some more pics, i'm finding this very enjoyable to build although i'm not so sure i will do a wooden hull again. i'm adding a few extra's to the boat like more detail in the wheelhouse. i have been using the internet and the film "perfect storm" to get more ideas although a lot of the info i am collecting is of the andrea gail's sister ship lady grace, as is used in the film. when she is built i shall be taking on the task of weathering her.

some more pics of the build. i have changed the equipment on the deck, as the stuff supplied in the kit was rubbish. The andrea gail did not have solid lumps of wood on here rear deck!!!! the build quality is not great because i have discovered i am useless with wood..lol. thats why i will be doing plastic and metal on the next one. (the fishing boat conversion)

There are 2 different versions of the andrea gail. This one, which is all wood and a larger version for RC which i believe has a GRP hull.
