I baaaack!

Recommended Posts

Maybe I wasn't missed that much, but I'm back after a couple months absence.  My company got freaked out about the ransom ware scare last spring and cut off all internet acess not business related for all summer and fall.  They just instituted a new protocol for access and we can once again get back on line.  So here I am.  Of course, it's my turn tonight to go out and purchase the goat tonight and don't ask what they want us to do with the hamsters...

 

Not much done with the Victory model, as summer is my season to do outside stuff and I just now got back to the fun things indoors. Starting to put the cladding on the hull now.  One question...  Is it just Momoli, or are all model instructions written as if they were German translated directly from?

The instruction I had with my (Corel) Prins Willem, was done by someone who looked up word-by-word in a dictionary,

and had no understanding of ships nor modelbuilding.

Yeah, I was trying to figure out what they were talking about with one set of instructions and finally decided that what they were trying to say was that I was supposed to slice the planking lengthwise to fit in the gaps left by the placement of the full sized planks on either side.  Doesn't help that the materials lists are all in Italian.

Welcome back. I, too, spend warmer weather outdoors. Living in Minnesota, the first snow, which just happened, is my call to build. I'm doing the Victory cross section by D'QAgostini8. Its well laid out.

They do have hard to understand written instructions sometimes. I use Google

Translator for the list parts and that gives me a bit of an idea.

Welcome back "Pshrynk"  (is that your real name)?! All the best, Geoff

Has been since early CompuServe days.  The paycheck says Brian Proctor, but only the bank cares about that.
