Russ, Sean, & Jan, I appreciate your comments - after a bit of a slump, this project is getting fun again!
The sampan at the stern is next. Chinese small boats were squarish, flat bottomed craft apparently intended for calm inland waterways and harbors. This 1976 image from Hong Kong shows a typical sampan of the type carried aboard larger junks:
Pyro’s version, molded as a single piece, is a reasonable but simplified representation. It received the same tan acrylic and Raw Umber oil stain as the hull.
Mounted aboard, the little sampan was busied up with a pole, some tan thread ropes, and a random piece of fabric made from a white glue-soaked bit of facial tissue painted Tamiya Field Grey.
Gotta love the atmosphere of these old Pyro kits!
