I'll submit this one out the stern of the fast cat ferry that used to cross Lake Ontario from Toronto, Canada, to Rochester, New York, USA.

Since we can submit more than one, I'll slow put in this Peterborough cedar strip runabout. I took this at the Gravenhurst antique and classic boat show. I've got one just like this to restore.

One more, just because. This is Idyllwood. It was built by Captain Randy Potts of Bracebridge, Ontario and is used as a tour charter vessle. Nice trip through some beautiful lake scenery in th classic Muskoka tradition.

How about "Detail" from a modellers point of view? (of varying scales!)

That's some beautiful examples of modeling Bunkerbarge. The weathering really brings it to life.
On the modeling side, how about these:.......

- each of the Dreadnought's boats are 2 - 3" inches long

Peter.

That's the one Peter, although a couple of club members have said that I didn't really do myself justice because you couldn't dertermine the size from the article and it appears to be quite a bit bigger than it is.

Here's a couple more giving you a better idea of how big it is.  The scale is actually 1/35th.

Sorry Martin.
Details are scale related. What might pass as detail at 1:96 is nowhere near the detail required at 1:12. Perhaps you should have another rethink?
Personally I would go for "Quality of Workmanship" no matter what the scale. I thing "g-George" would be a front runner on that one.
Regards. BY.

You're missing the point Bryan, it wasn't an offer of discussion.  Interpret it as you want but that's the heading.
Not missing the point at all. In common with most modellers I have a huge collection of little details of full size ships. The forum would be absolutely swamped if we all just posted details of "full size" things. I repeat: as this is a "model boat" forum then the details should be of model details. Your own models or somebody elses, makes no difference.
As far as your comment about the subject not being a point of discussion goes, I think that remark was out of character for you, and was verging towards the realm of censorship. Nuff said. BY.

I actually agree with Bryan this once. I think this should be models only and not 1:1 ships, because, lets be honest most of us can take half decent photos of real ships, models are a different matter.

If it's details of a boat post it- if it isn't don't- if, when Martin comes to judge, he decides that it is an inappropriate pic he won't put it as the winner will he!
