Crazy man this Oldiron, talking about faults showing on the closeups cause there are none! Honestly, I thought this was a mix of pictures of your model and the original until I saw the background! Fantastic!
Hama.

  Thanks very much. Glad you enjoyed the build.

  Thanks very much.

 I'm using 6 volt motors. I find they're quite adequate for my purposes.

  As an update to this build, I installed on of ACTION Electronics P94 ESC/Mixer combos in the vessel this past week. What a phenomenal difference it made in the performance. The steering and backup work is incredible. It can turn on its own axis reliably and comfortably. The motors have much more power than with my original ESC.
  Great job on the electronics ACTION. I highly recommend it and my mates were duely impressed, too, on a test run tonight.

Hello

I really like your idea to avoid the regular (for this kit) big acess on the main deck which is not asthetic. good job

  Thanks very much. That large access was one of the things that bothered me about the Billings kit. I always thought it could be avoided. Turns out it can be.  Makes the vessel much better for towing if the modeller desires.

  I took a leaf from Voyager's book and added some weathering to the Neddy. I wanted it to look in well maintained, but used condition. The weathering was, therefore, work a day dirt and grime rather extensive rust and ready for the next paint.

In this post you have some pictures about weathering and details.


I applaud you for a particular detail, namely the lines that hold the mast up. Two of them are - like in the full-size vessel connected to the back corners of the wheelhouse. NOT awkwardly to the front of the roof, like Billings suggests in the kit directions.


This begs the question: Did you also make the mast go up and down like in a real Smit XYZ?

  no i didn't. I made the correct bracket etc., however, call me lazy, but I didn't feel like fussing with the rigging to allow it to go up and down.

I don't call you anything but a very skilled model builder :D


Let's see, if in the final stages I can still gather my ambition and try to make a raisable mast ...  ok2

 You're too kind.
I'm certain you can make the raisable mast. Like to see it when you're done.
