I wanted to share some of the "Behind the Scene" shots of Mystery Ship and the sets.

The Sea Ghost before departure:

A few of the crew on the pier:

Jim Doohan tending to one of the life boats.  Perhaps this is why the engine room is being neglected. :-D

Stinky Stillman doing a little fishing:  

Posted Image

Manny and others tending to the cargo:

Posted Image

Dock 13:

The Steering Room:

Another shot of the Sea Ghost next to a small fishing boat:

You've got to love the old Diver sets.  What a great little ship:

A lot of great work there. The glass over blue fabric water effect is very nice.

I especially like the boats and that taxi in the first shot. Simple and effective.

Only thing that stands out as odd is the one fleshie. Is that intentionally meant to represent something?

Mystery Ship On!  *y*

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

Interesting that you noticed him.  Keen observation.  Perhaps later, his mystery will be revealed.

Thanks for those pictures Mr Brickster! Perhaps I'll buy this set.
I really love the scene you made, especially the part where Stillman's fishing.
And that dock, isn't that a Spiderman set? If it is, you made great use of it!

I like the way you made the dock.  And the lantern is a nice touch.

Thank you. The dock is part of my Colonial British Harbor;

I just came up with the lantern design yesterday. I need to use it again somewhere, I quite like it.

I could tell what it ws from the picture. That's pretty clever. Will a round 1x1 plate fit on the bottom as a lantern base?

How did you desire your galley to look, Mr. Brickster? I think the decors is great, I especially like the fishing net and that neat chandelier design. No complaints here!

Great! Yes, it will fit, but the lantern doesn't need to be and longer than it already is, so I left it off. Thanks!

In regard to the galley, I was looking for a lot of nautical collectibles - like you might find in a seafood restaurant.  It needs to be more "cluttered".

EDIT:

Oh, and here's a few very special images of my old office where I use to write my mysteries:

I wonder, the hull of the cargo ship itself, what set does it come from?  :-)  I like it a lot.

This is one of my favorite 2007 sets.  The set is worth the cost.  The dock, crane, and truck are really "top notch".  I definately give it  *y*  *y*  up!

Mmmmh, I'm still hesitating... I've seen the ship on a shelf and that hull reminds me of M&*(A)Blocks, because it looks like it's only one part.

But if it's really worth buying, perhaps I'll change my mind and buy it after all.

You're not the only one, I'm hesitating too. I might be a bit of a cheapskate but for a set that size I'd pay 45 maximum. Perhaps it's my cheap nature  :-D  But I just can't buy it for that price. :-(
