I picked up a model fishing boat kit from eBay, to use in Pulp & WW2 games. These had been recomended on the Pulp Alley players group!
These kits are supposed to be 1:50, but they aren’t! They are more like 1:76, below are the ‘instructions’.
Please be aware that if you are going to purchase one of these models, they are not for the faint hearted, they take some modeling skill.
I also wasn't at all sure about how the rigging of the boat should look, so I searched about on the internet & found the picture below of a small fishing trawler & used this to rig the boat similarly.
Not being happy with the waterlining that I'd done, I decided to cut some more from the hull.
Of course I then wasn't happy & so added some an extra layer of balsa to raise the bow, finally i was happy 😃
Anyway, I eventually chucked some paint at it & the finished boat is below.
I still have to name her, I think I call her 'Nellie' after the boat in Conrads Heart of Darkness book.
Dave at Pulp Alley is also having fun building one of these & a Chinese boat as well over on his Youtube channel
