Forgive me asking, but should the jolly boat not be tied up to the jetty?

Good point, I need some 1/100 scale rope............................

Excellent!

This is a great build, it gets better and better.

Thanks you. 

 

I have remade the rack added cargo and rope to hold it all down, painted inside and glued the roof on, time for some paint on this.

Thanks, once painted and a bit of rust and weathering I think it will all come together.

 

Anyone used the Revell weathering set? I want to add to my limited weathering palet and this looks like a good set for the money, only £8.80 on amazon at the moment and it has a white in it . I think the truck and the ship are going to fiddly and small to using chipping liquid or salt on, so going to do it all post paint. 

 

Cheers

This just gets better and better ! The truck is great and I'm amazed at how much detail you have added to such a tiny model, it fits in perfectly with the look of the sky ship 👍

Your all far to kind. 

 

Made a start on the painting the truck this morning before dad duties start. Airbrushed the green so I could do a faded effect and made a start on the wood panel's, I will brush paint the rest of it I think.

Not much progress busy weekend but have the truck looking like this, I'm happy with wood panel's for a first attempt.

i was just looking at this in RFI and as I said over there it's a quality bit of work and that goes woodgrain is so good, not just the graining but the age and weathering on it is perfectly to scale. you should rightly be pleased it's a great job all round very well executed my friend

Moved this to here where is should be. 

 

I thought it best I use my chipping fluid again so layer down some under coat and rust colours, used tamyia Red, orange and hull red for this and I will leave it a good 24 hours before I do anything more with it.

You'll need to find room on it for some I.D. numbers in a contrasting colour.

They seem to feature on most of the pictures I've seen.

At the weekend I found that I still have a Frog/Novo Shell Welder ship I built in the early 80's.

So I think that may get recycled and be the basis of a flying ship sometime in the future.
