Thanks Mike Thayer, Bryan & Carl.
Still slow going. But that's just me.
Every time I think I'm just about done, I find some other small details I need to add.
And I tend to overthink things.

The gallows are in place. Got an anchor winch made. Also the deck bollards.



(The hauling winch is not fixed in place yet)






Now just have to make a couple of otter boards to hang off the gallows.

Rob, Very impressive...The fishing boat looks real. Could be a support boat to use in a Jaws movie!

Thanks Dave, Phillip & Horton.
Lots of scratchbuilding, but it's what I enjoy.

Thanks Mike and Ted. I'm happy with it.

I needed to add a life ring. These usually hang on the side of the wheelhouse, but my design didn't allow enough space.
Sometimes they also sit in a cradle, so I built one from styrene. Placed it at the back of boat, as that area is a bit empty.

I painted the Model Tech Studios life ring.

Otter boards fastened to the gallows.


Boom rigging


And deck clutter to finish it off.






The net is tulle




I will take some final photos outdoors tomorrow.
I'm really happy with how it came out.
The kit was under $12. Basically only the deck & hull from the kit were used, and modified those a lot too. But with lots of scratchbuilding I was able to make a really nice model.
