I've started on my next mini-project; 33 1/3,000 scale cargo ships and and tankers

'Some' months ago Aksu very kindly printed these for me and a similar number for the Pierre the Shy

So far I've removed them from the support base, very straight forward Smiley

Cleaned up a few of the funnels that didn't print entirely cleanly Smiley

There were 4 ships that need their funnels replacing as they didn't print completely Sad
But I have some suitable plastic rod Smiley

I've drilled holes for masts for the ships Smiley
I've used a number of different derrick layouts which added to the multiple sizes that Aksu printed the ships in will give plenty of variety Smiley Smiley

I don't know what the hell this "logistics" is that Marshall is always talking about, but I want some of it.

'Cause we got a little convoy
Rockin' through the night.
Yeah, we got a little convoy,
Ain't she a beautiful sight?
Come on and join our convoy
Ain't nothin' gonna get in our way.
We gonna roll this truckin' convoy
'Cross the U-S-A.
Convoy!

Just noticed that I bought the 250ml 'test pot' of house paint I use for these bases in December 2012 Shocked
The paint is still completely usable, didn't even need any water added Smiley
