Hi guys.     as its a Bundesmarine ship if you Google schütze Minensuchboot (http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&tbo=d&rlz=1T4GGHP_en-GBGB453GB454&spell=1&q=sch%C3%BCtze+Minensuchboot&sa=X&ei=XXi0UKakJe-k0AWzmYHoAg&ved=0CC4QvwUoAA) or the link may be live to click on.

Thanks TT1.  Just found these pictures on my camera. This group of pictures show the work involved to mask off the wood deck prior to painting the hull. This operation had to be done 3 times. First time etch all brass parts then primer then top coat.Also pictures show  masking removed on rear section of deck no problems with paint on the wood deck. I hope to do some more on this project but at the moment time is taken up with X mas shoping and other things. Thank you all for comments on this project.

Finally got the pennant number on the stern. I went to my local vehicle sign company they made them and cut them out for me. All I had to do was stick them on. Sounds easy I do not think so.

Sorry guys not the best picture. One more this time the gunnery control station not complete yet.I have been asked about the deck planking on this model eack plank is 3mm wide and 0.5 thick. The gap between eack plank is a razor blade thickness only. Deluxe R/C Modellers glue was used to stick the planks down.

Cheers Stan :-))  still in awe of your skills and the quality of the detail you produce.  Can you post a pic of the ship you displayed at Mobile Marines open day? I think you displayed it at Ellesmere also - the one with that beautiful weathering?   I really think that needs another airing - Gambia Bay is a cracker but the one I've just mentioned deserves a pic or two. ;)  Getting quite good at this modelling aren't you!  {-) {-) {-)

Many thanks Si. I should have new p/c on Sunday with all mod cons fitted. Over the years my models have got bigger. This gave me a real problem with painting and applying the varnish top coat. The solution was very simple. I suspend the model from the beams in the garage using a suitable material to carry the weight of the model being worked on.

Nothings been reported Stan.

It does happen to me sometimes, whenever I decide to put up a picture. More annoying after I've typed a message first.  My trick is to post a couple of Full stops and the picture.

If this works, then I have 20 minutes to 'Modify' the post, which give me the opportunity to add the message.

Hope this helps

Hi guys still  sore but I have managed to do some building today. I have taken some pictures of the bank of resistors that control the bulkhead lights navigation lights and masthead lights. Power supply is from a 7.2 volt pack  feeding via  an Action quad switch .I have used soft yellow LED for all white light these give a very nice yellow light ideal for the time period of my model. I have tried to post all these picture in one post but for some reason it will not hope you enjoy

HI Guys just a quick picture showing how I have made the life raft canister supports. I have no fancy jig to make these only a good selection of pliers fret cutters and a soldering iron. I use a block of balsa wood for pinning down my brass parts prior to soldering. Drawing pins are used to hold down the parts on the wood block cheap but very easy to use. Most of the brass work on my model has been built using this method.

Astounding work Stan. I have looked through all of this topic and have been amazed by the level or attention most if not all parts have received during the build.

You join the gang of people whose work I am observing for inspiration on Mayhem.

HI Guys I have been asked by tug Kenny to take some pictures of the radar drive unit fitted on the mast of Schultz. The unit is very compact see pictures above showing unit fitted to mast. I have also included a sketch showing more details of the unit. Under the final drive you will see a small screw this must not be glued over if you do then the unit will not work. P/m if you need further information.

Post by: Stan on August 07, 2015, 09:23:48 PM
Hi in my last post I did say the glazing would be a problem, well see the following pictures. To glaze the front I had to clamp the bridge unit to my work bench and secure the top of the bridge with twine  which is secured to a screw in the garage joists. You may think this is over the top but doing it this way I can see just how to position the glazing and the glue stays put no runs.

HI everyone I have been asked to post some pictures on how I have made some coiled ropes. I cut a piece of round plastic tube and glued it to a sheet of plastic card. When its dry drill a small hole in the bottom of the tube this will allow the rope to be fitted in to it and hold it secure.

One. Soak the rope in p v a thinned with water.

Two Place the end of the rope in the drilled hole in the base of the tube.

Three Wind the rope around the former using two cocktail sticks. Use the sticks to guide the rope and roll the rope to keep it flat leave to dry overnight. Remove next morning clean up and glue into place or paint if needed.

HI everyone I have not left been doing other things. I have now made the scrambling net and fitted to the model it certainly looks a strange arrangement. These pictures will be the last of this model. It has taken many years to rebuild this model and finally end up with model that looks like its full size counterpart. I would like to thank you all once again for your comments on this build. I hope I have inspired kit builders to see what can be done to transform some kit models. My next model is now under construction more to follow.

Thanks to all. :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-))
Stan.

Lovely work Stan- its a credit to you as a model builder. I've watched your build from very near the beginning and having seen the model for real at Doncaster I am very impressed with your patience. Well done mate. :-))

Last week I was asked to take my model to lakeside for one of our members to take some pictures of my model using a good camera .If you are attending the model show this weekend at Doncaster  I hope to have the model  on our club stand. Pictures by kind permission of Mr Simpson.

HI I have just found these pictures today. Its a sad end to what I think was a good looking ship but she managed 30 years service  so not a bad record really.

Well after numerous years of rebuilding I am pleased to say the model took first place in kit class at the Model Boat Convention. Picture to follow showing a very nice cut glass award.

Hi all final pictures of 1062 showing the model with the rose bowl trophy for kit class model during my visit to the Model Boat Convention. Once again many thanks to you all for your comments over the years it makes it all worth while and taking the kit class was the icing on the cake. Sadly no more warships for a while building a fishing boat. See working vessels.

Well I hope you get many hours of sailing fun with them. I know you are a builder at heart, but they should be such fun on the water  :-))
