    Well, slow on builds and I'm trying out a new camera I pick up for work. Now you have to deal with me. Here are some group photos and some in progress.

    Used a nice piece of cherry stained poplar for the base. [​IMG]

    After seeing that you are into the boat thing philo426 I wish that the miles between us wasn't so great because I would set you up with some boat (ship) stuff if you wanted some... I have some vintage wooden boat kits that I have acquired ,mostly sailing vessels unbuilt , partly built , lots of wooden planking, and even a couple of large , 42" class pond yachts from the 30's or 40's all wooden planked hulls no rigging, but I have a crap load , alot of, sails and rigging.... I have one vintage pond yacht that I restored and sailed that I will keep around but all the other stuff I would like it to be some place else...... here's a shot , crappy one,of some of the extra mast's, sails and rigging...if you or any one else has a interest in the stuff I can post some pics or PM them to anyone of the stuff and would make someone a hell of a deal....but I am located in Oregon so that could be a problem...or not.... just putting it out there...keep on building...

    Painting is going to send me to the asylum. I had this looking great. Then, at midnight
    I get the idiotic idea to put one last wet, shiny coat on it. That last coat immediately went
    to eating the previous coats. I pretty much saved it. Painting is going to send me to the asylum!

    Thanks, I'll keep that in mind. I gave it a little drying time and starting sanding...and sanding.
    It looks pretty good now with a coat of primer and two of color. I don't have an airbrush and
    each rattle-can spray job is a trip to adventureland.

    Thanks, some of the pics are grainy from resizing them in 'paint' (dialing in camera). There's a lot of individual pics in my albums.

    Every time I paint, I fear 'getting committed'. The thought of the final clear...I remember the night before the Junior Prom. Instant recollection!
    Paasche or not, special compressor...the inner voice: "This is not safe..." :eek:

    You know you're looking at a model of a '55 but that thing is crazy realistic. It's kind of like
    a punch to the stomach, letting me know I'll never get to that point in model building.
