That's a great result Carl.
Neat paintwork for sure. Ship superstructures are a b****r to paint, yours looks very nicely done.
"Far from perfect" Don't worry about that, there is no such thing as perfect and if anyone who states or even thinks, his or her work is perfect, they are best avoided.
No matter what short comings you think are in this model. you are learning from them, and your future builds can only get better.
We all learn from each build we complete.
Bring on the next!

I pinched the rigging cotton from my titanic model which is still in the box which was twice as big scale wise. It was probably too thick for that also. I did have some other nylon and some stretchy stuff but that was for 1:48 aircraft and looked too thin. When I make the next boat I will look to get the correct thickness next time. Thanks for the link.You may want to try some really thin thread for rigging
you can get specialist rigging material, but it is very expensive for what it is!
Yes, I drilled 0.5mm holes and tucked in the rigging cottons and glued it. Used my little dremmel type drill . The rigging is not particularly pretty but again I learnt as I went along and I reckon the next boat should be a bit tidier.Excellent finished model. Pleased the rigging at the top of the funnels finished well, did you drill small as we discussed on the build?
That’s the plan for after Christmas and hopefully being a slightly bigger scale will be a little easier on the eyes.HI Carl thats an excelent model an very well finished off paint wise i really loved all the big liners an they look very colourfull brilliant model an you building the hood YES please id love to see you build that hopefully in 1/350 th scale where all the detail can be seen bring it on i say
