One more question... and honestly, I am not trying to pick on you- I like what you are doing.

My question is, from time to time, you post links to your photobucket page.... and I see what appear to be outstanding model yachts and replicas of them (looks like you have production up to some level) Why don't I ever see or hear about any of these outside of captivity??? Have you offered them for sale?

the lineup of Ensigns... the Colgates... the U24's! ???

From the photo it sure appears to be a viable production facility but quite odd that there's no commercial link to accompany them.

They really do look great, Dean!

Cockpits going to be wood slats like the older originals? I have spent some time aboard 1:1 ensigns- nice sailing boats.

What boat is that on the rack above the Colgates in the picture hermill attached?

Autorized and "personal/custom built"

I build custom/personal sailboat models of any sailboat post 1969. I also sell kits and RTR of sailboats under agreement with company's and designers. There will be many built both ways. DD

Re: "Authorized", of course that would be between you and a holder of rights- what little I know, I'm confident you do things the right way.

Just thought I saw a J 111 in the lineup. (suggests you are a busy man!)
