  1. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Regular Captain Morgan 750ml, USD 13.50 in WA at Total Wine and More. About the same price for Admiral Nelson.
  2. A better modeling experience

    William As we say in here at MSW, this is no race...... three years are nothing. And a big welcome to you!
  3. Latest pieces off my drawing board

    Michael, Now I wish there was a button for beautiful too. How much is a drawing running? And can you do one based on photographs? My father turns 80 next year and it would be great to have something unique for him.
  4. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Don, Just fixing the pipe, will not stop the process of rot. Glad to hear you were able to stop the leaking and got a compensation for your work. Joists and sub-floor might need to be replaced, probably even more. If not, black mold will set in very quick. And we all know how bad black mold is. Have him check the walls to, if it's an insulated it has to be rework. Had a water heater that leaked, became an insurance deal. As the whole subfloor had to be replaced along with wall in two rooms. The leakage had been going on for less than a month and it was a pure mess. All I had to put in was my deductible which was less than 10% of the final cost.
  5. Therapy for Shipaholics

    Steve, I am currently consulting my minions, regarding his need. Some cases are easier than others, which means more time is needed. Yes, I am allowed to prescribe out of state, but also internationally for those in need.
  6. Therapy for Shipaholics

    Steve, I hope you are doing well, Many times disorders comes and goes by themselves, . Having issues with compulsions and obsessive in this matter has been around for hundreds of years if not thousands. It all started with a log floating down a stream and man tried to be on top. Rather quick he figured out, if I make it hollow, which he did, it won't turn over so easily. So my remedy to you even though it's over a year, is to get a small piece of branch (from a tree), cut out an opening, fill the bathtub with water - use warm water so you can enjoy it too. Sink yourself without drowning, enjoy the warmth, now you can load your "ship" with various items, and learn about displacement. Next time add good healthy salt (this is for you), and do it again. You will be surprised how your "ship" change sitting in the water. Enjoy!
  7. Wood supplier Ocooch

    Derek, Many thanks for that info, somehow my PC didn't show the listed items from the beginning, saw it first time today. Sorry for that. Scratch building?
  8. Wood supplier Ocooch

    Derek, Would you please specify type of wood, how many sheets of each and final price tag....... It's okay if you don't want to share the price but I think we are several that like to know.
  9. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Almost every day I am part of the MSW radio show. It's a call in show where you talk about ship modeling and your progress. A good motivator.
  10. I would love to work with pear, have to give it a try someday.
  11. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Brian, That's the reason cameras should be ready to record..........
  12. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    I have three dogs and don't have such issues as they are entertaining and playing together. I do have to remove my sneakers out of reach, they love hiding them from me. A dog door and fenced yard is so great to have.
  13. What have you received today?

    A lot of work. You never did a space planning layout to show how the Admirals choice of course would effect the flow?!
  14. Wood supplier Ocooch

    Seems like a good source with other options of wood. I always wanted to get some aspen, and yes they have it. Thanks for providing the link.
