I tried a test fit of the upper body (lots more filing/sanding of the thick resin body to do - then a tube of filler looks like...) - Initial stage of weathering around the chassis too,.... Now I hope to create the Chatham Mass., USCG decals on my printer and then more weathering - then seal - etc. I will fit the windows (the rear ones I had to cut out from some old clear plastic and test fit them) The kit comes with a windshield (fold out type). Also the passenger/driver door ones. All vac-formed. It's just the rear ones to be made.... It's a lotta' fiddly work, but I like the model - hopefully the finished product will look like the pics earlier in the thread...

You've got the chassis weathered perfectly. What did you use ?

Finished it - A right (I must not use naughty words) at times to be honest - I'm older and my fingers are stiff do handling tiny this resin pieces can be a chore for me - Some of the smaller parts needed further trimming and thinning but I was afraid of breaking them.....

You've done a fantastic job on this build, very realistic looking :clap:

The figures should set the diorama off nicely when finished
