New fishing boat
« on: August 01, 2016, 07:03:56 PM »

I have only built one fishing boat during my years of building models. But I have decide to build a second one. I have had this kit some 20 years and the boss keeps asking when are you to finish it so here goes.

A note of caution. I have recently completed the Marie Morgane by the same company. After its first outing it was left on the shelf for a few weeks and when I next came to run it the prop shaft had rusted and was seized solid. It would appear that it was not made from stainless steel!
I have replaced it and everything appears to be OK now.

Thats the wrong base board for plank on frame Stan, thats the one you use for Bread and butter! Seriously though progress looks good and I am sure you will do a great job despite the kit originated pitfalls.

Just done a little more today some of the timber is not very good may have replace some with light ply. The cabin will built from plastic card and the timber decks will be covered in plastic card also. Motor installation will be a little tight also.

Hi Stan, looks like this is going to be quite a sturdy little boat - will you be adding the type of deck clutter you gave to the Lobster boat?

I have a garage set at 1/24 scale ready for this model plus the usual lights and may be a pump to simulate water cooling.

Excellent progress considering your recent efforts with shows etc. That pump is quite a good size isn't it.

Yes I bought this very small pump many years ago at a model show its been sat on the shelf for years. It just goes prove that you may buy something and keep it for years but some day it will come in handy.

HI all managed to do a little more over last week. I have scrapped the wood material for rear derrick and made it from box section plastic. Various items have been modified or built again using plastic sheet the lights on the derrick are from Calder Craft. I hope to  have most of the construction done by the end of this month picking up some items at Blackpool. Final pictures show the very thin copper wire I now use to connect all my lights. Sorry about the clamps in the pictures

Hi Barriew yes it is. I normally cut a piece say 20 foot long double it over fit to my hand drill and twist into a nice rope. This can then cut  to size ends cleaned soldered to your L E D. Finally test all is ok with your L E D tester no need to worry about positive  and negative at this stage. This wire can be bought from Component Shop all my models are wired using this cable when painted it almost vanishes hope this helps.
