  1. What is the difference between left and right capsquare? The angle of the frame? At 1/4 scale or less is there enough difference to be noticable if you only make a straight capsquare? On the jig to get left and right is it the angle of the pin thats inserted in the jig right? Well explained, thank you.
  2. Doris so sorry to hear of your loss, I am sure that your husband was very proud of you and your work, it is fantastic!
  3. Fantastic job on the cabin detail! What is the process for making the cushions/mattresses? Perhaps a seperate log.

  5. Yes i spent several hours on internet looking for reference to fig ivy wood before i posted this here, the next step will be the library ... a little difficult right now. I can not believe how hard it is!
  6. I had trimmed some fig ivy in my back yard last year and had saved several crooked pieces and set off to the side. This week I cleaned them up and removed the bark. The wood is cream color, has no visible grain and the wood is hard as all get out. Has any one ever used this wood or know where I can find information about wood and has any one in the Community used this wood?
  7. Be interesting to see what you will be able to do with the Mini CNC, will be following your use along with the rest of your build. I have been a little hesitant in purchasing one because of the cost and learning curve. The prices are comming down but I am getting older making the learning curve harder!
  8. Looks like it will be a nice model how is your progress on the build?
  9. Yes we all learn from what others do and how they do it and we become better in what we do, regardless what we do.. as long as we attempt to do it better. Your build inspires us all.
  10. Hmmm I recently acquired this kit that has been started from a gentleman who recently lost his wife and I would like to finish it up asap. I guess I need to post a build log here and will definately will be following your build Also I note that there is another Prince build on modelshipbuilder but is almost finished, a good build and a good reference.
