Well, very fine looking pair of tin cans side by side!!! :thumbs_up_1: Quite an interesting contrast between the two. You've done an outstanding job, as usual!!

Thank you Hank:

Caine was my first printed hull and the 144 scale was somewhat determined by what was a reasonable size for printing and a convenient model size. I did dither about maybe doing Whitehurst in 1:120, a scale I like as I can approach the excellent 100 and 96 scales in what I can do. However practicality won out and it's nice to have a pair. Actually they could be displayed in a single case? Our design program is not optimal at all for hulls, but it can be done with a few warts here and there. A little Zen and magic involved at the best. It is very good for most other ship parts: Anchors, weapons, chain, even masts and spars.

The Holy-Daze are not a good time to get much modeling done, guest, travel and general personal itercourse with family and friends.

Lifelines, spools and rigging, all on the watch list at the round tuit as well as the Christmas Mail Buoy.

Cheers: Tom

why not do 2 more of 1 of each so can have a before & after conversions so this way people can see the actual difference of the 2 ships of each class?

Tom,

I'll be curious to see the cable reel and equipment in place once you've got all that designed/printed. Quite an interesting small boy, to say the least. And Yes! this time of year can sort of deter from a lot of modeling, etc.

Hank

The duo of "cans" will relocate back to the studio as guests tend to toss hats, mittens and packages on the table with disaster an eventuality. The cost of shipping a completed case to Alaska runs in the hundreds of dollars so I may instead make one of the wooden framed one's which I have the skills, tools and materials to construct.

Cheers: Tom
