Has anyone heard if Johnathan Evans is still around with his HMCS Models. I believe he was working on a 1/72 Upholder hull.

Jonathan sent me the following, I'll keep in touch. the masters look awesome.

Technically I'm working on the Victoria master, but not till I get my
(hopefully last) evaluation at work, before retirement, done. I'm a
shop teacher in the day time, but I retire in 3 years, so unless I
PO the boss I should be free to just do my job - build stuff, not
paper push!

Vic is coming along, though not at the original pace, I got side
lined to do a French la Fayette, then the River class, and now a 1/96
Halifax - nearly done (re build master). But Vic is nice and I want
her done as my Aussie Task Force 72 friends are on the list for them
too, and the 100th Anniversary in 2010 , my retirement year too.

Keep emailing me, I won't be offended, I need encouragement in the
grey season. Let me know of any events your group has , as I like to
run to Ottawa o research things occasionally.

The last information I got from Jonathan is that he hopes to have the 1/72 Vickie done by June 2007.

Just a quick update from Johnathan on the Vickie.

G'Day Steve,

Vickie is coming, though not the hull. I've done the masters for

the Fwd hydro planes - complete with fences,
Rudders (though not scribed for tiles),
aft hydroplanes, and
the conn is ready to drill for mast,
the conn top is looking great, (with a hole to be re drilled back again! (misread of port and strd drawings, each misses something from the other.)

In August I'll be on a sub and hope to get shots in the conn.

I was up a lift bridge photographing HMCS Halifax the other day - some great pictures.

I've been very busy making hulls, 2nd latest a 1/72 River class frigate, and the latest a 1/96 Halifax, though molds are booked for some advance orders! But I need encouragement on Vickie as I really want her done, and hull making is taking me away from the sub. Dave Meriman's articles are a great mental help.

I will be in Ottawa in August, I'd love to hook up with you guys at some point, near water would be nice!

Thanks for keeping me on file, have a great regatta, sorry it's too close to end of school year (only 2 1/2 more and I'm free, or retired to ship building - yes finally)

Take Care, Jonathan
