  • Coast Line RR Vol. 4

    Welcome!!

    Well, well, here I am in yet another unblemished volume... and as in the previous, begin with a boat...

    The Odin is now almost finished (still some mooring warps and springs to the wharf, small blocks and tackles for the davits, oars for the lifeboats and anchor chains to install...). I have installed the steam anchor winch, vents, lifeboats, davits, railings finished, a crew, hand lettering, steering wheel, five ladder/stairs etc...

      You'd never know this thing started out as a block of foam!

      Is that thread you used for all the rigging? It looks like tedious work.

        And opus 4 starts with a magnificent ship. The rendition of the rusty hull is absolutely amazing.

          Arthur, I used black and cream silk thread actually. Goes in quickly with superglue splices ;-)

          Frederic, the slight light brown drybrushing tonight really helped showing the hull plating and rivets.

                  Congrats on volume 4 Troels, just keep 'm coming :-)

                  As for the photo's, I find them more like instant-paintings than snapshots, so much to see in each and every one !

                  Wish I could cast pewter figures, I'd make this for the aft deck:




                  cheers, Leo.

                      Hmmm, there's more than meets the eye here in these photographs...

                      Did you notice the character in the long raincoat just outside Lucky's bar ?

                      Stranger to say the least and what's such a gent doeing on the pier in the first place:



                      He made me wonder until I saw the radio direction finders' antenna on the bridge of Odin:



                      This is a very state-of-the-art antenna, most would have looked like this ,

                      but the very new (and top-secret !) HUFF DUFF system uses an O.

                      And what about the sudden move of the little (but very fast...) lobsterboat I ask you ???



                      No, there's more going on here than meets the eye I tell you, perhaps a case for Hercule Poirot .......................




                      cheers, Leo.

                        Leo,

                        I asked the same question in Vol. 3 about the 'Sam Spade' looking character. He looked suspicious to me, too.

                        Maybe it is the new antenna he's after. Something is definately brewing. You can feel it in the air.

                        Hmmmmmmm.

                          Love your fantasies!! The raincoat guy is actually a slightly pathetic fellow, who thinks he can impress the "ladies" at Lucky's by looking tough, growing a stubble and smoking cigars... he lives with his mother and sells stamps for a living...

                            Wow! I really believe that if I could touch the ship and rap the hull the sound of metal would ring back. You may have inspired me (once again) to someday build another ship (although my harbor is a bit smaller ........can you say module?) Scott

                              I'm looking forward to the next 100 pages and that boat is a cracker of a way to start off! I can smell the oil, rust and sea air whilst sat in my office!
