This one's Really shaping well, looking like the best job anyone's done on this kit, taking it past what Dumas had intended.
 
Bravo !

it better for 20 bucks lol
I made a bunch of little dogs out of .05mm brass and glued them on the doors

I think shes coming along as soon as my little drill bits get here I will do the railings and paint the main cabin then everything can get glued on.

well just need to spray the lower cabin red the green is from spraying the underside of the roof. I am having mixed feelings about putting the lockers on the boat I may just leave them off.

well I got the bottom cabin painted I just need to do some touch up around the lip and paint it white. I haven't glued anything to the cabin yet because I don't want to make putting the railings on difficult. (my drill bits for that haven't shown up yet.) well heres the pics.

well I couldn't put it off anymore so I soldered up the railings tonight it took all day I had surgery on my Jaw today so moving a bit slow, but I think taking my time paid off every joint is clean and doesn't need clean up work.

Really nice builds gents, following closely. Nice to see the railings template in a kit, not seen one before - was it accurate hazegry?

from other threads I have read its accurate I will know if it is or not when my drill bits get here and I can fit it to the deck but when I hold it up to the deck now it looks good. Tugmad post away you really did a great job on your tug thanks for sharing.

ok I pickled the railings what is it you ask you use copper etching solution and etch the railings this helps the paint adhere and makes it less likely to pop off. heres how David Merriman explained it to me
copper alloys are poor substrates for paint adhesion. Pickling is the
process of introducing microscopic pits by acid/alkyd attack. Once pickled, you rub off the excess oxidized metal (do not sand or polish) and lay down the primer. The primer will stick very, very well. Don't do this and the primer-paint will eventually shrug off the work.
Brush on the Ferric Chloride and scrub it into the metal with the
brush till the metal darkens a bit. Then come back with fresh water spiked
with  a little baking soda, and scrub to kill the acid. Rinse with fresh water, dry,  and prime.
