Reviresco Minos finished

The Minos is finished and delivered to Chuckaroobob. Here are a couple more in progress shots.

Here is the sides on and the roof of the superstructure test fitted.

Here is an almost finished shot. Everything assembled and test fitted. I just have to glue down the tabernacles and hold covers then finish the two lower masts.

Minos Finished! All parts painted and assembled but no rigging. I didn't really have a good plan to go by and after talking to Chuckaroo we decided running all the lines would get in the way moving figures around. I made some deviations from the standard Minos. The top of the wheel house and the boats are removable for accessibility. I also toned down the colors of the various fittings, so it would look a little more naval and less a colorful floating Greek bordello.
As I type, I believe a plan is underway to make the Minos a centerpiece in an upcoming Prospector Bob pulp game. Time will tell.

Looks good! Look forward to either seeing a report on a game featuring it or god forbid even playing in one!

I believe Chuckaroo is courting his muse and has promised a knock your socks off pulp game ,centered on the Minos, by the weekend.
