Dan – your news left me stunned and initially speechless, made more poignant by travelling a similar journey over recent years. Seeing you name listed in the ‘recent posts’ section made a post a ‘must’ to read, your work in all modelling mediums pure inspiration. I’d never appreciated just what could be achieved in card! Your sage advice and encouragement genuinely motivational and appreciated. Thank you. I struggle to think of anyone for whom the term ‘legend’ is more appropriate.

Best wishes,

Graham.

Dan, I’m so sorry to read this. 

Know that your contributions here have helped so many people you’ve never met and who probably didn’t say thanks at the time. So for me, that’s a big thank you for all the help, inspiration and solid work here on the site.

You’re a top bloke. Go well my friend.

Dan we have never met but know that a sadness for your plight grips me. You are the second person in two months who has had to put down their tools doing what they have loved to do. Would that I could personally offer you words of comfort and peace......

Dan,

  I wish you and yours strength and courage in facing the trials ahead. You leave here at MSW a legion of friends and admirers; a beautiful body of work and an unfillable void. It saddens me to hear such news but I’m glad you had the time and bravery to share this grim news with us and to read of the love and respect that MSW has for you.

   -Eric

Hi all,

 

I thought I'd give you all an update on my current situation, as I've received over 100 replies to my condition. WOW - I was expecting maybe 15 or 20 .... thank you all very much for your concern and good wishes. What a family you all are to me :) :) :).

 

I'm still hanging in there, although nowhere near at "full capacity". The pain is being managed quite well now that the docs have finally arrived at the right dosage of medication. I'm going in for a treatment later today that hopefully will keep me going for a while yet - perhaps even years. Fingers crossed.

 

I know I said that the Bulgar locomotive and wagons would be my last model, and I didn't want to start a model on MSW that may have remained unfinished, but I've managed to keep going with another card kit which I'll post pics of a little later on when I get nearer to completing it. It's a Harbourside diorama of a section of the Hamburg docks from HMV, including a freighter (so it will be in the "normal" Build Log forum under "Cross Sections, Guns and Dioramas" in the Index). Here's a taste of the kit's cover art :

So far I've done the Warehouse/Background section and I'm getting very close to finishing the Freighter. How much of the rest will be done will be up to my health, but all the other pieces can be classed as "optional".

 

Cheers, and I hope to see you all for quite a while yet :).

 

Danny

Absolutely! Hoping that can come true, with my every fibre. Rooting for you!

Fantastic news, Dan! It so nice to hear some really good news in these difficult times with so much suffering and heartbreak in the world currently.

 

I'm so glad you are back in the boatyard. It looks like a very interesting and challenging model. I'll be following along. These card models amaze me.

 

Stay safe and keep up the good fight!

 

Best regards,

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
