  1. Under a Glass Moon - Dream Theater Images and Words LP. ( again... a great listen for any prog rock fan who hadn’t heard them).
  2. Then I'd say buy two! My guess is if one is used for it's intended purpose, it will soon be useless for our rigging needs. 😉
  3. What an absolutely beautiful model. Impressive size, and the details are amazing. Enjoyable read. Thanks for sharing.
  4. Money for Nothing- Dire Straits
  5. Slow going as work gets in the way. It also looks like we'll have a pretty full high school baseball season so I've been spending more free time in the rule book and getting in a little better shape. I installed the planksheer. I painted the outboard side, again, because I can't see another way to get a crisp line later. It was short at the bow, as many have mentioned. Pretty straight forward fix to add some length. I've added the whales, and I've started the first few strakes after lining off the upper belt. I found myself a nice

This being my first attempt at planking a deck, I thought this looked like a good way to go. I would also like to add the hatch and cabin moldings prior to planking the deck, so I though a solid base will give me the best shot at laying down l
  10. Here’s something different ...a song that’s not 30+ years old. Johnny Came Marching - Black Swan - Shake the World LP. Released 2020
  11. Elderberry Wine - Elton John
  12. Thanks Joe. The deck planking are indeed 1/16 thick. I think I'm going to take your advice. I've seen others do things to get a sub deck on this mode. This seems like the best method to me, as to not run into any added thickness to the deck which would undoubtedly cause issues with the planksheer and bulwarks. Your Latham looks tremendous. Years ago, in my early teens, I lived close to Model Shipways in Bogota, NJ. I built the Taurus (pretty sloppily I may add, as most teens would). I then went for the 1/8" scale Latham. Back then they were all solid hull. I don't think I ever f
