Having a hard time posting photos, need instruction as to how it works on this site, any help greatly appreciated.



Hiya Greg,

Welcome to the site, and I hope we can figure out how to get your photos posted!!

There is, somewhere in the forums (look under the forum on photography), a couple of lengthy explanations of how to get photos posted here on MSW. The gist of it is (and forgive me if I'm being too basic), is to find a place to host your photos, copy the link to the photo, paste that link into your post, and you're done!

Let us know where you're having difficulties, and all the famous minds here on the site will try to get things figured out for you!!

Tim

Hey Gregory, welcome to the sites. I'd really like to see your work. While I've never built a large scale sailing vessel, I've tried my hands at a couple small scale kits with limited success. But I have an interest in US naval vessels, especially pre-WWI so I'd really like to see your work.
Thanks
John

I love ships of the line but lack the skill or patience to build them properly. My dad helped me build a 1/96 USS Constitution when I was younger. He did all the rigging as he had the skill for it. I look forward to your work.

Hi Gregory,

Welcome to the community!

Ships of the line fascinate me. 1/72!? Please post photos! (Photo posting here is a bit cumbersome but I can show you how.)

Our ship site is Model Shipwrights. Lots of folks over there who you ought to enjoy. That URL is here: https://modelshipwrights.kitmaker.net

Please PM me if you have any questions.

I build American ships of the line. I finished the USS Pennsylvania 4 years ago, I am now working on the USS Columbus.
I work in 1/72 scale I have TONS of photos if anyone is interested. I have the bulkheads and keel of the USS United Stated cut out and ready to construct as well
