  1. Japanese Method

    . NAFTA what would President Trump think of this....... lol .... Agreed. Would be a very good idea to reserect a North American SIS Association .
  2. Japanese Method

    Thank you. Good articles and a lot of excallent information. Too bad the SIBAA went under Rollie aka bluenoser.
  3. Japanese Method

    If you find it, I would like a copy as well.
  4. How to Build a Bermuda Sloop (for beginners)

    Thanks for the info. Back to my drawing board.
  5. How to Build a Bermuda Sloop (for beginners)

    I take it your hull is NOT in two pieces, which will be pegged/glued together when the model is finished in the bottle .
  6. Schooner Edwin - my first SIB

    I use glaziers putty as well. It is made to stick to glass. I don't use acrylic paint, though I will try that. I use Prussian Blue oil paint mixed with the putty. It's messy but gives the sea a good colour. Off white for the waves.. However it takes a long while to dry. Even then, one should prevent any sails from toughing the sea. Blue seas are deep water. Greenish are closer to shore.

    Lovely SiB What is the sea made of?
  8. How to Build a Bermuda Sloop (for beginners)

    Thanks for the info. I had noticed that on the stamp of the Turks & Caicos Islands 10C ER 11 picture of an Bermuda Sloop that there was a sail that was taken in. It is between the mast and the inner jib. I assume that there are stud sails in your drawing as well. Again thanks for the info and I look forward to the rest of your build.

    Where did you get the picture that is in the bottle? The one that is of different sizes.
  10. Roberts Situation

    You are correct.. It was not you who started the conversation about closing this site. My apologies for missunderstandind the nature of the issue and who was involved. Nevertheless, there are people who will aid in defraying the cost, I am one of them, though I dont contribute much to this site.. No more to be said by me. Other people can chime in..
  11. Roberts Situation

    Begs the questions. If you are not interested in SIB, your words not mine, why are you here? Also why would you spend $$$$ on a site you have no interest in either by starting or being part of it, even when people have offered to help out regarding the cost I stand by my statement that people have other lives besides modeling. I for one dont want you to leave or move this site. Just explain the situation as it is unfolding if you would please. ...

    OFF TOPIC. This conversation should not be here..
  13. MOVED from - RMS St Helena ex Northland Prince

    To All , I for one will not move to Fdcebook or Twitter or any other site similar to them. I have objections to them. As far as this site goes, if you choose to go Bob, so be it. Remember that there have been offers of help. I would suggest and hope that others with more electronic/.Internet savy then I would take it over even if I pay a bit via PayPal. I am building a Bluenose right now. Why haven't I put pics on, just lazy. I like this site. People do have other live other than modelling.
  14. MOVED from - RMS St Helena ex Northland Prince

    I for one am more that ready to pay my share via a Paypal account. I dont contribute a lot except the odd comment.. But this site is more that worth it.. I dont like Facebook or any such sites. Just out of curosity, what is the mean age of people here? Im 66.
  15. Pilot cutter Jolie Brise in a bottle - Scale 1/240

    Excellent work. Having been on the ship recently, your model is very accurate. Carry on. Can't wait to see it go into the bottle.
