    Hi All,

    Finally made it here!

    I don't know what the problem was about registering. I finally managed with a laptop running Linux but I can't see that has any significance ?

    Welcome to all on here anyway.

    I am not sure about its advantages over Facebook but I can see that it is easier to find stuff. The old Facebook wasn't bad for this but the revamp they did a few months ago just turned it into a glorified wall.

    I was always a bit worried that Facebook could have pulled the plug and or introduced charges so maybe we would have more control of our own destiny on here.

    I'm glad you made it David, welcome...the one advantage that a forum has over facebook is that a forum can have privacy controls, whereas facebook is open to anyone that wants to see it. At present the forum is open to all, but I can lock it down if needs be and make it members only, or I can control who joins and who doesn't.

    Plus...you can find stuff easier on a forum than you can on facebook, which helps enormously.

    Can we copy stuff off Facebook and put it here?

    (There is a lot of useful stuff on Facebook which never sees the light of day.


    Not a problem David, give me a list of what you'd like here and it will be done.

    Can we disable the very annoying advertisments?

    At the moment...no. In the very near future...yes. They will be going as soon as the forum host has the required software, it won't be long I'm reliably informed.

    Hi al,

    new on the forum, I'm for a long time navy modeler.

    By the time I'm working on the French Battleship Richelieu at 1/100 scale :

















    I've begun some 25 years ago the construction of 1/75e scale model of the US Submarine SSN 571 Nautilus, but I've stopped the construction because the lack of documents and drawings shawing the deck and sail organisation.









    Did somebody can help me ?

    Best regards.

    Boris Plotnikoff

    Some excellent modelling there Boris, very detailed work.

    I know a guy in Australia who has a mass of information on the Nautilus, I'll contact him on your behalf.

    The Battleship Richelieu looks wonderful.

    And what a target!

    What happened to the original?

    Richelieu

    Post  Boris Plotnikoff on Mon Nov 22, 2010 4:54 pm

    Hi all,

    the Richelieu will be a floating model :



    Motors and reducers.



    One of the four propellers and shafts.



    Bottom of the hull, governor and shafts bearings.



    Me at work !

    I will take some pictures of the hull of the SSN 571 Nautilus and will send them on your site.

    Best regards.

    SSN 571 Nautilus

    Post  Boris Plotnikoff on Tue Nov 23, 2010 11:38 am

    Hi all,

    some photos of the 1/75 model of SSN 571 Nautilus I've shot to day morning :











    This last one picture is the only one I have shawing some details of the fore deck of the boat and it's quite insufficient to finish the model !

    It is why I ask if some of you have detailed drawings of the boat and other picture allowing me to make a realistic model.

    Best regards.
