good evening everyone

 

still never finished her today, but did get to season 5 of Game of thrones

 

life buoys done, I only had flat white and flat red left, and i think its better than gloss, the fish ponds took ages to put back into position, 150 loose boards, i cannot secure them until im sure how the build is going to be displayed

 

lighting tested and working, 2 circuits nav lights on one, everything else on the other

Good evening everyone

 

 

well that's it, the trawler is finished, but that not the end of her, she will be going into a diorama at some stage in the future, i will at that time do any weathering 

 

i enjoyed a this build a lot, the instructions were poor, plans not much better, every bit of white metal required some attention, and i would do it all again tomorrow 

 

painting was mainly rattle can primer  and acrylics left over from other builds large amounts of Red, white  with Matt black were used 

 

i would like to thank everyone who has followed me , and for comments and likes, going to spend tomorrow cleaning up the mancave and get the next project on the go, see you all on another thread
