  1. The "Dr" is back with renewed energy, unfortunate due the malfunction and crash of the initial MSW 2 the client list disappeared. I hope that this hasn't resulted with jumps from bridges because of a missing piece of material in a kit or wrongly scaled line when scratchbuilding. Considering the cry out for the therapy sessions to open up again, I saw the topic and inserted pictures I became aware of the need. And as always, confidentially is not an option. This ship is big enough for all of us Dr. Per aka Per aka Nirvana
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. 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?
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. I would love to work with pear, have to give it a try someday.
  12. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    Brian, That's the reason cameras should be ready to record..........
  13. 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.
  14. 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?!
  15. 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.
  16. Hello

    Tristan, Warm . The choice of the cutter seems to be a great one. Just watch the video from BlueJacket. Enjoy! Some day I hope to build a BlueJacket kit.
  17. The "What have you done today?" thread.

    John, Try Thailand and Malaysia in late November, then we talk humidity 😁
  18. Terrified

    Aaron, Did you start a build log for us to follow. If not, it's high-time to do so and upload pictures so we can help or at least guide you.
  19. Found this "art" posted on Facebook. I like it very much, defentily something for the office.
  20. What have you received today?

    Mike, Yepp same machine. But as you say the battery life is really impressive. Think I charge mine every second month. Long lasting. Wish the chuck could hold drills in the size of 78 to 80.
  21. Maritime Nautical Art

    John, If had been for sale I would had bought it. There was nothing about the artist, hope to find out some day.
  22. Maritime Nautical Art

    So weird picture, wonder where the wind is coming from.......
  23. What have you received today?

    John, Dremel micro is kind of noisy in my opinion and has a lot of vibrations. This is my third as the previous two was under recall from Robert Bosch. But otherwise it is a good machine, Waiting for the day when they are coming out with a better one. I also have a corded version that I hardly use.
  24. Terrified

    , Dooder85 Maybe we can get a real name some day as well. Choose a model that you feel you can be comfortable with, start a build log and post the progress. If stuck (which will happen) we are here to help.
