  4. Sanding Sticks

    I just make my own. This way I can have all sorts of sizes and shapes to get into weird places.
  5. Hello from Belgium

    Welcome. I'll be visiting Brussels and Antwerp this July.
  6. You're going to love Captain Jack Aubrey in all the O'Brian series.
  7. Don't you hate it when you drop small parts?

    I probably could build a whole new ship if I could find all those dropped pieces and parts. I wonder where they go? they never fall straight down so you can find them.
  8. Balsa seemed to work for me in past models.
  9. You look at it once in a while.
  10. Those old kits can make you sick - Mansonia

    Use a mask when sanding. Some of that wood is dangerous to your health.
  11. A nice number two pencil can do caulking and nails.
  12. The future of ship modelling ?

    I spent most of my life buying American until I bought a Ford in 1995 and found out it was built in Japan. Sometimes you can't win
  13. Thanks for bringing this up. I did not want to paint my wales bright red. Red ocre is more like what I envision. Thanks!
