But the  model......and the lake..... well our pond..  >:-o  has been filled in, so yours is a little better  O0

Thanks John and Phil!
Well you know the expression, "looks good from a far but far from good"! {-)
Anyway, I appreciate your kind words. I really enjoyed building this one and already thinking of building another one on the same principle.
All the best!

It is an odd shape so makes sense to have a spare just in case.

Absolutely Ian, full scale ferries have broken or even lost their visors so it could happen to me as well.

Ok, this could work. At least I have something to work from, just need to get some filler.

I have modified my linkspan to accommodate the new ferry and tested it today. I have also shortened it to fit in the box I transport this ferry in. I can still use it for the much longer other ferry by adding a section and reposition the fenders. I couldn't secure the dock to the shore so I couldn't manoeuvre into it but I could take some pictures.
All the best

Thank you John and Derek!
Yes the dock could definitely need some detailing!  {-)
I have been more focused on function. %%

Work on the new bow visor is progressing!  Next is painting deck and waterline and then the decals. Eventually I'll try and fix the original wooden visor too.

Some slight modifications has been carried out. When the boat was built I realised that I had made a mistake, and as the ambitions grew during the build I decided to correct this. The plans I had was for the sister ship Gotland, she didn't have the aft bridge so I had to guess a bit. What I never knew was that the sister had a bigger sun deck covering almost all of the poop deck while my object had a much shorter sun deck. This affected the overall appearance so I decided to correct it. I' m more than happy that I did this. Also the new visor is almost done, needs a cote of clear lacuer.
All the best!

The first photo looks like it a seventies photo of a real ferry! I saw your linkspan and reckon it a must for any model ferry builder/owner  :-))


Where did you get the brackets from Hama? They look good.

Thanks Ian!
Yes a linkspan definitely makes sailing the ferry a lot more fun!
I have just made a addition to my linkspan so I can secure it to the lakeside. I'll take some pictures of it later.
The brackets is something I found at home, they are part of hinges for kitchen cabinets.
All the best!

This is how the linkspan look now. The end of the foldable section can be secured to the shore with a weight  ( stone ) or a clamp depending on situation. It also have a add on section if needed. It fits in my box together with the ferry when it' s folded in.
