Perhaps Hebridean more than Highlander might be more accurate?

The boat seems to be smooth hulled (carvel-built) which isn't traditional. Clinker built is the more usual.

Throw in some red, lateen sails & it'd be a Sgoth Niseach.

I saw one when in the harbour at Stornoway when I was last on Lewis.

Regardless, I think it is lovely! If we can have penguins in the Arctic, surely we can accommodate carvel built boats! ;-)

This is specialists knowledge, what I should have heard about in an earlier stage ---next Time, I promise. Thank you! But I have done, what I was bet to do.....I have spent more effort in the salmon. Do you think it is right? ;-) (never before painted fish....)

Very nice idea! Don't think we've had many fishermen here. I remember Alex converted one of his figures to a fisherman and maybe Michel have made one, but I think that's it.

If there will be any water under the keel. So I will belief that they will do fishing.

For me they do ( typical Bavarian :-D ) at 0.41.

What a different idea.

The Highlanders look lovely.

The fish looks slippery , what is not to like?

Best wishes,

Boy, did I sound hyper-critical. My apologies: I was just offering some background comment & really should have written they are lovely models, painted with skill that shows both character, life&movement. Nice work on the tartan, too, which could be a Lamont sett which is my father's clan.

Indeed, the "grey-beard" looks a little like a photo I have of my grandfather, who was a weaver rather than a fisherman but I'm sure lowered a rod for salmon on occasion.

Thanks for wonderfully nostalgic diorama.

Never painted a salmon, but yours looks good! :thumbup:

I rather cook them. Or some smoked salmon between some toast and with some mozarella, delicious! :-D
