Hello to all!

This is a fantastic web site! It sure is good
to read about something without having to put
up with all of that garbage you see on other
non-Titanic-related sites. Here's a brief bio
for you to peruse.........My interest in the
Titanic started back in 1961 when, as A 7 year
old kid, I saw "Titanic" with Clifton Webb. I
became "hooked" from that point on. It's too
bad they didn't have vcr's in the sixties. Since
then, I've never missed an opportunity to view
on T.V. or read about anything fresh concerning
this subject. For 10 years, I was a member of the
Titanic Historical Society which really provided
a lot of info you can't get anywhere else. Last
year, I visited the Titanic exhibit shown in
Cinncinati, Ohio. Very impressive! My 1/350
scale Titanic model required 6 months to build
mainly because I put tubular shelf lighting in
the hull to give a dramatic effect in a dark room.
I know a 95 year old man who still recalls his
mother reading the story of the disaster to him
in the local paper the day after it made the
headlines. He was 5 years old at the time. So.....
that's about it. Thanks to all of you for your
patience in answering my questions and in reading
this..........Have a good day!......Anchors Away!

Thank you, Brandon and Jason for your warm welcome.

This has got to be THE BEST web site anywhere! I hope to obtain a scanner for my computer very soon. When I get one, I will download photos of my model for you to see. I'd appreciate any and all comments regarding my lighting and construction work. By the way Jason, where were you when that photo in your profile was taken?

Thanks!
Richard

Hi Richard,

You're very welcome. I was at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax, and that photograph of the grand staircase is displayed on their wall. I was in Halifax attending the Titanic Historical Society's convention which was a lot of fun.

I look forward to seeing pictures of your model.

Best regards,

Jason

Hey friends;

Just a small but sad update to my intro. On 4/16/03 my Father-in-law passed away at age 96. He's the man mentioned in my intro whose mother read him the Titanic's story in the local paper as a 5 year old boy. Even as recently as 2 months ago, he could STILL recall it! He will be missed. [ I wish I could re-do my intro completely since it's so lousy! I was new to computer web sites then and not familiar with the do's and dont's of posting, Got me some heavy flak from 1 moderator as well! ] But anyway, the rest of the info is the same.

Thanks and have a good day,
Richard
