Nearing completion. Built from the Revell kit with scratch built added extras and bottom sawn off!
Sea base to make and weathering to finish.
Rigging as per Robert Wilson's (Shipbuilder) preferred method. I need to tidy it up as I had an accident when moving the model and bent the wire.

I am aware the house flag colour is incorrect for the Ross trawler fleet but that is how the decal was printed. As I am not particularly trying to depict an actual ship I am not overly concerned. My aim is to just give an impression of the type of fishing vessels working out of our once great fishing ports.

After coming from the Port of Hull, we had over 180 Sidewinders based in St.Andrew Dock they had a saying in Hull that you could walk from one side of the dock to the other without getting your feet wet when the fleet was in dock. The only Sidewinder Trawler left in Hull is the Arctic Corsair ( H320) which is a Museum Ship.1793305.jpg

I'd like to congratulate you on your seagulls. As a keen ornithologist ( and living by the sea) they are extremely well painted, more so considering the size. Well done!!
