quick update; still busy working with plasticard producing/manufacturing the stern frame and net drum.   i am perservering working with plasticard to try and improve my ability to work with it. A comment has been said i make it look easy; to be honest if someone said to me ‘have you a preference’ i would say ‘it’s not that i am stoneaged, but indeed that  I prefer to work with nature's timbers – i feel as though i can shape and finish timber easier and much better than I am able to do with plasticard.  one advantage i have found with the plasticard is the finish its quite easy such as painting – but then again with my painting there isn't much difference between the finish on plasticard after i have finished with it and roughcut timber.
see what you think.

A stunningly sharp build - but I can't over this image:



...just after you said you were going to fill the hull with body filler and coat it in tissue and glassfibre. I see the glassfibre and tissue (just). I don't see much filler. AT ALL. You got a considerably better pre-covering finish than I think I could ever get on a hull using my ten thumbs.  {:-{

Lovely stuff!  :-))

hi all, thanks for the comments, Geoff - I dont think the paint job is good enough to exhibit unless I issue everyone with dark welding glasses so you cant see the bad paint job.  :((  I have another 2 models in for the show though.

hi all

well on the finishing stages now and experimenting with a bit of weathering making model look like a rusty owld heap to match the build quality 0nlything I can say personally anyone looking at the plan and considering making this I have found several errors in the plan itself - namely on the size of the frames on the body plan which dont correspond with the profile plan also the drawings for the bridge dont correspond size wise with the rest of the plans.
