I'm having great fun mucking about with this kit. Could be something to do with the gin mind you but who cares? I've been chucking filler at it as well as some plastic card and making a few alterations to the kit parts. The barrel is a scrap piece of aluminium tube which I prefer to the kit part. I will shorten it slightly for a better toon look.
I'll add some texture to the hull later I think with Mr surfacer and some weld lines too just for the crack!
