  1. Looking GREAT! And I totally understand the "tent" dilemma. I've been trying to work on better ways to print to avoid this and it's an on going battle. Often what works for eliminating pits and zits, as I call them, on detail areas makes the prints not print well and vice-versa. It's the biggest set-back in 3D printing becoming a mainstream replacement for traditional in my opinion. We'll get there. Keep up the incredible work and keep us posted. Bill
  2. Awesome! But that's usually the case with your builds.
  3. Doing it pretty much how it comes in the box. So I BELIEVE that's late war, post D-day perhaps? I'm by far not an expert on the ship. I am going to add the floater net baskets, just trying to figure the best way to do them. Not sure I care for the kit PE ones. Could be that I SUCK at photoetch construction.
  4. Great job on this "tough little ship". Keep up the great work! Bill
  5. BEAUTIFUL!!!! Awesome work on this so far. While the Schnelllboot may not be as elegant as a PT boat, they are super cool looking none-the-less. Keep up the great work! Bill
  6. Overall pic where the build stands currently. Got a log of details to add.
  7. Just realized I never started a topic for this build. I'll add some more pics whenever I get a chance if anyone is interested, but in the meantime. Here is a pic showing some figures I modeled up in 3d CAD and printed out to populate the decks. I think they came out fairly decent. There are better 3D printed ones available for sale, but I think these do ok and look better than photoetch figures. More to come soon I hope.
  8. Interesting article. I will be following this study as well as others and see what peer reviews say. And yes, sorry I did misunderstand what you were saying, sorry. As for saying someone can't work somewhere unvaxxed? I'll leave that up to the Supreme Court to decide the legal aspects of that as I'm sure it will get there. I will say it's much different to say you can't work if actually infected with something as opposed to saying you can't if not protected from a potential of getting infected. Hard to fight a case against a potential.
  9. ummm....sure about that? I would be interested in the study that shows that vaccinated people have better antibodies than those that have natural ones built up from contracting the virus. I've heard one of the representative from Pfizer say that the mutations are happening faster because of the vaccine. And just for the record, I AM vaccinated so am not coming from a position of anti-vaxxing, just anti-mandatory.
  10. No words for such a posts. Bless your heart.
  11. I think this is a very common occurrence. One thing I did that helped with this is finding some reason to force myself to just build a kit for fun, the old way. What helped for me for instance was our club had a interclub challenge that only allowed tube glue, paint brushes, and kit out of the box. Because it was a club challenge, you could tell yourself "I know this isn't what my mind tells me to do, BUT I HAVE TO in order to complete the challenge. I think that tricks the part of the brain that normally says "That's not right!" into focusing on the task of completing the challenge. That free
  12. First off. WOW! that's beautiful sir! And yeah, I tried to build a model in the box and it didn't go well at all. 🤣
  13. So what if you use the box to scratch build details....it's out OF the box! ok sorry, I'll grab my hat on the way out.🤣
