the black box in the center is the junction box for the lights.  a hole was drilled into each side to accept the thread.

the life preservers and radar / aerial mast was next to do........

5ae09d7499e39_4.JPG.67a58303a2d88b2ddf9bbaa939499a5c.JPG

the mast was sanded to shape,  with a leading edge and a trailing edge.   two antennas needed to be made now.

5ae09ecfd0fbe_9.JPG.bc7788e92a37b09cabbf0d76f3402b04.JPG

put a ball on top and made up the aft mast

it's odds and ends time folks.........time to give it that lived in look  ;)    we worked late last night on the model...didn't clean up after ourselves.   left our soda cans strewn about.

5ae0a0f3b759a_1.JPG.f5b21e9e80954e27bb32eb3988409d79.JPG

note the holes in the center of the tables......now what's that all about?!?!?!?!

5ae0a0fee2afa_2.JPG.869aa898fa0f444ec83e1e518fbed40a.JPG

I know that the last session.......we kinds forgot about the life preservers.......we'll get to them in a bit.

5ae0a10fd3508_3.JPG.e071e823087e8ca97ae37f22e3fef214.JPG

the antenna part of the forward mast was painted a darker gray,  as was the aft mast

5ae0a15d6b392_4.JPG.46d84b092790ca233e1fa8ca115b2e92.JPG

I saw these too in Hobby Lobby.......I thought this would be kinda interesting......a record player for the disco booth  :) 

5ae0a1b962c38_5.JPG.52923c5778b65d76371793abe37c8a96.JPG

HA....HA.....preservers got a haircut!  ......just a really good tip from Jim Ladd {John}

5ae0a1f7c3f00_6.JPG.4b7720878d244ef6de1ed0184a15d59b.JPG

more lights and radar....I'll be prepping them up

5ae0a27543a8a_7.JPG.afc9701d81f5247ccff0b0134f261b0b.JPG

I made up a couple of decals for the forward mast.   here again,  now that I look at it,  I should have made them red and green {like the nav lights},  not red and blue.   it's the little thing one thinks about after the fact ;) 

5ae0a2abd5c01_8.JPG.00f3c432f47482f8da2fcfdab6c18782.JPG

5ae0a3afe8b2f_9.JPG.98fadf97084f81807e0035c44f1ffcec.JPG

the light lenses were filled with the window maker

5ae0a3ca88dc2_10.JPG.37bd11c30ce1c7ca2e2694a74c6e3700.JPG

one of the light ended up on the forward mast

5ae0a46125eef_14.JPG.19ae5199680c088f09b1f68de9b3e69c.JPG

then the forward mast was rigged with communication wires

5ae0a46b239fd_15.JPG.2aa530c46ce5b48333c69b8cc83722c3.JPG

then it was rigged to the aft mast.......you might see small beads on it that I will use as insulators......

5ae0a4e535ce1_17.JPG.7edfab0c7a825a348b8aa3ff36dd5892.JPG

both sides were strung and the insulators were cemented in place

5ae0a5812f287_18.JPG.c317b8f6e3126a156a526b2998e06f1c.JPG

a stern light was added as well

5ae0a5b5e6f2b_19.JPG.5f1b3149640157d48a57c1be09dba13a.JPG

insulators were added for the forward wires too

5ae0a5d571b81_22.JPG.e38daf673fef24b0786a4f401dba77c8.JPG

I bought a package of these umbrellas........they were cemented in the open position.   Ms. Green seemed to like them....she had the nerve to have me paint the poles to match the umbrellas........she's bossy  :angry:

now the admiral knew that I was almost finished with the model.   throughout the build,  folks suggested ideas to me.........if I could fit it in,  I would.....but most of these ideas were already cast in stone,  thus some I couldn't do.   Andy gave me one though that I couldn't pass up.  he suggested that since the windows were large enough,  I should add windshield wipers on it.  I agreed,  and I started to assemble them.

5ae0aaa18f002_1.JPG.cf1c4d3a8583d1aaaca77a375cf0aa71.JPG

these are the wiper arms....at the end are those Billing's eye bolts.   I have found so many uses for them.  the admiral saw this and she accused me of prolonging the project.   so I don't put out another spoiler alert......I'd better show you this first.   the umbrellas are in place on the model.

5ae0ac4e8e7f9_6.JPG.6b22ed9e27329cdb29b64d51e7520db1.JPG

I tried one on the disco booth.........I didn't like how it looked.........so I changed it up a notch.   gotta have some room for the record player  ;)

5ae0acbd89584_5.JPG.49827033591f1d9cec54598c11dbbefe.JPG

anyway.......the holes for the wipers were drilled above the windshield.

5ae0acf83e8eb_2.JPG.d1858759c8267fb934af99d2fcca10d2.JPG

and the blades were a work in progress........just strips of brass with the rubber part painted flat black

5ae0acffc623f_3.JPG.bdaa53fff505cd808b005054245852c6.JPG

I made up some smaller M&M circles to decorate the booth....painted the booth green and the table top chocolate brown.

the wipers were assembled and are now on the model.........two logical positions.........

5ae0ae076ad6b_12.JPG.a369d166edaf5f3fa119f410970e2964.JPG

I chose the position on the top.....from right to left.   the booth is decorated now....dry fitted in place on the deck.

Ha  HA.......preservers got a haircut!   the plastic rope is all cut off and real rope will take it's place.   I started doing it bu using CA to glue it on.......now I just last the rope on and cement the tie-offs

Hi Popeye, great to see your M&M Fun Ship build log back online! It's quite an extravaganza of candy-coated-chocolatey creativity... :)

 

I love the separate (restroom?) doors for plain and peanut.

