Frank,

This looks like one of my worst models on one of my worst modeling days. I had to pinch myself to see if I was awake! You have opened a new chapter worthy of many ideas.

Rich, you do it good.

Bob, thanks a lot.


After fitting, gluing, painting and weathering them I set the masts in place and started rigging. I left one boom off to the side to give it a more disheveled appearance. I used chopped up tulle for the nets. I tied on a couple of dock lines that I would drape around also. The droop in the line was accomplished with 50-50 white glue/water soaked into the thread. When dry it holds its shape. As you can see with all the handling some of it has bent the wrong way. After its set in place Iíll re-wet the lines for the final position.

The little cradle was handy to keep it from rolling around.













After building the bump-out beach piece I decided I didnít like it and Iíll fit the wreck onto a built up section of beach. Iím going to have to do some beach replenishment and add sand to give me more beach. This is about the only location I can put it. Over by the light house thereís more beach but it jams the light house.

The captain has been rowing across the inlet for several years now. Heís got to be rowing against the tide.

Unbelievable work.

Frank,

I agree with the rest of the guys here, but the Forums ate my last attempt, so I'm gonna have to try again. Well done indeed....

Frank, that looks excellent!
With that kind of hull damage, it's a wonder that she even made it ashore.
