  1. I have this kit under my bench and am looking forward to following your progress on the build - such a beautiful ship - you're off to a great start....also assuming from the previous post that you're back home and all is well! I hope so. Stay safe and bye for now hamilton
  2. Dumb question - does not shipping internationally include Canada? I would be willing to transfer postage costs in addition to the cost of a few of these items if you would be willing to ship north of the border.... hamilton
  3. Thanks for the clarification Druxey - these distinctions are good to know! I'm thinking of English vessels of the early 18th century (1719-1745). Thanks again hamilton
  4. This question has probably been posed and answered elsewhere, but after a few searches I came up dry, so I'll ask here - would hatches & gratings have been rounded down to match the camber of the relevant decks? Thanks in advance for any guidance here! hamilton
  5. Great work on the Bellona Harlequin - despite what you've said about "errors" - I think that the overall feel of the model allows these to fade into the background and (as you suggest) define the personality of your build. Glad you stuck with it! Question - is that your deck in the background of the first shot of the finished model? I used to skate when I was younger, but now have trouble doing basic things on my kid's board. Fortunately he hasn't taken to it much yet so I can still appear to be a useful teacher.... hamilton
  6. So sorry to hear about Dan's passing. His were among the logs that I combed through in detail (particularly HMS Vulture) over my years here on MSW and I received some valuable assistance from him on a couple of occasions. He was an embodiment of this forum's spirit of generosity in passing down knowledge and keeping this hobby alive for future generations. Thank you Dan! And rest in peace. hamilton
  7. Great work Harlequin - quick question - how did you get the snaking done without distorting the forestay and preventer stay? I tried snaking on the Blandford but removed it because I couldn't figure out how to add it without it pulling up on the stays and spoiling their run..... hamilton
  8. Awesome work Harlequin! Victory, Greyhound and Bellona look great together! hamilton
  9. Very interesting Gregory: I built the old Mamoli version of this kit years ago, and I can see that the Dusek version has made some significant changes - most of which (especially the laser carved wood parts) seem to be an improvement. A fun little ship to build for sure and I look forward to following you the second time around! hamilton
  10. Amazing work on the anchors, Ron! I don't think I would have gone past thinking about it and then ordering something "good enough" from somewhere. It's this level of dedication to your build that makes this one a favourite! hamilton
  11. Great work OC - I just looked through your log with my young son, with whom I've been watching these movies - he loved it and I did too! Congrats! hamilton
