Bon Retour a French fishing vessel

Postby wim500 » Sun May 20, 2012 12:51 am

My second ship was the Bon Retour, a Artesania kit again, scale 1:25.
A French fishing vessel used in the region of Brest.

Indeed Bon Retour means Welcome back :D .

I noticed the old figures/letters are on both sides of the ship, they were not nice (glimmering) so I replaced them for other ones.

Very nice vessel Wim, it looks great.
Now I know what they mean when we arrived at France at the Hollidays....
I always thought that they want us to leave! :D

Thanks for looking in :D

@Anja
The Bon Retour is indeed on my website too and in a short time I will show my other 2 finished ships here too.

@Sjors
It depends on how you behaved yourself in France :lol: ;-) .
I have been in the Brest region several times and I love that region really a lot.

@Gary
Thank you very much.
Regards,
Wim

In great delay I have seen this really nice work. Excellent reproduction of the vessel, work clean and pleasantly complete. I'm waiting for your next works!
