  1. Sherry that's a beautiful job you have done on that violin! WOW.
  2. Tom on page 443 of the USS constitution build, what thickness of styrene were you using? All I have is .020 and seems too thin. Thanks in advance.
  3. Absolutely great work! Your paint details are perfect. I can only hope to paint that well.
  4. I have the micro scrapers and after a little practice I found that the basswood that a lot of models come with seems to be too soft. I used pear wood and held the scraper straight up at 90 degrees and they worked great. These micro scrapers don't have a burr edge so holding at an angle didn't work at all for me. Straight up worked best for me.
  5. Phil I had my cataract surgery done on both eyes in Feb and March of 2018. I am so glad I did. I have 20/20 vision for distance and only need reading glasses for close up things. Each surgery only took about 15 minutes. Total time was about 2 hrs because of preparation before and after. Overall a great experience for me.
  6. Thank you to everyone for your help. This is my first attempt at wooden ship building and I truly am enjoying it. The tape stayed down for about two weeks and then slowly started lifting. I'm probably mishandling the tape with my fingers touching the sticky side too much as was stated. I wish there was a video I could watch of someone actually putting on the copper tape so I could see how they are doing it. I learn easier by watching someone do a project. Thanks again.
  7. My copper tape is lifting up where it overlaps the adjacent tape. I burnish it well, so I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Is there a fix or do I need to start over? Thanks
