    Thank you! That is a great suggestion from Bob!
    If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

            Hello, can you tell us where you got the drawings for the torpedo for detailing purposes?
            What model torpedo is it?

                Ah Thank You again for your time.

                Lastly, have you decided as to what the last part of your 1/96 Alpha upgrade kit will be that you will offer to us minions?

                  The tiny little fiddly stuff: clam-shell hatches, bollards, antennas, scopes, outboard motor propellers, anchor light, etc.

                      Nice. Like it's something I always had? … I make an assumption about what you wrote, please correct me if I'm wrong about what you mean by, nice.

                      Nice has nothing to do with my abilities in this Craft. I work at it: I invested a lifetime in pursuit of a passion; I've refined a set of skills. Like any discipline, this is something you work at; something you sacrifice for; something you dedicate your self to; something you structure your existence around.

                      It's nice that you appreciate my good works.

                        by nice I mean you have a given talent with a creative mind. Blessed with steady hands NOT like me and my shakes. I am jealous and inspired by what you post. Always keeps me interested and hooked to see what you do / make next.

                          I'm appreciative of your kind words. But I don't agree with you: My talent was not 'given'.

                          No.

                          My talent was secured through a lifetime of dedicated, directed, purposeful pursuit.

                          And by 'blessed', I take it as simply my winning the 'accident of birth' lottery. 70 years ago I scored big-time:

                          Born to healthy, intelligent, driven parents who gifted me with their attributes; raised in America; at this time in human history; and a member of the most favored race -- whites do get the breaks in this society.... but things are slowly improving on that front.

                          Accident of birth is everything. Some win all the chips. Some are short-changed. Those who win the chips are obligated to exploit every opportunity. I endeavor to do that.
