As you may remember from my last post, I said I was about to
commence the building of the T030a Clyde Puffer from Scalescenes. It was
supposed to be made in the reclaimed space I retrieved in the loft, but this
wasn’t to be. I’ve been at work between
Christmas and New Year, and to say it’s
been quite would be a huge understatement. So, I decided to take the model to
work and build it there.
Unfortunately I’ve not taken any pictures of the build, apart from one, when I
ceremoniously laid the keel. But I’ve taken a few of the boat in all of its glory to show you now that it’s nearly finished. The model comes with
an editable name feature. So it had to be named after my Grandson Jack.
I found the rigging a bit of a fiddle, but that was because
I’ve got sausage
fingers. I even improvised and platted a chain from some fine brown cotton for
the steering chain. I think it worked.
Overall it was a pleasurable build, a one I would highly
Well, next week should be back to normal, and I’ll have to do some work
instead of modelling. Oh well!!!
To finish this post, I would like to wish all that have read
my ramblings, over the last twelve month, heaven knows why, a very happy,
healthy and prosperous 2017. May all your families be safe and healthy, and you
make all the right choices to fulfil your aspirations.
Be safe and have a wonderful 2017.
Happy New Year.
John @ Scalescenes, keep up all of the good work, and here’s looking forward to some
fantastic new kits in the new year.
