Title: Model Slipway's Maggie M Build
Post by: DickyD on December 30, 2009, 04:54:49 PM
Today I got my new shelves fitted in my workroom and have now had a good tidy up.

By the time I had done all this I just had time to open up the Maggie M box and see what goodies were inside.

There was a rather excellent hull which is up to Model Slipways extremely high standard.

There was also a comprehensive instruction book and drawings, loads of nice clean white metal fittings and sheets of CNC cut and printed styrene.

Theres an MFA geared motor with coupling and brass prop, prop shaft and all the sundry brass wire, dowel etc.

Hi Richard,
I am looking forward to your postings, because I am also toying with the idea (Maggie M) as my next project.

Happy new Year to you and yours

This one may take a little while to do as my breathing is not to good at the moment.

But I'll give it a go. :-))

Sorry to hear that your health isn't too good at the moment Richard, we'll wait a day or two for you to finish Maggie M! You take your time, when you're ready, don't overdo things. Hope the New Year is good for you and your wife.

Best wishes,

Danny

Not wishing to high-jack the the thread, but it might help Richard later...
The side hatch is shown with a hydraulic ram to open it, but it is also conected to the fixed boom, and winch, now as shown in the plans the ram goes through the rails and I don't see how it could lift the hatch.

The central hatch seems to have no way of opening it, hook or ram, just man power?

That hook would be for lifting the cod end full of fish aboard the real vessel and not the hatch the hydraulic ram would lift the hatch open as in real fishing vessels  yet have known a few to have to manually  lift the hatch to the fish hopper and have done so personally the winch that you mention is a boom swinger/landing winch  hope that clears things up a bit

SKYE WULLIE

ANY questions on the workings of a fishing vessel myself and Davie T are always a pm awayto try and explain things have worked aboard trawlers we know a wee bit about them  :-))

Anyway back to the build.
Today I cut the openings in the hull for the steps.
I then fitted the prop shaft, kort nozzle and becker rudder.
Finally tried the brass prop and it fits without touching the kort nozzle. Phew !

looking good so far!
i am also building this kit but i packed it away until christmas and new year passed so i will be starting building it again,
I started building mine in the wrong order because i was scared i would mess up with the rudder, kort nozzle etc. So when i get the kit back out again i will start from the beginning again.
I was on the Model Slipway site today and i noticed the maggie m wasn't on, have they stopped making this kit?

I look forward to your future posts cheers

Post by: DavieTait on January 03, 2010, 11:18:25 AM
Not stopped just reworking the kit I think. Putting all of the plastic sheet components into a CAD program so they can be laser cut to order instead of holding onto a large stock of pre-printed sheets as far as I know. Still got my kit in the cupboard , was going to build it as either the Andromeda II INS or Ardent II INS seine net versions but not made a start yet
Title: Re: Model Slipway's Maggie M Build
Post by: darthu812 on January 03, 2010, 03:50:36 PM
Oh yea that would be a better way of producing the sheets, free up some storage space.
Im building mine as the Defiant LK.371 so there is quite a few alterations to be made, hopefully will get it finished eventually just need to find the spare time to work on it!
Title: Re: Model Slipway's Maggie M Build
Post by: DickyD on January 04, 2010, 06:34:14 PM
Today I did the side steps in the hull and the servo for the rudder, doesn't seem much but took most of the day.

Thanks Ken

Today I made up the deck supporting beams and fitted them and the 3mm strip round the inside of the hull to support the deck.

If you are building one of these kits you should note that the deck will give you the finished width of the hull.

I had to fit the deck beams by widening the hull by approximately 20mm.

Hi Richard. Seeing as we are both building the same boat, and you being the experienced modeller  O0, This is only my second kit so I am hanging fire now until you get in front. (just glued my forward deck in place)
So don't miss anything out  and then my build will go as smoothly as yours  :-))

You seem to be doing alright so far Alan.

