Dad's ship gets into the water

Well, had Blogger not been down, this would have been the first place I posted this item: Dad's ship had it's first float test on Sunday, and, well, it floats! If you haven't seen the pics yet over at The Miniatures Page, Lead Adventure or Steve Dean, here they are (I've included a rough schematic of how the interior of the ship is arranged for the pilot and functional items ((as best as I could remember)):


  1. There's a person inside it?!

    Either way, beautiful!

  2. I'm not sure if anyone is inside it for these pics; Stepmom mentioned that there is still some fine-tuning to do in the cockpit. But yes, the ship is designed to have a pilot inside.

  3. Dear God that looks unsafe. What if it capsizes or takes on water?

  4. I wondered about how much it would roll, as well, but it appears to be pretty stable here.

  5. I saw this over on TMP and commented, but at that time I din not realise there was someone in it!

    Thats just insane - good insane, but still insane.
