Ship Model Fittings: Did you see our shipping cost comparison blog? To recap, if you order up to 10 fittings packages from Cast Your Anchor, you will pay $4.50CAD for shipping. If you order the same fitting from our competitor in the US, you’ll pay $38.99US. This is not a joke!
Building the Bounty: As the build proceeds, some of my favourite tools are the diamond coated files (41044), the 45 degree curved micro tweezers (42018) and the mini square (45021). And OK – although I preach using Titebond wood glue for all wood to wood bonding, you can’t beat CA glue when you get tired of being a clamp! Point taken.
I have converted the wooden pails they include in the Artesania Latina kit to copper pots and even inserted some plant like material. I have also added oars and sails to the Jolly boat.
Industry News: We continue to struggle with the collapse of the North American ship model manufacturer’s distributorship. Please allow plenty of time should you wish one of the Mantua model kits like the Sovereign of the Seas or the Soleil Royale.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL OF OUR FRIENDS FROM THE STAFF AND MASCOT OF CAST YOUR ANCHOR
