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.

What the others said about the 'water angle.' This sort of situation is classic for lifeboats and will be very effective. Looking forward to what comes next!

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.

It's a tight enough fit I probably won't need them but thanks

Luv the detailed interior! Since none of the "below deck" stuff is there, a nice topside cabin is a great addition. I like the colors too, thanx!!!!

Nice interior. And I love the stance on the high seas.

Looking better and better. The railings are essential, add to the realism. The base is pretty cool!

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.

Wow! That wave is awesome! Even without the additional detailing it already looks like the real thing.

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.
