    Skoda,

    As always, your model is very good. This model when it's done could take some SERIOUS abuse. Very well constructed.

    Man, you see all the innards, the see it build outwards to the outside and then, the ship appears. I don't know of many places where you get this kind of knowledge free, and so readily available. ;)

    I did some hunting and as near as I can find/sorta remember, it was Ekuth who did the ol Rog the first time around. It's been about 10 years or so. But it was free (may have even been here at one point in time)

    I even found this quote, from our very own forums:

    Not sure if that helps clarify the issue or clutter it up.

    This is actually one of the first ships on my list of "things to do." But I haven't worked up the courage and funds at the same time to build it.

    When I do, I think I'll reinforce the insides with balsa and basswood. But I already have a place picked out in my house for it (little does my wife know. Heh heh heh ;) )

    Skoda, that's a fantastic build. I thought Ekuth's was a masterpiece when I first saw it, but now...yeah, I've got to revise that opinion. Can't wait to see it finished. May I borrow some pictures for inspiration?
