i think this barge will float quite well. the new tires look a lot better to me. The barge is looking quite nice.

It's only make-believe

Frank,

Tough crowd, but you dragged the COLREGS into it, so you're good.

More rust and some waterline in the water stuff, and....

Keep going!

Thanks Carl, I know you personally didn’t complain but I could hear the vibrations from the crowd. I could hear you going . . . hummmm.

Ted, maybe I could have some kind of work lights because navigation lights are inappropriate on a docked vessel.

Thanks Bob, I too think the tires look much better. Not that shinny black but a softer worn black/gray.

Pete, you have to take the good with the bad. In this case I was in the bad. I’m trying to not go rust ballistic. I didn’t want to go with as much rust like 278 on the previous page.

Frank, The redone tires look right for their purpose. Didn't mean to start a 'Firestone' over them!

Frank,

Agreed. No over-weathered salt-water rust bucket, just a barge that works for its keep and is a capital asset beset by water issues. And winter. We have both here on the North Coast....

As one of my Illinois Central modeling friends says, "IC no Gulf between us!"

Frank, I just read through the entire 19 pages of the thread. Phenomenal teamwork with you, Jim and the gang in the workshop! You've got to love all the scratchbuilding involved. That backdrop is a real beauty as well. So nice to see the synergetic relationship among all of the modelers! Keep up the great work!

All I have to say is:

Bill, no white walling here.

Pete, we are the “Gateway to the Great Lakes” so it might make it yooper that way some day.

Mike, that’s a marathon of reading. Yes we’re pretty lucky to have a small group of dedicated modelers.

Mike (TR), I must agree they do look better. I was try to get away with the lazy way out but I got caught.

Great job Frank!!

I guess everyone is done crying over the tires!!
Now they want lights that work!
Where the hell are all the people working on this rusting hulk????

I can see why the tires were new and no rust hell it isn't in any water to get aged??

Well anyway you said more to come!

Frank, you'll cross that Bridgestone when you come to it, and it'll be a GoodYear when you do. OK, I'm done..for now :)

Jerry, obviously they aren’t here where I am. Stay tuned.

Bill, we’re trying to make this little layout Continental in General. Toyo and yours have a good day.

Now Kevin is trying to Wrangler in.

I'm out.

What we need now is for someone to dump more gas on this Firestone of a topic.

Frank,

Add some minnows to those tires and bring on the 'noodlers'.   A little more rust and a little 'Eau du Poisson'.

Jim
