Hello,
 The light is on, not just on the davits blocks but also in the lorries garage. I 've displayed a mechanism in order to exit an English livestock lorry. This one is a friend's present. I 've apprecieted it a lot because it's not so easy to find English, irish or french lorries.
On partition's wall garage, I 've transfered decals which are nearly similar as the real.

Thank you for your comments,
 Now , it 's time to start lifeboat's modelling. I used the bread and butter technic. I 've shaped a master in light wood such as balsa. I did not have many plans to complete it, so my photos help me a litlle bit.

Hello,
Masters in plaster are now already. It's time to me to me to fix each part.The cover of rafts comes from paper of chocolate.
Handrails are made in 0.3 mm brass.It is necessary to reproduce this 4 times.

Thank you for your comments,
I used same technic to shape 2 "free fall" hull's. I've sprayed paint with airbrush in 3 times.
The next step , I would add decals and some détails.

I have just found this thread and am impressed with the detail and finish of your models Midori.

I like the little bits like the pilot and lorry that add realism and noit alittle intrigue for the viewer.

A video of these working would be great!

Hello everybody,
Lifeboats are on board. I 've tried to detail them as much as I could. One of them can be lifted to water. I've added more LED's on each side.  I've found few crews, but they should be on next photos.

Good evening,
 This is my last davit. This one take place near the starboard funnel . I think this liferaft is used by the officer in order to check an abadoning ship.

Exquisite detail  :-))
Whilst it would have been nice to have achieved such detail on the Free Enterprise V kit, I took the view that I would leave it to the modeller to decide how far he/she wanted to take the realism.  The basics will be there..............

Thank you for comments,
At the beginning of May, it will make two years that I began the model. I think of having begun a too long project, I do not think of redoing of so big model.
But for the moment, I still making a command boat.

Hello,
I had some photos about the last Mont saint michel's sailing. She is nearly finished, and I become impatient to complete her. No more ferries..
