Hi there back once again.
Hull suspended while her anti fouling drys (well gloss enamel ).
Preparing the "Madonna" for the Model Boat Club meeting at Ballina.
I melted the lead and poured it into mint tins, for the ballast in her Bow section.
Showing the forward lead weights lined up, in her Bow used 2,901 grams, and in her stern 1,307 grams, all up 4,208 grams or 4.2 kgs or 9.24 lbs ( I think that's right ?).
Showing how I retrieve the lead blocks out of the front ballast box ( have felt glued in the base of the ballast box, they slide in and out smoothly.

Bow view of her name (before I put the Lic letters on).
Stern quarter  view of her aft w-house.
Ballast test day (at that stage she still needed another 600 grams in her tail).

Now with the Lic.Letters on her and finished,? well not quiet, I found out from the original owner the Black trimings were wrong they are Royal Blue  :embarrassed: , so had to do a re paint on her sponsons,capping rail and trim under windows (does look better).
A shot of her beside the next model on the same 1:16 scale, I should be able to start again on later in the year, (as my wife and I are going traveling here in the best country  O0 ).
Sea trial day at Ballina ,beside an "Amsterdam" tug.
Her cruising along , very happy with her performance.
Hope you enjoyed the build and thank you for the positive comments........

A great build like this deserves to be immortalized as a masterclass. There hasn't been one for a while.

Thought I might up grade some photos of her, probably a couple months after finishing her decided to move the pivot points for the trawl booms down lower ( to how the original  had later) and make a set of twin trawl gear for her. The Mosquito net worked out just right for the scale using ,but plenty of eye strain making it, we then had a morning at the local creek testing her ,with a mishap .
