The boat model was from one of those part works (where you buy a magazine each month and build the model with pieces that are included - I think this one was HMS Victory). The boat is a metal casting that I have had in my Spares Box for ages.
I built the wooden supports from toffee apple sticks and mounted the model on to an oval of 3mm thick plastic card. The basket with old rags, is a 1/43rd metal casting intended for O Gauge model railway layouts. This work-in-progress shots shows the model finished and undercoated.
As stated earlier, I have used my spare time (down the shed and listening to Five Live - the BBC's sports radio station) to finish a whole batch of wargame terrain. This is just one of many.
I hope that you like it. More to come.
