Just a quick update from Johnathan on the Vickie.
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
