A year later from his passing. Fair winds and beautiful sun rises, Mr. James. Your advice lives on, as does your memory, Well Done, Sir. I miss you.

Every time I see a briganteen, I think of Jimmy James. 2 years gone, now, and still missed. He was always so helpful, his spirit lives on among all who help fellow modelers, I think.

I saved the sketches he posted in a folder that amounts to a modeling notebook, I often catch myself looking at them instead of what I'm looking for at the moment.
I wish he was posting more sketches.

Sadly all the photo's on this thread have gone.  Maybe deleted from the "Postimage" hosting library, renamed, or otherwise broken link connections.    {:-{

Ned.......Jimmy's posted images all open manually....'click the text say open...not the box', then say OPEN

Here is an image from his posting # No 1 from August 2008 :-))

When viewing ..we should hold high a glass of beer/whiskey for a great mate now gone

RGY.....did you know Captain Jimmy back in those days?
