From yesterday
 


Today windows removed.



Final coat of white to upper two levels. Two days minimum drying before masking off for tread surfaces in red primer and matt lacquer. Then windows back in and wheelhouse interior detailing.

Just before today's light faded I painted the modified guard rails (Brass) in Tamiya grey Fine primer/Halfords red primer/ and Halfords matt lacquer.
The bollards I decided not to change to be more accurate as they look ok and there are so many nothing like attributes that it matters not. So I finished them in John Deere green.

I decided on the same matt green for the wheelhouse floor as used in Portgarth (XF-71). Still undecided on furniture.





Some reassembly done.  More pictures in the gallery

Steady on Andy - you're in danger of actually finishing this one!  %%

Great work as always.  I even joined the tug group so I could see the full works of your build.  Most enjoyable.

Thanks Greg  {-)


Still a very lot to do but I am further than anticipated. Today I've been looking at signalling and navigation lighting (NON working)


The best are by CAP Maquettes but they know how to charge! so high priced they will go out of production I predict.
Would easily cost £50 for less than 15 pieces of coloured resin and they still need painting. Such a shame but they should look at selling by the packet rather than one at a time.


So these are still my biggest hurdle as I won't pay that sort of money. I expect the French find them equally as overpriced.


Today I had a huge bumble bee in the garden and this evening the blackbirds are singing so painting weather is approaching  :-)


Major items complete include propulsion.
All superstructure.
All companionways.
All windows and frames.
All railings.
Most of the mast.
All deck fittings.
and more

P.S. I post to about 5 or 6 Facebook groups around the world at different times but the Tug group is the main focal point
