Great weathering! Wayne

Cheers John!

Yep, new lifestyles in order, but so long as i'm better then I can live without my treats.

She does look as though she's had a few years service doesnt she  {-) As you rightly said before the Smits are fairly well looked after, however i came across a picture of one in drydock and boy she really had seen better days!!! I didnt want mine to that degree so ive been careful where and what i've weathered as i'm going for well-used but not knackered look lol.

A superb job on a realistic effect Wayne,not overdone the rust,looks right.
Now some close up shots on a bit of murky water would be great.
Well done

Going hell for leather trying to get her finished and running as I've had her in storage from the day I got her, I'm just itching to see how she handles!

  If it's the one that's on from the Antique House, Voyageur's is head and shoulder above  to that one in quality.
