I like the red lead treatment on the hull and the streaks from the hawsepipe.

Nice weathering Greg. Looks like it has been a while since her last refit

Thanks very much! Bob,Chuck,Marty & Chris!
For taking the time to stop in, and post some kind words about this build.

Hi everyone,at this point I'm not going to miss the chance to make a cargo hold, like Cliff made for his GULF BREEZE.
I don't plan on gluing down the cargo hatches,so they will be easily removed when needed.But I still needed some sort of container/cargo hold below decks.
I had some 1/8" inch styrene kicking around so I made up these simple styrene trays.(We all have to start somewhere,right Bob!)







They were made to size to fit under my decks and under the cargo hatches.




So when viewed from the topside, this is what you would see.





I painted them with red primer before gluing them to the bottom of the decks.
This is how they looked after I glued them into place.





So to my friend Bob Santos, the "Master of styrene", this ship might have a resin hull & skin, but it now has a heart of styrene.

To be continued.

Greg

The Santos is rapidly becoming a beautiful piece of work Greg.
With your hands in the photos is quite apparent that this is
a huge model. Can't imagine the size of the pier you'll eventually
tie her up to.

BTW-I sent you a PM

Thanks very much John!
When your doing a tribute build to a master modeler like "Bob Santos"(sgtbob) you'd better be on your best modeling behavior.
And I don't have a PM from you, try again.

Greg, I used to paint ships for a living, and I have to say that you are doing a great job. I really like the weathering on the hull sides, it is very realistic, and not overdone. I have the Sylvan kit "The Langell Boys" that I hope to build in the future. I'm looking forward to seeing how you will light this. Here's a pic of one of the ships that I helped paint. I did some of the lettering and hull markings on the Tacoma. Those were all done by hand.

It's really starting to look like a ship now Greg.

Greg,
Great work so far, like your hold boxes idea.
After looking at the painting I see where you are going and like it. The white paint would have made it look too yachty?

You going to arm her into a night raider?

Thanks Phillip!
When you ask am I going to arm her into a night raider?
I'm not certain what you mean by this,I am adding lighting to ship,if that's what you mean.

I was refering to the German raiders. Where they had armed some freighters to lure unsuspecting ships into range. Just being facetious.
