SS Wendover

SS Wendover...

The ship was launched in 1928 and sunk by the Germans in 1943 according to the ship's history that comes with the instructions. The kit is probably one of the nicest castings from Loose Cannon to date. It also comes with a dedicated PE sheet and a spare resin propeller that goes on the poop deck. I used Floquil and Testors paints, and Alclad Polished Brass for the spare screw. I scratch built the masts, used caenis line and stretched sprue for the rigging, and Gold Medal Ultra railings, even though the kit has a nice PE sheet. The "W" decal and ship's name and origin are included on the decal sheet that comes with the kit. It was a fun build and a slight detour from my usual wartime subject matter.

Nice and crisp and clean, that's for sure. If neatness counts, this one is an A+. I like your representation of the water, too. It's totally adequate for display purposes, and makes the model the center of attention.
