  1. Received and Mini Kit Review Model Expo’s New Norwegian Pram I recently received one of the new Model Expo Norwegian Pram kits in 1/12th scale, with an overall length of 12 1/2” and a height of 15 1/2”. I call this a mini review, as I did not open the bagged parts. I will not do that until I actually build it. No need to risk losing any of the parts. This is the second kit in their new series of “Progressive Model Tutorials” . Like the dory kit I reviewed earlier, the kit was designed by David Antscherl! The price is listed at (~$50), but I got mine on sale.
  2. Received and Mini Kit Review Model Expo’s New Grand Banks Dory I recently received one of the new Model Expo Grand Banks Dory kits in 1/24th scale. The model is listed as 15 foot dory which would give an overall length of 7.5”. The box lists the overall length as 10 “, which would make it either a 20 foot dory, or 1/18th scale, if a 15 foot dory. I call this a mini review, as I did not open the bagged parts. I will not do that until I actually build it. No need to risk losing any of the parts. Over all for the price (~$30), a great kit!
  3. When I built my MS Smoothbore Cannon, I used a Sharpie "Permanent" marker for the caulking. Big mistake! After I glued the decking to the ply subdeck, the marker ink ran al over the place while the glue dried ovenight. Had to remove the planks and start again. MS sent me a new set of deck planks free.
  4. Well, after a month and a half of Internet problems, I think I'm back on! First the dog broke her crate, so we had to leave her in the bedroom, when we went out. She chewed through the back of the door, and my Eithernet cable, between the modem and computer. It took about a week to get a new 30 foot cable, via mail order. After I got that fixed, I was busy every day I had off. Until last week. Last Thursday night we had a lightning strike outside the house, and it took out the cable modem! I spent two hours on the phone with tech supp
  5. I'm going to have to wait for the DVD, my tv does not support the Apple TV app.
  6. You have to expect a little "Movie Magic". I'll watch this, probably Thursday.
  7. " I will have to remove the material between his legs such to sit on the bow. " How much does the vet charge to neuter a lion?
  8. Mother nature abhors a vacuum, but not as much as a cat does!
  9. Don't forget the "Color of Magic" movie. There is also some animated ones, though the name slips my mind.
  10. Michael, Look up "Fast Tracks" They sell all types and scales of templates for hand building track and turnouts (switches to some). You don't have to buy one but the picture of one of the dual gauge templates would answer your questions. https://www.handlaidtrack.com/
  11. Don't forget Cohen "The Barbarian", one of the greatest spoofs ever!
  12. Buy 4X8 sheets and have them cut them down to 2x4 or 2x8 for you, much cheaper.
  13. After, geez, 2 busy months, I'm finally back to reading the forum. I got behind when I started being given 40 hour work weeks, and also made the mistake of buying a truck that needed "just a little work" that was 45 minutes away! Took me about 7 of my days off to get it a a drivable point. The other days off were "Honey Do" days. 40 hours does not sound bad, but 40 hours of janitorial work at 65 wears me out! I plan on leaving the job, at the end of July, or August, so will have more time for me, then. The week I lost my internet, did not help either. My wif
