Thank you for the compliment, Michael. I guess we are now the newest members of the "Mutual Admiration Society", heh heh. I think that those of you who work with the larger scales have no room for error. ANY little "problem" is easily noticable, therefore your skills need to be spot on. At 1/350, I can hide a multitude of sins, sometimes even with photography. But the large scales, like you and Jason do, could potentially show every little flaw or mistake (although I've yet to see ANY). Pulling that off shows the true skill involved.

I've never scratch-built anything before this build began. I have learned quite a bit from the members of this site and I'm always willing and waiting for more to learn. A couple of successes can really boost one's confidence and the mistakes are just part of the process. I don't know if I will EVER take my model building to the level of casting my own parts...but never say "Never", right?

I have a Chris Craft from Dumas that needs all new deck fittings. The kit supplied parts are so poorly cast they're almost unusable. One option is to just buy new ones from Dumas... but the other option would be to try my hand at casting the parts. It would be a fun challenge and the upside is that the "new" parts might be better detailed.

I look forward to your next post...

Matt
