Are your people made out of paper? I always like seeing people on ships.

Wow, I didn't realize it had been that long ago that I was last on! We bought a house and things have been crazy.

I've built a few others in my spare time though. I now have the Star of India (scratch built) and I'm currently working on the HMS Surprise (also a scratch)

Thank you. I didn't make purples ones! :o:D

What did you use for plans? Floating Dry Dock?

Are the aircraft scratch designs too? or are they reduced kits, maybe with some modifications?

Brilliant work either way. I was on the Midway back in February of this year. I didn't have near the time I would have liked to explore more. Maybe next time I'll board her without the Mrs.
Thanks, plans were made from photos and illustrations on-line. Sadly, she's not 100% accurate. I had to elaborate a little on things I didn't or couldn't see. The aircraft are from scratch also. There again, drawings and photos. I'm dyin' to go back to the Midway!

It's great to have you back!

The ships are excellent.

Did you ever finish the jeep?

What an excellent build, can't believe that I also missed this one!
I love your Star of India, and am very glad you posted a few pictures for us.

I hope you post updates on the HMS Surprise, I'd love to see this one come along as well.

Keep at it, mate!

Cheers!
Jim
