  1. That looks awesome! Great work Joss!!
  2. Awesome- thanks for the quick response! So then for modeling purposes the newer version is the better way to go?
  3. Sorry to revive a two year old topic, but I'm wondering if there is any difference in information between the hardcover AOS book and the older softvover one?

    Sorry to hear KP. Sounds like he was an extremely talented man, and while maybe he didn't put his talents to use financially it sure sounds like those talents made a mark on you and maybe even the grandkids- which I would argue may be the best use! Best Wishes, Chad
  5. Just went back and saw your log for the Naiad... pretty excited to get in on the ground floor on this one! Can you point me in the direction of the plans or model for the Anson? Chad
  6. Very nice! Is there photos of the accompanying model somewhere? Chad
  7. Awesome The Amphion is such a beautiful ship! I'll have to keep a lookout for your eventual build log! I'm about 90% done framing out a model of the US Brig Eagle from the War of 1812. In typical me fashion it's been about 5 years since I started drawing the plans and it's been a slooow, researched to death process since then. I figure I'll start a build log once I'm doing something beside building a few frames every couple months.
  8. Finished this book recently and can also highly recommend it. I found it to be a bit Euro-centric in that it dealt mostly with England, France, Spain, and the Netherlands but I was OK with that. The book takes a more broad look at the war and concentrates more on fleet actions and naval strategy by countries and how it affected the tide of the war, vs looking at individual ship actions. Definitely recommended and I'll be searching out more of Sam Willis' books in the future!

  10. Hello old friend! Just came across your log- nice work so far! You mentioned in your first post this is the filler model before working on another Bounty? Take Care, Chad

    Wonderful as usual Jim! How long have you been painting for? Chad
  12. Oh geez... it was right under my nose! Thanks Karl!
  13. Karl- Beautiful work as usual! What type of finish do you use on your pearwood? I believe I remember reading in one of your logs at some point but I could be mistaken. Thanks, Chad
