Ok, same story ...

If someone can help me out?
I'm using firefox (with noscript), but all restrictions are switched of.
A new window poped up, "browse files", and some secs the file is uploaded to  öhh.. -nirwana?
(and what the h.ll is "hotgirls4..." ???)
anyway, no pictures here...  <*<

 Aft deck without the dummy and visible sealing (a kind of tupper ;-)


Dummy deck


The main engines, between 2 pumps to supply the rear thrusters


Sorry, can't find some pics of the opened superstructure actually.
The main winch and all parts on aft deck remain on its places. Crucifix ist devided, and I can pull out deck 1+2 with crane, FRB, secondary winch and all parts added on the rearplane of superstructure.
It's a little bit tricky, but: That's modeling ;-)

Hi  Peter.

I thought I recognised your boat . I have been following your build on a different web  site. Most impressed.

Got a bit bored building the hull, so I decided to start on the bridge deck and superstructure.

The bridge looks too small, but I have checked the dimensions about a dozen times and they are right - will look better when its finished - I hope!

Peter,

Thanks, thats a good way of gaining access, I was thinking along th e lines of lifting the bulkhead vertically, but your idea is better - more room for fingers! :-))

WOW!

Bridge is a fiddly (?) work to do, but it looks fine, well done!

Dimensions seems to be correct- my own bridge is a bit oversized, I forgot the socket and added it later. Therefore my bridge looks ~8mm higher.

Is there any supporting/stiffening  structure inside the ABS plates?
(If you want to lift off the bridge later, it would be essential)

Fiddly describes it just fine!

There are no supporting structure yet, but there will be, probably in the form of control desks around the structure,and floors.

Looking great as usual.  :-))

Peter,
Nice of you to lend a hand. It's always
good to see how others have assembled things.

Hi Umi :-)

Didn't you sleep sometimes?
Is there a forum around the world you are NOT involved?
I might have known it... ;-)

Did you see what Ive done to your floodlights?
(in the photoalbum, near at the end)
It's the best solution at yet. 3 sunny-white SMT LEDs + resistor are inserted from the rear side.
Tey are very flashy at ~15mA!
For the first version I forgot to paint the reflector in silver, and now you can  see a "black hole" when switched of.
But that's no problem,  actually there is no application to use for, and for the next time I know how to do.

CU
Pete

PS:
I've managed to go to Heemskerk next weekend, and meet the guys of SMG Ijmond and probably some of the IOS.
Shure, this will become a fine meeting :-)

Back to it at last :-))

Spent all day today building wheelhouse control desks - not much to show for a days work, but they were fiddly, and I had no detail plans, just outlines, so just made 'em up as I went along.

Ian,

Wonderful work - compared to my progess on less detailed work on the wheelhouse of my Anglian Sovereign, you have been working at light speed. All power to your elbow.

Worked them up using renshape.... Styrene would work also(left).

I then made a mold and clear cast them with the LED inside.

Went out to the garage this morning to look at yesterdays work and discovered I had made one of the control desks wrong handed - made it for the port side, should have been starboard doh!

So, remade that, then went on to some more indoor furniture, then some external fittings and started the mast.

Bear in mind its all dry fitted at the moment, hopefully it will look better when painted and stuck properly.

Looking good Ian, :-))      my, you do like models with lots of windows in them  :}

Looking forward to helping you launch it, be another launching trolley I suppose , hope this one doesn't float like the last one  %%

Oh, hope you are going to make cushions for those seats in the bridge  ;)

Launching will be a while off, Alan, time for you to build  your muscles  :-))

Cushions for seats? This is a working ship, not a liner, blooming crew should just be thankful for seats!

Very nice, I feel like taking seat in one of those chairs and head for the horizon! Again an interesting subject and very nicely built.

Can anyone help me by identifying what colour these lights should be? And under what sequences they should be lit.

The pic is of the Bourbon Orca, and shows the forward face of the mast,

Thanks
