- First Name
I took this away on my recent holiday to give me something to do should the weather give me it's usual pounding whilst up in the Hebrides. The elements didn't let me down!
I was able to nearly complete the model as far as was required whilst snuggled up in the motorhome with a glass of summat, listening to the rain and howling wind.
I forgot to take any stage pictures, but as this model has been built a couple of times or so already on here, I hope you will forgive the omission.
I'm going to try and model the tug abandoned up a tidal muddy creek all neglected and sad and quietly rotting away. Tidal, because I can then add barneeculs etc., similar to my Sherman and trawler. Luuveerrly!
Anyway, here is the boat so far. Yesterday I brushed on an all over coat of green primer. Good to see the back of that awful red plastic!
I've just realised that I need to grind off all the moulded on equipment... Ropes, axes, lifebelts etc, as these would have certainly been removed prior to her being 'Decommissioned'
