  1. You're doing a great job here Ron, and a great service to 'less experienced' wood modelers (such as myself)! Really appreciate your taking the time to show each step with detailed explanations and professional diagrams. Steve M
  2. Great Job T, and a nice presentation!
  3. Well, I believe you are in a bit of luck for at least the Jylland kit as it is presently on Ebay https://www.ebay.com/itm/Billing-Boats-Fittings-of-Denmarks-FREGATTEN-JYLLAND-OUT-OF-PRODUCTION-1960s/124556955626?hash=item1d002c4fea:g:h3IAAOSwzA9gEHnG Mike's advice is good for the others as well, I've had good experience with Cornwall - I have taken a cursory look at the fittings for the Billings Dannebrog and found that most of them are still available from Billings, inter alia - check with MSW sponsor Ages of Sail also
  4. Hi Alvin, and welcome to MSW - Bluejacket used to carry an excellent 1/96 scale solid hull version but it's been discontinued - every now and then one pops up on Ebay - of course, it's always buyer beware of missing parts/plan sheets/whatever - but at least Bluejacket is still around and active, you would be able to get just about all the parts you need and the owner, Nic, is on this site building the Red Jacket clipper. Why not tell us a little bit about yourself - previous experience etc, and what led you to this site and the Flying Cloud in particular - the knowledge contained within this site and the members is second to none......Steve M
  5. Yeah, right!! That spot is either the biggest distraction or the biggest inspiration........green with envy......
  6. Welcome Sundt - I've always been intrigued by these big Colin Archer kits - will you be sailing it or just static? Steve M
  7. You're doing a great job on this George - just like your Sovereign - I tackled these kits in the 60's, but not with the maturity or results you achieve - good to see them getting justice! Steve M
  8. Topnotch, Richard! Stands up to the close-up test!
  9. Just a guess, but I would try a two part epoxy - worked very well on an outdoors project I had with plastic and metal............there should be a lot of people that know more than I..........Steve M
  10. A movie without a soundtrack is not nearly the movie it COULD be, whether it's pop, classical or something avant garde such as Tarantino's offerings. I used to have a CD set that was titled music at the movies - a whole set of music, mostly classical from various movies. Two of my favorites are the movie Excalibur's "O Fortuna" by Carl Orff, and who can forget Apocalypse Now's "Ride of the Valkyries"! The music plays as much or more a part than any character, whether in the background setting and amplifying the mood, or in the forefront, where the action is choreographed to it, as in Dave's Punisher example. I would highly recommend reading "The Elegant Universe" by Brian Greene. One of my biggest take-aways from it was that we are all made of impossibly small strings vibrating at impossibly high frequencies - a veritable cosmic symphony, with everyone playing a different set of tunes............of course it's all theory...........Steve M
