  • What more can I say Tony. She's beautiful. I have followed you and

    learned many techniques since our hulls were first laid out late last

    year. With luck and another kick in the arse mine may also join the

    fleet shortly.

      I think they would look great together. I'm taking the boat to work tomorrow to show off a bit. They've been following along a little too. Just about everyone there knows the kinds of models I build and I often share my work, sending them email updates as well as talking about it. They are quite a supportive lot. I have one guy who like for me to put a quarter in the picture for him to show how big or small it is to his wife. So yes, even their wives follow along.

      Too bad your not coming to the show, it would be great to meet you.

      • I am exploring the possibility of attending the CSS2015 show on Saturday. My daughter has

        a weekend home in Lackawaxen, PA about an hours drive to Scranton. Will let you know as we

        get nearer the date.

          Never been to a CSS show, John. Thought about it a few times, it's just too far to drive, but I did drive to North Carolina once, in 2 days, so it is do-able. I'll be at the 34th narrow gauge convention myself.

          • Sorry Tony, thought you were referring to CSS. I will just be visiting with no models in hand.

            Good luck at the NG convention.

              I thought you were, I should have mentioned it, but didn't know there was any other show.

              • A few parting shots and a new project?

                I added a little water, it was too plain with bare wood.

                The next project is something I not only have wanted to do for about a year, but since my wife bought it for me, I thought it might be a good choice, you know, kind of keeping the peace so to speak. Besides, I asked her last night what she thought I ought to start next, and well, now you know the answer to that one







                And here it is......

                • Here's a teaser photo of the port side life boat and davits installed. More to come as I proceed.

                  Want to give a big THANK YOU to Tony Burgess for steering me toward a more detailed approach. His many tutorials caused me to rethink my modeling techniques and create a more colorful model.

                  • That's really good work John, well done. Thanks for the recognition. It is my hope that others come away with a better model as a result of my tutorials. Thank you for posting, and keep the updates coming.

                    • Coming along very slowly on this part. The lifeboat and davit assembly was the most challenging part of this build. Now that they are installed, I can go on with more detailing and start on the display. Will add more photos as I go along if there is any interest.

                        Looks real good, John. Yes, post the updates, I am sure there are plenty of us who would be interested. I think the lifeboats were the longest and most tedious part of my build too. But you have a sense of pride and accomplishment when it is finished.
