A small coastal ship, WIP-3

Work has progressed nicely on this, I bought some doors and portholes plus a few other ship bits for it and have added the wheel house (to be glazed when painted). At the moment I'm working on an alternate deck configuration with the derrick in the middle.

A small coastal ship, WIP-2

for the ship I've gone for a simple freighter - the main deck and derrick are removable - allowing the ship to be something else (alternate main deck/derrick position).

A small coastal ship, WIP-1

Something a little different to work on ...
I picked up this hull and some parts cheaply at a local Toy & Train fair;  a part-built project - I've kept the most useful bits and the plan is to make up a coastal freighter of sorts.
