I've started a new scale model build as a youtube video series. In part 1 I'm starting to add landing gears to the tiny model and to my amazement find small enough optic fibers (and a matching 0.25 mm drill bit) to attempt lighting this true small but very detailed minature.
I've finally started painting the boat. Allthough the deck is far from perfect, I decided it would be nicer to show the wood instead of hiding it with paint. So the deck and coamings are in clear varnish. Interior in grey. Before that I reinforced the cockpit bottom with some slats. Still working on some deck fittings, the cleats mainly. Plan is to launch the boat in two weeks!
