Dave, they are cut into the material. But upon a casual glance the eye and brain makes them look reasonable. Now a wash with a dark wash and they should pop more. The laser isn't a cheap thing to run, when it breaks down you want to break down and cry at the $$.

Thanks Carl, 1/35 is interesting because itís between 1/87 and 1/20, large enough to work with and not too big. Forgetaboutit in 1/6.

Greg, thanks.

Ok Jerry, I should have some more tug boat adventures this weekend.

Those parts assembled into a really nice piece. It is amazing how you can envision the finished product as you sit at the computer with your CAD program. Looking forward to seeing it tomorrow.

Good boom! The thinner parts do look a lot better. That's a lot of rivets, but adding them looks good.

Tim, thanks and I did see you today. Thanks for the help with planning the ties.

Bill, thanks even though they are reverse rivets they give the idea they are there.

Frank, John Nehrich showed me several pieces of rolling stock on the NEB&W that he or other club members had kitbashed or scratch built and the rivets on the cars had been embossed with a needle. At any normal viewing distance you can't tell they are "innies" instead of "outies", so yours will be fine.

Frank,

Your new, thinner-profile boom with inverse rivets looks very realistic. The original looked very toy-like to me.

That's a good trick with the rivets. Like Bill Gill I learned it from John Nehrich or a NEB&W club member, but indirectly through a magazine article.

Mike

Frank, the towing bitt should not be at the stern but closer to the center of the lateral plane. Remember that a boat steers from the stern and it makes a wider turn than the bow. With the drag of the tow you will never turn with it in the stern.
