Something a bit different, Cats broke the model, so I made it in to a ship wreck diorama.Did not want to bin it, so I had a wrecking day. :)

superb idea with recycling the model -
just a small observation on my side - the wreckage hasn't been very heavy or the loco + truck would have gone loose from their neat storage places ;)

Yes you are right, but it only brooke his back on a shifting sandbank, when we had loco`s and carriage as deckscargo the welded railway tracks on to the deck and then lashed them down with 1 inch steel cables and chains. Just pretend in youre mind the have taken all the lashings off and on the next tide the will crane them on to the barge. :)
Thanks for the comment, I am a bit off a oddball. :D

Nice save Maximus. Very ingenious.

What's become of the cat ? Is it in the sausages, or perhaps ravioli ?

australia perhaps, they must be damaging lots of models in the outbacks as aborigines eat cats - but question is, where do they get the models from...

Great idea Max, well worth a K.

Puts me in mind of old photos of the oil tanker SS Ohio being nursed into Valletta harbour with a destroyer each side to keep her afloat.

I remember that, must be one hell of a voyage for the crew, but the made it, good old seamanship and a sprinkle of luck.
Do you remember that film with Humphrey bogart onboard that tanker the abandoned and re borded it to take her home, I think it was called San Demitry or something like that. Good film worth watching again and again.

Superb stuff have a K :clap:

Love the re-cycling idea.

It is fun and you can youre emagination run wild.
Again thanks for the replys, I love a bit of good natured banter and the kind compliments.
Use to do dioramas with armoured veicles and there was allways a blown up tank or truck on it. :D

Yes, that is the one, good old black&white film where you can see the real old ships. Love it and watch it again when it is on tv, or perhabs see if the do that on a DVD.
Nothing beats the old films when the got the right ships or veicles for that time.
Watched a film onces, dont know the name, suppose to be at the turn of the century, the just stuck a canvass bag over the Radar of that ship. Put me off that.
