Weathering in this case means mucky, they weren't "yats" by any means.

Yes, Dave that would include weathering proberly lots of it but not over done so the more info I can collect hopefuly the better it will be want it to look like a little brother of a 1:24 scale.

hollowhornbear

which kit is yours from (if it is a kit) and what scale is it,
other than the 1/72nd of Model Slipway and Deans Marine versions?

It has obviously had a rough life, judging by the weather beaten appearance!

Hi Richard,
it is the model slipway 1/72nd scale one. took as long to weather it as it did to paint it pristine.
one thing i intend changing is the over scale railings.
