  1. For a second there, I thought I had drifted off to a page from Yachtworld, or something, and I was looking at one of my usual searches, "Bristol Cutters for Sale"...and then I saw the end of the pencil.... Really wonderful work. Thank you for sharing. Best Regards, Rick
  2. Drawing in CAD is absolutely amazing! I stumbled upon Solidworks in 2012, when a client I was working for as a consultant installed the software on my computer so I could help him improve the manufacturability of some of his parts and assemblies. It was quite a revelation. I took some preliminary courses in the subject and then I quit my consulting work completely in 2015 and enrolled in a Community College to get a diploma in CAD. Here was a 55 year-old engineer with a degree from McGill going back to school to get a technical diploma. It was wonderful. I now have a
  3. Ahh, I see. I have worked with museums in the past but only on a donation basis. I have never sold anything to a museum (except display cases, of course). Best Regards, Rick
  4. This is a really nice looking model. As you mentioned in an earlier post, the paint job really does look quite realistic for this particular model. With the Vendee Globe in full swing, I wonder if there's a run on this kit at Bluejacket?
  5. Hi Gaetan, The word I would choose would be "meditative". There's nothing quite as meditative as working on a wood ship kit. I am in the middle of building a stagecoach and I am more than tired of it. I want to get back to finishing a wood ship kit I had started.
  6. Yup, I have several on the way at the beginning of November. Also Victories, Dianas, and a bunch of the smaller kits.
  7. Do you need to put black base under the chrome? I remember that was how I got a good finish with those old Alclad II paints.
  8. There's a cool L&P engine in that grey box at the top and the OZ wheels are a nice transkit for F40 builders. Obviously, I am getting some interest on the Pocher kits at the bottom. With the number of people spending more time indoors, there has been quite an uptick in interest on these larger kits. A Note on Pocher kit prices: I have been selling Pocher kits since 1996 and I probably have sold 3,000 or more of these kits since that time. I am pretty sure I have seen every single iteration of every one of the Pocher kits in that time. Prices for the
  9. I just picked up this collection of models that a long-time friend has asked me to sell for him. There are no ships in the collection so I have no problem if the moderators of this site would like to remove the post. The only thing is that I see some interesting modelling posts for things other than ships on this site so I thought this might be appropriate. Please send me a PM if you are interested in any of these models. Please note that they are in various states of quality; some are wonderful and some are of little value. There may be some amazing deals here for th
  10. Lucky you are in Australia if you want to paint at this time of year. When I was building these models (and I still have about ten in my "personal stash"), I never painted between May 15th and October 1st. Just for kicks, it was about eighty-five degrees here yesterday with 95% humidity. Nothing dries. In fact, things get wetter as the day progresses! Avoid painting in humid weather. By the time you figure out what goes wrong, the season changes and then you go, "What the hell was that all about?"
