Vestvagoy / A norway harbour at 1/13.7 scale
#16
Franck,
The progress looks good !!!!
Yes, I will be following this closely, because you are modeling "railroad" and "The sea and ships".

I don't think there a a lot of us out here, and as much as I am enjoying what I am doing with my modules, I am also enjoying watching your Norway Harbor taking shape. :tada: :tada: :tada: :tada:

At 1:87 scale, I can get away with a lot of "hinting at detail".
At 1: 13.7 scale, you almost have to model every nut, bolt and washer, not to mention the individual scales on each fish ! Confusedhocked:
OK, maybe not every "scale", on every fish :twisted: :lol: :lol: :lol: :bounce1: :bounce1: :bounce1:
We always learn far more from our own mistakes, than we will ever learn from another's advice.
The greatest place to live life, is on the sharp leading edge of a learning curve.
Lead me not into temptation.....I can find it myself!

For the fish I have marvelous one mold by an english cratfmen. For the rest, effectvly I have no choice, yesturday I put nail to hold the handle :dumb1: :dumb1: The advantage is that the detail are big scale, so it's easier to model it.

Looking really good, and a great idea for a small layout! :tada:

Slightly off topic, but here's a video showing Lofoten from the cockpit of an F-16 fighter. The video was shot last summer by the Norwegian armed forces, in conjunction with the 40y anniversary of the F-16. Just sit back and enjoy the ride!:http://www.aftenposten.no/webtv/Slik-har...40168.html

After a long period of inactivity on the layout, I made some progress on the boat. I need to add few details.

Aaahhrrrrr, That be a fine vessel you got thar, matie !! :tada: :tada:
Bit of a small pilot house, but the interior details there are just perfect.
The two tubs-O-fish, looks like the marnin's been a profitable one.
Hopin' no one trips on, them thar boots :o
With a life raft, a Radar antenna, lights, handrails, and radio antennas, the pilot house roof's a bit crowded.... :tada: :tada:

Waiting to see what other goodies you're going to add. Big Grin Big Grin

I just finish tree locos for this layout. I work hard during 3 days to paint them and weather them.

The first one is a free lance diema base on a 040 davenport of Bachman. I use few laser cut parts.

The second one is a free lance loco base on a 040 davenport of Bachman. I use parts of backwood transkit. I'm not very happy with the result but The loco will stay like that.

I spent a lot of time to finish my boat, I'm not a model boat builder so It's quite boring.

I just finish a snow plow inspired by a narrow gauge model from Germany

[Image: IMG_3665.jpg]

[Image: IMG_3667.jpg]

I just finish a snow plow connect to a loco inspired by a narrow gauge model in Italy.

[Image: IMG_3668.jpg]

[Image: IMG_3669.jpg]

I add also light to my building.

I test also a new kind of snow because I'm fully satisfied by this one.

This week end I wil do an exhibition near Bruxelles with the woolacombe bay.

Hope the exhibition goes well. You've done a lot of really nice work, and should get a lot of praising comments.

In fact I prefer to spent time on the design of locos than boats.
