Model Slipway Maggie M First Build
« on: May 18, 2015, 08:33:36 PM »

Hello all,
I have been a member of this forum few years  now but have never posted be for as I felt I have limited knowledge , but with the help of this site I have completed my first model boat build and this has been achieved by looking at old and new posts for information from painting, electric to building tips etc .
This model will not appeal to all but all comments are welcome positive or negative.
while sailing many people have stopped and chatted with nice comments to me.
hers a few pictures

Wow. It's relatively rare to see weathered model boats, so that is a real treat.  :-))

Hello

Worked on you with photos?

Have already seen you a boat in such a state?

The spots of rust are in precise places, not wherever.

They have a precise shape

Example of a model seen on Mayhem











But your model is the good beginning

A fantastic model for a first build and your level of detailing regarding the battered weathering is just perfect. I've yet to see a perfect fishing boat in real life.
