1:76 TURNTABLE FERRY FOR INTER ISLAND SERVICESSKU 20S206
This 1:76 scale model captures the essence of a small inter-island ferry boat, featuring a turntable road deck, characteristic of the types once seen navigating around Scotland. It is just one more from my extensive range of 1:76 scale resin cast pieces that are designed to help you create all sorts of interesting scenes on your model railway. Whether for harbours, canals, rivers or quay sides you are sure to find lots of unique pieces in this collection to help you with your project. As a keen railway modeller myself, I have tried to make the majority of the models requiring no assembly. Some do, but I have then tried to keep the parts to as few pieces as possible. All are supplied unpainted giving you the opportunity to personalise it with a paint scheme that fits your own layouts era. The final look is up to you.

The ‘IN ACTION’ images of this model are included here in order to give you some ideas for setting the scene on your own model railway or wargaming table. Many of the other items in the photographs are also produced by me and are available here from this site. The majority of the painting and detailing work was done using mainly acrylic paints due to their fast drying time. The process is to wash the resin model in warm soapy water to remove any traces of the silicone mould release agent. This will aid good paint adhesion. Next I recommend a primer, but I don’t bother unless the model will be subject to a lot of handling. After applying the main colours I then use a dark wash to increase the contrast and once dry a quick ‘dry brush’ with a lighter shade to pick up the raised details. Finally a spray or brush matt varnish for protection."- Stuart
