  1. Hi Patrick. Looking forward to watching you create another one of your splendid models.
  2. Hi David - thanks for looking in, I enjoyed this build. I used 2D CAD to develop the framing and some other components, but I don't do any 3D CAD work. Sorry to disappoint. By the way, County Mayo (especially the town of Westport) is one of my favorite areas in Ireland.
  3. Hi Will - I've been off the site for a long time and just started checking back in. Nice progress on your Syren - looking really good.
  4. Hi Rich - I've been off the site for quite a while and just saw your build. Great work so far. I'll be following along.
  5. I agree with Grant - that's the way I use MSW. I just want to echo everyone and say a big thanks to all of the administrators who work to make this a great forum.
  6. Hi Rich I've been off the forum for a while due to moving to a new home. Glad to see you're finished your build, and it looks great. Bluejacket has a kit of the Spray. If you don't want to build from a kit, I think you could just buy the plans. http://www.bluejacketinc.com/kits/spray.htm
  7. Hi Patrick. I've been out of commission from a modeling standpoint for quite a while due to moving to a 'new' home, and have been off the forum for over a month. I was happy to see your recent entry on my first time back - she looks great! Well done.
  8. Hi Don - really nice work. When securing a knot, it's better to use matte medium or a diluted white glue to avoid the 'plastic' look. When I don't want any sheen from glue I use Scenic Glue from Woodland Scenics.
  9. Hi Doug - very nice work on your Leon. I've been looking in now and then, and just saw your comment on the lumber hatch. One thing you might try is to mix some sawdust from the same wood as the planking with Scenic glue and use it as a filler. Scenic glue (from Woodland Scenics) is a PVA glue that dries without any sheen, so when you use it this way the wood dust visually blends in with the wood around it and flaws are covered really well. I've used this approach with small gaps between planks and it worked for me.
  10. Nice work, Chris. Keep the updates coming - you're making great progress.
  11. YT - Please send me a PM. I don't check MSW posts too frequently, but was alerted to your request by another member.
  12. The original list of free books went fairly quickly. In continuing to get ready for downsizing I'm once again offering the following books free of charge - you just pay the postage. For the time being I'd like to ship a minimum of three books for each request, and will be using PayPal for payment of the postage. Due to time constraints I need to move these books by end of January. Any remaining books will be donated to a local charity.

  13. We'll be downsizing to a smaller house, and there won't be enough room for many of the books I've collected since I started modeling.
