Did a bit to the mast. Could not do too much as I am still waiting for screws etc.
Bit of a work up as soldering is not really my thing, plus some of the parts were damn awkward to fit together an hold there for soldering.
Also a lot of the parts were close together, so I would be soldering one part and the part next to it would drop out.

busy building again i see, your swepper is a lot more detailed then mine, that might just be me not having the time to fully detail her.

how detailed are you going to go with her Richard???

Mast finished and installed. All except the ensign. I have to get another one as the ones that Robbe supplied are only printed on one side.

I have also soldered the handrails.

Ready for the water now then Richard ;D ;)

your going to put mine to shame with the amount of detail you are putting into it.
keep up the good work buddy, might one day have mine looking as detailed when i finally get to become a GOG and can class myself as a skilled modeller that is  ;).

Progress has slowed down quite a bit now I am on the fiddly bits.
Most of the front end is complete apart from a bit of detailing.
I am now on with the stern fittings, cranes paravanes etc.
I didn't realize you could have so many pieces to make up such small items, it has been a bit like a production line.
Two photos today,one showing bow of ship and one showing pieces partly made for stern.

Hi my mate, all jokes aside, you have given us some good inspiration by your build - it does truly look great.  It is difficult for people to understand - those who suffer from lung trouble - how difficult it is to spray paint and use certain glues and solvents - and how it leaves us literally fighting for our breath and wondering, is it worth it.... but when we look at the likes of your build...it certainly is worth it, because where those who have lung trouble will click is the day that you sail it breathing the fresh air and knowing what a struggle it has been at times for you to build it, its a good achievement my friend, carry on building. Its looking very good.

Yet another hard day in the shed, peaceful and quiet and no one to interupt me apart from the dog who seems to think because the siun is out we should play all day.
Any way today I finished the painting of the deck fittings which I then fixed.
Robbe in their wisdom mark out the deck for the fittings. They then give you all the dimensions to make the fittings and guess what half the fittings fit as instructions, covering the marking out on the deck and the other half dont!. ???
So here are more photos of progress so far.

Richard  ;)

PS Am I the only one that cannot stick anything with super glue apart from my fingers ?? :(

Richard,
In Janes 1974-5 it shows the inflatable on the after deck.
But as isthe usual practice I expect the stowage would change from ship to ship.

Hi Dicky

Great build, it really looks the business. In regards to Superglue I don't think your Robinson Caruso on that on, I have a habit of putting the just glued bits down on the bench an it sticks to the paper I have on top of the bench ;D ;D ;D
