Carlos, You are building a museum quality model my man. You are an excellent model builder.
By the way, did you fish on this vessel or have some attachment?
Keep up the fine work, can't wait to she her sailing.

14th January 2009, 14:40
I have seen many good models of ships, but none with the detail you have put into this Carlos, please keep up the good work and hope you will share many more with us.

Regards Robert

15th January 2009, 11:22
I have said it before, but I have to say it again, your model just gets better and better, Carlos.
Are you going to fit a steam engine and boiler into her, and if so are you going to build it yourself.
That will be something to look forward to, very much.

Carlos Mariano

Carlos, She looks great on the water! I must say I've seen many models but not one with the look you have put into this vessel.
She is the most realistic model I've seen to date...AND she is remote controlled!
Thanks you for giving the ship model builders of the world something to aim at.
You are a master.

11th September 2009, 17:55
Your model is both a work of art and of engineering. Admiravel!
