Lookin for source for plans of USN ships
- by Nilsson On Aug 27, 2015 - 11:23 AM
Two years ago I decided to build a model of the USRC Mohawk and easily obtained plans from the Coast Guard archives. I drew the scale model plans and built the model. Now I would like to build a scale RC model of the U.S.S. Ward (DD-139) or any four piper, however, I can't find a source for drawings. I would appreciate any suggestions.

Yacht Mary Flags
- by CHAZZ On Aug 15, 2015 - 11:22 PM
I'm finishing up this model from the Mamoli kit. I left the flags to the end, and now, when I'm looking at them seriously, I realize that though they're printed nicely on ONE side of some fine cloth, the back shows well but is not nearly as bright and has a rather dull finish.

Does anyone have any ideas on dealing with this condition, like some way to bring out the color on the back? Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Cutty Sark Revell or Lindberg
- by Navarone On Aug 03, 2015 - 6:49 AM
A guy I work with was cleaning out a garage for a friend and knowing my fondness for model ships found this plastic model ship and gave it to me in serious need of repair. I think it is a model of the Cutty Sark by Revell but it could also be by Lindberg. Anyone ever built this model, can you tell which one it might be? There was no box just a wreck like you see. It's about 26 inches long so I figure it must be 1/96 scale.
