Hi all I decided to give this one a go, it's actually a very nice kit and at 12.99 cheap.
Here's the box instruction booklet and my start on it.






I intend to put it on a base in a very rough sea.

Looking forward t0 seeing how this develops. It is nice to see something a bit different as well. I would say the water is certainly not to steep and will make for a very dramatic result.

Best regards

Hugh

Looking great. I don't think it looks too steep but I would say from reference it would be a lot higher, almost surfing the crest unless you plan on adding a load of wash over the bow.

Personally I love the pic that you can barely see the boat but god knows how that would be achieved [smile]

Hi all here's the next update, I've heard lots of people say this is a bad fitting kit but I have to say it seems spot on to me (so far anyway) just a trial fit of the top cabin nothing fixed yet I'm toying with the idea of making it removable to show the detailed interior.

I've got to say for pocket money prices this is a really detailed kit I'm really enjoying it, I must have the one good fitting kit airfix made of it because I've got to say so far it's been a perfect fit no problems at all I wonder if there is a bigger than 1/72 model of this kit.

Hi all well I've started the water, obviously needs to be a lot bigger on the spray I envisage it going well over the bow and probably double the ammount coming from the front then lots of connon wool for the masses of foam.

Hi all well I've added more waves (run out of sealant now) still not sure I have enough waves yet, will live with it for a while I can always add more, it will look more realistic when I've added the foam and spray but I can't add that till I've finished the model.

Hi all well here is where it is now. I love the little lifeboat on the deck and have added the grab ropes to it, I drilled little holes in the side then inserted bits of telephone wire which I then draped the ropes over then glued them in place after which I cut the wire off.
After adding the inner parts at the rear of the cabin it would no longer fit on the deck properly after a lot of head scratching I found that the front edge of the added inner bits was fouling with the cabin wall (in hind sight I should have added that wall to the removable cabin) so I've had to shave a tiny bit of try it shave a bit more off and continue in that fashion till it finally fitted.








Still loads to do on this, it really is a great little kit I would put it up there with one of my favourites up with the likes of the Heller 1/8 traction avant or even the big 1/6 scale tamiya bike kits, it's a really great kit and well worth the money.

This is shaping up really well, the water so far looks amazing. Can't wait to see how this continues to develop

Thanks Hugh.
Hi all soon be ready for the fine spray and completion I've added a thin coat of clear resin to the fore deck to show the wetness of it.

Got more of the safety railing on (I'm really enjoying this little kit everything has been a great fit and the detail is really great for such a cheap kit I hope someone brings out a PE set for this kit, it definitely deserves one.
