  4. Introduction: new member.

    Hola Alfredo: Welcome to this great site. It is good to have another mexican in the Forum, we are very few of us. As you I had a very similar background in modeling: starting when I was a little boy with the Revell-Lodela kits and then returning to modeling after 50 years!!! The difference is that now I am more interested in doing wood kits instead of plastic ones. Also, I was born in Mexico City but since the 70´s I live in Guaymas, Son. Saludos, Karl PD: By the way, one of my closest friend here at Guaymas is a retired Admiral of the navy

  7. Brass Blackener

    Hola Bill: I used with good success the Patina that is sold in "stained glass" shops and it is used to blackened the silver tone of lead and other materials that laid in between the glasses. Depending the time you submerged the brass piece in the solution is the hue of black you obtain. Saludos, Karl

  10. Wasa bahia 6

    Hallo Nils: No, actually I took the picture sitting the model on a bench and then using the PAINT software of MS Office, erasing the bench with the copy-paste function several times over sea and grass. Viele Grüße aus Mexiko, Karl
  11. Regalship Vasa, 1628. The making of this model emerged by chance as I was given by a friend who could not do it. The construction was a challenge because initially I had to disarm several pieces, many pieces were loose without identification and model instructions are poor. However, after 15 months I could finish this great model. I show some pictures on photomontage in the bay of San Carlos, Guaymas and several on details of the ship.
