That's a great looking boat - what with all the correct coloured stays and lines and all! Can't wait to see more.
Cheers,
Dave

Dave ordered 4 woven rope fenders from Thachweave Products. They are about an inch long and 3/8Ē in diameter. Unbelievable!


Aww... here I had an image of you with a tiny crotchet needle hookin away. LOL

Well Jerry youíre down right pleasing to the eye to.

David C, it wonít be long and Iíll call it done. Somewhere in RRL I saw a post about, black for standing rigging and brown for running rigging, was that you?

Thanks Pete, and thanks for the PMs.

Greg, please spar me.

David D, I donít hook for anybody. Actually Daveís wife wove the rope fenders for his 1/6 scale Higgins boat.

Frank,

Did you hand tie those knots for the fenders? Another great model from your bench.

Ah yes thatís where I saw the black/brown. Thanks Mike.

Carl if you think 1/35 brings out the details you have to try 1/20. The detail parts weigh more than an HO building.

Jim, no Dave R. ordered them from Thachweave Products. He has all kinds of nautical gear.

Thanks again Mike.

Frank,
Holy Cow! The tug looks awesome. So realistic.

You hit it perfect on the lighting. You did a damn fine job!

Hell, even my friend Wilson likes it. Thanx Thom...

Thom, I think Wilson likes everything. Thanks for the comps.

Dave, I donít know what it is about tugs but Iíve always been interested in them too. It must go back to my youth when I had the Golden Book ďLittle TootĒ.

Thanks Bob.
