Title: Latest build Svitzser Maltby
Post by: chipchase on March 10, 2012, 10:03:34 PM
Hi all here are some photos of my latest build the Svitzer Maltby. I started building her eight months ago and I think she will take about another six months to complete.

Hi Brian.

She looks the part but you have not got six months man, we've got a regatta at Balne Moor and your not bringing half a tug this time.

All the best

Hello

Is that scratch built or from a kit?
Title: Re: Latest build Svitzser Maltby
Post by: chipchase on March 12, 2012, 10:00:42 AM
Hi Michael she is scratch built, but you can now buy a hull and plan from Tyne Models.
Title: Re: Latest build Svitzser Maltby
Post by: poll on March 12, 2012, 06:20:07 PM
Hi Michael.

You can get the Hull & plan from Tyne Models but the down side for you, you have to test it at Balne Moor pond in the  UK.   lol
Not a bad trip out, just going to test the tug love, see you in four to five weeks time. Go on Michael get one.

Another excellent model with such a clean crisp finish, your a bit good at these tugs aren't you Brian  O0
 
          Still haven't plucked up the courage to try my Ironsider yet - will one day.

Cheers Tony, are you referring to the bulwark top?
Title: Re: Latest build Svitzser Maltby
Post by: tt1 on April 03, 2012, 02:22:59 PM
The whole thing really Brian  :embarrassed: haven't built anything without instructions yet and have really only ever scratch built replacement parts with a pattern to work from, but I do have the drawings and of course your photos on the cd so am definitely going to give it a go especially after seeing yours - can I trust the drawings implicitly for all the dimensions?

                 Please keep posting the pics, kind regards, Tony. :-))

Hi Tony, itís been a while since I built the Ironsider but if my memory serves me well I had no probs with the plan dimensions. You will not have any problem with the Ironsider just take your time and enjoy the build.  :-)) :-)) Just send me a PM if you have any queries.

Regards Brian

Havenít had a lot of time over the last fortnight for the models but managed to complete the funnel logo and managed to get a start building the bow winch. Still quite a lot to do before the winch is complete. I will post photos as I progress.

A bit more detail done on the bow winch. Still quite a bit to do before the winch is bolted to the deck.

Managed to get some photos of the Maltby at the weekend (remembered the camera) still got a lot to do before she is finished, hoping to get a start on the stern winch this week.
Title: Re: Latest build Svitzser Maltby
Post by: chipchase on July 09, 2012, 10:36:19 PM
A bit more done to the Maltby, capstan finished and the winch just about complete only the tow hook to make.
Title: Re: Latest build Svitzser Maltby
Post by: chipchase on July 10, 2012, 09:05:23 PM
Had good day today no interruptions, managed to get the tow hook made and fitted.
Title: Re: Latest build Svitzser Maltby
Post by: derekwarner on July 10, 2012, 09:30:19 PM
Thats a brilliantly constructed hook assembly CC....but how does it work?......hydraulic force to close the bite & loss of hydraulic pressure = spring return to open?  :o.....

We have a Svitzser here in the Port of Kembla......I will try & get an image of the stern hook.......Derek

Although an absolutely superb model it cannot be included within the Masterclass Section as there is just not enough of the build shown.

Thank you all for your kind comments regarding the Maltby build  :-)) , as Bob has said any model that goes into the Master class Section must have an in depth build log from start to finish.
