  1. Bob, Beautiful work but your pictures are out of focus. Please take new ones and also include some closeups showing interiors through the open areas in the deck and hull.
  2. Bob, Great looking oars and base for your display. I usually don't put that much work in mine, but you have made me reconsider. Although I did build one unusual base. It was based on one I saw at a museum. It was made on a turntable so the observer could turn it to view the work of art from all sides. I incorporated a glass dome on mine to keep fingers off the model. It was a great hit, but the model was of a fully rigged armed launch at 1/8" to a foot scale so the base was only 9" in diameter and didn't take up much space to display. Best Regards and thanks for the quick response, Mike Peltier
  3. Bob how is the model coming along? I haven't seen any recent posts. Best Regards, Mike peltier
