Maine Lobster Boat by popeye the sailor - dual build -finished

Recommended Posts

is anyone really sure?  ;)   the more I view the site,  and see all the wonderful thing other folks do on their builds,  even I sit back every once in a while,  and thing how a particular aspect would look on a build I've finished.  ;)    I'm afraid so.......it's finished.  ;)   I do tend to think though,  that this would be an even bigger problem for the scratch builder.   this was the final piece of the puzzle.....the subject is complete......and the line has been drawn.   I will follow the line,  to the end of the line,  which always leads to the next one.  ;):)

 

 

thanks Wayne and John........you never know what my next stroll through the doll house furnishings will stir!  :)

keep that thought alive Sjors.........I think those are words I can live by  ;)   "there is no build,  that at one time or another,  that an addition can't be made."  I thank you......Rear Admiral Sjors  :)

 

thanks Dave.......I think it unhealthy,  if you don't look back.  I find it a good way to see the progress you've made and the experience you've gained.    never be discouraged.......but encouraged  ;)

 

I'm feel a bit humble at this point Daniel.......thank you for the compliment :)  perhaps one day,  I will.   gee.........wouldn't it be cool to have a site poet?   I do recall though,  that such a thread has already been started................by now probably,  long since buried.   I do see and read events on the site though,  that does cause verses to come to mind.   due to the restrictions on socializing,  I hesitate to write them,  as they occur.   I suppress them and find other ways to reply.  I'll give it some thought.......thank you again......I really appreciate your thoughts....glad you like them  ;)

Hey Popeye, I think your ski's are too short mate and you need to redo them, that may prolong the build for a little while for you. :D  :D :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  :D  

Don't ya just hate it when that happens, :D  :D

 

She looks really great mate, very well done, be proud. :cheers:

 

Be Good & Stay Warm

gee Mobbsie.........Barbie was out of town.......what's a poor sailor to do ?????? :D :D :D :D

 

thanks Frank.......it was about time I got back to do this.   it's really a bother to put a build on a shelf like this,  knowing that something still needs to be done.  well.....now it's done.......I can walk away now,  and know that I don't have to think about it anymore.

 

thank you both for you kind words  ;)

Hi Popeye

 

Sorry that I fell a bit behind, to tied up in the Victory and the Schooner Annie M. Parker, and now I misted almost all of your great little lobster boat. Great job Popeye, just love all the detail that you managed to add to your boat. Well done, she sure is a beaut. The Admiral and I had lobsters tonight to celebrate Valentines Day dinner, boy they were some good.  Have a great day and,     Enjoy. 

 

Regards   Lawrence

thanks Nils.......I guess it's a good thing I did.   I was looking at the last page or two.......where the images should be are simply the photo numbers.  I clicked on one of them,  and it just sat there spinning it's wheels......never got to see the picture.   I sure hope that didn't happen to you.

 

this was a simple case of over embellishment.....I went too far and ruined the subject.  rather than trash it,  I made up the second hull.......and there you have it......a dual build.   this is the only build I've that's other than Billing's.    it was still fun  :)    thanks for the good word!

About the NRG

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. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
