    On my layout I wanted a dockside scene with a container terminal and found this ship on the website.
    Being new to railway modelling this was a project I had never attempted before, but I took my time (about 4 months of evenings and wet days) to build the boat.
    There are 30 pages of individual pieces to print and 227 instructions on building the model.
    Before printing you can enter your own ship name and home port.
    Many pieces needed glueing to medium or thick card and I used cereal boxes for this, doubling up for the thicker pieces.
    I'm really pleased with my end result.

    Very nice Malc, if you are thinking of using Scalescenes Dockwall kit, try printing on to textured water colour paper (check the texture on both sides, sometimes its different). This gives some relief to the walls. Also pressing a thin blunt rule or blade into the stone courses (only needs to be a few places) helps accentuate the texteure.
