I would like to purchase the tools identical the ones Bobby Waldron uses in his masterful build of DeAgostini's HMS Victory.  I live in the USA and finding tools, even online, like the ones he uses is proving more difficult than I imagined.  For instance, finding clamps, sanding sticks, glue, and flow improvers is a real adventure.  

Could anyone recommend suppliers who provide me the tools and items shown in Mr. Waldron's enchanting videos of his HMS Victory video?

This would be a build for the ages.  All that's needed are the tools.

Kind Regards,

You can get the full range of Flory models products here.  Sanding sticks, pigments and washes.  Great stuff, I use it all the time.

Wow! Many thanks for this info. It will be a real help in assembling the tools for building Bobby's majestic model of the HMS Victory. I have wondered about the sanding sticks and paint he uses in his Victory videos.

I have also tried to find a source for the clothes pegs he uses in his Victory videos. In my internet searches, I have come across Lakeland clothes pegs in the U.K., but they don't seem to have the flat clamping area of the ones he uses. I have looked for sources here in the U.S. and have yet to come up with any.

If you have a minute or two, could you recommend any sources for clothes pegs like the ones he uses?

Many Kind Regards,

I just ordered some if you are talking about the padded clothes pins--pegs. Let me find a link. I googled "Soft cushioned clothespins"

Hi, Ted.  After reading your message, I did google soft-cushioned clothespins and came up with those shown at the URL listed below.  They are 8 cm. (3.14 in.) long and 4 cm. (1.57 in.) high when in the closed position.  They still don't look exactly like Bobby's, but they are the closest I've found.  I'm still looking, though.  There must be a site out there that sells the pegs he uses.  Let me know if you find it.

Kind Regards,

Stephen Walters

BINGO!  These look most excellent and look exactly like the ones Bobby uses on the Victory.   We have a Dollar General store close by.  I'll definitely drift over and see what they have.  They may carry the same merchandise that your One Dollar store does.  If they don't have them, I'll try to order them online from your One Dollar store, if they have an internet presence.

Wish I'd known a long time ago about this site and the kind folks who post on it.  Could have started this magnificent build earlier.

Many Kind Regards,

Stephen Walters

If you can't order them tell me and I will try to put my hand on them and send them to you. A gift to put under your Christmas Tree 😊😊😊.

Dollar General doesn't have them.  I checked on the Dollarama and Dollartree websites in Canada (According to Google, these are the two largest low-dollar retail stores in Canada.).  One site gave me a 3-page listing of shopping bags and the other site gave me a 1-page listing of wood clothes pins guaranteed to keep them on the clothes line, even in high wind, until they dried.  Not much help there.

Man, if you could send me some, I would be eternally grateful.  I would be most willing, even happy, to pay you for them and also to pay for shipping.  I have three wooden boat builds going on now and these wood clothes pins just aren't making the grade.

Or, if you're pressed for time, and who isn't these days, and if the store you buy them from has an internet presence, let me know and I'll order straight from them.

Many Kind Regards,

Stephen Walters

You gentlemen have found out what I did after searching for a very long time. Couldn’t find “exactly “ what Bob had. I had to settle for a substitute. On the front page of the Genessis website there is a button to contact the site—that goes directly to Bob. Shoot him a note and see if he has a source?

Hi, Guys.  Many thanks for your help and suggestions.  I'll email Bobby and see if he can lead us to the elusive clothes pegs.

Kind Regards,
