  2. When I mentioned this project here, I said I probably wasn't going to do a build log ('cause Dionysus knows I've got a few of those going already) but you know what? - I've had a change of heart and I'm gonna go for it. BECAUSE: a). It's fun and different. b). This time it's actual, paying work and my slacker genes are kept in check by a schedule and a bunch of eager kids, who will badger me endlessly unless I get off my bum and "let them do stuff with the boat". So don't you worry, dear reader - this one's not going to be an endless, hopeless slog through the salt marshes (at worst, your shoes will get a little muddy) so come along, why don't you? Also, if you have an idle gaggle of five-year-olds knocking about somewhere, this might be something worth trying out. Good fun. The model is heavily inspired by the wreck of the Bodekull (previously know as "Dalarövraket" - 'The Dalarö Wreck'). AHEM! Right. Onwards. There's a children's song, I think it's from one of the Pippi Longstocking movies, and the first two verses go like this: "Minns du en sjöman för länge, länge sen? Minns du hans namn var Kalle-Teodor? Aldrig så ser du den sjömannen igen han vilar i havet Kalle-Teodor. Men en stormnatt kan du höra nån som ropar 'hej-hå!' Ifrån havets djup det kommer och det låter så: 'Hej-Hå!' I storm på Biscaya gick skeppet i kvav skeppet han segla Kalle-Teodor Därför så vilar han nu i sin grav vaggad av sjögräs, Kalle-Teodor Men en stormnatt kan du höra nån som ropar 'hej-hå!' Ifrån havets djup det kommer och det låter så: Hej-Hå!'" Here's an English version from this video: "Can you remember a sailor from before Can you remember Captain Teodor You will never see this sailor again He's resting in the ocean, Captain Teodor. But on a stormy night it echoes - someone calling 'Hey-Ho!' from the ocean deep it cometh and it sounds like so: 'Hey-ho!' In a storm on the Biscay the ship hit a wave the ship he was sailing Captain Teodor so now he is resting below in his grave cradled by sea weed Captain Teodor. But on a stormy night it echoes - someone calling 'Hey-Ho!' from the ocean deep it cometh and it sounds like so: 'Hey-ho!'" This song is ever a favourite among kids (in my experience, at least). Loss at sea isn't something Swedish, urban kids of today typically have to deal with, but it has that ... vibe ... you know ... it's macabre enough to get the thoughts rolling. And it's mighty catchy too. Being quite unable to keep my perverse nautical interests out of anything, I ... um, "We" ... decided that Captain Teodor's ship would be a great theme for a creative project. So I picked up a toilet roll, scissors, a hot glue gun and off I went. Here's the general idea: That's Part one, then. Cheers Sam
  3. Hello With my first build log[1] on hold for a year, it's time to sail into new and uncharted waters (and then sink there). First of all I'd like to say thanks to all the people who popped in with a thumbs up when I presented[2] my idea What I'm giong to build is this: A lit diorama, in a box, of an ROV investigationg an old wooden wreck in the blackness of the deep sea. The inspiration for the project comes from two places. Firstly, from the abundance of remarkable wreck discoveries in the Baltic sea in recent years. And secondly from an "art" project I abandoned some years ago - diorama night lights. I thought it would be cool if you could lie and gaze at some scene, say, your favourite street corner, while you drift off into sleep. Now the night lights are back, but they're Wreck Lights now. Yes, Wreck Lights, That's what I'm going to build. The scale will be fairly small - it would be weird to have a night light the size of grandma's telly ... What I'm aiming for as far as the wreck itself is concerned is something like this: http://www.hydro-international.com/issues/articles/id1236-The_Ghost_Ship_Expedition.html It might be cool to do a fluyt. I really like fluyts, wrecked or not. Any tips, sharing of thoughts, reference material etc. is of course much appreciated. Lastly, I've done a silly illustration to show you what I have in mind (I won't build the kid ...)
