    I made another one of these shipwrecked models. This one I made for Jon Addison’s Sn3 Silverton Central layout. As the first one this was an HO scale Artitec model also. But since his layout is “S” scale I had to make a new pilot house which modified the whole boat.

    It started out as a 50.107 “Waterline Hull” as before then I added the frames below the waterline and planked them so I could bust holes in it. once again I didn’t have any spare props laying around.

    Note: the decals were just added today and I did adjust the tilted one.

      Another fine job sir! :up:

      Is the pilot house the only thing you "upscaled"?

        Beautiful job again on this model Frank. The below waterline planking looks natural on this boat, and a job well done on distressing. You have a talent for boating construction and kitbashing. [:-captain]

        Non of us would of known about the tilted lettering if you didn't tell us.

        Help me understand 50:107????

        I know a vessel's waterline length (abbreviated to LWL) is the length of a ship or boat at the level where it sits in the water known as (the waterline), but what is 50:107 signify?

                    Being a fishing boat, and needing to bait the fishing hooks, I'd say he is a master-baiter! [:I]

                      Howdy Frank. Nice job on another wreck.

                      The local boat builders must be happy, getting so much potential work.

                      Happy New Year to you.

                        Frank, another terrific model! Good thing your boats weren't wrecked in the Bermuda Triangle or they would've mysteriously vanished instead of

                        washing ashore and we never would've had a chance to see them.

                            My wife wants you'all to know she contributed the tulle for the nets.

                            Carl, yes the pilot was the only thing I up scaled. I scratched the hold and covers and the rigging. The model comes with flimsy plastic that I replace with brass rod or tube. After looking at the freeboard and seeing it so low I added the railings.

                            Louis thanks and the 50.107 is the model number of the kit. If you look it up now it shows a full hull design. It now scales 54' instead of 63' in HO.

                            Pete, thanks my friend.

                            David, Larry, Jerry many thanks.

                            Greg, gotta’ watch those hurricanes. Sometimes they'll go "wide left".

                            Louis, when I started out rigging baits on sport-fishing boats I was an apprentice, then journeyman and finally a master-baiter. As we used to say.

                            Rob, it’s up to the salvage companies now.

                            Bill, true story. Fishing out of Ft. Lauderdale, FL, we had a group of college students come by one spring break and ask if we went into the Bermuda Triangle. After hearing we did they didn’t want to go out.

                            Mike thanks. Are you coming down this year?

                              Frank, you've done it again.

                              Well done. :up:
