Man !!! This is such an incredible lifelike ship (representation). This would have been even more dramatic if it were in some type of Diorama scene. Very well done Popeye. I appreciate your presence on this Forum. You and others certainly lead the way to help me and others.

I know there are other fine craftsman on this forum and I appreciate everyone of you. I know I am breaking my own rules (being off topic) , but for those just starting out, this is truly a great place for such fine people that join together !!!

thanks Donnie......the idea for this vessel had been on my mind since I assembled the Boulogne Etaples hull frame. I had cloned three other hulls for the Holiday Harbor build. it was karma that one of the hulls ended up without a subject. as it turns out, I have another hull without a subject......if I go any further with it, it will lose the concept I have for it. it will be another fishing boat........I made another hull for the Christmas tree boat :D I know I have been spotty here of late..........I have so much to catch up on....especially the Holiday Harbor build {wait till you see the hull I made for the tree boat}. hopefully, I can find the time to visit more frequently.

I hope you are feeling better, and I hope you've found a build that will pique your interest.

Yep Popeye, I am doing better these days. Thanks for asking. Well as a matter of fact, I have chosen my next build. It will be the OcCre Montanes. It will be an end of year gift (most likely as a Christmas gift). The Admiral has it on her list !!!
