Hi Guys  most of the hull in now painted just two areas left to paint. Just a few pictures showing the paint job and fittings fitted with brass pegs for ease of painting also fixing in the deck.

I love that green Stan. She is turning into a beautiful boat. I bought a Badger single action 24 years ago and it still serves me well on the odd occasion that I use it.

Hi all two steps forward 6 back after applying the grey primer it was obvious more filling would be needed. Just a few pictures showing filler rubbed down when dry will clean off. I  hope to be in the paint shop by the week end.

It is a shame that you could not have used the rubbed areas as part of your weathering and wear processes Stan. Still, she looks good with all the accessries aboard. I am impresed with the quantity you have there of pots, floats and other gubbins :-))

Get well soon and drink lots of orange juice for that Vitamin C boost. It does work, I have done it for twenty years.

Wonderful model (I saw it at Doncaster last Saturday), anyway, Iwas wondering if it would be possible to obtain a set of drawings for this boat
I would like to build another fishing boat to go with my Sheila (70s Scottish seine netter.
Once again congrats on your excellent model.

HI Guys update on my build or not. My garage is now  full of widows, Cement, Glass, Radiators and other items used by builders. Had no power in the garage for a week my fishing boat is packed away to keep all the dust off it. It looks like it may be a while before I get back to building again.

Stan. :(( :(( :(( :(( :(( :(( :(( :(( :(( :(( :((Later  :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-))I will be back
