  1. Recovered modeler

    Greetings! I'm an American international management consultant, currently assigned to Cairo Egypt. I was introduced to ship modeling with an incomplete solid wood model of the Flying Fish when I was in HS. a few years later, I worked on the Cutty Sark and the Charles W. Morgan. I'm also a stained glass artist, so at some point will be providing some ideas on working with copper strips, since these are an integral part of stained glass work. I've got two projects underway, the first being Amati's Egyptian Transport, from ca. 4,000 BC. While that model is based on carvings in a tomb, excavations at the Khufu (great) pyramid discovered two boats from ca 4200, almost in good enough condition to float today. At some point, when I get to a build log on the Egyptian Transport, I'll add pictures of the original ship. (the second ship is still being reconstructed and waiting a new home in the expanded Egyptian Museum. They're interesting because the planks (from the cedars of Lebanon) were primarily sewn together rather than being pegged. The Khufu boats are the oldest surviving wooden boats in the world. About a year ago I started Model Shipways' USF Essex, and I've gotten the hull planked (but not completely shaped) and am about to start installing the deck. Hope to join the Essex blogs in a few days. Anyway, here's a start to the conversation...
