Half Model Project

An open letter from the Commodore

Dear Fellow Members:

We have had a strong response to the Half Model Project.

I invite members to download the criteria and deed of gift documents.

Donors are responsible for contracting with their model makers and making all arrangements. You may use a model maker of your choice. I recommend that you discuss the project with your model builder, view previous models made by that maker, and review the criteria with the model maker to assure that the model is in compliance and will not be rejected by the WHYC.

WHYC Members have advised that they have had good experience with the following local model makers:

Andrew Burton
Trident Studio
andrew@tridentstudio.com
www.tridentstudio.com
61 West Narragansett Ave.
Newport, RI 02840
401-846-9505
401-965-5260
Fax 401-846-9612

Dan Benfield
Atlantic Merchants LLC
atlanticdan@aol.com
860-460-2979
PO Box 721
Stonington, CT 06378

It is my understanding that Andy and Dan may be willing to offer special pricing on WH-15 half models.

Of course, you are free to contract with any model maker in any location.

We hope to hang the models during May of 2015.

If you are interested, I suggest you begin the ordering process as soon as possible.

If you decide to proceed, please send me a very brief e-mail (choulihan@putneylaw.com) so we can plan spacing.

Best wishes for the holidays.

Sincerely yours,

Christopher M. Houlihan
