  1. Gregory and Roger, Thank you both for these very helpful responses. I knew this was a group I could count on. I've just ordered some from Syren and will take a long look at the other builds that you suggest here. I'm definitely game to make my own. Roger, thanks for pointing out the metal line and block, which I didn't recognize, as such. My father, Capt. USN, 1935-64, would be mortified! OK! I am really encouraged by this info, and the group.

I'm primarily a 1/32 scale WWI aircraft modeler but have long had ideas of a nice build of the blockade runner, PS Hope, and, in my deepest dreams, a full build someday of Jean Boudriot's 74 Gun Ship. Cooler minds prevail, however, and I have the kit for Syren's Meday Longboat and will start with that. At the
  4. Can anyone suggest a few good online sources for basic ship fittings? I'm scratch building a British WWI aircraft lighter. I've been finding bits here and there, but not one basic supplier here in the USA. Does such place exist? Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Cheers from NYC, Michael
