Ive not had a lot of time on it.

Ive added some graphics on the wheelhouse, stern and bow, all the detail on captain's quarters is finnished apart from liferings, ive added both sets of hydro controls for crane and some other details.
ive spent a while trying to get the mast and all associated bits ready, its quite time consuming given all the different thicknesses of materials .

cheers

Chris

Hi Chris, I have followed your build from the start, you are doing a great job of it. I am looking forward to the launch day. If it is possible could you show more pictures of internal mechanicals & bridge details & also what working features do you plan on fitting ?. Mick B.

thanks guy's

Ah Mike..thats the wife's job, shes actually painting the other side at the moment <*<, the garage is also due to be replaced...all in good time :D


@ Irishcarguy, no internal workings yet.....lol its just an open plan void...well i have bow thruster in and i have made battery holders :-)) i am hoping to have a fully operational crane i.e at least 3 function, left and right, up and down, boom up and down...for the life of me dont think ill be able to have an extender boom as well / hook up and down.
im planning full arsenal of lights.....3 nav lights.....8 halogens.....7 large halogen/spotlights
i have a pump, im dithering as to include it or not, the real thing is quite a powerful site anthing resembling a pee would be naff....so im thinking about it i could put a kink in the pipe to make it more spray and forced looking.

The bridge/wheelhouse im hoping will have dials lit up etc...i have plans and layouts ready so as soon as the mast is finnished that is my next port of call.

The dual radars will be operational.........i think all that is more than enough for a noob like me ....;...lol......some of the above my fall by the wayside also if i find it difficult :embarrassed:

Thanks for the reply,that is quite a list, I wonder if the show people would have an interest in your build when finished.I would send them some photos, you never know what bright idea they might come up with to use it in the show. Just a thought, and you are doing a bang up job, lovely model. Mick B.

Not a problem.

Amazingly when i need a bit of time to get on with the build, i become busier than ever with my "grown up" {-) job, ive literally been doing 6 and 7 days a week, and any spare time at nights has been eaten up by my wife and 3 kids under 7 %%

Im fully expecting to get back under way in the next few weeks  :-))

thanks for the continued interest.

i managed some time on the build this week,

however tuesday i spent much of the 6 hours re-familiarising myself with what i had cut and prep'd months ago....damm no easy task  {-)

today i was working on the mast and derrick, i did cut some pieces months ago that were for this, they have gone walkies....no problem though worked out all the scale sizes cut and all are fixed into place.
i fixed on my home made hawsers.....well they were half bought, i made ears for them for inside the hull ( rope would normally be wrapped round them irl ) on the outside i hand made the hawser openings.
nothing worth talking a picture of, maybe over the weekend

weather up here is pretty wet, so i may have more days to cattle on....
