Re: USS Essex and Royal Caroline, picked up by car
Hello Michael, I am just back in Wassenaar ... (On the way back) I had only 3 cylinders working in my Megane but no trouble with USS Essex or HMY Royal Caroline. Both are now in my living room and seem to get along well. ... I was very happy at meeting you in person and your most hospitable wife. You are both most welcome to stay with me here should you want to see our Dutch paintings. I have plenty of room for guests. With all my best wishes, Michael H., Wassenaar, Netherlands, July 2017


Re: USS Oneida, taken on a flight to USA
Michael-  ... Transport back to the US was straightforward.  Security in the Frankfurt airport wanted the case opened, but I think as much for curiosity as anything else.  The airline expressed no concerns, and I had no difficulty in boarding the aircraft.  The case fit easily in an overhead bin.  Upon arrival in the US, Customs asked for an examination, as the value of the model exceeds the free import allowance.  Your identification of the relevant regulation, allowing free duty on works of art, was most useful.  I carried a copy of the section of the regulations (calling the model a ‘sculpture’), which allowed me to make a specific suggestion to the customs agent, which was accepted.  As you can see from the photo in the letter, the model made it safe and sound to its display spot in my home.  I’ll go about getting a Plexiglas case made for it (I appreciate your preference for open-air display – but the environment in my home is diffuse with floating Labrador Retriever hair and the occasional tennis ball or squeak toy, so I think the better side of valor is a little protective armor).   Thank you again for the opportunity to purchase such a beautiful model, for your care in design and construction of a robust case, and for the hospitality of you and Heike. Mit freundlichen Grüßen,   -Peter

Re: HMS Bounty, shipped as air cargo

Hi Michael!
Funny you should mention about the case. We did bring (the model) into our home and set it near the place where we plan to display it permanently. From that moment on I started to reconsider my ideas about putting it in a case. It definitely looks much better without one, and your suggestion confirms my decision to do without.
I think the level of detail is amazing. ... This model could easily take a place alongside the antique models I saw when I schooled at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts about 60 years ago!

Re: Breton fishing boat - taken on a transatlantic flight in a purpose-built case that could be put in an overhead bin
Michael- Despite all my fears, transporting the model to the US worked beautifully.  ...  Opened the case - safe and sound! The only issue I've found is that the eyebolt holding the top of the middle shroud on the port side popped out - easily replaced and secured. Thanks again! Peter J., Alabama, USA, August 2016  
Dear Michael, I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful website of model ships. I have for the past three years intermittently accessed your website as a reference for the English Frigate I am currently building. The French Frigate model you display in high resolution photos is what I consider to be one of the finest examples of a Frigate rendered in model. I was somewhat dismayed to read of your scaling down and govt. constraints, but relieved that you intend to keep the website up and the photos of this fine model in place. I wish you the very best for your forthcoming retirement and endeavors. Dennis L., Bellingham, WA., USA, October 2013     
Re: Baltic Sea galeas Karl und Marie
