Ugly Ships Recolorficated

The mighty Bowsprite used her dazzle to recolor some ugly ships and made them look muuuuuch better! Please see more of her art HERE!

Flashback week o2-2010

While away at sea I did find some time to keep my promise and at least post one post, this weekly flashback to last years posts.

The Flashback to week 03-2009.

The Rocky Giant was at a giant in being ugly.

The Sea Raven came to us via our Facebook Extension.

The result of building a prototype with Lego, the Neuwerk.

The Calypso Queen has hideous lines disguised with an awful paintjob.

Fairlane found a new Mystery Vessel. Still no news about it though, must be a real mystery!

Flashback week 01-2010

And here we are again with our weekly post, the Flashback, this time to the first week of 2010. We started this week of with the Flashback to week 02-2009.
I’ll be off to sea this week but I’ll try to update the site if & when I can.

A lot of Strange Bridges came up.

Comparing the Oasis of the Sea to a more regular cruise vessel.

The Ady Gil post from a while ago was updated after the vessel was rammed while trying to stop wales getting killed.

And finally we discovered that Ugly Subs better stay under water.

Flashback week 52-2009

Last week I had to skip this part as I was quite busy with a course, busier than expected actually. But his week I’m back & traditionally we start of again with the traditional Flashback, this time to the penultimate week of 2009……ah, those olden days!

The Flashback to the equally penultimate week of 2008.

Another nightmare from the project I was on before this week: the Viking Poseidon.

A bobtailed Tramper with with crooked cranes.

Fairlane did the Seaspan Greg.

We showed the final product of the much modified/repaired/restored & rebuild Kraka.

The once mighty & now scrapped Knock Nevis.

The first (or the fifth) of the Top Somethings-lists.

And the last one for this week, the intended messy Cristal Ocean.
