Finally i've found some time to work on this model again:

Rear-deck is being weathered.

More weathering.

Working on a camoflouge scheme, hope it will look nice, otherwise it will be replaced by a blue and a yellow stripe.

Weathered a bollard.

Ships in war mostly look pretty rusty, and so will this model.

Paint has been damaged due to the walking over it.









And even more weathering, and still by far not finished!

Greetings Josse

Here's another update:

Roof of the old wheelhouse has been placed.

Gun has been placed as well.

Foundation for the gun is being placed.

In order to be able to moor her properly i've made some deck-planking and put some bollards on it.
The camouflage has also got some more attention.

Then the lights went on.





Moored, and being mooved by the waves and current (my hands), shuttertime 30seconds.

Hey Josse, I think that guy on your bridge is NOT authorized.

I notice this because HE has the peg on his head when he took the flying-saucer off

He should be strictly on deck duty.

Hi Silent Hunter,

I don't understand what you mean, could you explain it?

Hi Josse, here is the guy i'm talking about. You gotta watch him close.


The saucer on his head is a dead give-away,

Hi Silent Hunter,

Thanks, but the guy at the helm is a different one from the guy with the flying saucer, so it's ok.
The Chinese guy might be useful for operating one of the weapons aboard the ship.

After not having worked on this model for over 2 years, mostly because of a lack of will to get this build going again because the problems that needed solving required much work for a model of which I'm only proud because I build it myself.
Therefore I decided (after lots of thoughts) to trash this model after having taken out the needed and useful components like motors, servos, electronics etc.
At this moment the boat is resting at her final place.
Now I have even more room for much better looking models which will make me even more proud of my work.
I have certainly learned quite a lot of lessons from this model which will be taken with me in the Well Enhancer and other projects that are still to come.

Greetings Josse
