Oh, it was absolutly brilliant (Btw. I'm the one with the blue cap and X-Bow shirt). Unfortunately I had to cease the building of my "nose" <:(. It is almost impossible for one person to transport such a big and heavy model (1,35m length, 0,31m beam and appx. 30kg of weight). Most of all I'm depended on public transport.  >>:-( >>:-(
Guess I have to reorientate about the scale. Building a 1/100 little nose sounds good to me.

Meanwhile I'm thinking about selling the vessel.

I will see what I will do.

May the night be with you.

Greetings.

Mathew,

Which of the 'nose' boats is yours? Shame if you have to let it go.

It's the "nose" on the hook.  %)

Meanwhile i got used to the thought of ceasing the work on my Beluga. I'm really looking forward to a new start. Especially I had learned a lot during the construction work. I'm sure, some mistakes i won't do again. Too bad, it was one of the first German X-Bow Models. Petes was the first. My model was No. 3.

This week I have managed to spend some time - lots of time really - on sanding, filling, sanding, priming,sanding etc etc.

These pics show the current status, the pics make it look better than it is, still some filling sanding priming to do, but nearly there.

Yes, I know that but he must have some general arrangement drawing for all other parts and details of the vessel?

I would like to find more info on the stern of the Orca my self. That area has lots of design issues to work around. Since I am not around these types of tugs I can not get the info that I need to start my build. I have a coulpe drawings that were sent to me for the delftship program that do help some. I would just like to see what the stern looks like when it is out of the water and what it looks like from within a drydock looking up at the stern

Click, drag and rotate...  ok2

Ulstien AX-104 flash media and information page.

This video would have some of those views also... just save it, and take some screen shots.
There is a nice view of the stern and then the tipping platform installation at 2:24.

After having a check of the hull pictures I realised there were a few bits missing on the hull, the rope guides at the bow  >>:-(

So, out with the drill and piercing saw and here we have the result on the stbd side, port side yet to be done.

Some more work on windows and ports today. I made plastic liners to fit inside the windows and portholes in order to get a better finish than I would get with end grain wood.

I have also fitted all 4 rope guides for the bow, and the anchor stowage.

Before going any further with the hull prep and painting I thought maybe I should sort out the stern of this thing.

So, here are some pics of today's progress, its slow, but I have had to make up each part to fit. Hopefully, when the two sterns columns are on I should be able to make up some sort of rolled edge to go between them - thats the plan anyway.

Where or how do you learn to build something like this. im a new member to this forum and ive read lots of these build blogs and the craftmanship is second to none in most of them. Ive only built a couple of speed boats because its the easiest hull to make in my oppinion but i cant even comprehend where to even start on this kind of building magnitude.  :o %% <:( Are you peole real ship builders or something?

Mike,

I learnt as  I went on. Started out with a Billings kit - Bankert, which is the only kit I ever did. Then tried a planing hull (MTB Brave Borderer) and after that various types of model - yachts, fishing schooner, riva, etc.

You have started off well with speedboats, its a great way to develop the skills needed for more ambitious projects. When you decide to try something different, you will be surprised how much you already know. If you want to try something a bit more ambitious I would suggest you try a plank on frame hull next, maybe a fishing boat - the hull form is relatively straightforward, particularly if you choose one with a transom.

"Are you people real ship builders or something?" - not necessarily, although I think many of the blokes have a marine background, which does help in understanding what is right.

i use to have a nikko rc boat when i was a kid but that was really a toy. now im 25 i want to get into model boating cos its something i allways wanted to do. i couldnt afford to buy a kit so i started building them. Started off with some small 23 cm models put an rc in from a toy car. Ive just finished my large scale one using proper rc stuff. I got a long way to go yet but i feel if i am going to go down this type of boat building path then ill have to get a kit. i prefer building them to sailing them tbh.
