  3. Manila folder B777

    There is this builder on Youtube that has been building a Boeing 777 out of manila folder cardboard. His work is so "out of this world" Here is his section on the main landing gear Luca Iaconi-Stewart uploaded, posted and added to Manila Folder Model 777-300ER Project.
  4. Hi Mates, There are diecast car collectors who add LED lighting to their cars. This si by far the best that I have seen so far - even the rear view door mirrors have blinking turn indicator lights
  5. Hi Mates, Been busy with standing rigging. For me this is a real step forward. Thanks so much for all of your previous likes - All very encouraging indeed.
  6. Mike, Thanks SO much for sharing all of these great photos - what an amazing project let's indeed hope that it has not stopped. Glad that I found this thread Cheers
  7. The interior details, and lighting are also very nice.
  8. Interesting thread indeed, nice to know that I am not alone spending sometimes only an hour (or less) on any given day. Then there are rare days when I will spend, in the aggregate, seven hours that day. Then there are also consecutive days when the shipyard is unemployed. It also depends on the needed tasks at hand. If I think that certain "bits" are a chore then time lapses indeed. Then if I work on bits that really "get me going" I can last several daily sessions in a row. I did make a New Year's resolution to actually finish this build in 017. Then I remembered how many N Yr's resolutions I have broken over the decades - ha ha PS: I do love this hobby, it indeed fills a very nice niche in my life. I have no intentions of not always having a second career in my shipyard. I may not be a responsibly consistent employee however. !! Cheers,
  9. What have you received today?

    Brian, Better late than NEVER. Yes, having Ned stark beheaded at the end of season one - I was OMG Nooooo. Immediately Googled it - then realized that I had been living in a cave. Had never heard of George RR Martin. Loved the first season, so added the book to my iPad through Amazon. So loved reading it. It was as if I were seeing the first season again through the book. So well written. That was, of course, was a few years ago. Have since read all five books and, AND of course cannot wait until July 16, 2017 (:-) Along with many of millions of fans world-wide. According to data when streaming services are added the- per episode -views in the USA are about 23 million per episode. Glad that you are (finally) experiencing this amazing television series. Indeed enjoy the other seasons as well. Cheers,

    Hi Mates, Just got the Billings Oseberg 720 kit. Oh My is this a BIG kit!!; poor shopping on my part.. No idea it would be SO big- it’s just a Viking boat ha ha. I also “assumed” that (at least) the sailcloth would be pre-printed with red stripes. Not! Bit disappointed with my poor shopping skills for this kit. I was just not paying attention. After 4 seasons of The Vikings on History Channel I really wanted to build a Viking boat. Especially after seeing Jack Panzeca’s and Von Kossa’s brilliant logs for this Billings kit. My brain still did not "see" the size. …. I think that I will have to “pass on it”. Just add it to the garage stuff… I don’t have the right tools to build something in this scale - at the level of detail that I try to achieve. Note the actual size on that profile sheet (Corel Wasa for perspective). Admiral can never see this monster ha ha.. As usual, Cheers…..
  11. For Some.....
  12. Hi Mates, No I'm not a Titanic "nut case" these just show up on youtube based on my previous viewings. Clever indeed - apparently a one-of scratch built.
  13. PS: the videos that load right after are also Titanic related if you are interested Cheers,
  14. Awesome indeed. Loved the movie as well
