  1. Congratulations, that is a beauty, very crisp and exact, especially at that small scale! Very inspirational. Greetings, Rudolf
  2. Wow Daniel, how on earth did you carve that spindle in 1/100 scale? Greetings Rudolf
  3. Hello Eberhard, Thank you very much for your inspirational postings. Do you think that your Little laser will be able to cut deck Planks, say 1,2 mm wide 6 cm Long out of Costello or maple veneer? Thank you. Greetings, Rudolf
  4. Very nice build, you have got very small chain on your bowsprit . where did you get it ? If I may ask. Greetings, Rudolf
  5. Hi Grant,

    Beautiful work, I admire your micro skills in metal work. Nicely executed pin rail too. The stanchion definitely look alright.

    I would like to see  some more pics of your progress.




  6. wow, that looks phantastic, is the propeller laminated wood or painted plastic? If ist si painted, how did you do that? Greeting, Rudolf

  8. Very impressive, Walter. what kind of wood are you using? Greeting, Rudolf
  9. Hi Jens, beautiful work, the bulwarks are super, how did you adatch the stanchions to the aluminium bulwarks? Greetings, Rudolf
  10. Hello Carlos, Congratulions to your model. I especially like the combination of the POB construction and your phantastic timber work on the surface of the model, much like in full scale ship building. Greetings Rudolf
  11. Hi Ed, as you suggested I printed the patterns aout in original size on A4 paper, it worked well, there was no distortion. A few years ago I tried to plank a model of Red Jacket scatch build to Mr Crothers´ plans. I juts could not plant the round counter properly altough I tried spilling. Will try your method if find the time for modelling again. Your planking job is exceptional, but once paited will it be visible at all? The book is a joy to read and a motivation to start buildng again as soon as possible. Greetings, Rudolf
  12. Hi Ed, Since last week i am a proud owner of your book. Outstanding, I must say. one question though: i have no American legal or letter sized paper, can the bulkhead patterns for the 1/96 version be printed on A4 paper too, and if so what must I change in the setting on the pdfs? Thanks again for your fabulous work on clipper ship model building. Greetings, Rudolf
  13. Jan, simply beautiful! Do you DC FIX brand of foil? If so which kind of wood specifically? Keep the pictures coming! Greetinges , Rudi
  14. Hello Klaus, Beautiful build, congratulations! I assume the cabin door opens to the inside, as otherwise it would interfere with the steering stick? Greetings, Rudolf
