Great - so it will get a good home!

I often wonder what you do with your​ Models when you are finished!

How is progress? Have you decided what to use for piping? I have been thinking about the later but cannot come up worth any good idea.......

Some models are in storage, some I give away when I move out. The Czech Embassy in Nigeria was quite happy with the model of Prague Castle when I left Nigeria.
Getting the right materials for the fiddly bits is a bit of an issue here. I will do the thicker pipes with painted kebab skewers (see pictures), and I already have some thin black electrical wire for the umbilical spool.
And I hope I don't run out of lasercut railings.

I believe a few pictures have gone missing with the server mishap. Here they are again:

And here is further progress on the forward structure. I don't have the materials to do all the fine pipes here, so maybe I'll add these at a later stage.

You are doing your usual superb job on this fascinating and exceptionally complex ship. It meets my definition of being "fomby."

The useful word "fomby" was invented my friend Jim Reuter (JimR in this Forum) and me when we were teenagers in the 1950s to describe any piece of machinery that is ugly, but appealing -- A-10 aircraft, Russian tanks with more than five turrets, 1920s Mack and Scammell trucks, Victorian battleships and armored cruisers, Fairey Barracudas, many steam engines, and almost any Fleet Air Arm aircraft of the 1920s and 30s except the Fairey IIIF and the Hawker Nimrod.

We invented the word while reading the then-newly-published Harleyford book on Aircraft Camouflage and Markings (https://www.amazon.com/AIRCRAFT-CAMO.../dp/B00FN23XRC) and coming across a side view of an RAF Coastal Command Vickers Wellington with stickleback antennas, a chin radar, and Leigh light installation, and having the unit code "MBY" and the aircraft letter "F" so that, with the roundel, it spelled out "FOMBY."

"It certainly IS "fomby" said Jim.

And so it was and, to my eye, so is FPSO Petrojarl Cidade de Rio das Ostras.

Even the NAME exudes fombicity.

Don
