Well that's a matter of opinion. I find myself going up in scale!

The problem with looking through Russ's bikini clad beauties photo album is that his idea of which photos to include might not correspond to every one else's ..... !

Nick.It's photos like that that inspire, a lovely collection of rusting boats. That's gone into my modelling ideas file.   I'll also go along with Russ's bikini clad girl album for more inspiration!

This is one of the many photos that gave me ideas on how to proceed . I believe that it resides in Staten Island .

Les,

   Yet another fantastic model from your ever fertile mind . You are definitely giving Barney stiff competition for the title of "styrene King".

   Floating cranes and dredgers is a subject I have had an interest for a number of years . I have even started a model of my own . This photo was taken in 2016 . Obviously not in the same league as yours as it was started with a 1/35th Accurate Armour kit . Progress has completely stalled as I was unhappy with the tracks and the painting of the model , but I hope to get back to it before too long .

Quote from: finescalerr on June 17, 2024, 11:29:08 AMLes, go stand in the corner for failing to show us your progress on that terrific model more often. -- Russ

Sending him into the corner is counter productive as he won't be able  to make any progress if he is standing there flicking through your bikini clad bathing beauties photo album.

What's happening with your amusement park ride project?  Did you finish it yet?
