 Started to build the wheelhouse today unfortunately as I have said before having no plans the wheelhouse is made from photos and guess work. The coaming around the battery hatch forms the wheelhouse base. I have used wood and 3mm ply for the wheelhouse floor covered with 2mm plasticard. Once I was happy with the way this fitted onto the deck I made cardboard templates for the wheelhouse sides. I have managed to get both sides and the front made today. Before I glued the sides together I measured and cut out the windows, if you try to cut the windows out after the wheelhouse has been assembled it makes it very hard to get a good finish. After the windows were cut out the frames are fitted using .75mm plasticard.

Super job there Brian - and that's a simple but relevant tip ref cutting out of the windows.  :-))

 Not much done over the weekend, but managed to get a bit more done on the wheelhouse today. The main vent at the back of the wheelhouse made and fitted, and the trawl door supports were started. The fittings on the supports are made from brass as these will have to support the trawl doors that will be hanging from chains so they have to be quite strong.

A very nice looking boat chipchase, I like the windows, are you going to glaze them, if so how are you going to do it, cut the perspex to fit inside?  %%

Hi Alan, yes I will be fitting the windows on the inside of the wheelhouse when I get to that stage. This will be quite easy on this model as the inside walls of the wheel house is wood laminate with wood window frames, here is a photo showing the real vessel being refitted.

Thanks for the positive comments all, (Jimmy has been most helpful during the build of the Amity  :-)) ) I am really going to have to get back onto the Amity build. I have just about got to a stage on my Cragsider build were she can be put to one side for now.
Regards Brian
