If this sounds like you, you've come to the right place.
This website is where I share tips and tricks I’ve picked up in this hobby for the last 25 or so years. It’s not rocket science, but sometimes the wheel gets reinvented one too many times in this hobby.
I do admire those that can spend several years, adding detail after detail on a single model. I truly envy the patience they possess and, more importantly: the time they have available!
Most of the techniques I use are time-saving ways to fast-forward through mundane and time consuming tasks. Because, let's face it - there are only so many hours in a day...
Little by little I'm building up a small catalog of plans for download. First out is the civil war era USS Monitor and her nemesis - the CSS Virginia. As time permits, I'll add more plans.
Current projects include a balsa PT 109 and a number of other model ship plans. Waiting in the wings are ironclads, pirate ships, torpedo boats, battleships, tugs, destroyers, a New York pilot schooner and many other.
OK, enough talk, let's build something. And don't forget to have fun doing it!
