Dear Mr C.

As stated before, you are a modelling genius.

The research into your subject matter was encyclopaedic and the effort to produce phenomenal.

Brilliant.

Yes those ancients had a bubble wrap sea too, to set sail cloth upon.
I believe if it works then clear foggy through use it.
:coffee: Quite a splendid bobbing boat Mr C :thumbup: BB

Dear Forum Members,

Thanks once more for many beautiful reactions .

Leonid I like your words. A good saying. But my ship is not THAT expensive :-D

BB I hope you are doing fine and your health is still improving. I can see you have been very productive the last year. And yes the bubble wrap sea was an experiment. The big waves should in fact have been foreground, the small waves background instead, all for the perspective effects... but in the foreground the bubble plastic was so not-convincing that I turned it around. A good epoxy sea should have been much better. But I liked the spectacular light effects, bot reflexing flairs as translucent light fall, too much to do the photographing all over again.

Well thats not up to me to decide and compared to countless plastic model kits my resin cast work is pretty rough... though lively :oops: . But when it comes to stuffing an ancient ship model with amphora cargo, I think you could be right.

@Caruana: Hello Ray its great to hear from you again and I love your painted medieval bowmen!

Kelmi, Kostis and Santi, thanks for your words.

Hello Mr C, i am presently doing lots of things as each day makes it`s roundabout circle above all our heads. However not necessarily in my chosen field of activity in the hobby i love. Out of bona fide interest i have been following your progress at that other place too. Well done on getting the job done yourself. BB

Dear Mr. Cryns, your model is looking wonderful and very professionally produced. I wonder how you feel being a businessman now, instead of an artist?
