Boaty Mc Boatface

What I know about boats you can write on the back of a stamp, so apologies to those that have more knowledge. What I was looking for was something akin to a semi abandoned craft left on the foreshore inspired by a couple of photos that I took at Rye Harbour. The base for this is the well used Zvesda kit for a medieval lifeboat. I'm quite pleased with the almost 'paint expired' finish, but I couldn't get the lighting right and it doesn't come across in this shot.

  1. Beware! It still looks like a medieval lifeboat! There are too many thwarts (transverse seats) and thole pins ( the projections on the gunwales). You need to set to with a saw and scalpel to make it look more like an English fishing boat. Have a look at what I’ve done on Compass Point.
