 HIALL,
       I had no response on details of peridot  , so would go for a dummy build using card ,
        so would not messup on master build, card is cheaper than styrene,  also i now have a set of templates for build;
         see dummy build pics .......LARRY

all I know larry is that she had a pretty inauspiscious life until her very tragic end in 1968, when she was lost with all hands off  Kopasker,Iceland on the 27/28 january 1968.

she had a sister ship called ST Apollo which was scrapped in 1974.
apart from that there isn't a great deal of history on her, as she was just like any other deep sea trawler..a good steady earner.

Larry, If you are going to continue with your build log, could you ask the mods to put it in the working vessels section where we can all watch it with interest, rather than keep thinking you are after another trawler plan in the wanted section.

Arh, that's better Larry.
in answer to your question, I have always skimmed the bulwarks with polyester filler ( car body p38 type stuff) and then sanded it to a nice smooth finish....turns out well.

THANK YOU Neil,
                       Thats the method i think i am going to do,
                        the F/G is so many differentness in thickness , 
                        and the top hand rail is important to the finish,...at the cover deck at the stern,   
                         also i am still looking on line for detail of deck works and finish.......Larry...

Hi LarryW.
I was on Hull Trawlers for twenty years so if I can help I will,I have made a model of the Hull Trawler H 303 Southella it is a fully working RC model.  I sailed on her for quite some time I will try and upload a pic, Iam selling her because of ill health but because I hav not posted 25 times on this site I am not allowed to put it in the for sale section had I seen your post soonerI would have sent you the plans of the  Peridot for free.

hi yorkie,
           thank you for reply that's a long time on trawlers, in the 50Ty's i was stationed in hull ,
           attached to the TA  as a instructor on armoured transport.
             had digs in Hassle rd , and used to go on fish docks and watch the trawlers unloading the bobers and porters where unbelievable
            and many a date fish lady ,   you say you have a plan of a trawler which one  i am working from does not have a lot detail.
         also i am looking for deck detail like winches and other deck clutter, i am not going to build a fully detailed model haven't  got that
          experience . only been modelling 2 yr , but getting a bit better, this is a big build for me,  so hope you can help......Larry...

Hi Larry

re file swapping

that link will get you Dropbox. It is for doing something on one device and it updates the file on all your devices.
I didn't use it for that though. It is a great tool for sharing any type of file. Basically any file you put in Dropbox
gets it's own link which you can send to your buddies - they click link and download the file. It won't play with
folders though. What I did for a lot of files was put them all in a folder - Zipped the folder into one file - put that
in Dropbox, and then sent Carl the link. One link got him 950 files - no emailing, no uploading, maybe 5 minutes work,  FREE

Oh yes - Dropbox is also like a backup (if you use it) and if you lose data on your pc - Dropbox still has both it and the older versions of it. :-))

I am enjoying your build
