1⁄35Nan Red and Pier 51
The next update was of the Trumpeter LCM 3 and was the stocking up the Bedford QLD which will be loading onto the boat. This one is for Pier 51, the boats of which were featured here:
The Boats of Pier 51
The Bedord was a scratch build job, based on the old Italeri Portee with an Accurate Armour cab, something I've very chuffed with.
I went a bit OTT with the damage on the front of this one and I'l really like to aquire some proper sized markings for the boat, so a bit of fixing up to do yet.
Both projects are alive and well be it all several years behind schedule, I have a fair size box of additional goodies that need building and still much work to do, but given time I hope that the projects will mature into something worthwhile and even if they don't well I'll have had a lot of fun along the way.
Have I set a time limit on getting the builds completed, well the answer is no, but I'm working on them as time permits. New items and new skills take time to acquire and I have still much to learn.
