  1. Looks like you had a good turkey day surrounded by all the right people Craig. Thanks for sharing.
  2. As usual, I suppose I was not precise enough in my comment, favoring a general statement trying to cover a period of time in general. I based the statement on prior sold listings on eBay over the last few months. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2334524.m570.l1312&_nkw=Revell+USS+Kearsarge&_sacat=0&LH_TitleDesc=0&_sop=16&_osacat=0&_odkw=Revell+USS+Kearsarge+1%2F96&LH_Complete=1&rt=nc&LH_Sold=1 In the second part of my statement I was not referring to what was PRESENTLY available but what HAD been sold over the last few month
  3. "Congratulations on getting back into your dungeon and onto your build Dave. I think I would have been a little upset if it only took the guy a few minutes with a meter to fix the elevator. It has been a long wait and way too many Jigsaw puzzles trying to get access to your full house. Happy Thanksgiving.
  4. For me it is more of an issue to keep my mind from wandering. Sometimes these days I almost consider it the most mobile part of my body. Happy Thanksgiving and mental peace to all of you anywhere.
  5. The $1050.00 listing is still there on eBay but it seems that they are commonly available even on eBay at $200 or less. The fantastic aftermarket sail set from Hismodel is available @ $70 though. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Revell-USS-Kearsarge-1-96-set-of-Standard-sails-for-mode-sewed-on-CNC-machine/224069164620?hash=item342b901e4c:g:X4MAAOSwnNVfq~Uc
  6. I also hope all of you have a pleasant and fulfilling day and don't get too stuffed in the process. (Save it for the Turkey)
  7. I like them all, especially if they have chocolate and Raspberry inside! But I think I like the Osprey and Phantom the best. It would almost be a shame to eat the Galleon
  8. No reason not to go ahead and build your hull using templates like Tom is CDR. It is a time honored method used in almost all solid hull models of virtually any shape. No need for a lathe at all. Your hull is looking better every day Tom. What you may consider when it is time to lay out your hull details is to use the paper patterns you already have. For example lay the profile plan onto the top and secure it temporarily. take a sharp needle like device and follow the lines you want to transfer poking dots into the hull. Then remove the pattern and connect the dots. The
  9. Wouldn't using Polymer clay be a better choice? That way you can mold and carve it, but when finished it can be baked in the oven and made hard. Your progress on this build is looking fantastic Yves.
  10. And then up to the bedroom. I have plenty of that kind of practice. But then I may not have it down solid yet even in my old age. It seems that I get stuck with the cleanup all by myself while the child who was more than happy to help me make the mess is happily outside playing with whatever it was and not available. Of course my wife gives me that, "I didn't make the mess" look, so I know better than to go there for help!
  11. Thank you Jim Like the others I like your what I think are White Tailed Eagles. (I am not a bird expert) I suppose I should have realized that of course you paint other subjects than those with ships. As far as I'm personally concerned they are as interesting as your pictures with ships. I had to privately laugh a little at the fact that you do paintings and seascapes and ships but your play toys are tanks. Well I suppose they are sometimes called Landships. Years ago I was pretty heavy into RC ships yet I have almost never been on a large ship in person. I
  12. Obviously another case of poor customer service these days!
  13. This is nothing. So far we are missing those guys from the gulf states where everything they eat seems to either taste like gravel, or makes you pay twice, once going down and again coming out! I think they would eat pond scum if you put enough spices in it!😭😝
  14. Just a dumb question from a person who has no painting artistic talent at all Jim How do you get the detail and perspective for your ships? I know you do Corvettes a lot, do you have a Corvette model sitting in your studio that you can "pose" or do you work from photos or just do everything from a mental image? I suppose the same question would apply to all of the other ships you portray often in great detail and accuracy.
  15. Lookin good Tom Just as a dumb question as I am being too lazy to look up the length and do my own math. What is the length of the model?
