what did you use to make the extra bits such ad the container near the super structure and the winch at the stern?

Hi Guys, thanks for the compliments, this was my first ever go at weathering and I adopted the attitude the more mess the better !!

The winch at the stern was assembled using small offcuts of the small square lengths of wood you can buy, and a bit of round dowel, assorted bent wires, staples, chains, model car tyres.... you name it and its probably there.

The building/container was just plasticard and offcuts - ok not exactly like the original but near enough to do a job I felt. The fiddliest bit here was creating a decking to extend out from the existing deck and superstructure area.
