Well, in addition to the "fun" that is work...I'm watching the Olympics and this! - I'm still going back to look at how you built the hull, cut flush on all corners to make it appear to be one big submerged vessel! Somehow you did it...I've had a hard time making a HMMWV sit completely level on all four tires! Lol

Keep up the good work -
Cheers
Nick

Must’ve used a pocket laser beam...or maybe had some basic brain surgery training, no way anyone can just cut like that surely?! (Hmm had to read that anchor caption twice!). Excellent work Maarten, nice to see some balsa deployed too. Also watching the Olympics – thinking of taking up Seniors Snowboarding - awesome insanity, I can think of far worse ways of checking out when the time comes!

Tim and Cheyenne,



No surgery or sorcery, just a hobby knife , metal ruler and some home made plastic glue.

Hi Maarten , two questions , what is the winch [ crane ] on the bow used for and [ because I don't know ] is there a winch or crank that raises or lowers the mast and if not how do they raise and lower the masts on barges ?

Hi Cheyenne,
The crane is used to hang a large anchor used for different river /sea floor types rock,sand,mud.......

Different ship but you get the idea

How he mast is lowered at this moment i don't really know (i have a idea) haven't found any good reference pics,but i will find out

Inspiring work. This is a level of modelling so far beyond my abilities I can only sit back and watch in awe.

Nice details ! The scratchbuilding is very good and I appreciate how you also added the different textures to the surfaces. Old wood,cast metal,etc.
