Love the weathering, as Para Handy himself would say, "Chust fine, finest vessel in the coastal trade'.

Hello there
I have the same model which I am in the process of building or trying to!! as I am a relative beginner and would appreciate any advice you can give me would be appreciated, I am particularly impressed by your painting and weathering, it brings the Puffer to life, again any advice on how you achieved this and what type of paint you used ie acrylics, enamels or whatever and I feel your figures bring the model to life whether they are the correct scale as has been mentioned in one or two replies I know not, and if not what is the correct scale for the crew I would ask any other members, being a novice I would again appreciate any other member.
Thanks, in advance for any advice, John.
