I know that you are probably busier than you care to think about with work, family, the site and even the occasional model building session, but I thought I would give you a link you might enjoy. The guy builds a fishing vessel using a 3D pen, of all things. I am guessing that it is around 1/72nd scale… ish?
As I watched the first of the 3 episodes I thought of you, and the Shipwrights site. After all, things like his method of marking the deck planking are ingenious, and can be done by anyone. Then he makes the door handles, and anchor chains… well, the list goes on.
One a side note… your builds are very entertaining, and are one of the things that keep me coming back to the site. Considering that I haven’t built a ship in decades that is something. Looking forward to more…
Wishing you and yours happiness and health…
Bob just sent me a link to a modeler building a ship using a 3D pen. It is absolutely AWEOME! Watching the unfamiliar (at least to me) technique is a reminder of just how diverse and ever-changing our supposedly traditional hobby can be! I stand in awe of this modeler. 3D pens… who knew? But there was a time when injection-molded plastic was new… and photoetch metal, airbrushes, acrylic paints, resin, etc., etc., were once new too… so I guess I’ll have to try it out one of these days.
Anyway, thank you Bob for sharing this little gem!
