Your fabrication work on the ST is impressive and you are making rapid progress with the build. I like your slot-fix interior and everything fits together snug. Usually the deck opening has a quarter inch high raised combing around the edge to deflect spray from entering hull openings but this design has a single large opening and this gives a very useful one piece cabin/rear 'deck well' with removeable cabin roof. I think that spray entering the forward cabin is unlikely to be a problem in calm weather sailing. This is lovely work - your design and use of materials is superb - excellent fit and finish. :-)

Thank you Perkasa man, To differentiate my invented craft from the real ones, I have added a higher cab, I am intending to make this an engineers ST, so it will be substantially different in many places, It also allows me to load it with tools and stuff, The thinking is if it was real it would have a lower cabin down below the cab and in the bow. Ive cut the basic windows out now, these need there inner surrounds and frames added which i will make shortly, but wont add untill i have sprayed the top section up. I still also have to add the roof edging , hand rails, roof detailing and such.. long way to go yet!
Lighting circuit board with plug n play led system...


Basic cab structure- with 1/24 scale man showing the elevated cab design.

Still got to add strengthening frames to the windows on the inside..

Hope you all like !

Hey Coastal, very clean build you have here, well done. :-))  I was wondering about the lighting circuit board with plug n play led system. Will it work with a 12 volt system?  Any info on that would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Coastal quality build so far!  O0
 
I have some LED's for idiots questions if you dont mind answering?  %%  Basically, i want to put some nav lights on my build. Is it pretty straight forward inserting an LED circuit board and can you suggest a supplier?  :-))
 
Thanks Mark

Thanks, I will keep watch for your write up on this.  I use leds on my boats but they come prewired with the resistors on them . I am trying to find a way to eliminate some of the wiring for my lights. On my last ship I had some 50+ leds last counted, alot of wires, all wired to a power distributor for 12 volt system.
