And now, even with paint...

The canal boat model got its cream two days ago and today, after well over an hour of masking with plastic tape used in the clay modelling game, pinched from VW years ago and finally found a use for, its blue.  The cream masking was then removed with success and we now have only the dark red to do at the rear and then tidying up, before clear coat.
Apologies for the typically shitty photos, but my camera will NOT take pics indoors and despite a bit of sun, the dogs will jump on the outside table if anything that smells different appears for their noses.
After all the painting shenanigans are done with and the clear coat goes on, the red oxide floors and rear roof can be done and the hull sides and bits of the bow will get matt black to simulate the black epoxide Bitumen that most narrow boats get these days.
More anon........


  1. Hey there! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I
    had to ask. Does operating a well-established website like
    yours require a large amount of work? I'm brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary on a
    daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers.

    Here is my homepage - sustainable gardens

    1. No, I just googled free blog sites and picked this template. Time-wise, you only spend as long as you want on the text.

  2. It's looking very nice. Will it have roses and castles? :-)

  3. Not on a tug, Iain. Tugs have scrolls and it will have them, but roses and castles only go on carrying boats. But I've just heard that the client hasn't yet pootah drawn the decals, so it won't now get done till I return from my break away.
