1:76 ANCHOR WINCH
1:76 ANCHOR WINCHSKU 20S175
As someone with a fondness for precise scale models, especially when they contribute to the visual depth of a harbour scene, this 1:76 scale anchor winch is a fine example of subtle detail. The dimensions give it a credible presence without overwhelming the scene, and each component is proportionate. I've spent time ensuring the fine features are clear and stand out when I hand-paint them. This kind of care brings something special to a railway harbour layout - it looks like the equipment that's been on the job for years. Its size, Length 20mm Width 31mm Height 12mm, makes it a versatile addition to any scene.
For admirers of the nautical elements within the railway modelling community, a piece like this serves both as a focal point and a testament to the historical vessels that once navigated our coastal waters.
Please note that the model is supplied unpainted.
4mm/1:76 for OO or 20mm. Ideal modeling item for making your own model boat. Dimensions: Length 20mm Width 31mm Height 12mm.

"To achieve the level of detail you see here, I started with a solid primer to ensure a good surface for the paint to adhere to. I used a variety of model paints, starting with the darker tones for the recessed areas before working up to the lighter tones to highlight the edges and create a sense of wear. Finishing touches included a light dry brushing to enhance the texture and a protective matte varnish for longevity." - Stuart
