  1. Mine was commissioning crew on HMCS Preserver and then on HMCS Annapolis (ex USS Mackenzie). They were indeed the greatest generation.
  2. My father was RCNVR 1942 - 1945 and he said that they just painted them whatever colour they were using to paint the upper works. HTH
  3. One trick that I have used for something like that is to find some wood that is a very close match to those planks. I then use the sanding drum on my Dremel to create a pile of sawdust. Mix that with some white glue or any other binding agent and you will have a putty that fills in the gaps. The fill will hardly be noticeable if your new wood is a close match. HTH.
  4. Jamie, have you tried taking your old hard drive to a shop that specializes in data recovery? It would be a pity to loose the WIP research.
  5. Latest issue of Sea Classics about the David vs the New Ironsides. Interesting stuff.
  6. Try looking in model railroad shops.
  7. Hi Ian - I do get the Modellers Central newsletter. Always interesting and they kn ow how to spell correctly I will have to look up those clamps. Thanks - Grant
  8. I love those clamps that you are using for the planking. Where did you get them? TIA
  9. Standing rigging was tarred so it would be black. Running rigging would be natural hemp. HTH
  10. Hi Thomas - Have you tried http://uboat.net/ HTH
  11. I have a variable speed Dremel but even its slowest speed is too fast. See if you can find a fixed speed Dremel (usually an old one) and then get a variable speed control switch at any place that sells electrical parts. They are frequently used for light dimmers. Do not try the dimmer with the variable speed unit - won't work. I have used my drill press rig with a sanding drum so I can use it to shape wooden parts. Dusty but effective.
  12. I have the Dremel drill press and I am very happy with it. HTH
  13. Thank you for putting a ruler along side. Many people post photos with coins as a reference but I have no idea of their actual size. The coins that I can use are North American, not European or Asian. I don't expect Europeans or Asians to know the size of North American coins either. A ruler solves all those problems. My pet peeve. Rant mode off.
