  1. that was before I looked in on it. I looked in a his profile mid may. if he's here.......he's quiet as a mouse
  2. how many ships are there.........I see only one
  3. that's all I post, is the thumbnails.......it used to be that the full size pictures were too large a format. if you want to post them side by side, in an effort to compress the post, they would have to be sized to fit half of the field perimeters. I size mine down by 30%.......but you can do it more to accomplish this. lots of folks like the larger photos, to study how a particular process looks and is done. I keep all my pictures on a memory stick......I never use a photo site.
  4. a couple of weeks ago, I was sitting at my desk thumbing through the site, when it came to me that I hadn't seen Frank {riverboat}. looking around, I saw that his last post was the beginning of March. I sent an e-mail to Frank, since I have a new computer now and I haven't set up my SKYPE yet. I haven't gotten a reply, so now I'm getting a bit concerned. has anyone heard from him lately?
  5. Happy birthday my friend!  hope you have a great day......

  6. I agree with Pavol......the angle of the cannons....the cut of the transom......gives it the look of someone's beautiful imagination. the crests could be clues......find out what they mean, and how to recreate them....the flags as well. restore her to her former glory she made somebody happy........maybe you too!
  7. great looking model Mike....you did a very fine job of it
  8. happy Birthday my friend!  I hope your day was good and spent the way you wanted to ;)  

  9. thank you.......I'm enjoying it immensely! I used to use the old one as a pin cushion..... I dare not do it to this one I have a wallpaper that she did for me a long time ago......had it on my computer for quite a while. she was amazed that I still have it.......as she should know, I never throw anything out! seeing the Regina {Susan A} and the Nordkap........damn, makes me wish I could get another of either of them. I still have the original Nordie....... she's a keeper John! thanks for the likes as well.
  10. nice bit of progress....coming along really well. just bookmarked the site....they have some cool look'in models
  11. that's not my desk
  12. I never take Father's day off.....where I work the week end, I never get to enjoy it. the admiral was pestering me lately to take it off........bugged me so bad that I did. I have suspicions that there's something afoot, but I'll play along. today the UPS guy stopped by.........I saw him as I was working on one of my son's friend's car. the admiral took off with my son to the grocery store. when they came back, I had the car almost back together......I noticed she had a white parcel with her. she told me it was a Father's day gift for me. for some reason, she had changed her mind and wanted me to open it now. I didn't want to at first, but she insisted.......whatever . here's what was inside........ they are the Nordkap, the Susan A, the Cux 87, and the Mary Ann. it's so cool!
  13. a very nice beginning John I used to enjoy the comet and Guillow's kits when I was younger. last year I got back into it, building a Spitfire Mk1. now I'm in the middle of a Fokker Dr1.....ready for sanding and tissue. love to follow along.
  14. you do beautiful work
