Some boats of mine - Show me yours!!
« on: April 08, 2006, 02:47:06 PM »

Hi guys and gals.
Here's a pic (collague) of some of my boats. The ship was a restore I did, but the others are my work.

I wouldn't mind a collection like that, but the good lady says "NO"
So, I just have to be happy with one.

Thanks for the kind comment Magpie. the second boat was infact far more straight forward in terms of complexity or is it that my building technique has improved?
I am on the other hand very pleased with the sails (so is the wife as I developed my ironing skills in the process).they took almost as long as the rest of model to make.
This is a model of my father (made from polymer clay) to keep the boat on a straight course.

TO MCR

I love it!
Model fugures are something I want to get into making. They really add to the character of a model. Doing one of your dad is a nice touvh too.
I've assembled a few from accurate armour for boats, but I like original work much more.
Here's one of the AA. panza crew on my sub.

I could not agree more Magpie I once flew model aircraft before I came to my senses and I always found it strange watching aircraft in the air without a pilot. This is the father in law.

Hi Taylor & Welcome,

I am in the process of building Atlantis and have used your site for help along the way.

Hope mine turns out something like that. Next the big V.

Hi Colin,
Great to hear that your building a Atlantis!  Would love to see some pictures.  Let me know if there's anything I can do to help!
I'm kinda drifting right now until I get things together for my next project.

Hi Taylor,

First thanks for the offer I may well take you up on it.

You will be pleased to know your site was directly responsible for my selecting Atlantis and as you are aware a guy called Steve also caught the bug. However he has had to build a larger workshop before really getting into the project.

Yours Colin H.

Yipee got it right.

The pici above and this one are of my Atlantis my third model so still much to learn. I decided to ignore Robbe advise to fit the keel weight early on after a reccomendation by Steve. This made life much easier and I have done as much work as possible before putting the weight in situ. This week I could go no further and so bit the bullet fitted the weight and pond tested her. Luverly Jubberly no leaks. Trouble now is it weighs a ton and is much harder to spin round in the workshop.

Very very nice!    :o   Can't tell for sure, is it navy or black for the top?    I think you're doing great with it!

Hi Taylor,

Thanks for the comments The hull above water line is in fact a very dark green much like British racing green. Just hope it helps her go a little faster.

It may not be the fastest boat out there but you'll be pushing a bigger wake then the rest of them, for sure!  ;D
