Hi Lou;
I have studied your description on a characteristics of Flower class corvettes against the waves deeply, partly referring to
my English Japanese dictionary and could have understood very much that the movement of my Snowberry is not abnormal
at higher speed on the rougher water.
From now on,I will try not to care so much about the tiny bounce of bow that have made me offensive... >:-o {:-{ >>:-( {-)
Thanks for your courteous explanation.! :-))

Hi warspite;


Thank you for your kind comment.
Yes,1/72 against 1/1. This may be possibly one aspect or cause to make the scale model ship difficult to get it to simulate the real ship, of which I have always thought on how or what I should do to simulate a scale-like sailing on the water.!! :D O0 {-)

Sorry you had to go to a dictionary Kiyo. I tried to use as simple an explanation as I knew how. Possibly warspite did better as he said almost the same thing with far fewer words!

Hi Lou;
Please do not worry about the dictionary.
I just consulted my dictionary for only some technical terms which I normally would not happen to see.
I used to learn English,especially in the university days intensively,though writing ability of English I think may be so poor.
I always wonder if my own English in posting here would be understood correctly for those who are English speaking people. {-) :embarrassed: {:-{ Since I have never used translating function of my PC so far.....which is more humble to precisely translate what I do intend to say. >>:-( >:-o %% {-) O0

Hi Kiyo
If I may say, your command of the English language is exceptionaly good, and your writing is quite understandable.
I have come across English speaking people, who's written English is barely comprehensible.
You are doing very well Sir.
Kind regards
Garry

I agree with Garry, there is nothing wrong with your command and use of English. I also agree that your use of English is better than some people who use it as their only language.


If you were to try and get me to speak more than the one or two words in Japanese that I have managed to pick up over the last 72 years then you would have a REAL laugh! Like almost all Americans I am completely illiterate in ANY other language. Now if you talked to my daughter I am almost certain she would do better but she has been living in Japan for almost fifteen years now! Her son, is I am almost certain, fluent in both English and Japanese. :-))

Hi Garry;
I'm so much delighted at your complimentary comment on my writing English ability which I think is and sounds most honorable for me, and also may feel much happier to have that level of praise than even to have the same level praise on my model ships.!! {-) {-) :embarrassed: :embarrassed: :D :-)) :-))  Oh,excuse me,!!
Anyhow I do greatly appreciate your kind comment on my English this time.!! :-)) :-)) :-))
Well then, I have to study English much harder from now on rather than to make a model ship.!! {-) {-) O0 :embarrassed:

Hi Lou;


You and all English speaking people are very happy since the language has actually been an international language for many
years in the world currently unlike Japanese.... :-)) :-)) :-))
There is actually no need for you to study foreign languages at all, wherever you go English could be seen easily or flooded by which you will have a great advantage of whatever you do in foreign countries.

Take Japan for instance,English has been treated actually "as the same as" Japanese everywhere across the country for many years up to today.!!! {-)

Just to add a bit more to the flags, although the three you showed on their own have a meaning hoisted as in the image at first they mean nothing, but groups of letters can be put together to make a pharse, this would be sent to all ships involved in the operation or exercise, for example, flags H W S were hoised, that could be, exercise over time for Sakki/gin/rum.  Hope that makes it clearer still.

yep could be your friends abbreviation for an 'IN JOKE' between him and his other friends, like LOL is 'laugh out loud' in text speak on a mobile / cell phone, so CJDNHQ could be that he was saying some phrase that makes fun of others who cannot build to his standard or more than likely a set of letters that identifies his models like we put a short name to our forum name like I am warspite, i could have that in 6 flags on my vessel.

That's a good idea warspite - mine would be on 2 separate hoists.
Note : the bottom flag on stbd side of Kiyo's model is G (NHG)

Like Kiyo - I dont know my flags off by heart, took it from an earlier post that it was a Q, but yes you could id your own boats with the set of flags that is only on your boats.

Good seeing you out having a good time with your corvette Kiyo.


Weather here thinks it is still winter. Cold and wet! :o  Should be interesting, our annual regatta is in a few weeks.

Hi Lou:
A great thanks for always warm comments on my postings. :-)) :-))
I feel actually to have entered into the real MID-summer already with the air temperature of 33 degrees C(91.4 degrees F)
here in Tokyo though it's still May. We used to feel early summer in this period... {:-{
We normally will get into rainy season from early June through late July,during which there would be less chances to go for RC boating. Instead, after that period we will have mid-summer until early September for about two months when will be around
86 degrees F through 98 degrees F and everything becomes tooo hot.!!!!! That's why I dare not go for boating in this period though it's summer..... :(( :((


If possible,I would like you to get your boating scenes right on this forum.I am so much interested in the boating scenes in foreign countries.!! O0 :-))

We had a night float. I will send the pictures to you personally. Even though I am signed in and have saved the pictures this site is still demanding that I sign in again with some account and whatever I do it rejects it. >>:-(

Hi Martin;


A great thanks for your notice of Mayhem's photo of the month in which my Snowberry has been moored under the blue sky. %% :embarrassed: :-))
It's really interesting to enjoy RC boating on the water under the nice weather,though our country has already entered into so called rainy season typical to Japan to continue normally for 1.5 months. {:-{ <:(

Hi Chris;


Thank you so much for your comment.!! :-))
After the rainy season in Japan,I am intending to get my 1/96 HMS Fencer into regular service on the water once a month,if possible. O0 :D Currently she has been calmly sleeping on the bed for more than 1.5 years.
I have to get her awaken within this month from deep and long sleeping to check her conditions and go for regular sailings. :-)) {-)

Hi Dave;


Thank you for your comment.
As you know,the warship model is generally hard to wrap over it due to its delicacy.... {:-{
So I have been just laying the warship model on the bed covered with a curtain as in the pics ,except cabin cruisers
which have been covered with clothes. :-))
