This scale model of a 1:76 canal narrowboat reflects the charming details and features found in the full-scale versions that navigate the waterways.

"To recreate the finish on this canal narrowboat, I started with a solid coat of primer to ensure the subsequent layers of paint would adhere well. I then applied a base coat, choosing a traditional dark hue to reflect the historical use of the boats. Building up the layers, I added details such as the trims and rivets carefully with a fine brush, ensuring each line was as straight as possible to give it a realistic look. For the cabin area, I opted for a contrasting colour to make it stand out and then proceeded to hand-paint the name 'J.B. Fraser' in a font that is period-appropriate. A final semi-gloss varnish was applied to protect the paint job and give it a slight sheen, similar to what you might see on the actual waterways." - Stuart
