Dont think water is dense enough, 5L is 5 kg. Far to bulky. what about lead shot in bags, moulded into place with a mix of epoxy. They would fit into specific places in the hull and be removable. Not as easy as pumping water from the lake, but more effective.


I agree. I got my lead shot from this Swiss store: http://www.plomben.ch/bleiteile.htm
You will need less than 1/10th the volume if you're gonna use lead instead of water.
Or, even better, use gold bullions instead (as I always suggest) and you'll need only about 1/20th the volume of water  ok2

Thank you all for all the informations .... I will order my lead bullions (cheaper than lead shots) from the swiss online store! Thanks a lot to Tafelspitz for this very useful link.

The only problem with bullions is fitting them between the hull ribs, unless you made boxes in the hull to hold them

Put a mini paddling pool below your balcony heat the lead up on said balcony and then pour it into the pool from a great height thus creating your own shot! Fill the pool with water obviously  :embarrassed:

I will make boxes to hold the bullions in place ... "if" I build another big model after the M-J I can reuse them. Lead shot in bags do not stay in place as well in place in the hull as bullions in boxes.
My wife is asking how we will move the finished model around. Getting it into the VW T6 van and into water has to be planned well.

Moving and handeling a big boat needs thought. I use a folding garden truck, very easy to move and loads of space for the gear that goes with the model. Ballast, Batteries etc.

I'd suggest one of these (that would also be an amazing building project): https://youtu.be/tvqAqhZ-ijg

You could make a Free Flooding compartment low in the hull to let the water in and save on Ballast.

I was thinking about it as I saw such a compartment in a hull of a fishtrawler in Britanny ... bit I think it will create problem if its not 150% watertight.  %)
Very nice video of the big crane .... but a model for my boat would need another parking lot and a trailer to get it to the model show ....  ok2
I forgot to write that the hull is very stable in the water. It floats nicely and stable with or without ballast.

Yesterday I made a template for the deck ....




... and today of the rest .... as you can see I wasn't happy with the shape of the bow .... so I will change it like you say in the pictures.

I was not happy with y wooden figurine as it was too big! Its height is 210mm instead of 175-180mm (=1.75-1.80m height in 1:1 scale).The one I use now was printed out from the internet and its height is 180mm. Loos much better for me ....

Really coming along well Danielle, although you are working on a Brittany style boat, we still have a lot of fishing boats here in Dieppe (Normandy) and quite a few on the slips at any one time, if you would like me to take photos of any part of the fishing fleet both above and below the water, or any any other details I can help you with please let me know I will be glad to help.

Thanks a lot for your offer. I took a lot of pictures but I am sure I will need some pictures in future because there is always one or the missing for detailing the model!

One of the rules of model making is that after you have completed a project, more reference turns up often of that which you wanted to make but could not see  %)

Exactly!!!! Happened with the FV Cornelia Marie ... one week after its first outing Discovery Channel published 360 views of all parts of the boat. Wheelhouse, deck, forcastle, pantry, engine room ... you name they have a 360 view .... I was really not shure if I should rebuild some part of the CM. In the end I left her as she was ....

It is important to understand that the detail of a model can be a snapshot frozen in time......all of the detail is as was during that moment O0

Many warship models are listed by name & date ......
