HMS Victory, Airfix 1/100, the boats

Started looking at the ships boats

The instructions suggest an all white paint with a green stripe paint scheme.

The three boats were cut off the sprues and the insides painted white with a brush prior to assembly leaving the edges to be glued unpainted.
The halves of the boats need some encouragement to join together, in particular the Dingy.

Then some sanding of the joint lines, 
The rudders were added and the boats put away for painting and super detailing at a later stage.
