Outstanding work. Take it from a true amateur

Hello Ab,

We had some e-mail contact some weeks ago, hope you remember
I started to read all your posts in detail now and I must say you are much to modest when you say you are an amateur. Your models look really awesome. I tried building a "historical" model ones, but it turned out as a real disaster. Building historical models is very different form the models I have build so far (Imperial Japanese Navy Ships). With my Japanese ships, I have a years long experience in how these ships were build and all the detailing of them. That is the same with building historical ship, first you have to know all the building details and techniques used in these days of these ship, which you do from your days working as a conservator in museums. Translating these skills into modelling is in this way a lot easier, despite you now have changed your material to "mainly" paper.
I think it will take a while, if ever, before I start a historical ship (I am not getting any younger). It would take a long time to make myself aquinted with the building techniques of these ships. In the meantime I will enjoy your builds very much !!
