  1. Hi all, I have been a long time inactive on the forum (but continued to read). I bought the Proxxon and I'm very happy of it. I have almost finished my Pinta (but I'm too ashamed to show it). So I want to say thank you to the whole forum for the precious suggestions
  2. Thanks all for the answers. I will check for Proxxon or Dremel. PS: Yes, I'm in Europe, Italy.
  3. Hi all, I'm here again to ask for help. I need to buy a mini-drill (to make some holes in wood, for ships), so I have no idea with characteristics are important to check. I found (at my usual shop) the OC 19104. What do you think about it? Is it ok? Or better to choose something else? Thanks Alessandro
  4. Hi Shawn, thanks very much for your feedback
  5. Hi to all, I'm new to this forum, but already have a question. I assembled in the past some plastic ship models (mainly Corel and Airfix). In the last months I started with some wooden models (2 mini-mamoli and one old viking ship - lost box, so don't know the brand). And I found I definetely prefer the wooden ones (I found mini-mamoli pretty easy). So now I would like to do something more than the mini-mamoli. I saw the Golden Hind from Occre and was thinking to buy it. But not sure about the difficulty of it. What do you think? Is it too early to do this kit? does it have a good quality? The main reasons to choose it are because I like it and because the price is pretty low (I don't want to spend too much for my 4th model, coz I know I still have a lot to learn... but I have to start from somewhere). Or do you have some other kit/brand to suggest? Thank you all for your suggestions
