  1. I acquired this unfinished model ship a few years ago and am finally making some progress to finish it. It is quite large measuring 40 feet long, 6 feet tall and 5 feet wide. This model was started in 1962 and ended up in a warehouse having been largely taken apart and a few superstructure elements ending up at other places. Over the last few years I was able to relocate most of the parts and reassemble the model to it's unfinished state. After studying the available online images, a trip to the San Francisco Maritime museum to copy their images, building the PYRO/Lindberg plastic kit of the s
  2. I was recently commissioned to restore to "Original Condition" A 1:100 model of the steamship Albertic. The model was knocked over and sustained considerable damage to the port side lifeboat deck Funnels and railings along with vents and all sorts of lines and wire stays. I have made extensive photographs of the condition as I received it, and have begun recording the removal of the damaged parts that were still attached, A few surprises that were not evident when I viewed it at the clients premises have come to light. I cobbled together a quick trolley so that I can move the
  3. Hello to everyone who followed me from the SS Michelangelo build log. I hope that you will enjoy this one as well. This is the first of what will be 7 models built over the next 4 years for the museum at the US Merchant Marine Academy at Kings’ Point, NY. It is a gem of a small museum, open to the public, well worth visiting for the history of the US merchant marine during war and peace, as well as dozens of beautiful and informative ship models. This first model is of the most famous ship that I knew nothing about until I started this commission. The USS/SS Leviat
  4. I just completed restoring a model and would like to know what a fair price for the work would be. I will post the photos in the progression of repairs. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Mike
  5. SS ANDREA DORIA (1952) Good day to all, especially those who followed my build log of the Queen Anne's Revenge (1710). I hope you will enjoy this one as well, and I look forward to your comments and critiques. This project is another large jump across time and techniques. It is the ocean liner SS Andrea Doria, the pride of the postwar Italian Line. Her likeness will be built to the scale of 1/16” = 1’ and will reflect her appearance at the height of her service life, the fateful night of July 25, 1956. This is my fourth liner model and it u
  6. Hello all - Welcome to those of you who followed my build log of my previous ocean liner, the SS Andrea Doria. If you have not seen it, you can reach it by clicking the link below my profile, below. The Michelangelo was a slightly newer ship and sleeker in appearance. To give myself a bit more of a challenge, the model is being built to the scale of 1/350 rather than 1/200 as were my previous liner models. This means that the model's overall length is just over 31", which is a reasonable size for home display. I hope to still incorporate the same
