Thanks for looking at my canal boat build, please feel free to ask any questions, will probably become a kit in the next few months if I can fit it in around the model locos,

Enjoying the thread Hesky.
Keep the weathering to the hull.
These were home to the family
running the boat and they kept
them as shiny as they could.

Thanks Ned,

Quite right, the locos I do are usually very dirty and battered but canal boats in most cases were kept pristine.

I was at the boat museum at Ellesmere Port a few weeks back and took a lot of pics and measurements of the inside of the living quarters, so may do something for the interior next. With the hatches modelled open the inside is quite visible.

It is the same with military vehicles. Yes, they get filthy, and in times of intense combat, they get battered and chipped etc, but once there is a lull in the fighting, the crews were expected to maintain and look after their charges. My friend Norman said that the designated driver or commander of the vehicle (British army, I am not so sure about other nations) could be put on a charge if the vehicle was rusty or in any other way unusable for duty not caused by enemy action. So, I don't doubt that the decks of those coal barges were scrubbed clean after loading and unloading.
