  2. James H, I must say you and our Administration are always perfecting our Forum, Wonderful work!. Thank you, Here is a testimony, (no names to protect the innocent) there was a build log going on and I Liked the Posting however the content of the post was a result of a terrible mistake. Which caused me to be asked Why did I like that mistake?. My reply was ”I didn’t LIKE the mistake I only REACTED to it” ... keep up the Wonderful work. Jay

    A Lesson Learned, Bass vs Box

    Harley, Chuck S is always correct he is in wonderful San Diego I am in the ugly Desert! Lol. in my old lost builds the topic of to blacken or not to blacken connons always ended with the words "bright and shiny natural brass connons only exist on models only and not real ships" and in order to be historically correct that gave me the will powered to blacken. however I have found that (depending on the build) to me there is nothing more fancy then a bright and shiny properly riged connon. your the Captain and your in control. Jay
  14. Nenad, LOL ,,, BLUSH!!... thank you for sharing the others builds and yes I did finish a whole pot of coffee enjoying them unbelievable work just as yours is please keep up this amazing work Jay
  15. Mark, would you say this is the smallest scale most detailed build on MSW ?. I trust your experience and knowledge. Jay

    A Lesson Learned, Bass vs Box

  20. Carl, at first i thought it was just me however I talked to Mary(nrg) about these issues hopefully Chuck has things under control as always for now I'll just say "I LIKE THIS POST" lol
  21. Doug, Thank you for answering my request with those perfectly taken pictures as well as the information of the tool. upon close examination I couldn't help my imagination from running wild with it's multipurpose It's a must have. now looking at my old sorry looking 3rd hand which I tossed out the window (should have opened the window first! LOL) the Admiral decided for the sake of safety to simply order for me a new 3rd hand just like yours, (amazing what a none needed fake bandaid can do after cleaning up broken glass Lol) looking forward to this very nice build Jay
  22. Doug, very nice work your doing I am truly enjoying this build, thank you for sharing. quick question in the above picture there is a type of third hand holder tool that looks different from the others I always see Perhaps you might find the time for a extra picture(s) of that tool ? It would be appreciated Jay
  23. Danny, Thank you for that Awsome Tip on turning the plank over, I have always been to proud to admit I almost always slip and destroy my plank!. Especially when someone is watching me plank, now all I have to do is flip my plank and magic! It's gone. However I well not admit I slipped (lol)
