    Hi Scorpio

    Outstanding, they look as if they will float away so real.

    Regards

    Scorpio, your work is absolutely amazing. How long has it taken for you to develop your building skills, and are you one of those lucky few who are professional modelbuilders?

    Superb work again, Scorpio!
    Tell me, if you would, how you made the rubber dighies to sport that nicely curved outer tube. Such fine work, my friend! :D

    I had the same question, then did a double-take of the picture... a thought occurred to me, shamefully, they look a lot like, er, um... prophylactics. :oops: Let's see how that translates!

    They look lovely, and fine craftsmanship indeed.

    Hello friends,

    I have made the rubber dinghies of 1.5 mms of the full rubber tube, therefore, they are nicely round. With the camouflage were sound differences. I have already corrected them.

    I also have for you an Avatar of course if you want them.

    Thanks, Scorpio! :D
    Those dinghies came out exceptionally well! Rubber tubing was used, you say? I bet they can actually float too. :lol:
    Superb job on those details, and very nice photos.
    Thanks so much,
    Jim

    The life rafts look exceptional, Scorpio! Using rubber tubing was an inspired idea. :)

    Rubber... I wasn't too far off. Even the paper purists would have to agree that they look spectacular. Gute Arbeit!

    P.S. Thank you for the avatar, I feel like I just joined an exclusive club.

    Hello Scorpio

    Your ships are fantastic!
    I have never built a ship, yet, but looking at you models sure makes me want to give one a try!
