Aye, Master Shinnie, ye'va fair wind blowin' thar and a fair hand at craftin' that clever weathervane for certain.

Might ye make your craft a gaf rigged vessel by changing the paper mains'l to a bit bigger profile, therby satisfying Barnacle Bob who has your best interest in his black heart, matey? or will I be walkin' the plank for such forwardness?

Thanks for the kind posts everyone!

Arrrrgh! Alright you gaf rigged lovers! I changed the sail on me controversial non-complying weathervane.
I haven't painted the patina on yet til I get approval from the weathervane admiralty.
Once I'm given the thumbs up, I'll paint her up to match the other sails.





It's always great to get good positive feedback from you guys! It really helps us all do a better job when modeling.

One another front, I've built my laser cut rooftop sign that Joe Rutter at "Full Steam Ahead" helped me to design.
I plan on adding more support bracing between the 2 signs, and lighting them with LED's mounted on the roof shining up from below.
once I finish the construction of this building.









That's it for now.
Thanks for having a look!

Really nice looking building Greg. The color compliments the brick first floor. Great addition to the pier.

The sails didn't bother me on the weather vane or was it whether vain?

Haruuumpf,

I have been voted out by current members so I am wearing TWO eye patches and cannot view your
lovely photos. I will assume it is now seaworthy.

Barnacle Bob

PS, I did peek, just a little. I like that a lot better but I would feel much much better if the
whole hull was moved aft so that the pivot point was closer to the bow.

Sorry, I shouldn't have peeked.

Thanks again for the nice comments!

Bob, I thought I had fixed the weathervane with Bill's suggestion about changing the sail, but apparently not.
So my friend I carefully pried the little ship from it supporting pole, drilled a new hole closer to the bow and glued it back on again, this time in a different direction(So it's not a weather pain anymore).
I then trimmed Bill's new sail a little smaller, and repainted it, so now we can finally put this little weathervane to rest!





This kit includes a walk up roof access building and covered stairway, which I thought looked kinda big, so I just made up a little hatch instead, just behind the tower.
Besides with the large double sided sign it's getting rather busy up there.
I also added a few more roof details and the smoke stack to the boiler room roof.









I still have the exterior fire escape to install, and the loading dock and the roof above that.
And then finally the lighting for this building.
So until next time, thanks for looking!

Greg Shinnie

Avast me hardy, I hated to be a pain in the stern but it was shivering my timbers.

Much better, my friend. I know you want to be accurate and I figured it would be better for
me, an old friend, to suggent a change instead of some pirate later on blasting away at you
with nasty words.

Besides, the whole structure is so wonderful it deserved a proper weather vane.

Cheers

Barnacle Bob (dogone that Bill Gill, I like that alias)

You know Greg, I must admit, The weather vane looks like it will now detect the direction of the wind'..Cpt Bob was correct'..However, that is a rather tall smoke stack. I think it would call for some tie downs. It does look quite secure. But I wonder how it will hold up in heavy gales...I would hate to see it blow down on that `beautiful sign, or worse, hitting the weather vane'.....

Greg just catching up. The new building looks great. I like the colors and the brick walls really add to the over all feel of the building as do the sign and weathervane. Keep up the great modeling.
