  1. Congrats to the Kiwi team. Very well performance and perfection. See you in four years as me and a friend will make the trip to the beautiful New Zealand. We were both hoping for a NZ win.
  2. John, I am following them as well. Besides as you say arch rivals in the sky. I would like to build one of those models, but I think I will stick to my stash of ships. Which are quite a few. Many years of building!
  3. Photoshop or not, that is a nice picture!
  4. Lots of nice goodies there.
  5. John, I am sorry if I hurt any ones feeling in this matter that wasn't the intention of the input. Some years ago I belonged to a forum that was dedicated to one type of topic , it got infected by peoples side hobbies and the moderator decided that wasn't the idea of the forum. It resulted it was taken off line. Don't take me wrong, I truly enjoy following the builds of airplane. They are extremely exquisite and very well detailed. And you are right, the shore leave is to open for any topic.
  6. Please remember the purpose of this forum, and the reason why we have it. I like airplanes too, but then I will visit the proper forum.
  7. Pat, You have a very nice workshop there. I like the setup. I did visit your website and was really impressed. The only question I have, do you have a regular life?
  8. Team Oracle went straight to the finals with their wins, getting one point. Team NZL won four in a row last weekend, the first race put them at a tie, the following three gave them the leading points of three. If team NFL wins all four races this upcoming weekend it's all over.
  9. I saw that my sport channel has the Saturday and Sunday races ready for broadcasting , but not the remaining.
  10. Oracle nerds three straight wins, to stay in the game. One loss and it's all over.
  11. Stan, parallell with the Americas Cup AC35 the J class is also sailing in Bermuda.
  12. Well, so far it looks like the Kiwi's has a solid grip of the America Cup. Good racing from both teams today.
  13. Today! What a Friday I would say. Started good having a package waiting for me at the post office, this one from ModelExpo. I brought the package to work and had time to open it before it was time start working. I received parts so straight and perfect. BIG THANK YOU TO MARC MOSCO @ ModelExpo for High Quality Customer Service My Syren is back on a "Straight Track"
  14. So, it will be NZ vs US in the finals. I like to visit New Zeeland so I hope they win!
  15. Mark, Now I truly can say , I am also part of a modelclub in Seattle, well put it Northern Seattle but still. We are meeting once a month, I am more than happy to help you connect with our president. As for the sloup, I don't think you would have any issues with that kit. We all beginners is various stages, and no question will be left unanswered. A song popped into my mind, an old disco song "We are family" Text has been altered. We are family I got all my siblings with me ( I had to change the text here, from sisters to siblings as we are a group both of women and men) We are family Get up everybody and build We are family I got all my siblings with me We are family Get up everybody and build Everyone can see we're together As we build our ships (And!) and we glue the stick together I won't tell no lie (All!) all of the people around us they say They are building ships
  16. Chuck, The models they made back in that time are amazing. Go to any naval or maritime museum and look at models built in early 1800's, the detailing is just so exquisite. I am glad you had a good time, you certainly needed some down time.
  17. Ha en trevlig semester! Have a nice vacation, we will all be here once you are back.
  18. Well, since I see another person with very few points whom I like to welcome too. Mark a warm welcome to you too. And start your build log whenever "you are ready"
  19. And from Pacific NorthWest a Warm Welcome to MSW
  20. I am following the races too, it's amazing how technology has change sailing to the extreme. But born in the mid-60, has only sailed mono-hull all through my life I have a hard to imaging sailing those formula one catamarans. This is more my style of racing.
  21. As Carl said, why not having the topic Where do you come from, Well, here it is! We are ready for some serious heritage and family history stories.
