  1. Thanks Tim, I will check them out, Jerry
  2. Welcome Pascual from Cape Cod, Massachusetts. My wife and I will hopefully be in Barcelona for the first time next year. Enjoy modeling! Jerry
  3. Kurt, Full retirement and being a night person is the answer as well as being a retired dentist who is used to working with his hands!
  4. Tim, I am a Boston native retiring to the Cape several yrs ago. I attended a modeling show at the Constitution museum a couple of yrs ago probably from the Guild. I was blown away by some of the models on display especially the ones made from Cardboard which looked like wood. I would like to explore the clubs and their email address would be appreciated. Thanks, Jerry
  5. Dear KurtH and the other Connie builders on the site. First of all... THANK YOU Kurt for the postings of your build! I would have made many mistakes without your pictures. It is approx 6 months since I starting building the Constitution and I wanted to post a picture of the partial construction. I have taken some “artistic license” with my model. (The bow has solid planking like the actual ship today instead of netting. )The Hull is basically completed and I am now erecting the masts. I will do the lifeboats at a later time. I hope everyone is healthy and getting thru the pandemic. Better tim
  6. Dear TrippleV... Greetings from Cape Cod ! similar to your situation, I have enjoyed modeling over the years. It took me 50 yrs to complete my model of the “Flying Cloud” from scratch using plans and any wood I could find. 3 Kids and 48 yrs of practicing dentistry “delayed “ my completion but when I turned 70 yrs old I decided that I had to complete the rigging etc..which I did. I had a case made by Bluejacket and now have it on display. Following my retirement last year I decided to build the Constitution. I am 6 months into the build and have enclosed a picture of it. I am indebted to KurtH
  7. Avi, I saw your post concerning coppering the hull. I have elected to use copper tape on my models which I score vertically every 1/2 inch or so and get a very nice effect. It is very inexpensive and available on Amazon. Jerry
  8. Avi, enjoy your build of the Constitution. I started it in Nov. 2020. Very challenging but also very gratifying! Kurt H blog is tremendous. He is a craftsman and his postings are very informative and helpful. Enjoy, שלןם... Jerry Berenson
  9. Kurt just a question.., you did a beautiful job rigging the spar deck cannons....how and what did you use as rings on the carriages? My castings from Bluejacket do not have any rings on them. Thanks, Jerry Berenson

  11. Kurt H, I have a couple of questions about your gorgeous model. What paint color, stain and / or polyurethane did you use for the Caprails ? Also did you use the 24 small metal buckets supplied in the kit on the gun deck? Blue jacket does not supply grog or water barrels in the kit so I am going to order some. On a sad note while talking to the staff in Maine last week, they told me that Charlie past away recently. I had just spoken to him . He had made about 20 models of the Constitution for them. They told me it would take him about 5 months to complete a model. Very sad. Jerry
