Wouldn't sell. Everyone has to have those big SUV's with four wheel drive that they'll never use.

Hi,

A New member. I have just read through the Iron Duke and Mofett builds. I am staggered......What a lot to learn... I am about to start a 1/96 scale CG Ticonderoga build... No where near scratch, but it is a start. If all goes well, after that I will set my sites on a Charles F Adams (DDG 41) from scratch. Never too early to begin the research so if anyone knows of a good source for drawing of the CFA, I would be most happy to hear from you.

To ARH, I certainly hope you get well, my thoughts and good wishes are with you. :thumbs_up_1:

Ron, newbie here, just a short MANY THANKS for showing people like me how to build model ships. People like you and other great builders on this site have given me, and I dare say many others the confidence and knowledge on how to go about scratchbuilding, thing we've wanted to do but never knew how, untill reading posts like yours.
If anyone has anything detremental to say about your methods, tell them to shove it where the sun don't shine! It's people like you who inspire people like me, so thank you.
I hope all is well with your treatment, and I look forward to your next build. :thumbs_up_1:

Mike

Im up and down like a yo yo, im tracing places from my youth, going to the lake district next week, I did a lot of cycling there. In october im going to a steam weekend in North Yorkshire, did a lot of train spotting in my youth, is there a patten here. :heh: :heh: :heh: :thumbs_up_1: :wave_1: :wave_1: ARH