I had a bow light......can't remember if I ordered it,  or I didn't add it to one of my models.    I put it to good use right here  :)

well hello Clare :)    this was a very fun build.......well worth bringing back.   it's a novelty.......got the whimsical fantasy stuff,  but it has plenty of scratch building,  leaving one wide open to do whatever you want.   these fantasy projects are good to start with.......especially if one wants to break into scratch building.   one really can't goof up too bad.......and if you do......you don't feel so bad  ;)    buy a cheap boat kit...and have at it.   I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to learn.

    thank you very much for the kind comment :)    I found this to be a really good subject.

 

along the journey building this model,  I acquired some interesting pictures from folks,  and what I found on the net.   Sjors and Anja sent me this one,  I believe.

5980_100723966956_7072359_n.jpg.be6b456e0af8f219f8d248745af3a1fb.jpg

through the advertising,  the only colors to be shown were red,  yellow,  blue,  and green,  the only female in the group.

 

the orange fellow came out when the crispy M&M's came out.   only one is not shown......although way back in the early days,  the color was shown as a male gender.........in an odd twist of fate......or got caught in the 'Spaceball's' teleporter.......he became a she  ;)   {it's Ms. Brown}

      

the gaps here were pictures of the characters....but I just realized I can't post them like this.......they're copyrighted :(    these pictures were given to my wife by John {Jim Ladd}.   he and his wife were making a trip to the states and he asked me if we'd mind some company    I was floored........honored to have them come for a visit :)    he took pictures of the model....we talked shop.....Pam and Phyl entertained each other,  and we all had a great chat afterwards.  customs between our countries are very different.....they are two very fine folk!   this is a store in the Singapore airport

5ae0c73f7abf5_ChangiAirportSingapore.jpg.ef023f2dca28682fc445aa3929967f81.jpg

if we had a store like this around where we live,  I'd never see the admiral :D  :D

still working on the speakers.....the main boxes are assembled

5ae0c90de577a_1.JPG.e115f6ee4b3cc08be2fc94f6115e8bc3.JPG

looking for images on line....I found pictures of speakers.  I printed them out in three sizes

5ae0c97d59add_2.JPG.b1a765154393347918f94bfd2453bf72.JPG

the cabinets were painted chocolate brown

the life preservers with the real rope

5ae0c9b461a1d_4.JPG.b9d15ecf719f70c06fe5eb780edeeeab.JPG

I made up some decals....just basically says M&M.....they were put on the preservers.   one was placed in the center of the aft cabin

5ae0ca47a3e4d_6.JPG.3550ad3fd4c81a0b7bd28416a71bf882.JPG

picking out the right size speakers,  they were cut out and cemented into the recess of the speakers.

there are pictures of this model in the gallery.  I broke this model up into two files.......the model and the novelty.   the model doesn't have the figures on it......I took them for sentimental reasons.   I'm not much for having figures populating my models......actually,  the King of the Mississippi is going to be my first.....was.   I had fun building this model.......it was so easy to come up with the ideas......it was planned out before I started.   here is the model:

the admiral wanted to have the figures we gathered on the model.   this is the novelty.......to add them,  I had to remove the stands {which was real easy}

HI Denis

 

Absolutely magnificent!!!!!!   In fact, I love this ship so much, that every time that I'm down in the dumps, I'm going to think of your masterpiece, especially the creativity and imagination that you've poured into it.  That'll help put a smile back on my face.

 

Top job, Denis!

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

When I saw "The M&M Fun ship" in the 'Latest Topics with Update's section I just had to go have a look.  Now an hour and a half of valuable hobby time is gone, but the smile on my face is probably going to be fixed there all day!
You must have had so-o much fun conceiving and building this model!  And it's going to give such a lot of pleasure to anyone who has the good fortune to see it in the flesh - er, I mean to see it in the MILK CHOCOLATE (SUGAR, CHOCOLATE, SKIM MILK, COCOA BUTTER, LACTOSE, MILKFAT, SOY LECITHIN, SALT, ARTIFICIAL FLAVOR), SUGAR, CORNSTARCH, LESS THAN 1% - CORN SYRUP, DEXTRIN, COLORING (INCLUDES BLUE 1 LAKE, YELLOW 6, RED 40, YELLOW 5, BLUE 1, RED 40 LAKE, BLUE 2 LAKE, YELLOW 6 LAKE, BLUE 2), GUM ACACIA  !!

 

Lovely job!  Well done!

thank you very much everyone for all the kind comments :)    seeing all the interest..... back in the day,  I probably should have reposted the log.   I think that more folks would have stumbled onto it while thumbing through the archives.   it's interesting to see folks are beginning to research the lesser known ships and are trying to model them.  not that there is a lack of informational base to guide them or compare them to,   but because they feel that these subjects are note worthy,  and they want to bring them to light.   in some cases,  it's harder to do,  the research is a lot more intense.....but the information gathered will expand the medium in many ways.   this fantasy build was no different.........it was a balancing act between creating a functional subject {a could be},  and a whimsical fun build that I could let my hair down a little.   I was glad to get this one out,  while I am still able to think of stuff like this  ;) 

 

a short time after the model was finished,  I thought I'd send some pictures to M&M / Mars,  the company that makes the candy.   here is the reply that I got:

thank you Mark....the log isn't as colorful {referring to the comments and my narration} as the original one,  but given time,  more will follow.  I can't wait to start the 'other' lost log......I'll be turn'in that one up a notch ;) 

 

Hi Denis

 

Mmmm  Intriguing.  What's the "Other Lost Log"?

 

Cheers

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal.
