Taka by mhmtyrl - 1:35 - Black Sea Coaster

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

 

after a long time I am in the workshop again 🙂 this is my new model Taka, kind of boat which has been in service till 1990's or so in black sea region of Turkey, mainly used for cargo or fishing purposes.

 

the model will be a diaroma, so no planking below the water line. I applied some weathering to one side, later to be applied to all parts.

thank you all for comments and likes

do you think that condition of bilge pump is way too bad? I mean is the weathering too much? would like to hear your comments.

Hi Mehmet

 

Well...my first reaction on seeing the pump was, ‘now that’s rusty!’  But, if you think it’s in keeping with the overall look and feel that you’re trying to achieve, then it looks appropriate.

 

Cheers.

Mehmet,

I find the weathering very realistic. However if it was a real boat I would rather prefer to stay on shore.

Do you still plan to put it in a diorama?

Thank you very much. I also think that this boat is more suitable for shore in reality, but I will use it as a working boat. my problem is this actually, I can not weather the boats in an acceptable way for service :-) hope will achieve one day...
