NICE Brian

Are you going to chop the top off the stanchions? As they dont actually wrap around the top rail???? ;D

Yes, I will have to cut the tops off.
I origionaly thought that it would be a good idea to be able to easily line the top rail up, but now I am not so sure.
I may be able to do it 'in-situ' but I fear that I will have to trial fit them, then remove them and smooth them, off the boat.
This is the first time that I have ordered etched brass and perhaps I should have asked more questions.  {:-{
After all, that's what Mayhem is all about!  O0

Mine are not completely  accurate, at 1:72 very awkward.

But at least I did not buy stanchions [wish I had].

Should have asked you for their shape first.  <:(
Kim at Clyde Model Boats can etch you some if you are interested.
Do you have any photos of the "gates" at various spots around the deck please?

Hi Brian

I have had a quick look through my Armidale photos and I have found a few of the different gates.













I hope that these help.

Thanks Steve
That's exactly what I need.  O0
At least I know what the shape is and what's happening with the hinges and supports.
None of Alans photos show the gates clearly.

I HATE mitred corners. >>:-(
My wife is always on at me to make her some picture frames but so far, I have managed to resist.
I agree with Glen, I am not looking forward to the fairleads.  {:-{ :((
Maybe another project for Steves casting?  %%

If it is any consolation I have been working, on and off, on the davits for a month and they are still only pieces on the bench.    {:-{  :((
The inward 'lean' in two directions has been putting me off!    :D

Still got a couple of bits to put on my davits when I get the RHIBs but the davits took me half a day to make.

Good On Ya Dicky.
 If I didnt have to work to pay the bills I might be able to spend more time on the boat but then there is the woodwork stuff happening and going bush each weekend looking for that other HAND OF FAITH (876 ounce Gold nugget found in 1980 with a metal detector).  %% SO when i find that I can spend ALL day doing models and the missus can go to work.   :-))

 Until then I will just keep plodding away at the model when I can.  :-)

P.S. My partner Fiona wants to know where you get the large emoticons from??

Hi Glen, tell Fiona that I find an emoticon that I like and I save it to my pictures and then download onto a file in Photobucket. They soon accumulate.