I'm not doing this boat as fast as the others as I am having a bit of trouble with my breathing at the moment. This limits the time I can spend sniffing glue and epoxy at the moment. :embarrassed:

Haven't done to much as I have been waiting for my epoxy to be delivered.

While I was waiting I have assembled the white metal winches.

(http://i124.photobucket.com/albums/p8/DickyD_photos/MaggieM/DSCF0189.jpg)

Any way the epoxy turned up this afternoon so I have now fixed the deck.

I shall leave this taped down till tomorrow to give it time to set up.

The decks having set up I have now done the coamings and have started on the rear hatch.

The drawings and instructions were a little vague concerning these so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

The next job will be the fish pools.

Post by: DickyD on January 15, 2010, 05:51:23 PM
Thanks for the comments chaps and Ken methinks you are taking the xxss  >>:-( {-)

Anyway, back to the build.

Today I made and fixed the fish pools and the rear hatch.

Getting the brass wire the right shape and size for the tops was a bit of a workup and I could have done with a bit more information, ie. measurements and which bit of plastic fits inside or on the ends of the other bits.

Great Richard  :-)) the drawings are starting to make sense to me now and I will be doing those bits in the next couple of days. Did a little today, cut some bits out including those 40 little triangular pieces, spent more time looking for them on the workshop floor than fitting them   :}
Can I ask what you used to glue the brass wire with.

Hello,

Good job!  :-))

I discovered a little with this kit, the manufacturer model slipway, and I must say that the contents of the box is very attractive, and the work done behind is very good.
If you continue like this, you will eventually convert meto the kit!  :D

After having nearly three weeks off through illness I am now feeling well enough to do a bit more.

First off I sprayed the anti fouling on the hull as once I start building off the deck it is going to be awkward to turn the boat upside down.

I then fixed the rear bulwarks and the port and starboard rear bulwarks.

The next thing I fixed was the vents on both port and starboard side.

The instructions aren't too bad but you do have to keep searching different pages to get all the details for the same item.

In the instruction book you have the main instructions, an exploded picture of the operation, a sheet showing where the plastic parts are, a section giving all the part numbers and where they are, a section showing what each white metal fitting looks like and two not to scale drawings. You invariably have to refer to all of these for each thing you make. I'm sure the Al Khubar and the Sentinel instructions were simpler to understand. {:-{

Anyway back to building now.

Sorry to hear you haven't been well Richard, hope you are fully recovered now.

I know what you mean about the instructions, did think about taking the book to bits, but now I put clips on all the relevent pages.
Cheated while waiting for your posts  :-) and painted the whole hull apart from the water line and the yellow line, Ill have to be careful that I don't damage the paintwork now.
Plenty for me to go at now  :-))

Today I started on the deck house, although the instructions number all the parts they are very confusing when you have to keep turning pages in the book to try and figure what goes where. I hope that the instructions are made clearer when this kit is revamped.

Tomorrow I start on the deck house furniture.

Today I have been making the wheel house furniture.
This is quite time consuming. Its a pity the Plastic Weld mixes with the ink on the plastic, always looks dirty.
I still have some more to make and I appear to have some white metal fittings missing according to the drawing, so will have to ring MSW on Monday.

Right I've done a bit more.

I've painted the green on the hull.

Painted and fixed the wheel house furniture.

Fixed the wheel house glazing and painted the inside of the wheel house.

Made and fixed the trawl winch base, tool boxes, gas locker and the port ventilator.

Made and fitted centre front hatch.

Made the wheel house roof.

This week I have been making up hatches and bits and pieces.

I have also started on the mast which is a bit of a work up but I think I have broken the back of it now.

It will be good when Laurie gets all the drawings and instructions revamped.

Since my last posting I have been doing bits and pieces, such as cleaning up the white metal fittings, though they dont need much doing to them there are a lot of them.

I've finished of the mast and booms except for the ropes that I will put on after painting.

Then there was the handrails oohhhhhhhhhhhh yes the handrails. I have decided that Model Slipways advice about doing them in short lengths was right, this is a lot less difficult. You will notice I didn't say easy.

