    The crew are from Scenery Unlimited. Since this was not a naval vessel, I was able to re-purpose various "workers" as deck hands.

    These were a LOT of work, but enjoyable once the repetitive carving of a seven layer lift sandwich into a hull was completed. No rope barrels or implements in the boats - those were brought in for launching.

    A view of the hurricane house. The stars (interestingly not included in the kit) are from small military medal ribbons off e-bay. The printing (thanks to John Fleming) was done in Microsoft word printed on black fill and applied with decoupage glue with matte finish after. All of the small portholes were "glassed" with liquid obtained from Micro-Mark for that purpose.

    The captain's wife's cabin is visible with open door. The captain is enjoying a cup of coffee. The skylight as difficult as it required a number of tiny diameter steel rods to be installed through very small basswood strips. I couldn't install the number called for because the basswood would split with the holes that close together. If I were doing it again I'd get some boxwood strips for that. Looks OK tho - painting carefully by airbrush absolutely required to get smooth uniform paint on those small wires.

    The spare boats were not painted - used and painted as needed to replace a lost or damaged whale boat. Underneath is the vegetable bin and captain's wife's cabin, as well as some stored implements hanging from the roof.

    I added a couple of hand tools resting on the works, and a bucket to the right with board and knife for chopping the blubber strips into "bible leaves" to toss into the pots.

    I opted to build this brick by brick with pieces of wood each row separated by card strips and then "mortar" applied and washed off the brick faces. Unfortunately I sloped the sides in a bit too much and the pots wouldn't fit thru the top holes as intended, so I had to file them and mount to the undersurface, losing the nice lip appearance. Live and learn - I wasn't going to make that thing twice! It looks OK
