Epic journey for sure! Wow! I'm chuckling as I write because of the fun we all had on the project and how cool it came out! Bravo!!!!

Well, you can't just leave us so what's next? Think of all the social repercussions. You wouldn't be on my first check list on the computor with morning coffee. You could lose your creativity and be shunned as a leper. On the other hand this could be the first of many unique creations, causing fame and fortune and demonstrate the cleverness of humans leading to National Geographic shows or even Nova. Great start! Remember us when you are famous!

steve you should be proud of yourself mate , that seascape is brilliant , quick question , how are going to display it , flat or on the wall ?

steve5

 

Thanks, Steve. I appreciate the kind words. I am pretty happy with it. For my first seascape I think it didn't turn out too bad. I am glad the first try tanked on me because this process is much much better. 

To answer your question, it will be displayed flat. Is there a reason you ask?

Thanks, Max. I will try to remember you when I, (cough!), get famous. 

Buddy...I appreciate your encouragement to do another WIP! Lol. I am not sure what I'll do next, and if it will be a WIP. As much as I like doing a WIP, they are a bit of work too. Having said that, I had been leaning to a kit bash. You inspired me with your jet powered Corvette! Or maybe I should do another "easy" build. Rrright... I never make it easy. I am always shooting for the moon! Sigh.

We'll see where inspiration takes me. Thanks again for the fun and support!

To be continued... hopefully.

Excellent work sir.  Congratulations.  It really is amazing what you did. 

I am sure you are happy to be done with this one, but I would take a minute to reflect on how much you actually got done and what "muscles got used", so to speak.

This build has been inspirational to me.  It has made be believe that I can actually accomplish the mid-air refuelling diorama that is in my brain.  

My models have been on hold of late because I have been working on two new bikes....(for me this time), but I have been watching this build and cheering you from afar.

Pray tell what's next in line for Master Bakster?

 

Best regards,

Mark

 

Just keep picking away at it...

Hey Mark... Thanks for all the kind words sir. I appreciate all that.

Yes, I am glad she is done. The project was running long, and the summer months are not my best time to work on models. I made a mad push to get it done. In fact, I was off of work last week and I worked on this a lot during that time. It is amazing what you can get done when you are not committed to a job. Like you said, now is a good time to reflect on what was accomplished.

Mark--keep thinking about that mid-air refueling dio. I am sure there is a way to pull it off. And, I am looking forward to you doing it! That sounds like an awesome project...

I am not sure what is next. I had ordered an Icarus Spaceship and I have grand plans for that one. Lots of custom frills, and it will probably be a dio again. Like I said-- shooting for the moon! Shoot me now. The issue at hand is that I had to return the model because it had serious flaws. I could have fixed them, but the company advised me that they are redoing the mold. They said if I could wait, they'd RMA me, and send another one when the mold was done. I was not in a rush, so why not. That was over two months ago. I contacted them last week and they told me the new mold is done.  So... I might see the replacement soon. If they make me wait too long, I may have to build something else. We shall see.

It's a "Brilliant" work of Art !

I'm glad you "fought" your way to the finish line....

Never give up . Never surrender.

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage".

That is some seriously outstanding work there Steve! I might have to have you over to rig the lighting for my Pegasus Nautilus sometime.

You have to be happy with this.

Sure! Why not. I'd love a road-trip right now. If only...

docidle

I am. I can honestly say that I did everything that I could to make it what I wanted, and it meets or exceeds my goal. That is the gauge that I measure this by. Maybe someday, I will look back and see what I could have done better. But now--it is the best that I could muster.

Thanks again, Steve. It is great to hear that you approve of it.

Stevie my boy, Cap and Steve5 nailed it.

A real accomplishement indeed and your stick-to-it-iv-ness deserves a gold star. You had some tough times and stuck it out.

The Seaview looks awesome and man oh man do I like those lights. I think we all loved that big picture window in the front, your model really shows it off brilliantly.

YesYesYes

My only point of confusion is how there were so few folks following this thread. It was a very fun WIP and I'd also like to thank all the folks involved.....y'all entertained me too and I truly enjoyed it.

Hey Greg-- Thank you for the kudos! And yeah--it was a fun WIP for me too. So much so--I think that I will have to do another one. It keeps me out of trouble.

I mentioned to Mark about the Icarus. I've been told that it is in route to me. The tracker shows delivery early next week. I am slowly prepping things for this next project. It ought to be another fun one.  

Thanks for following this WIP, Greg-- AND, for contributing to it. 

Steve

Yea.... there were plenty of people "Viewing " ( over 30,000 views) but just a few of us who were willing to give / force   advice. L O L

If you liked this build you may like my next. You can find it in the Science Fiction section under Icarus/Liberty 1.

Thanks to everyone that followed.
