  1. i have a model of a 3 masted ship that has been in my family for about60yrs. it needs some repair which beyond my capibilities. the ship is about 22″ from bow to stern, it is about 29″ from keel to top of main mast. it is a 3masted man of war with 20 canon. the ship is wood and was hand carved, i don’t know how old it is. i would like to see it go to someone who could repair it and be somewhere that people can see& admireit. i live in Loveland if any one would be interested in having this ship please contact me.thank you.

  2. Guy: Thanks for your comment and offer. May I invite you to bring your model to a meeting of Rocky Mountain Shipwrights where 20 or more members can view it. Then someone might offer to do the repair. We meet every third Saturday at Rocklers Woodworking and Hardware, 2553 S. Colorado Blvd. I will also ask our skipper to mention your comment at the next meeting if you can’t make that one.

  3. I recently met one of your members at Pres St Lukes and enjoyed our visit. I am also ship model builder from western Nebraska. If anyone has pictures of completed Flying fish I would love to see them. I would also like to see the ships he has completed. Sounds like good club

    • Hi, Milton.

      I’m not aware of anyone having modeled the Flying Fish, at least no one has shown this model at our annual show (Oct. 11 thru 19 this year – please come if you can!). I’ll inquire at our meeting this Saturday.

  4. Hi, my name is Dave, I inherited an old model ship that is in desperate need of repair. It was salvaged from the home of a 97 yr old that had to be moved to a nursing home. Her daddy & great daddy built this ship. I saved it for her daughter or son to keep in their family but they have no desire to do anything with this keepsake. I was hoping that someone in your club might be interested in giving this heirloom a new lease on life. Please feel free to call me or provide email address where I could send pictures. The boat is in Ft Collins if that makes any difference…daytime wk: 800 443 8307. Ask for Dave. Thanks for your consideration.

  5. Hi I am interested in getting a hold of Erik Collett to see if he still has the plans for the Billings Norske Love, I have found a model of this ship but the rgging is not finished and it still need a little work on the model but I have no plans and would be willing to pay for the copys of his plans if he still has them
    Thanks
