This ship has working lights and working flood lights that work indepent. It also has working twin radar beams, engine sound, and horn all on micro switchs. Along with the main engine I also installed a bow thruster.  I really was amazed how well it performed on the water.

Fantastic job on the build. I'd love to have this kit but don't have the space at the moment.
What is the model in the background?

Hi Dennis
I like ferries so your build gets my vote. I liked the lights and thought you could light up the lorry cabs and sidelights too ... maybe ... sometime?

Thanks Dave, I already have lights inside the cab. The pics where taken during the daytime so some of the lighting doesn't show up. Altogether there are about 50+ leds on her. Wish it had been just alittle darker so you get a better idea of how it really appears. Will be taken her out for another spin at night so will have more pics.

Yes! Great model, fantastic pictures. I have been waiting to see this model built for some time as I would love to have one myself and yours really look fantastic! Hope to see more pictures of her running, and perhaps a video? Congratulations!
All the best!

Beautiful job! What kind of paints did you use and how did you varnish her?

Well I don't want to rush you Carl but I dare say there'll be a few more once you go into production.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. As far as the paint goes I used humbrol paints for this one. Seem to work good. I used the enamels as it was easier for me to use in the airbrush. As for primer I used an auto motive enamel gray base to prime everything with.
