MSW crew-mate Peter Fulgoney (PeterF) shares a fine gallery of images of his fabulous rendition (and his "MSW Camouflaged Ships Campaign" entry) of the British Tramp Steamer, SS Drumgeith, in this "On Display" feature!

Peter,
Lovely build of a good looking ship. Looking forward to seeing this 'in the flesh' at Hornchurch

The deck fitting details are a wonder as is the murkiness of the sea--it could just as easily be a photo of the North Atlantic or North Sea!

Nice job! I like those dazzle camo schemes, even if they're tough to paint!

Cheers, Lads, and a couple of points I've seen myself -

First, the rig needs to be tidied up. It 's not until you can look at hi-def pictures that you can study the detail - in more detail - many missable mistakes tend to show themselves through this media.

Also when you're able to take a picture outside, which I have done here, the sky is refelcted in the gloss of the fake sea which gives it a realistic aura.

Thanks for your comments, and yes, I will bring Drummers along to Hornchurch if I'm allowed to attend.

Hi Peter,

Very nice build. The setting looks and feels like it is real.

Your right about Harry's kits. Received the Shinano Maru today all I can say is WOW!!!!

Cheers for the comment, Chris, and great to hear you're a BFM fan as well - Harry has been working on that kit for about 4 years. I shall order one for myself.
