    Great work on the boat, love the lobster traps and buoys, they really add a lot of character to the boat.

        Rob have you ever tried the Lobster Traps and Boxes from Frenchman River Model Works?

        Yours did come out really nice!!

          Thanks, Carl, Dave, Louis, Ron, Mike & Jerry. I'm really happy with the results. And the bouys, just liven it up with a dash of colour.

          Jerry, I have seen the FRMW ones only in pictures. They certainly look nice and are more detailed. May have to order some, as I'll need more around the docks.

          Or I might even scratchbuild some from styrene. Will have to see.

            I've added all the final details. I re did the pot hauler, as the first one didn't look quite right.
            Also added a spot light and registration number board to the roof, a few more ropes, and of course, she finally got a name.
            This one named after our daughter Anna. She's visiting tonight, so I hope she likes it.

                    That is one fine looking lobster boat. Miss Anna should be proud. And, along with everything else, I love that color scheme Rob. Click image for larger version

                      Thanks Carl, Mike, Michael and Louis. I've really enjoyed doing this boat, and appreciate you all following along, and commenting.

                      Here's some final shots, with some crew on board.

                      And a comparison to the other two boats I did. All started with the same basic kit. But lots a scratchbuilding and imagination to make them very different.

                              The boats are awesome but you are missing the most important details of all. When are you going to get off your butt and make all the lobsters???
