OK, so I like Monty Python.



Now that says a good deal about a person.

Seriously, thank you for sharing your inner thoughts. Your submarines are fantastic.


Maybe two sparrows could carry it!

Anyone who builds submarines and likes Monty Python as well as Terry Prachett can`t be all bad can they.

Good one Wink, I think you already know what I think about your models and how highly I rate both you and them, looking forward to your release date (private joke, I am sure Wink will understand).

All the best

PeteV

Great submarines for a great guy apparently your VIIc is absoultely outstanding!

Jim, now those swallows should be African swallows who are huger! You need such big beasts to carry a VII C

Hi Wink

Thanks for sharing a little bit of your life and talent with us!
Monty Python is a good resource for... laughs! They are next to submarine related DVD's



Now, going back to modeling stuff, I really enjoyed your VII-C and I liked one thing is not seen very often: the convincing weathering bellow waterline!
Congratulations, and again, Thanks

WinK:
I just read your profile and it gave me some insight into your way of thinking. I agree that model ship building is time consuming. It might not appeal to some builders since many projects can take months to years to build. Take care and God bless.

Raul,

thank you - you are certainly one of the craftsmen I hope to study...I have met and studied 2 excellent museum-quality modelers, and yet your work is so far above them. It is your complete immersion in the project I think, you really understand the subject and have the skill to make it happen. I love all your work, it speaks and resonates for itself...always looking forward to your latest amazing project.
