    great individual details and "smashing" all together presentation.

    ah; saved the best for last!

    not to worry. "forum communication" is not a perfect means, and we have different cultural and modeling experiences. you have every bit the right to be miffed at what you believe have been shorts for your efforts, and I as much to say "it's a great model - so stop worrying!" perhaps reality is somewhere between?
  4. nice. website, too.
  5. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    of course you are an artist and have created a beautiful model. I was, in a satirical moment, responding to your suggestion I had not the ability to observe what you had modified. everyone is Way too sensitive these days..... cheesh

    if all that is the case, and I've done a fair share of zooming, perhaps you would consider cleaning up the paint on the top of the radiator. the steering arm needs a bit of smoothing, and there are several grille bars not quite parallel. I find it quite disconcerting ... (tongue-in-cheek, of course)

    you do realize hardly anyone notices these things but you. time to step away and take a deep breath; everything is fine as it is.
  8. I've found that to be met mixed; best not.

    how do I do this? searching above title produced nothing. thanks

    granted. but a reread indicates I would not be attempting a scratchbuild nor an exact replica. I consider asking questions in an online forum as part of my research. if my questions are annoying, just don't answer. that'll fix me!

    thank you. i'm watching episode #3 of Para Handy now. quite enjoyable.

    that's a great link; thanks. another plethora o' questions: what's a "funnel" 's function? not pouring through the link(s) yet, so maybe it will appear, but do we have an engine room layout? maybe more to the point, an engine room modeled? i struggle (not only with the cost!), but the hull style which to get if I do build a Puffer. it would probably not be prototypically correct or of any specific ship, but a plausible adaptation. I've seen fiberglass full hulls for the RC guys and might go that route. if so, I would entertain a cargo hold and details of the "innerds", engine room, shipmates quarters, whatever was down there. if I broke down and bought plans, more for study than copying, would the steering gear be depicted? and are one company's plans a better value over another? why is a coal stack different than a diesel stack? again, would plans show a cross section? these are things I ponder, Mates. thanks
  13. for the investment of money and time, is there a better choice for hull selection? I understand the display may dictate, but if that is taken out of the equation, is one type preferred over the other?
  14. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    I think you're going down the rabbit hole. next, some little detail no one will ever notice is become bothersome and that will be changed which disproportions some other bit and on and on... time to let the baby bird leave the nest.
