When I was happy with the shape and position of everything the pipes were fitted in place permanently.

The next part of this stage was to fit and glue the heat shield in place.

Then I used some micro rod to form the ships horn pipes and fixed them in place ready for me to build the forward platform.


The rod was too small for fixings, so I applied it directly to the outer surface of the casing.

Marmoi ....I found the K&S tube bending springs a PIG of things to use  >>:-( ....but you have no choice as your application displays non constant radii with the sets of tube
You may find using a fixed former.......[known radius] [the neck of a bottle %) ] to lay the springs against O0
Annealing the copper or brass tubing also helps
My solution was to use the K&S fixed radius tube benders.......... Derek

Hi Derek,


I have all sorts of pipe benders and if I don't have what I want I will put a bit of bar in the lathe and machine the right size groove, but this job was definitely more artistic as the bends went in all sorts of directions and therefore, by using the springs you can gently adjust the bends and forms until they fit correctly. You cannot do this with tube benders.

I often pop back in time to look at old project topics and on seeing this one I wonder if Indomitable got finished? She was shaping up to be a beautiful model.

Mark aka Marmoi built a few models recently at was seen at Deans open day with his spectacular 1/72 K-22 K-class submarine and his 1/48 scale P Boat from WW1. I know that he is building another model that is pre-WW1 but the G3 I donít think is complete. Iíll speak to him at Blackpool next weekend and see how far along the G3 is.

Spoke to Mark this morning about the G3 and whilst it has progressed hugely it has been slowly had bits added to it. Now that he has a club to sail at he hopes that the model will be re-started very soon.
