Thanks!

It seems that I am one of those "hit&run" builders that builds a boat (the functional part) then waits forever before finishing it, and WHEN finishing, it is short bursts of single details at a time...

As a fighter for the interests of seafaring people, I am a staunch opponent of unmanned vessels... So...





and in my 32 years at sea, I have learned the hard way, that sailing without coffee, is a resolute impossibility... (Heck, LIFE without coffee cannot be sustained IMHO)

And single-handed sailing is utterly boring, so:






The coffee mugs were made from loose items (caps of plastic vials, the handle a piece of black insulated 0,75mm2 electric wire).


Now I'm looking for something that can mimic a thermos... Because a coffeemaker is too hard to do (and not very realistic... :D)

Thanks! I continuously amaze myself because I am totally not a "details" freak normally... A sudden outburst of coffee mugs and crew... Thinking about how to simulate a thermos... Heck, it's like I'm not myself today.Thanks for the tip on the pics, I'll keep that in mind! (and thanks for inserting a few for me  :-)) )

Just as an experiment with martins's tip for the pics:

Glueing in the windows, I smudged a bit of glue on them as can be seen here:




cleaning them with car wax improved the front windows considerably:



Whaddayaknow... it WORKS...

Thanks Martin!

OK... now I am officially overdoing it...

As I said, I am normally NOT a guy that loses himself in tiny details...

So I guess I can officially say I got a bit carried away:



You can't sail without coffee, but engineers need tabacco as well... Hand-rolled... :p

:D last week I showed the video above to one of my colleague engineers at work, and his first and immediate remark was "that sound is fake, you edited a recording of a real engine over it"...

I had to show him a more close-up vid of the engine to convince him... :D :D :D

That's because so many are used to hearing the electrical buzz saws fitted to many of our toy boats and not 'Propper' engines. Wonder if a Mastiff would blow his auditory receptacles?

The guy was, like me, a marine engineer. Don't know if he had any affinity to modelling though...
