    Thank you Ron,
    HMB Endeavour was a kit that my father left to me when he pass away this June.

    The Halcon was about the cheapest model boat kit you can purchase from China, it comes with instructions that are next to useless.
    I just thought I would see if I could make something that looked reasonable from rubbish.

    The little Victory I have made from what ever I could find just lying around the house, It is still a work in progress.

    Martin.
    If it looks right it probably is.

    Hi Cash,
    The rigging dose take a bit of doing and can be confusing also very fiddly but if you take your time and just concentrate on one little bit at a time you soon get the hang of it.

    Rick,
    Thanks I do try.
    And my wife says I am extremely trying LOL!!

    Martin.

    Hi Martin!! Very nice work on your static models. The Endeavour is really sweet. After looking at your rigging and ratlines I will no longer complain about the rigging on my Deans Kristina. That was nothing compared to the work you have done.
    Anyway, good to see you back at it, hope all is well with you and yours.

    Hi Guys,
    Thank you all for your comments.

    I am not sure but did there used to be a tab on each post saying reply or comment?
    I thought there was so that you could comment to a specific post.

    We seem to have a lot more New Members since I was on here last.

    As I am part way through my little Victory build I don't think I could do a build log on it, but if members are interest I could post updates on her.

    Martin.

    Great to see you again Martin. You really have been busy. Mojo back I see. Super work. I hope that Tescos can keep up with the demand for yoghurt and ice cream pots.๐Ÿคฃ
    I cannot promise to finish one project before starting another. I know, I tried.

    Thank you Doug,

    No I have not done much with my U552, I keep getting distracted with making these other models.

    Maybe one day I will get around to finishing it LOL!!
