Thanks to all of you for your patience over the Holidays. I was busy with family and fun for the last two weeks or so and barely stepped into the workshop. But now I am back at it. I know many of you have contacted me about some some items not in stock but rest assured that over the next two weeks or so they should be ready. I apologize for the delay. I have several sizes of rope and blocks being made as we speak and should be fully stocked very soon. I just finished up a bunch of 3/16" and 1/8" blocks as shown above....1800 of them in the last two days and the image shows them fresh out of the oven. Thanks again for understanding as I was relaxing with some much needed rest and family time. 2016 should be a banner year for us and I will even have a few new products coming out throughout the year. Thanks for your patience..... and thank you for your business..... Serving machines are also now back in stock for those who have asked over the last few weeks.

I am happy to report that wood packages of ready-milled strips are now available for the Winnie Group Build. I know that many of you were hesitant to jump in on this project because you didnt have a Byrnes Saw or equivalent. But now all of the wood strips for planking and other elements can be bought through MODELERSSAWMILL.com http://www.modelerssawmill.com/ Joe will cut your wood for the Cherry or Alaskan Yellow Cedar projects. I have painstakingly reviewed every chapter so far completed and all future chapters to determine what strips will be needed. Its mostly for hull and deck planking but there were a few other odds and ends. So if the only thing stopping you from jumping in to build this fantastic model was the fact that you couldnt mill your own strips......there is no longer a reason not to join in on the fun!!! The package includes hundreds of strips including 310 milled 1/4" x 3/64" planking strips for the hull and decks. A few misc. wood sheets are also thrown in there for good measure where needed.

Well, I'm coming into the build a little late but looking forward to some fun. Don't have a lot of experience - several large scale plastic WWII battleships and carriers over the years and two wood ships, the Sharke from an old Sergal kit and the Bluenose from Model Shipways. looking to take things up a notch with this build. My intention is to cut all parts myself (we'll see how that goes). I am in the midst of cutting bulkheads using a 9" bandsaw and scroll saw where necessary. Started out using Elmers gluesticks but have found Loctite spray adhesive to be much better for the paper patterns. using lite ply for bulkheads and birch ply for bulkhead former. I have really enjoyed reading the discussions and try to read some more each evening to catch up and pick up some tips.
