    Please consider 1/48 scale in your future endeavors. We are all aware of the size constraints but the scale allows for such detail and always make beautiful displays given space constraints.



  2. So nice to hear from you again Chris. That's a very interesting selection of ship types that you are planning. Wouldn't that cutter or that 5th rate look magnificent in 1/48th scale? Just a thought.

  3. Hi Dave:


    Go to the home page of this forum and view the sponsors list. You will find Chuck's company listed as Syren Ship Model Company. It's a great site.

      Thank you Bob!  I just received my first order from them and it all looks great.  Lots of blocks and line for my Niagara.  Almost done assembling my Servomatic... looking forward to using it.  Thanks again,


  4. Just beautiful...what scale is this?

    What are these?

    Hi Erik: I believe that they are called Jacobs Ladders and were often used on a variety of wooden ships.

    These revenue cutters are beautiful and so is your craftsmanship. Execellent work.
  10. Hi Chuck...I've been checking your website daily for news of this project. A cutter at 1/48 scale...perfect...can't wait. Bob
  11. I love these small 1/48 scale boat projects. I wish Admiralty Models still made the 18' cutter plug. Just makes things easier. I'm pulling up a chair.
  12. Hi Richard: I noticed that you mentioned the possibility of "hull work" on you AL Dallas. I have this same unbuilt model packed away in storage, moving into my new house soon, and the hull aways looked too shallow to me. I have looked at some reference material over the years, including Howard Chapelle and others and I have always believed that the hull should be more "v" shaped or deeper for a revenue cutter of this time frame. I'll look into this further for you once I get settled. Bob
