically correct male and female drawings. (I hope no one will be offended). If you want the translation you can always use the translation add-on in Firefox and Chrome. Marc
  6. Same temperature here, Jack. It is weird. This will be the first year where early, mid & late daffodils will be blooming together. It is going to look very interesting. I also planted my snow peas already and they are sprouting. Asparagus are showing there tips. Early food year. Marcus
  7. I knew him from the Nautical Research and Model Ship Society – Westmont, IL. I took over his position as secretary in this club. He helped me get started and gave me some tips of what to do. He will be missed. Marcus
  8. I love this. It is so very small. Great work.
  9. Hi Patrick, So what kind of weather are you having besides the opposite of us? Heat waves? Monsoons? Marcus
  10. THIS IS SOOOOO WRONG............................. All my crocus and Winter aconites are flowering a month earlier this year. It is freaky. Marcus
  11. Beautiful (Heel Mooi). I like how you did the little head carvings. Marcus
  12. The Catboat is completed and waiting to be shipped to Prince Edward Island. Enjoyed building this kit. Next I will decide to either continue the Utrecht or build me a garden windmill. Thank for all the constructive suggestions everyone gave me in building this kit and thanks for watching. (Upon leaving the workshop, please put the chairs back and clean up after yourself) Marc
  13. I like how it looks as well as the layout and how it works when icons/buttons are pressed. Thanks for the great job the admins are doing. Marcus
