Tiny lifeboat

Atlantic Lifeboat

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...

As it is whitemetal I guess your first problem is getting it to float!
