Hello and welcome!
I think it looks great. First build you say? Bravo! I built the Smit Rotterdam some years ago, very similar only a cm or two longer I think. You know you can put r/c in this one? So if you need something to do when its ready, rebuild it with motors!
Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the replys so far. I feel as if its taking along time for me to get anywhere. But i keep telling myself thats because im doing it properly and not rushing the job. Hopefully thats the way to go with modelling.

I browsed the other EVT Waker thread from work this afternoon but i feel that turning this into an RC is way ahead of what im capable of doing. But one day maybe i could give it a go. I really like the Maggie M from modelslipway :)

Ok quick update. I magaed to paint the rails tonight also added the life rafts and started to construct the bridge. Also spent an hour painting up the roof of the bridge and construting the radar mast. A little bit more touching up tomorrow and they should be good to go.

Quick update

Fitted the wheelhouse and the radar mast at last. Also the hoses are on aswell as the props. I know the paint is a bit rugh in places but once all pieces are in place i will be touching up especially the waterlines.

Very nice

I've just finished making the Smit Houston (this before it became the EVT Waker) Rather pleased with my airbrushing...

Pics will follow when I get my camera back.

Goes very quickly, only 1/10th throttle or less for scale speed. Planes on full speed. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.....

Update
Taped hull for a better line when painted.
TRIED to add cable effect on the winch.
Applied the transfer details to the helipad and hull sides.

Still alot of touching up to do and transfers to make a mess of.  >>:-(

My apoligies for destroying what was looking like a nice build  :((

Im off to sulk.

Taped for straight line


Taped for straight line


Attempted cable effect in progress

Finished cable effect - Yes i know i know  {:-{


Transfers added - Just need to dry out and lose the odd bubble.
