    I found the deck and side-walls to the Observation Compartment, I'll cast those up over the weekend for you. Still can't find the sail tool (likely lost in the flood of a few years back), so continue on with Dennis' original.

        I have finally been able to continue my work on the Seaview sail by filling cracks, sanding, adding new doors and sail details. I have applied a quick coat of primer and temporarily attached the dive planes. Looking much better I think.

            No problem! I have not been able to get back into the workshop until last weekend so my progress has been slowed somewhat. Your parts have already made a big difference on the sail.

              Not to poop all over your parade, but that 'brinicle' you mounted in the bridge: Its not a brinicle. It's an ashtray! (ducking for cover).

                Already looks much better!
                If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                  See, I actually knew that. Richard Basehart was an avid smoker and quite frankly, I had trouble finding room for a brinicle since the layout of the DeBoer bridge is different from Mobius etc. Besides, its what Basehart would want.

                    I'm an ass . can't even spell it right: Binnacle! I'll see if I can't find a replacement for that ash-tray you got spoiling the otherwise good looking bridge.

                      Well, I'm back. My new job has been kicking my butt and I have had to set aside my hobby projects (gasp, I cant believe I just said that) for the time being. However, work on the Seaview restoration has officially resumed. More to come...

                      I have started working on the stern while focusing on the fins and control surfaces. First, I have removed the damaged fins and removed old epoxy etc with my Dremel. I block sanded the exterior hull both top and bottom and geez... this primer/gel coat/ kevlar impregnated coating is tough. I was able to get rid of some imperfections but revealed even more. Next, I used a two part epoxy to bond the control surfaces on the fins and will follow up with several layers of Evercoat and lots of sanding.

                          Anyone ever notice that the periscope on Seaview was
                          before the hatch in the control room, but was behind the sail hatch
                          on the sail?

                            Any attempt by the viewer to resolve physical paradoxes between miniatures and sets of an Erwin Allen production learn the true meaning of frustration.

                            I know!

                            Guys like Dennis DeBoer, Rick Knorowski, Fred Barr, Gary Kerr, Paul Lubliner, and myself have suffered for years trying.

                              BTY, this is a great shot Dave. Cleaned up resolution wise, and removal of the pool filter gives it a show (story) quality!
