The next part of the build was the stern roller I use a metal tube and turned the end caps using alloy and the pins are made from brass

The stern end was cut and brass plates fitted to support the roller, the end caps are made from brass tube shaped and a brass bush fitted inside for the roller pins to fit into.

Thank you Howard for your kind comments, but I am afraid that I am not very good at putting words together so I donít think I will be writing a book. (I will have to stick to building models) {-) {-)

Thanks for the positive comments. :-)) Yes Derek the plate pertaining bolts are 2mm hexagon headed brass bolts, the holes were drilled and tapped. unfortunately I donít have a photo showing the deck frames under the stern plate, when I drilled through the alloy plate I also drilled into the deck frames this also secured the deck and inspection plate.

You will have seen her many times going up and down the river  Howard, I still have the main winch and windless to build so if anyone has some good close up photos of them it would be much appreciated. :-))

Can you clarify your pictures Chipchase.  Did you make a wooden frame for the cabin first, and then use it to construct the plastic shape around it  ?  It looks like the wood has been removed.

Cheers
