gra 2 hi there

Nice to see you progressing well with the ~Whaleback~  as far as the Anchor Windlas goes, I dont have any photographs now of the Windlas on the whaleback

however, the same windlas was used on several air sea rescue launches and it is the same Windlas on the RTTL

I have carried out a websearch and I can only find images of the modern version of the Windlas - the version you require is a mechanical one - where it has the socket at the stern for the operating handle.    I will put a few photographs on of the RTTL one - also Maxmouldings do a 1/24 version - I know its too small for yours; but it will help you when you are scratch building one for your required scale.

G/day Rmay and Dave,

Hope photos help method is the same as other members use on this forum.My experience is that you will loose some during the process.Sometimes you will get one first try.
For these cowls i made my tooling from timber but i placed a steel washer on the entry of the female tool glued with epoxy 5 min.gives a nice flat landing.
Material is polystrene sheet and rod from Evergreen.
I heat the kitchen oven to approx 250deg cross the fingers and away we go.Use a plastic filler to blend in upright and cowl once glued together.

Looking good, following your posts with interest  :-))

Couple of questions

What thickness card did you use to mould cowls?

How did you form the deck lights in your last pic?

regards

Hi Longshanks

I used 1mm thickness for cowls.
A fellow club member made decklights for me on a Pantograph Machine.

Can you go over to Photobucket  ?    There was talk of 'Post image' being a  problem on here.

Why has postimage stopped working it has been okay in the past.

 For the simple reason that the website template makers, (NOT Martin), are too bl**dy lazy to make sure ALL coupling software is totally compatible.
 
  Part of a mate in Michigans job is to ensure that all new teknowleggy can comunicate with the data base of the company he works for. Due to the ongoing complaints about the MHS administered forum sites (ME, MB etc.) he had a look at the structure and said the most complained about problem was an easy fix. Two years later, it's still a pigs ear.
 
  Sadly when you buy a program(me), it has to be trimmed to suit, pity the originators don't loose wages until it's sorted - - -  Spline chunk needs you to "Allow pop-ups" and £
  Regards  Ian.
 
 
  WOW!  WHEN WAS THAT ( ) FIXED.
 
 Hmmm The Pound sign ISN'T fixed, it just looks that way when you're signed in. Sorry Martin, 1 out of 10.
