A bit random this, but an important moment - my first finished lifeboat model.
This 2mm:1ft Altantic Class Lifeboat is a whitemetal model from the Knightwing kits stable (boatyard ?). It is supplied unpainted so I had to have a go.
The boats liveries have varied over the years but I found a suitable photo and did my best to copy it. With the model being only 46mm long, this wasn't easy. All the writing was carried out using a Bob Moore lining pen and the black line is thanks to a bow pen.
Now all I need to do is fit some radio-control...
