That is sad news.  I met him online back in the DDM days.  He was a talented builder and teacher.  His site has done a lot for modelers and his knowledge and generosity will be sorely missed. :(

This indeed is sad news. He was very helpful to me with comments on my log in MSW1 and I echo Mark's sentiments. However, his legacy continues with his website 'Wooden Ship Modeling for Dummies' which is a real treasure trove for ideas, jigs, hints and tips. Here's hoping they manage to maintain it for a long time.

Like it is written on the site :

 

 

"Hubert left for a better world to join Michèle, his wife...."

 

 

Rest in peace, and may his enormous legacy go on to help others in this hobby.

 I was saddened to hear of the recent death of Hubert Sicard. Hubert was the owner of the site  " Wooden Ship Modelling for Dummies". He has left a valuable legacy of creative tips and techniques . I mourn this loss of a valued member of the ship modelling community.

Sad news. Hubert was a great teacher. He helped me out quite alot over the past year. I went onto the site just after his passing to find out about planking that I was working on.

 

I hope that his site is kept up for the future,it's a great tribute to a great modeler. He is happy now,building and being able to share it with his wife again. My wife passed away just over 5 years ago ,I miss sharing what I am working on every day. She always enjoyed my work,and seeing me happy.

 

May the wind be at his back,and always be in port before the storm rises.

 

A teacher always lives on thru their many students. My greatest joy has always been passing on my learned skills in model  and Tool and Die building.

It's our misfortune to announce the departure of Hubert for another world...
Hubert left for a better world to join Michèle, his wife, in Gaspésie, Québec

What a great loss. I admire Hubert for his commitment to detail and to show to the rest of us, how to do things. His site is so full of information it would take days to go through all of it.

Rest in Peace, Hubert.

I emailed the site to express my condolences but also asked if the site was going to continue to be maintained, and it will be.  Such a wealth of knowledge and ideas for a newbie like myself, I was scared to see it go away..

I add my sadness and condolences jn learning (albeit belatedly) of Hubert's passing.

 

I recall Hubert (Surcouf) from DDM days. He was always helpful with tips and advice. As an early-in-his-modeling hobbyist I benefited greatly from his tips, help, and encouragement. I enjoyed his sense of humor and view of life. He will be missed.
