Help building 1/48 scale LA Boat

Postby GreyAkula52 » Wed Mar 06, 2013 9:28 pm

Greetings and Salutations,
I need the assistance of someone close by Maryland / New Jersey area who can help me
by casting three (3) hulls only from my molds.
These molds full 90 inch long top and bottom are parts I need fabricated. I'd like to speak
With anyone who can do this for me ( of course there will be monetary compensation) since I am
physically unable to do the work from recent Liver and Kidney transplant.

My contact information;

Andre Burgess
8503 Chervil Road ,
LAnham, Maryland 20706-3904

Hey Andre! Is this hull detailed or naked? I may be interested in helping you out. Yes, I know I am in Montana....Which is about 2,800 miles farther than you are looking for....

I hope you get healed up soon, Buddy!

Hello Captain,
I did not know if you were still around building boats.
This mold set, top and bottom hull, sail, bow/ sail planes,
Stern planes and rudders is complete.
What I need is to have three (3) hulls taken from these molds .
The ancillary parts....... I can fabricate from alumilite. They turned out
Really nice. This work was started by Dennis DeBoer.
I purchased the complete set 18 months ago with the intention
to supplement my retirement income and to replicate the
three "Flights" built. I've cleaned up the molds and conditioned
the working surfaces. I can forward to you photos .

Thanks for your response......
Andre S. Burgess, P.E.

It never went any farther than this with my involvement. I'm still willing to lay them up for Andre, but the shipping costs are ridiculous!

I hadn't heard this. I'm sorry; I always liked talking with him. I remember chatting with him when we ran our boats in the reflecting pool in DC some years back.
Condolences to his family :(

I've been away for a while and this is by far some of the worse news I could have heard. Andre was a good man and will be sorely missed!

I do not know him, but it is always a Great Loss when a FRIEND leaves of us.
Not to mention the number of modellers is still declining.
I know it may be late but Sincere Condolences to Family and to those who knew him
.
