  1. The only down side of gravel are the weeds popping up
  2. looks even smaller than Vendetta ... nice change from the huge battleships to this. The French did have some very nice shaped ships/boats, not just during the 17th & 18th century
  3. happy birhday, mate. Hope you can celebrate with the family, probably a bit cold for the barbie this time of year Have a great day
  4. A bit sloppy tying your knots when you blow your images up like that. Fortunately it won't show viewed with the naked eye. Nice work on the rigging and antennea
  5. not to shabby mate. I like the way he rigging on your masts turned out. Those bands on the chimney stacks define the role in the "flotilla" (e.g. leader) got that from a book on the V&W types.
  6. the steam winch ... that's an inflated giant thumb right, like some modellers use matches, and pencils to fake the real size of the object Grey will do rather nicely, RGL
  7. Although, I have to comply with most, that the details are stunning, I cannot escap the impression, some of it is still rather coarse for the scale you're working on. There are limitations to what one can see at this scale, and what not. At times the detail is in leaving things out ... You are doing a decent job, RGL . (commenting from the side) Lovely work to see
  8. It took you long enough, so no wonder you fell asleep ... the result is darn good to, skipper ... only next time keep your eyes on the bild, not the desktop Lovely build!

    Received some news today. He is still alive and kicking, but has very little time after the household chores, and taking care of Gwen, she is suffering from the initial stages of dementia. He still sounds like a very feisty man considering his age (in his 80ies) I don't think he shall be back in the short term, but for visiting. He sends his regards to all who know him
  10. You sound like an old man, falling asleep on top of his keyboard, finding out it's instead his x project. Glad you could salvage the damage to the head
  11. Eh oui, Yves, c'est dur pour les Français. Heureusement pas pour tous It seems I've not been to France recently enough I haven't seen the galettes with chocolate chips ... Very nice 3D printed parts. Checked out their site ... they have some lovely parts and kits ...
