Introducing, a new feature, a little "expansion" of our News section, the "MSW Artist Profile", a question and answer style article, interviewing, and showcasing various ship modelers, worldwide.

To kick off this new feature, we have our spotlight on Mr. Rob Kernaghan, (RKernaghan), take a look!

I like the idea and think that there is a lot of potential to develop here.

Great feature indeed!

What Rob says, is the living proof of what I have felt in Telford, last year!
A great group of guys, who happen to be ship modelers and good persons make it worthwhile just to pay a visit... Excellent, and really inspiring works, too!

Cheers

Hey all,

Great interveiw and a great guy. If I'm ever on that side of the pond I'll have to let you all know and we can have a few,I'll even but a round. Don't know when that would be since I haven't been across the pond since "89" but who knows.

Great idea Gunny and thank you Rob

Not only an interview but a feast of pictures, I've got to wipe the drool off the keyboard now.

Rob, Skipper hope to meet you at Telford.

Yes, Luciano
I'll be around, much like last year - and although I met Jim Baumann, Rob, Peter, Mike McCabe and so many other ship modelers, I also met Jim Starkweather, Mal Malfield and some other Armorama.UK "British Bulldogs" (still have my badge!!!!), but I miss, with a great regret, Pete Vill (PeteV).
It's a question of arranging a meeting place and a time
Never missed this way

Cheers,
Skipper

I didn't think I'ld like it, but not only did I enjoy the pictures, I really enjoyed reading the article. I especially like his opinions about competitions. I know here in Dallas, some of the competition classes get down right ugly when the results are announced. I'm glad I withdrew from doing that....not that i was any big prize winner, I did win a 3rd and a 2nd once, and to be honest, I am glad that so many like to compete as I get to look at their stuff.

very good idea Mark ! one thing: italic letters are hard to read on a screen . As for Rob's stuff, beyond any comment i suppose
Another of these great modelers that are building just the right period of history

Hi Jean~Bernard!
Take a look at the article again, mate...I do believe that I was in the midst of a re-edit, at the same time that you were straining your eyes to the italics!!

Hi all,

Ain`t you the lucky ones, I tried to read the article and all I got was the following message:-

You are not authorised to view that article

Some one trying to tell me some thing, if so just come out with it, I assume that in time some one will prove it was my mistake, and yes I was logged in.

Think I`ll go back to modeling aircraft (LOL)

Gunny,
When I click on the link I get a message that I'm not authorized to view the article.
Any idea why

Everything looks ok on this end, mates, give it another go...I gave the article a facelift this morning, maybe it was in the "upload" stage when you were trying to view it...

So Mr. Smith,

YOU admit it, it WAS all YOUR fault.

You will never know how happy you have made me, for once some thing to do with a Bl***y computer screwed up and it WAS NOT MY FAULT, Diane pull the cork from that bottle of 22 year old single malt,

Oh how happy you have made me.

I`m H. A. P. P. Y,
I`m H. A. P. P. Y,
I know I am
I`m sure I am
I`m H. A. P. P. Y,
