Thanks for showing which sander was meant.   :-))   Lately I have been watching a TV show from the states which features "Norm's workshop" and have seen sanding machines to make your juices flow.  Real industrial types that rotate and rise and fall that really do the job.

Just me, looking for the easy way out.   :}

missyd ........
1. you are now embarking on the path of painting...........could I suggest that you re-read the full detail by Stavros [Dave] in the Painting thread here on MBM ....where Dave nominates W&D paper down to 1200 from memory........
2. are those pin nails brass or iron?.........
Derek

Hi Derek
I will red thepainting tread. Thnks for the suggestion. I only want to say that ships never have a very smooth surface. The hull will be covered with the thinniest  glass fabric/parquet lacquer method. This will cover all steel pins visible.

Today I glued in the brass tubes for the two rudders.

Hullo missyd.....   .....sometimes it is very difficult to see what is going on & we can get confused......especially from 22,000km away...... %)
1. from the image of the real vessel I see port prop as anticlockwise rotation + stdb prop clockwise rotation for fwd motion [contra rotating outward turning]
2. from your model I see port prop as clockwise rotation + stdb prop anticlockwise rotation for fwd motion [contra rotating inward turning]
Just an observation........ :o  Derek

I did part of the assembly yesterday ... didn't come out too bad for the first try. But ..... its to complicated to get all part done and soldered in brass. I will redo "the thing" with plastic profiles from my model shop ....

missyd...if you are talking about securing plastic A supports to brass... >>:-( I doubt if it would be strong enough
Your attempt here looks OK.....you could consider lightly drilling the main brass tube to locate the 3 legs prior to soldering.......another consideration is the choice of soldering equipment......those little pencil gas torches & liquid flux assist
You can also soak a paper hand towel in water and wrap around parts to act as a heat sink
I think it would be worthwhile to continue to practise soldered construction.....Derek

Thanks for your advice Derek! I will try and solder more parts in brass in the future. Fot the Cornelia Marie I will build the parts with plastic profiles ... got to the shop and bought all the profiles I need. Much easier to do ...

Hi Danielle, I am enjoying your build, your work is first class but correct me if I am wrong, you have the props marked L & R but your boat is upside down so they will be the other way round when the boat is upright. I am not sure it matters but I saw that happen before with the navigation lights when installed with the boat upside down. Good luck with your build it is coming along great & thanks for sharing with us. Mick B.

Thanks Mick ... I know that I misslabelled L&R ... the props will be installed only after I tested them with the motors in place ... can never remember which one goes left or right ... I have one leftturning and one rightturning ...

Just love working with these ABS-Profiles!!!! I hope everything is finished till the end of the week. Aluminium profile is used to keep everthing level ....

First rudder is finished ... just have to clean it up and sand it a little bit.





As soon as the second is finished I have to make the pump inlets and finish the planking ...

With your help it will be corrected in the future...for photographic reason I just put the propellers on never mind left or right ...

Rudders are finished! (still some sanding needed)

Hi Derek,

seems you are measuring distances from Down Under.
I think Danielle is spying not more than some 8000 km into the Wild Blue Yonder.


Quote from: Derek
1. from the image of the real vessel I see port prop as anticlockwise rotation + stdb prop clockwise rotation for fwd motion [contra rotating outward turning]
2. from your model I see port prop as clockwise rotation + stdb prop anticlockwise rotation for fwd motion [contra rotating inward turning]
Just an observation...

Though correctly observed, in Danielle's place I would wait until her model of CM is ready for her first "sea" trials,
and then decide on whether letting the props turn outwardly or inwardly from the outcome of trials with respectively different arrangement.

I think for twin screw propulsion on real ships it cannot definitively be determined which arrangement is to prefer in general and both constellations can be found,
although I think that a slight majority of ship operators let the props turn outwardly.
Afaik, there aren't even distinct recommendations for either constellation that could be based on scientific evidence despite some research in this area by ship model basins, CFD analysis and ship hydrodynamicists´ experience.
Especially in model scale often the manoeuvrability can be considerably improved when letting the props turn inwardly (albeit this might relate to a single centre line rudder arrangement).

Still impressed by your building techniques  :-))
Sorry to hear about the job situation, but noted your 'ah well always get a new one' remark. Well seeing you are in Switzerland and not Cameron Land  >:-o
