  This is the final result of the winch build. the painting step is next. Too bad all that brass has to be covered up. Now on to finishing off the lights, antenna and mast.

  Thanks very much. Well the bright work is covered in paint right now. I'm going to take a leaf out of your book and add some weathering to it. I's amazing how heavy it is. That should make the old girl roll a bit now.

Absolutely stunning.

Started looking at the beginning of my lunch break and three hours later (Did I just say that) I finished it. Lots to learn from.

A question if you don't mind, at the start, you used some kind of putty on the wood that you described to be similar in texture to icing, are you referring to glazing putty (the one in small tubes at Canadian Tire) and if not which one did you use and where can I get it (Burlington, ON), I'd like to know as I'm rebuilding a tug (Fairplay V) and it needs a lot of smoothing in the original wood as the old owner just brush painted everything without any sort of prior treatment, given that this would be my first tug I need all the help with refinishing.

I'm also waiting for my second tug (Neddy) which is supposed to be in the mail, I intend to take a lot of the lessons learnt and apply them to that build.

Thanks for a truly enjoyable build log,

   Thankyou very much. I'm glad you liked the build. I still have a few more details to finish off. I'll be putting up some more pics as I go. The winch is painted now by the way.
  The "icing" I referred to is available from NAPA and similar suppliers. Its very easy to work with. You mix up as much as you need. It finishes harder than the CTC "spot putty", but still easy to sand. I've used the spot putty for just that, small spots, and it works well there. However, I find the Icing works better overall for large surfaces.
  If you're going to the Kitchener meet in July I'll be there with the Nederland.
  Good luck in your build.

That's great, thanks so much.

I do not know of a Kitchener meet, as I said I'm a newbie. If it is possible, please provide details and I'll do my best to be there.

Thanks again,

 Here's the URL for the Kitchener meet: http://www.metromarine.org/2010ModelExpoFlyer.pdf
  You may also like to come out to our Bobcaygeon meet in July. There are usually a few modelers from down Burlington way that come out.

And I thought that I'm almost alone in here and the nearest Canadian modeler is in BC and anyone else is across the pond, this is great. Now I'm planning to attend for sure.

This is an excellent forum and thank you John,

Thanks,

I guess I should pay more attention to the side band  :embarrassed:

It's also great the amount of ideas shared all over the globe via this forum, it shows a great calibre of the members wherever they are.

Great site.

LOL, thanks very much! Haven't found much call for model makers though.
Never fear, you're doing alright with yours.

  Ah. the ice is all gone now, the leaves are out, my bike has been on the road since the middle of March and I'm working on a full size steam boat now. Couldn't get better. :}

  Yeh, its real tempting to come back I guess. If you decide to take a trip over again let us know.
 I haven't been back up to the cottage yet. John will start coming up for the summer in a couple of weeks. I expect we'll start up again then. His wife is retiring this year so that should be interesting. Phil is still plugging away at his Atlantis.....painting all those little winches is driving him nuts.

  I've been doing a bit more detail work on the Neddy. Fitting out lights, ladders and radar and such. Takes a bit of time to do the fiddly bits, but when you stand back and look, I think its worth it. To that end:...... the winch painted:
