Lightship by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 15 minutes ago
Hi David, Great job on the Model, The Light Ship"AMBROSE" is a good memory for me! I still remember having to go up her mast and change her lights. She uses custom light bulbs rated at 150 Volts can't remember the amps though! Thanks, for sharing the Picture just showed it to the wife. She liked your model as well! Ed.👍👍👍

Help! Mystery Boat by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 7 days ago
When I was in the U.S. Navy, I picked up the nickname "FIGTREE" see my last name starts with "FIG". so I've used it through out life for different thing. If you notice "NTS" is added, because I used to work on Computer Servers "NTS" is the file system that's used on servers! "figtree7nts" Oh the "7" is my lucky number....

Higman Leader Push Boat by figtree7nts Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 21 days ago
You've done a great job cutting the superstructure out of cardboard. how about making her superstructure out of 1/16" marine ply. It would be light and strong!👍
