It's not a decal but a printed styrene plastic Mapel Leaf. Currently awaiting a better version on it's way from Darren in Canada  ;)

I decided the boat was in need of further weathering down, didn't want it to look as though it's just left the shipyard, but instead look as though it's had a few years at sea. That's the last of the weathering for me as I feel any more would spoil her, less is more as they say!

New additions would be the GPS Dome, weathering of rust on handrails and hull and rear work deck area, three crew figures added.

Very impressive. Just the ticket, as they say.

Well done

Thanks for that Ken!

Been busy changing a few things, adding things etc. The the buoys have found their positioning on the deck (Navigation buoy still requires weathering on the top ring, electronics, and then it's complete), concrete blocks were made out of the usual plasticard, chains were added, a container was built up and added to make the rear deck look a little busy, vinyl safety signs were purchased off ebay, oil drops were added on the rear superstructure to simulate leaking fluid, life rings stripped and repainted as I made a poor job of painting them in the first place (not pictured), CCTV camera was made up from plasticard-waiting for the paint to dry then It'll be fitted.

*A big thank you to Darren in Canada for producing some excellent transfers  O0*

Cheers Darren  O0

I've not applied any transfers to the boat as yet, only tested one of the maples on an already sprayed piece of plasticard and it looked fantastic!!! I'll be applying the transfers last as I don't want to scratch any while I'm still changing things on the boat, still unhappy with a few things I've done which could have been done better had I taken my time and thought it through  ::)

CCTV camera fitted tonight

Liferings now repainted with added reflective strip
