Title: Orion mouldings Stevns Arctic Build
Post by: Taranis on December 12, 2018, 10:43:32 PM
This build is only possible for me due to the meticulous hard work of member Chipchase  :-))  having created the plug of the hull. Expertly produced thereon by Anth at Orion.

My build plans will arrive this week and I've delayed receipt of the hull until next week. Expect the usual volume of photographs as I go and another long ride

Cheers club mate  :-))
I may finally stop working but just now itís a welcome boost to hobby fund  :-)
I donít really have the space or the skill of Brian so Iím relying heavily on Hong Kong for drives
Failing that I may have to bite the bullet and buy the ones at silly money  %%

For your money you get absolute quality plans too on very good paper 1:1 of the actual model. Very happy  :-))
My hull should arrive in the next few days as requested  :-)

Good Dave, I hope to deliver  :-))
I'm thinking she has a lot going on up top so already thinking I need to keep that light. Brian likely has a good idea of weight in the water but I'm guessing in excess of 50lb.
Loads of room in the hull and I'm toying with using KMB jet drives to power bow thrusters, mounted over the water intakes on the hull sides. I'll be following Brian very closely and hope to contribute in part to the build

Post by: coch y bonddu on December 16, 2018, 06:04:29 PM
Personally I would be building topside either out of the thinnest ply available....0.8mm or the equivellent in Plastic card,just to keep the topside weight down

Due to my lack of space time and skill that Brian has in abundance I cannot make my own Z drives.
So I am relying on these guys in HK to come up with the goods at a more modest price than Ä560 each  <:(

Hi Jason. I looked at that option again last night but I feel I'd be doing nothing new to further my experience but more importantly I don't think it would do justice to Brian's efforts being so accurate.
As for the Potgarth at the time I bought it I did not realise I could have used Graupner Schottels or that they existed as MMM push the prop shaft option right from the off with their steerable korts.
Stevns is completely scratch with no templates to mislead so I will use all I have learned to produce a good likeness.

The hull is designed for steerable nozzles, if anyone  manages to fit fixed shafts and nozzles the shaft would have to be at quite an angle

Title: Re: Orion mouldings Stevns Arctic Build
Post by: chipchase on December 18, 2018, 01:32:12 PM
The plug was built to look something like the Stevns Arctic or Ocean, as you know when I managed to get drawings of the vessel I could not get hull line drawings so the plug was built to my spec and not identical to the hull of the full-sized vessel. The drawings that I passed onto Anth when he decided to market the hull are GA drawings.  So, a bit of creative modelling will have to be done on the hull for it to look something like the Stevns Arctic or Stevns Ocean.

Stevns is a difficult shape but achievable

Post by: chipchase on December 20, 2018, 07:59:35 PM
I have marked the hull in the photo Andy just to give you a rough idea were I think would be the best location, just my thoughts.
Title: Re: Orion mouldings Stevns Arctic Build
Post by: Taranis on December 20, 2018, 08:00:22 PM
Because it is such a large hull its very easy for the GRP to twist as mine is currently. Twisting it the opposite way corrects this but important to note whilst building that this must be constantly monitored while fitting decks etc. which will then keep bow and stern level with each other.
The stand will be made to ensure the hull stays level across the beam with sand or lead bags to help keep it correct

Completely agree Brian thanks but I think I'll have to limit it to the 32mm
I'll use some pipe initially and see if It can go to 40 before ordering

Only to ask ...you're happy to do bank transfer to them?  I really really like their stuff but my bank manager would just go nuts if I started doing unsecure payments like that again.  It's 2018 not 1998.  We have internet and banking security rammed down our throats at every chance, I cannot believe such an out-dated, unprotected payment method would be even considered these days?  Unfortunately I've been scammed a few times in the past -I am not so niave now to consider making the same mistakes again.

How did you even order from them anyway?  I'm not the only person who reports registration with them and recieving an activation code -which isn't recognised to enable the account, and then they don't answer to any E-Mails about accounts or products?

Many German sellers only take bank transfers by IBAN
So far Iíve not had a problem and this morning the transfer is advised as complete by Revolut.
With hobby lobby I had no problem creating an account and I put the item in my basket. When going to checkout it details payment terms and then when you continue it confirms the order with full details again for payment including shipping and generated an order reference number. Once they receive funds the order is processed to despatch


Another German seller Knupfer even posted before I paid as a recognised previous buyer




Edit having just logged into hobby lobby this morning it shows all my details my order as pending the reference number and the payment total.

Hello


What a pity the Stevns Arctic hull shape is here far from reality specially for the bow with strange chines - a friend of me was interested with this tug and there is no way to improve easily this shape.

Yes Brian is aware of this but for me that is all below the waterline and not a clincher.
Very good illustration thank you  :-))


I feel the GRP is very thick and the lines could be softened and changed with some internal reinforcement


The plug was built to look something like the Stevns Arctic or Ocean, as you know when I managed to get drawings of the vessel I could not get hull line drawings so the plug was built to my spec and not identical to the hull of the full-sized vessel. The drawings that I passed onto Anth when he decided to market the hull are GA drawings.  So, a bit of creative modelling will have to be done on the hull for it to look something like the Stevns Arctic or Stevns Ocean.


