Rigged up the funnel and the davits today.
I guess the lifeboats are next. But I have no idea where to start. Cutting them free from their vacuum forms, I guess.

Your model is turning out to be a beauty - absolutely stunning  :-))
I'm sure you will make a great job of her lifeboats.

Looking absolutely superb Dom. The lifeboats offer an opportunity to take the model to new heights.

As I mentioned in my original review, the boats are steel and therefore flush sided so no need to plank them. I chose to leave both of mine open to give the opportunity to provide internal detail and fittings (not very good photo below - you will do better).

There is lots of information online about ships lifeboats and the way they were rigged and handled.

Thank you, guys!  :-)
Colin, your model is still a sight to behold. And your review is also still plenty helpful  :-))

It's nowhere near as good as yours though Dom!
