TRAWLER READY TO SET SAIL

Revell kit complete and moored at harbour.


Here are some images of my completed North Sea fishing trawler, built over several weeks from a 1:140 scale Revell plastic kit. Quite a few detail additions have been installed, mostly scratch built from plastic, along with a set of fishing nets and super-fine rigging to the masts. The piece-de-resistance, is a set of excellent pre-painted Presier 'N' gauge trawler crew figures, which finish off the deck and harbour scene perfectly.

You can see how I improved the trawler kit and built the harbour diorama (including the water), in the latest issue of Model Rail magazine (MR228), that goes on sale tomorrow.