I should point out that the Portgarth hull is very very remotely like the actual Portgarth but still turned out ok

I'm following the subject about your Portgarth and I'm impressed with the quality of your work above the deck  - I understand better knowing that you do not pay too much attention below the waterline

Now I'm waiting the beginning of the superstructures construction for the Stevns Arctic.

Title: Re: Orion mouldings Stevns Arctic Build
Post by: Taranis on December 21, 2018, 05:46:13 PM
I do pay attention below the waterline but there is a limit to what can be achieved when there are inaccuracies . At least the Orion Stevns is solid and symmetrical and as a last resort prepared to pay over £1000 for Z drives  %%  There will be a lot of new/alternative ways of doing things along the way. I like to get my models seaworthy well ahead of the superstructure. Once my decks are fitted with optimum access and the outlines of the superstructure created then the deckhouse level can begin




P.S. Thank you  :-))

Regarding my order from Hobby Lobby
I can now vouch for their authenticity despite having zero communication from them.
I paid on December 21st by bank transfer and given the Xmas period Iím happy that it arrived today by DHL  :-))


My only concern is that the pipe may be a little too short but I will overcome that.


EDIT after full inspection I find that the specified measurements are incorrect.
The overall diameter is 38mm and the propellers are just barely 30mm but can not be confused with the 32mm version.
I have just ordered a 38mm I.D. clear acrylic pipe 44mm O.D. this will allow me to fit this as a sliding fit and thus be removable if replacement is required. The pipe wall thickness will allow some flaring at the hull skin

Points to note about this drive unit.
There are no specifics provided or recommended of max RPM and no details of how it is assembled and sealed.
IMHO it seems far better quality than any of the Raboesch offerings for very little more money. In fact raboesch don't go up to this size.
I see now retrospectively that the brass tube rather than plastic goes up to larger diameters but I think I am content with my choice.


I'm thinking brushless motor for this


The picture above! the brass collar on the drive shaft has no grub screw so must be a machine press fit and it has a stainless thrust washer. The propellers both have 2 grub screws as well as the domed nut


The acrylic pipe I have ordered will be scalloped away like a rifle breach load to accept the plastic pipes rather than cut into port and starboard parts. This will ensure perfect alignment and be more solid.

The thruster looks good for the price I will be  making mine along the same lines, I don't think it will be any cheaper to make by the time you add up the cost of props bearings bevel gears brass, and prop drive shaft. This is the part of modelling that I enjoy.

The bowthruster
Crossflow rudder split tunnel plastic


Heart of our cross-flow rowing with split tunneling is the transmission unit, which is manufactured exclusively as all-metal design. PVC plastic pipes are on both sides pushed onto the massive gear unit. These are sealed by the modeler with the gear unit. The advantage of this embodiment is divided as this is easily adapt to the fuselage geometry in the good workability of the plastic pipes. The following features speak for themselves:
- Gear housing made of brass, glass bead blasted.
- Bevel gears made of metal.
- drive shaft of V2A, 2-bronze bearings.
- output shaft of V2A, bronze mounted.
- Propeller cast brass with high efficiency.
- lifetime lubrication of the gear unit.
Our cross-flow design rowing is a rock-solid construction that clearly stands out from the products on the market in terms of durability and performance guarantee. A once built into the hull of a valuable ship model crossflow rudder must not fail! Pay attention when buying one on a high quality product on which you enjoy throughout the life of your ship model.
Jedamski CROSS POWER STEERING will not let you down!

Continued.
Converted to 12 mm ply and contoured to hull skin.
Hull now sits level and square bow to stern. I have made the sides overlap my island bench so it stays put.

This is the idea of the stand that becomes a transporter. The Stevns cart will eventually be covered in finishing resin and glass cloth so it can be wheeled down a launching ramp where possible

I more recently realised it can carry other boats too

Having perused the drawing I have marked the bow thruster approximately
The Bowthruster unit I purchased scales off nicely with 30mm propellers.

Just arrived from hosemaster. I can bend it the other way to conceal the lines

Also arrived today.
I have loads of Makita LXT tools so 9 batteries kicking about.
This clever fella dreamt up these stealth mounts that can also be worn on a work belt.

Looking ahead to the big bow fender fitting


My first course is deck fitting (paxolin) I am doing it different this time. A very successful Portgarth project largely due to Chipchase advice but this time slightly different.
Rather than line the bulwarks with styrene first then fit the deck, I will this time fit the paxolin deck and line the bulwark with styrene which will conceal the deck to hull joints.
Looking at real photos of the Stevns there are holes spaced around the main fender location that will accommodate screws from inboard into the 35mm hose. Hex head screws may be more realistic.

Bow thruster drive shaft is 3mm
Using this as a guide to potentially suitable motors I've ordered this for trials or stock
