  1. Hi Dave , I have recently acquired a Festool Midi shop Vac with a class M Filter. I runs very quietly, sucks great and the hose works like charm when I use it with my hand held circular saw. Pricey, but worth it , I should say. Greetings, Rudolf
  2. What a beauty , Sotter! Very well done, especially in this scale! Greetings, Rudolf
  3. Ver, Very impressive Potter, a true miniature! if I may ask, to which plans do you work, apart from the pictures? Greeting, Rudolf
  4. Congratulations, that is a beauty, very crisp and exact, especially at that small scale! Very inspirational. Greetings, Rudolf
  5. Wow Daniel, how on earth did you carve that spindle in 1/100 scale? Greetings Rudolf
  6. 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

  8. Hi Grant,

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

  12. Hi Jens, beautiful work, the bulwarks are super, how did you adatch the stanchions to the aluminium bulwarks? Greetings, Rudolf
  13. 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
  14. 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
