Excellent, it could be mistaken for the full size ship.......


There has been only a handful of photos on here (in the threads I have read, there may be more) that really could be mistaken for the real boat. You managed that with a couple of photos, well done you must be very proud!    U2

many thanks  :-) Fairmount is still not finish.. I have many things to do, also cover the top of nav lanterns and build motorized radar.
it was start 26 october 2015, three months at now.

I have to learn the better way to do writings with paint, stickers are orrible and thick but I don't know how.
before I have tried with laserprint and decals sheet but it is not what I would get
 
look at the front writings in this picture, for me looks terrible, if it was true the panel thickness would be of several centimeters

I know what you mean adout the decals , I had some made by a well known decal maker for my cranes and paid over 20 pounds for ,I was not impressed so might change them . I've been on with mine 3 years off and on , I am retired  so finance comes in to it ,have to save to by all the extras .
It looks real good .

Well done ,it looks that if it is operated at a steady speed the work deck will keep dry , so avoiding water ingress .
