About

This blog is an intermittently-updated resource that discusses various model-building projects, construction and painting techniques, and the history behind the subjects being modeled.  The author is a lifelong modeler, former curator at a Smithsonian-affiliated history museum, and currently a collections manager working to preserve, document, and exhibit the 5,600 artifacts raised from the wreck of Titanic by RMS Titanic, Inc.

I do hope that you come along, and enjoy your stay as we delve into these topics!

  1. Hi,
    congrats for this great site really enjoyed your Hood build, will give the old Airfix 1:600 Hood kit a try in the near future, thankfully Tom’s Modelworks purchased the rights on WEM PE and still will provide the PE sets for these old kits.
    On the above picture you wear a magnifying glass, which model/brand is it?
    Is it really practical/helpfull to work with?
    All the best for your upcoming projects!

    • Hans,

      Thanks for the kind words – I hope your own Hood build goes well!

      The device in question is called an Optivisor, and it’s pretty much essential for small pieces (ala 1:700, for example). I couldn’t recommend it more.

      Thanks for reading and commenting!
