Greg, it would be a shame to have the other 2 gantry cranes sitting idle, I think you should build a sister ship to the RA Santos.

Hi Greg:

What a tremendous project: building, planning, history all in one.

Boy I sure hope it will fit through your basement door opening ... I can just see you with your saw now

Thanks Frank & Joe!

Frank, another ship from the Santos Line would be cool!
But that's not going to happen for awhile,too many other things to get done first!

Joe,yes this runs pretty close to the story about the guy who builds a boat in his basement.
And realizes he can't get it out when it's finished.
I have tested my passage already with my foam base,it had lots of clearance bringing down to the basement.I do think I will take the ships off the water when moving it around.
Perhaps even stow them under the rolling support structure when it transit.

Greg

Thanks Mike!

Hi everyone,I have not had a lot of time for modeling lately,busy time at work.
Nevertheless,I have started my next tribute build for our friend Frederic Testard.
Frederic, always has nice things to say about everyone's work here.
And is a master modeler himself,sharing his work & techniques here,for all of us to enjoy.
He really excels, when it comes to making this forum a better place.
So I will be using a Downtown Deco kit "Gugisberg & Sons Machining, for the starting point for this tribute build.
I will build "Testard's Mathematical Instruments" makers of finely calibrated Mathematical instruments.





This structure will be set into the side of a hill,with the back of the structure having a wooden addition on top of this hill.
I have the main walls all glued together now,and will start painting them next.





And this is the back wall that will be mostly covered by the embankment behind it.
And that will get the wooden addition added to the back wall of it.





That's it for now.
I just wanted to let you know that work is still progressing slowly here on Magoun Pier.

Greg

Fabulous idea, Greg! Make sure to include a slide rule section somewhere!

Greg, I've been out of town, so I'm just catching up here. I'm very impressed with your pier. Not just the size, but the workmanship and finish. That roof is very impressive. I'm looking forward to watching you progress with Testard's Mathematical Instruments.

Greg,

Just a thought about the chimneys for this kit. Are you planning install them where they are shown on the picture. While it looks dramatic on the pictures their location makes no sense to me as chimneys are not normally located at the front of a building and put in front of windows and doors. It looks to me that the first chimney is going in front if a blocked off window on the second floor which indicated that there must be a forge or something on the second floor (not where I would put one). Looking at the size of the chimney there will need to quite the structure required to support it. The second chimney looks like it is going in front of the loading doors, which would make them quite useless with the boiler sitting in front of it.

Take it for what it worth, it is just my construction background talking (the building will look cool where ever you pot the chimneys.

Thanks Ralph,Ron,Pete,George & Bob for checking out what I'm working on & for your posts!

Ron,you & I are of the same mind,when it comes to those 2 chimneys.
They certainly add interest in the promotional photo's on the box.
I think I'm not going to use them at all,instead a larger stack off to one side of the factory perhaps.
Thanks for your thoughts about this Ron!

Greg

Greg, for us old guys maybe there should be a pencil and paper division.

Why is it kit builders overlook the obvious, those chimneys look great but are architecturally so incorrect. Wise choice Greg.

Greg, I feel honored by what you say and what you do. I'll watch you unfold this project with the strongest interest.
I have had some O scale squares laser cut for the school of my Amazonian village. It would not be too hard to reduce the scale and have some done for you if you're interested, as well maybe as a few compasses from the 'circling division' of the company.
