Hi all,

Progress is slow on this one, The Vacform lifeboats supplied with the model were pretty basic with no relief, I could of Planked the outside and inside but between time and cost resin options were a more suitable option. Cheque booking Modelling at its best.

These resin lifeboats were got from Cornwall Model Boats and look pretty nice once tidied up, the Resin was still tacky when I got them, A Dark grey wash over the whole boat then to bring it to life.

Got the Rigging and Davits complete, The White metal Castings were pretty poor and I ended up using some plastic rod for the cross bars which made it look much better. I completed one side and then discovered that the Kit did not have enough Walnut 2 hole blocks so had to place a second order for some of those. anyway here some pics.

also been working away slowly at this one, the Coal Hatches have been completed and painted, Small bit of weathering needed to take the glossly look of em.

also the Nav lights have been wired up and are working, When this was done this enabled me to glue the main Cabin on and the Bridge and then complete the side guards (?) and bridge supports, One more to do here.. Next up is the Ladders and handrails and to tidy up the white area where I had to build up the Hull sides as they were about 3mm low.
