are they any good???? to anyone on this newsgroup... i dont have any
interest or the time to do any model boat stuff.. if anyone is
interested give me an email on what you are interested in and we can
make a deal.... you name the prices....
...or, if you don't hear from Larry's friend, email me offline at jtj3
at comcast.net. I'm reading through the Patrick O'Brian series of
novels (Master & Commander, etc.), and it's starting to create an
interest in ship building.
If you like nautical novels, try the Bolitho Novels by Alexander Kent,
26 in the series. I still struggle a bit with O'Brian but with Kent I
feel like I'm there, same with the 4 by Julian Stockwin. In fact, you
can get a nice catalog to use as a nautical novel list at
http://www.mcbooks.com or http://www.nauticalfiction.com /
I still do plastic ships, the bigguns, however I have a wooden kit that
I'll have a crack at one day. Two sides of my shop are dedicated to
woodworking and one to model building.
