Hearts of Foamcore part 3

As I mentioned previously, the next plan was to add some anchor chains to the pointy end of the ship.  These were made from bits of broken jewellery chain provided by the lady of the house.  The winding gear is represented by a couple of spare stowage boxes from the Matchbox Stuart kit.

I've also had a go at making some hatchways for the superstructure...

... and as you can see, I've slapped on base coat colours to see what the overall effect looks like.

Detail painting and the addition of crew begins soon.

Looks really good so far. Coat of paint brings it all together well.

Cheers, Andy

Yeah but I'm knackered this evening - will have to wait.

Brilliant, just spraying some sea tiles for it to sail across :-)