If you are doing this kit then dont be fooled into believing that the three horizontal rails are all the same length, they are not as the stanchions lean in slightly, this is why it is easier to work in short lengths, especially around the starboard hatch.

Then there are the railings around the centre hatch. These are two rail on three sides and soldered, why does everyone else make it look so easy ?

A small point, if you look at the actual Maggie M. photos you will see that where the hydraulic ram is for the side hatch there is no bottom rail in that section. Will have to cut mine out tomorrow. >>:-(

On the whole not getting on to badly at the moment.

The arms for the crew members that were missing have been replaced by MS so the crew are no longer armless, now they are dangerous.
I'll go now.

Have finished the handrails and have carried on with the white metal fitting that I am fixing before spraying.

I have made all the winches etc which I will paint before fitting.

I am just about ready for some more spraying now, which will take a bit of time because of the fumes.

First is Jackie of Modelslipway who has helped me out on a few occasions when there was something I could not figure out and has always been cheerful and very efficient in solving my problems, a thoroughly nice lady.

Then there is our ACTion man, Dave who's breakfast I disturbed yesterday by ringing him to place an order at 8.58am. Sorry Dave thought it was later than it was, some of us get up at 6.00am you know. Anyway even though I was a pain the goods I ordered still arrived this morning, thanks.

Anyway today has been a painting day apart from making the trawl boards, so I am suffering with the breathing a bit.
I now have most of the boat under one coat of paint and parts of it are finished.

I still have a lot of fittings to fix and a lot of detail painting to do.

When I started this kit I thought it would not take long, wrong, there is more to this one than meets the eye.

Not a lot to add really.

I have been painting and fixing fittings, which seem to be taking for ever.

Not to worry though I have nothing else to do.

Looking very good, are you going to 'weather' her? Fancy one of these after finishing Our Lass 2, shame they're not on same scale. A 1:24 Maggie M would be impressive on water but maybe bit heavy to carry, would dread to think how much ballast she'd need!! Dave. :-))

Hello Richard

You can be sure that I’m very glad to be on your forum.
Before going more in my erection, I need you about the RC instalation.
Which kind of battery will you use ? 6 or 12 V ? Where will you install it ?
I would like install more functions, like floodlights, navigation lights and more if possible. Will you make the same things ?
Have you un drawing or some pictures ?
Thank’ for your help.
Congratulations
Patrick

Hi Patrick I am going to use a 6V  14aH SLA battery mounted across the boat in front of the motor.

My electrics which I haven't done yet will be under the rear hatch.

I am not having working lights as I shan't be sailing at night.

By the way you might want to change the word "erection" to "construction".

When I have done the electrics I will take a photo of them.

Thank's for your help, Richard, and thank's for "construction".
What's the size of your battery. I have a 12 v. The size is 64 mmx150 mmx100mm, and I think that it is too big. What is your opinion ?
Title: Re: Model Slipway's Maggie M Build
Post by: DickyD on March 06, 2010, 10:57:21 AM
My battery size Patrick is 151 x 51 x 94mm.

I've done some more detailing and painting today.

I also stuck on the decals.

Next jobs are the rigging and the electrical work.

Dont think I'm up to Masterclass standard Martin, but thanks anyway.

Have now done the rigging (I think) though where it all went was not at all clear on the pictures or drawing.

Bit more detailing done.

Am waiting for someone to come forward with some info on the trawl boards so I can complete them.

http://www.modelboatmayhem.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=22764.msg224153;topicseen#msg224153

Starting on the electrics tomorrow so anyone thinking of phoning ACTion can forget it as Dave will have his phone off the hook in case I phone.

you have to take it out of the plastic bag  :embarrassed:

seriously have you thought of investing in one of the airline fed helmets, may be expensive but you are always going to be painting boats and it may help you in the long run.

Today, plenty of sunshine and relatively warm so we had the maiden voyage.

Went well with six pounds of lead ballast some of which needs a bit of adjustment.
