Another great commission Warren!

Given how many ships you've completed lately, I can understand there's no great need to start another yet.

Another house move? Goodness-you're not planning on moving everytime you need a break from the bench are you?

WOW - Warren, missed your commissioning entirely last Friday - great work, and light speed build!!

Touch ups required or not, your Alabama looks excellent, another great build!
(And just amazing, the combustion technique you invented for the boilers - spotless clean funnel - sorry, could not resist, after you commented on it yourself...)

Great work!!

Russ, don't you think Warren is moving every time he runs out of display room for his models??

Take your time, Warren, and whenever the bench is calling you again, I will follow your build log!

Cheers,

Thanks Jan.

A more optimistic theory: Warren does not move houses in order to avoid the bench, instead the new houses allow him to return to the bench with renewed motivation and zeal as he has more space to fill. The issue is that he builds capital ships in the time it takes most of us to read the instructions of our ships.

This results in high house moving frequency.

Warren, may I suggest a house for your ships, it will help avoid the next move.

By the way, The Alabama came out great. I like the idea of leaving some brass as a reminder.

Thanks Bryan.

Your theory is far more accurate. But this time I am making sure I have more than enough room for my fleet. I had to leave my first fleet in a museum in Qld so I am looking forward to building mine up here. Maybe I will go and see the SA Maritime museum and see if they want some extra exhibits..

Cheers
Warren

PS Not sure what to build yet.

maybe buy two houses side by side Warren? One for you and Mrs Inman, and the other for your fleet
