Brilliant modelling as always.

I hope Mr C likes it as much as I do.

Talking of Mr. C, he seems very quite at the moment. I hope he is ok.

Best wishes,

Chris

Masterpice
of two Masters.
Started with the frame to the up and down of the fantastic made sea. A wooden ship by rowing following a seagull. All is in a calm, harmonic color tone. Nothing catch your eye. But you get hungry to view.

This is with respect the contrast program to my current build.
The third picture is in a great angle as we see through the bow like reefed sail.
All pictures are done in the right light.

A high level of scratch made modeling.

Brilliant work, Kostis! A beautiful result in all details: sea, ship and crew. Very nice.

Mr. C is enjoying a well deserved holiday at the moment. He will be back!

Absolutely wonderful!
You could dive into that water, Mr. Cryns' boat is excellent, your painting is exquisite and I love the white water and the little details like the water dripping off the shipped oar and one of the starboard oars that's 'caught a crab'.

If Mr. Cryns is on holiday does that mean we'll be seeing more great photos of ancient vehicles and architecture? :-)

As Wiking said, the best word to summarize all the adjectives applicable to your diorama is simply MASTERPIECE, A COMPLETE MASTERPIECE!

The contemplation of your work, Kostis, is a delight for the senses, as always.

Congratulations. :yeah:

Santi.

I like it so much i nearly became sea-sick eyeing it over and over again.
It sure is a masterpiece and full of bright unfolding ideas on how to base it,and present it after construction. Of course the figures fill the confines of the boat with the dramatic activity of life,and the seagull skipping just above the wave is quite a magical touch. :thumbup:

Kostis,I can certainly see the buying option if available? For many in this vast expanding hobby to purchase both boat and your additional figures.So upon that possibility i leave that for you two guys to ponder over. Of course additional sets of figures would increase many an option for such little boats. The peaceful activities of fishermen kinda strikes my fancy too.

Well done to all concerned with this outstanding presentation.

Mr C,____is another good handle to apply C M Dodson. BB

Thank you so much Stephan, Frank, Gunnar and Paul. :notworthy:
@ BB: The figures I have used are resin copies of existing figures with some modificatons.
The lady is mine with FIGZ 2017 special figure's head. ( I started with a reduced figure from Historex and further sculpted it.)
If you are inderested in her please PM your address and I will send it to you. :-D
The barge is Mr. Cryns's and yes he is selling it. Additionally he is going to produse not only rowers but crew for ancient ships. :-D

As usual, observing pictures of your completed diorama is pure bliss. For this one, those following the threads know a great deal about the work put in to create the scene, boat, and figures. For me, having this insider knowledge does nothing to spoil the mystique of the finished work. On the contrary, it causes me to appreciate it all the more.

Is the princess's demand that the men row faster?

Thank you Dirk and Bluefalchion.
@ Bluefalchion: My humble thought was that she asked for a boat ( barge ) ride. Of course that happened in the middle of her father's preparations for an invasion.:oops: :-D

Fantastic work, seen the ship on FIGZ but you made it complete.
The waves are awesome, and I am glad the head of the lady did fit :)
Keep up the good work!
