hello all


Recommended Posts

I am a long time lurker from Northern NY where I teach organic and medicinal chemistry.  Have been enjoying the hobby off and on for about 20 years.  The contributions from people on this forum have been invaluable to me. I have a strong aversion to photography and refuse to be bound to a cell phone so pictures are not something I can offer most of the time.  I am quite willing to answer any questions on the models I have tackled.  From MS the Niagara and Confederacy, from AL the Endeavour and from Bluejacket my current project the Notman which is done except for the rigging.


thank you all

Welcome, LG! I only took one semester of o-chem in college, but I really enjoyed it. Too bad we cannot see some pictures of your Charles P. Notman, as that is a showstopper kit as well as one that doesn't get too much face time here in social media land.

  • I'll try to clean up my disasterous work space and ask the wife to see if she can get a couple decent shots of the Notman.  It is a beautiful ship for hauling dirty coal.  Also a nice respite from building multiple dozens of canon and the rigging is not over the top difficult.  I'll take the booms and gaffs over yards anyday.
