Title: Converting the Seaport into a smugglers boat (old tug)
Post by: gjorans on July 01, 2013, 09:41:29 PM
I have started a new kitbashing project. I have plans to make it into a retired tug that is use by smugglers.

Very nice conversion and detailing  :-)) , there appears to be no end as to what can be done to a Seaport.

Some more progress. I have added a matte coat and done some weathering. also added a "oldschool" crane system to the front. Remember I use only what I already have around on this project. I will not buy anything new. [/size] keeping it free

Like this conversion. Lot's of character. Be nice to see some video of it on the water once finished.

Thanx. I am looking forward to getting it in the wet myself. Some more progress. I have added a captain and put in the windows. I have also added some brighter leds. I am considering colouring them to add some “age” to them.

The "pornography" too the captain. Had some problems making the picture through the small hole in the floor.
