Revell ETV Waker

After being in storage for a long time, thought this is a good project to start up my new modeling life.
The model is a bit rough, as are my skills on the moment.
Changed a bit, removed the Revell idea of a bow propellor and also pimped the winches who where just a solid blump of plastic. But I'm not going overboard 🙂 in changing all the details that are missing.

Slowly plodding allong, almost reaching the painting stages

Hi Michael looks promising. I'm not much of a boat expert so I wonder why did you change the bow? I've read something about a bow propeller? Don't understand that haha.. plane nut..😉

Thanks, Erik. I also have more with the flying things than the floating things. I changed the bow propellor due to the fact that the representation off Revell was not really convincing, as some other parts of this kit. And it was a good way of trying to revive my styrene hacking skills .

G'Day Tim.

Haven't finished it yet, is still packed up. Like the rest of my modelling stuff. Bought a house that needed most of my spare time over the last two years. But I'm now in the last stages of the renovation project, and almost done with rebuilding the attic into a nice mancave. Then I will have the time and space to pick up the styreen molesting again. And I will definitly finish the Waker. I like your Calypso and other aquatic builds.
