I'm making progress in my plan to turn a 1/142nd scale trawler in to a 1/72nd scale trading vessel.
First pic some of the unwanted detail removed, including the winches which left a hole in the deck in front of the superstructure.
Second pic, more detail removed and a new front superstructure made from plastic card.
Third pic, superstructure completed and deck hole plated over. Railing holes filled with green stuff and hull cut down to waterline level.
Next job is to add hatch and windows to the new superstructure and build one large hatch-cover on the foredeck. Oh and to find a suitable ship's boat.
