Grand Banks dory by Cap'n'Bob - small - 1:32 - Finished

I’m sure most of us have had that feeling, the build is complete but it just doesn’t feel right.  Well that’s what happened to me with the dory.  I decided I wasn’t finished with the dory build.  I had placed fishing items in the dory but it just didn’t feel complete.  I tried to start the little yawl, which is my next build, but I kept coming back to the dory.

 

Finally I decided to make it into a diorama.  To place the dory in the ocean, at home, as it were, where it spent most of its time.  Many fishermen used trawl lines but this fellow is fishing with a hand line.  I just seemed right.

 

I got a lot of help from several of you here at MSW.  But I especially want to thank Dan for taking me through it step by step.

 

        Dan, this one’s for you.

That is a nice looking dory Bob, great colors and detail.  I have the same plans and will be building one once I finish the Triton cross section. There are a few tips I will use when I do mine - the buckets look easy the way you have made them.
