Mike - you have excelled yourself with this latest update - it's absolutely superb (thumb). I particularly like the shots where transitions show parts being added and the closing shots of the boat really emphasise the great progress made and also what beautiful lines K7 has.

I must agree with the above "excelled" indeed Mike. The music slowly building then fading etc totally excellent mate keep up the good work. Action shots of Bill swinging the tapping stick superb :D She really is coming together now and all the knockers and doubters will soon be eating their words. :D

Even I am in awe this time and I was there! Beautifully done, Mickey Bullfrog - your best yet by far.

Oh, I don't know- they'll probably still moan when we very shortly take her totally apart again and turn our attentions to actually putting something inside the central hull. The very nature of what we do can look a bit two steps forward, one step back to an outside observer, but I'd say the steps are getting bigger and bigger...

Glad people like the video, anyway- I didn't do anything different with it, they just turn out how they turn out; it'll be the bit of Hans Zimmer's score from 'Rush' that I nicked that's doing all the work for me there. Cheers, Hans! :lol:

yes, Hans Zimmer, I thourght I recognised his style while watching. I particularly like his score from 'Inception'. plenty of high power musical accompaniment in there when you may need some as well. excellent vid and like others say the great leaps and bounds since the cores were finished obvious and elegant with it. :D

Personally, I was so engrossed in every little detail being shown, and thinking "My god, if only Ken could see the old girl now!", that it didn't register even as having any sort of soundtrack at all (and that was watching it twice, back to back!). :D

Production-wise, what came across to me was yet another addition to Mr Bullfrog's portfolio of excellence. I think that what makes this one stand out is the little 'money shot' at the end (5:58 - 6:02), to which has been leading not only the preceding content of this vid but pretty much everything from the past decade or so: I've said from almost Day 1 of the rebuild that, visually at least, one of the most evocative moments would be when everyone got to see her in one piece and, barring a little detail here and there, fully-dressed (to be surpassed only by seeing her in a shiny coat of blue and that itself surpassed only by seeing her on the water). To the more mechanically-minded of us, almost every little facet of what's brought her to this point has been just short of porn, but there really is something inexplicably magic about seeing that legendary shape complete again. 8-)

We've got a new video up on You Tube, a little time lapse we made last weekend at the Ruskin Museum-
