Michael, your little beauty is really starting to come together! I especially like your work on the deck -

-you're right, the trenches on the kit part were a bit much. Your approach to fixing that looks just perfect!

...some progress:





and the hull, covered with tape for painting.
Slowly, very slowly it's going to look like a war cutter

There is a nice wooden deck in the kit, but the trenches....


So I've drawn new and corrected caulking lines on the backside



A grey wood stain was used to make a used look





I hope you like it
