  1. Looks like a set of photos from a Ducati catalogue. Awesome. The only thing that gives it away as not being full size is the rear sprocket.
  2. Very nice boat to model, I did the Billings 1/100 version but that is a far cruder kit which does not do justice to the lines of the original. Your handiwork is exemplary and will produce a superb display model. It tempts me to go and have another go at a bluenose...
  3. Another work of art Frank. I started a W196 a while back but had to abandon it as I couldn't get the body to look right, so I know the skill needed to get something looking this good.
  4. Thanks for the tip Frank, I'm always keen to learn new tricks.
  5. Looking good Mr B, coming on nicely. Nearly time to get busy with rigging wires.
  6. Thanks. Its lime, aka basswood. Thanks!
  7. Hola dudes and dudettes. It's time for another tale from the woodshed, this time it's the iconic Fokker Dr.1 dreidecker. Again, its been left natural wood finish with clear gloss varnish. Everything carved by hand apart from the wheel, which are actually buttons. See you next time
  8. Will you just look at the state of this WIP, all covered in dust and cobwebs. Hello? Anyone home? Must be abandoned I reckon, wonder if anyone will notice if I nick a few bits and pieces.
  9. Not bad, not bad at all. Nicely observed wake.effects.
  10. Excellent work there Mr Bandsaw, that milliput bow wave looks properly splooshy (official nautical term, honest).
  11. Howdy forumites, its been a long time since I rock'n'rolled, but never mind that now. Today, may I present for your consideration a carved wooden series 1 Jaguar E-Type at roughly 1/24 ish scale. Entirely scratch built out of panga panga and basswood, with a little bit of plastic and brass. Took about 6 weeks with numerous pauses while work kept me away from my toys. I Don't think I'll use panga panga again, it is a bit of a pig to carve as it is splintery, and the heavy grain overpowers smaller details. however, it turned out all right, and taught me some more about the joys of whittling. Until next time, keep your tools sharp and your fingers out of the way.
  12. Very, very impressive. You're tempting me to dig out some brass rod and get heating, there's only so much detail I can whittle from a lump of wood.
  13. I vote against lights, purely on the basis of Steve taking forever and a dy to get anything done! The build is looking good, keep going and ignore the heckling from the back row.
  14. Starting to look pretty good. Whats the plan for details like lifeboats , winches and railings etc.? You going to get some photoetch or carry on carving?
