Hi All,

I needed a few O scale buoys for my On30 project (which is moving very slowly by the way) so this is the result. I also cut an HO scale one just to see if it would work, I am still waiting on some fiber optic filament for the HO version, the O scale one has a 3mm slow flashing LED, which looks good.

Oh, and I need more seagull poop on the built up one...

Hal

Hal very nice.

Is this going to be a O-Scale kit?

First-rate work. Here on the West Coast harbor seals like to use buoys for sunbathing. Seals are quite territorial and the USCG has a hard time getting them to move so they can service the buoys. BTW Kathy Milliat has a neat trick for adding flying sea gulls to her dioramas using whisker lengths of fiber-optic cable, its in her video on pier detailing. Might cut down on the present project poopoo paucity.

Hal, If I were looking for an awful pun I'd say you channeled your talents terrifically to make very realistic buoys. Excellent work!

You can often make it look like flying seagulls just by drilling and gluing a short piece of
brass rod into a wingtip and then gluing that rod into a wall or pier, or other seagulls (into
other wingtips, tails, or bodies). The bottom seagull has a wire "leg" hanging down with the
tip of the toe glued into a hole in the "water". A triangle of paper glued to this wire and
painted yellow looks like a webbed foot with the middle toe just touching the water.

Hey Hal, looking good. Can't wait to see the lit version.

Sgt Bob, I didn't think of the seagull to seagull version before, thanks.
