  1. Sanding Sticks

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

    Welcome. I'll be visiting Brussels and Antwerp this July.
  3. You're going to love Captain Jack Aubrey in all the O'Brian series.
  4. 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.
  5. Balsa seemed to work for me in past models.
  6. You look at it once in a while.
  7. Those old kits can make you sick - Mansonia

    Use a mask when sanding. Some of that wood is dangerous to your health.
  8. A nice number two pencil can do caulking and nails.
  9. 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
  10. Thanks for bringing this up. I did not want to paint my wales bright red. Red ocre is more like what I envision. Thanks!
  11. U.S. Flag Decals

    Try printable flags. there are several websites
  12. Where can I get TINY letters for my ship?

    Try "Starfighter Decals). I ordered $15 worth My problem is how do I transfer those tiny tiny decals without destroying them? They are so small I need a magnifier to read them .
  13. Miniature Hand Tools

    I love your mini tools. I just got this mini caliper from a surgeon who does micro surgery. It'll come in handy measuring in tight places where my giant caliper won't go.
  14. Dead eye spacer

    I did something similar with paperclips. You are right...it works.
