More like that please Jack! It looks as if it could be a customs cutter?

That looks very interesting so you can't just leave us in suspenders can you ;-)a

It's a schooner, "Hannah"

The kit was meant for a beginner, and so left off a lot of details to simplify the build. Although I never made a ship model, adding the details will just take a bit more time. I'm stuck at making the chain plates but I'll figure it out, and I can start putting all those subassemblies where they belong, then start the rigging. Start with the guns, then anything along the masts, then work outwards so you aren't trying to work around something that is finished, but in the way.

Hi, first post in this part of the forum. I have a terminal fly tying and photon addiction. Love afternoon naps. Will be dead before I stop “Looking!” Sugar highs are another fault. The pursuit of any fish with a fly on rivers and still-waters is a genetic aberration that is as terminal as photon addiction. Absolutely no motivation and procrastination is a way of life. May I show this Wallywing dry fly: obviously made with feathers, but tied on the hook in the reverse so that the wing rests over the barb.

That's not only a lovely photo but also an impressive bit of fly tying Flywing! It is beautiful and probably quite deadly if you are a fish?

That's quite a history there Jack and a lovely looking boat from the photo in the link.

I look forward to the launch photos. Dry launch of course ;-)a

I have the plans for a 4 foot model of the Cutty Sark in the loft, but that's a 'this time, that time, some time never' me thinks.

Shame you're not this side of the Pond lass! They are great!

Thanks, Jon! I ship worldwide! :lol: BUT, these sold this evening! :-)

Melissa these are so nice.
Something about special miniatures, especially in small groups like these.

Thanks, Richard. :-)

The Cutty Sark or any square-rigger more complex than a brig looks like a career to build as a model.
My build will probably be 90% as good as that image, but that was made by someone with a lot more experience, and likely from scratch. But that 10% makes the difference between something that looks good, and something that makes people say "wow!"

Just like pictures in this forum.

Birds eye maple is lovely wood and you have done a lovely job the Ra. I have never used it but would love to get some on my lathe.

I made a watch stand a while back, but for my pocket watch and the double Albert.

Just some scraps from an old oak TV cabinet I was given. That cabinet have yeilded all sorts of things ;-)a The brass pins were turned on my wood lathe using my wood tools from some ⅛" brass rod I have.

Thanks Jon, It has it's moments on the water. I've used it when nothing was hatching and brought them up from the bottom.

Well, 2 items: one is a small leather messenger bag and the other one is a painting I did for a client from her dull photo. Oil on canvas 22x28x2"
The bag is all gorgeous Italian leather.

Excellent work Renata
I'm always amazed how painters get with a brush and some paint, life into an inanimate object!
And it looks so simple but to the unskilled impossible.
I expect that carries a lot of meaning to the couple.

The bag! Looks like it has some useful and functional design features.
Is the strap and buckle a fastener or is it hiding a magnetic catch?
It looks as though it would hang nicely which is important IMO.

I agree with Richard. The bag is rather smart lass! And the painting is quite vibrant.

"I'm always amazed how painters get with a brush and some paint, life into an inanimate object!"

Nobody has managed that with me yet Richard :oops:

I'm not really into bags, but I love the angle on the flap with the buckle. I don't recall ever seeing that.
