Here I am, reworking the rope coils. In the picture below, you can see how they came out initially (on the right). The two on the left have been reworked. I put too many coils on each one & the top loop was too long, causing the coil to hang too low & look unnatural. The reworked ones are not great, but they are better than the initial ones.

Congratulations Dale. She looks awesome. Give me two more years and I'll catch up with you.... :)

 

I noticed the pictures of the 747 and shuttle. I was aboard one of the two NASA 747's at Dryden during the 90's. I seen quite a few shuttle landings at Edwards on the lakebed as well as the runway.

Thanks Larry. I shot those shuttle pictures when it landed at LAX a couple of years ago. That was the first time I had ever seen it.

 

And thanks to everybody else for their kind words. It's been fun exchanging ideas & learning so much about ship building. I already miss not seeing her on my desk anymore after so much time.

GREAT job! I'm in the process of building an entertainment center where I'll have space to display several ships. I have a few store bought that will do for now and of course plan to replace them with models.

 

Interestingly, I have that same print of that ship in rough water too.
