Hi All. Many may already recognise the 'nutter from Munich' 😁
but I just wanted
I first stumbled across this site and enrolled here in 2014 but was still in harness and trundling around the world working with various navies and shipyards on all sorts of naval ships from small Fast Patrol Boats through subs, Corvettes and Frigates up to LPDs, Heli and Escort Carriers. So I didn't have much time for model build
ing (sounds better than 'Modelling' somehow 😁😲) or contributions
to the site, but I did try to keep up to date with advances, as I always did in my profession - Naval COMMS system
s - and dipped in and out of this site without getting involved.
Since I retired last year I have become an active member and have also dipped into, and registered with some, other Model Boat forum
s in various countries.
But in all of them I have never found such an international, friendly and knowledgable bunch as on this site. Or such a well organised site where it is 'relatively' easy to find the info you need, or to just ask and get informed answers pronto. Sure there is room for improvement in some areas but "Tempus fugit" and things move on - so is it also on this site.
I understand that a facelift and changes are afoot😉 whatever the outcome I'm sure you won't find a better web site
for informed (bin there done that!) info on model
boat / ship build
ing as well as research on the original vessel
s this side of the asteroid belt!
Welcome aboard and Happy Building and Sailing,
All the best, cheers, Doug 😎
