Is that a choice because you have tried both methods ? Not that I have experience in this skill and my relationship with an airbrush has been mediocre, if that is what can be achieved using the 'dry brush' method then that will be my choice

Mike I tried the airbrush once ... all the blue on the boat was airbrushed. But the mess it created in my workshop and cleaning all the stuff afterwards wasn't what I had expected.

Some more pictures of the built ....

cleaning up the wiring



Testing the lights

That just about sums up my attempts with the airbrush, more mess than results !
Your lighting came out spot on Danielle (no pun intended) It looks so realistic that it makes the room look out of place !  %%

It seems to have everything going for it - simplicity (therefore reliability), robustness and neatness. Well done Danielle!

I see Anita hasn't been round with the vacuum cleaner yet.  %)

Thanky you very much!!! Your postings give me new motivation to finish the project.

I did some more work .... Battery holder for 3x 12V (Motors and Lights) & 1x 6V (Waterpump)



...and the waterpump itself ... I used rubber spacers to prevent vibrations ...

Just noticed in your latest pics that there might be a bit of vibration from the stbd motor as there is a slight misalignment at the U/J.
You are probably aware of this already, but I'm just chuffed at finding my first small blip in this great build !      {-)

@Mike: Yes I know ok2
I'll see if it creates vibrations or not. The motor unit has some rubber mats under it.

 :-)) The problem with the misalignment is the result of "absolutely no experience" and "it looks ok it is ok". ;)

HI Danielle


Back to your post after several weeks, 2 things, you mentioned that when you sprayed the hull there was a terible mess, try hanging a damp sheet around the spray area, (DAMP) this causes the overspray to stick to the sheet and not go everywhere, the other or combined reason is that you posibly had the spray presure to high for the thickness of paint, this would also give a sandpaper effect as the paint is already drying befor it hits the surface.
Hope your problems wont stop you spraying, the effects and finish with practice can be superb.


Your photo of the speed controlers, are you fitting a plate above the rudders? if not please make sure the wireing cant droop down into the chain drive.


Regards

Danielle sorry to be picky but I can also see a potential problem in the wireing dept ....it is called Tamyia connectors....Personally I would change these for XT60 connectors which will carry a lot more current then those
Tamya ones

@Mark: Thank you for the very good idea with the damp sheet!!! I'll try this with my next trawler model. No problem with the chain for the rudders ... everything stays in place and out of the way!

@Dave: I know the Tamyia connectors are rubish! But the drawn current is very low (only 35mm screws). I never used other connectors a the Tamyia ones ...

I added the rubber sealing on the deck.



Some pics of the CM ...98% finished ...
