  1. That looks absolutely luxurious, Dan. I assume that you have modelled a scale-sized drinks-tray underneath that centre bench-seat.
  2. I bought the 3000 series a couple of years ago ... but I don't recall it being THAT cheap !!!
  3. Agree on the rigging. I just love how completing each stage adds to the overall appearance of the build.
  4. Great to see you back on deck again, Dan. Very pleased to read that you have successfully kicked the cancer to the kerb. Count me in for this build, too - I wouldn't miss it for quids.
  5. Geoff, there were three books which I found very interesting. I read these when building the Model Shipways version of the Bounty Launch: "The Bounty Mutiny" - William Bligh and Edward Christian (brother of Fletcher) "A Narrative of the Mutiny, On Board HMS Bounty" - William Bligh "In Bligh's Hand" - Jennifer Gall You may also find this link of interest, although it has since been pointed out that I was wrong about the castaways having a sextant.
  6. Ron. I'm going to build a 1:1 model of your avatar. You just became my Hero.
  7. Check Plan Sheet 4 from your kit. The planks at 1/8" (3mm) width would be the ones you want.
  8. I've seen another builder doing this boat ... Buck covers building all of the pieces in his build log here. (Yes, that is a compass sitting next to the axe)
  9. I have a simple solution for you, Dupree ... When you are saving photos to store in your own Resource File, just select Save As, and then enter the file-name which you would like to call the picture.
  10. Not really, John. Though, I'd guess Fremantle, as that was where the replica was built. I just happened to be at Elizabeth Quay on Friday night and spotted some masting above the buildings. Naturally, I had to investigate ... and so I returned on the Saturday to snap off some pics for my MSW family. According to the tour guide I briefly spoke with, she will remain in Perth until mid-March, before heading up to Dirk Hartog Island. In truth, "return" visit is probably not completely accurate ... as the original never actually sailed up the Swan river (though they would've sailed past Fremantle).
