    Looking for Heritage Steamship model kits

    Hi John - check from our own MSW https://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/forum/28-card-and-paper-models/ and be sure to check some of the build logs - also, you may be able to troll the Ebay listings in plastic for something............Steve

    Pet Peeves

    Driving to work at 5 am in a small town, NO traffic and all the lights turn red just as I get to them 😠 and a variation of the angle parkers - when I go to a shopping place with a large lot I will park in ONE spot waaay in the back then when done shopping some idiot with a rusty beater car will have parked next to me.............

    Outstanding job, "JB"!! Steve M
  8. Thanks for sharing, Paul! There's so much of art in this technical hobby that there are nigh on to infinite possibilities that need to be navigated by a dilettante such as myself - the help is much appreciated! Steve M

    Great job there!
  10. Well I'm here - in spirit if not in body - meaning I'll be watching with great interest even though I won't be any help, not being possessed of any useful knowledge myself.......Just curious, would this be the older or newer version of the kit? Steve M
  11. Thunder, you're doing a fantastic job of this! I really love these obscure kits, they are of beautiful subjects but the materials can leave something to be desired due to their age - in this case you have shown both knowledge and talent in bringing it up to a much higher standard of construction! BTW, love the choice of paints and finishes, too.....Steve M
  12. Yes Thunder, as you and the kit stated, it is indeed 1/48 scale (1/4 inch = 4 quarters to the foot x 12 inches = 48) Very nice build of a very nice subject - I like to see these older, little known kits being put to the use they were intended! Steve M
  13. You're a brave man, and talented, too!! If I had achieved the nice result you had before, I wouldn't have redone it - I would have just said it's "my" version of the Dallas, but you have principles! Steve

    Beautiful and faithful representation of a beautiful subject!!
  15. Hi Pavel, being the dilettante box collector, I have a few of the BB kits, and without exception, they all have a printed deck supplied with them but since the Cutty is not among them I did a google image search and it seems that pretty much holds true in that case also. Did you purchase the kit new, or was it used - it may be missing parts in either case, and another possible answer may be the age of the kit - many of the mfr's change contents here and there for various reasons at times, although I haven't seen much evidence of that in Billing's case. IMO Wefalck's ideas are on the money if you can't get the printed ones from BB, in any case I sure would enjoy watching you build this baby! Steve M BTW - the picture you have posted shows the parts you should have, and the link below shows an actual photo of the parts that should have been in the box.. https://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/billing-boats-denmark-ref-nr564-cutty-244702677
