Seeing how you like scratch building, and considering the price of the 1/72 kit, how about you being a volunteer?!!

A start made on the boats flags - next the tricky bit painting the hammer and sickle on the flag.

As wise Haddock keeps telling me - before starting on any part of a model you MUST :-
Think - think again - then think some more - then plan - then think about your plan - make any changes - then think again about your new plan - only then do some work with tools and plastic.
So I did all the above before making the exhaust pipe for the boat. Drilled out the end of the brass before bending it to shape,made and fitted the brackets to the pipe in the correct place, making sure they all touched the deck and drilled out the hole in the deck so it would be strong. Glued the pipe onto the hole in the deck and glued the 3 brackets to the deck - sat back with a big smile and thought job well done.
Then I realized I had painted the pipe and brackets  deck grey but forgotten to make the pipe rust coloured. So now have had to paint the pipe in place with all the problems that has caused instead of BEFORE it was fitted to the boat. What will Haddock say next meeting ??????

Hi Msea,
Just a water base to add, but a very nice 'Original' build.
It looks good in pictures, but no doubt even better up close.
Cheers,
Bigkev

Flags and rigging added to the boat.  Next job a few spots of rust, then fasted down to the base and add the sea.

Thanks Zak - but you see every problem with your own model, especially in photos. The rail stanchions are a bit thick - tank turret needed to be larger and wider - faces not up to Howard standard - but hey ho its only a model an supposedly for fun.
Will get on with shading on the sea and then a coat of gloss gel.
