This is what the superstructure looks like up to now, only the doors and roof handrails to fit and then itís off  to the paint shop.

Started the painting today, the hull and a few of the deck fittings.
Firstly I gave the hull a final rub down with 320 wet /dry then cleaned it down with a tac rag,
I always use Halfords spray cans which I place in a sink of hot water which thins the paint down and makes it flow better.

The hull and some of the fittings sprayed with Halfords satin black.

That is starting to look pretty good!

Why are you using normal propshafts?
This is an A(zimuth)S(tern)D(rive) tug.
There are pretty good azimuth's (schottels) for sale, and their not all too hard to build.

hi Jenni,
you say about putting the spray cans in warm water helps it flow better. I use halfods spray cans and I must say the paint job looks much nices than yours then mine usually does. I assume this is because you've warmed it up. would this work with all spray paint cans, and how hot is the water you put the into? Is it hot water from a tap or kettel ?

Thanks, Dan

I would think that is because that is how the kit is supplied, and it is an official build for the manufacturer, pretty obvious really.

The cans only need slight warming, do not leave standing in boiling water unless you like living on the edge or are into extreme sports.

Tweety777 , it's just as Bosun says it's being bulid as the manufacturer supplied it,but it's your choice what you fit. Thanks Bosun

Dan/DickyD ,   Sorry i should have stated that the water is from the tap and is only hand warm.

Well this is it at long last sheís finally finished,
 Apart from the wire for the hand rails and the rubber around the hull, what you see on the model, you get in the kit, This is MMBís first kit and itís been fun building it, maybe not for a beginner  but for someone who got a couple of builds  under their belt itís ok.
So enough words Iíll let the photoís do the talking.(and thereís a lot)
I will add a video as soon as I can.
Nice one Mark and Ang when is the next kit going to be released???????????

I would like to thank you all for your kind remarks during this build.

                                          Jenno.
