    My spelling and syntax was atrocious, what I mean was there were a lot of nice models on that website. The Aldes boats were retired USCG boats sold to Uruguay, they have beautiful models of them on that page. :)

    You model looks so wonderful, I hope this ones survives a while, it is so nice looking! :)

    That's what I thought, it is paying off, you can easily see the depth in the pictures. :)

    In a scale this large all those details really pay off big time. Looking forward to more as you get it done.

    Mighty fine work for just your second ship model.

    Time to break out your whetstones so you can sharpen those blades back up. ;)

    Still and all, a mighty fine job for a first model, photographic quibbles aside. ;)

    My first effort sits atop a tall bookcase as a reminder to myself as to why I build ship hulls the way that I do. After denting the sides in from handling it I put it up there and went looking for a little education. One of these days I will start it up again with some experience under my belt.
