   Hi all,

Due to holidays and other cases, the work on the trawler for a while stood still, but that has now changed. Still several issues had to be made on the deck. I'm not sure what to call everything, but it is mainly rolls where the fishing lines come out and where the lines are led back. A railing with control for winch and three hatches and a winch made​​.
After this I must still make the railing and some small things and then the building is almost finished and it needs to be painted only.

In the pictures I show only the new stuff so you can see what's new.

The beginning of a winch






And then you get this



And here the new new dekfittings. I have no pictures of the building but trust me. It was not without any problems to find Proper shapes and sizes













And yes the chains are a bit too thick. For this, I am looking for a smaller one.

Hello people

Today continued with the factory of the bulwark. The legs must be made and aligned and that was lots of work. I have glued the feet  to the deck with a mould  (after I had measured out where to stand, of course) and then the horizontal pipes fitted.
Because Cyanoacrylaat-glue adheres poorly on brass I have every bonding later touched with a bit of epoxy glue.

It looks nice, and things are properly aligned.  The building is now ready apart from some minor things, and so we can start painting.




All fifteen ready




alles vast.




Sorry no further pictures here. Here is the epoxy I use


The almost ready-pictures

Is Medium Density Fibreboard better? I think it's because I am a little bit younger than you people. Elderly people and new materials has always been a problem %%

I'm not elderly, just experienced!!  :kiss: Call it what you will keep MDF away from water whatever you use it for. Oh and wear a mask when cutting and sanding.

That's absolutly true. I use it for a static model but would never use it for an rc-model. For my static model model I have no problem with it. My father build his first model with mdf some 15 years ago and it still looks very good.
Hope I didnt offended you, I tried to make a joke.

Now on with the boats. I am currently painting the skipper who will be on the bridge

Kind Regards, Kees

Lately, I have been painting the second figure that will be placed on my ship.  It's Captain Job and he will soon be found on the bridge. I think it's successful and I've at least had fun painting.

At this moment I've come a little further with the boat. First I build some trawldoors. They are used on the trawlnet as a rudder to keep te net open.








After this I started the paintwork. The first staps are done but it is off coarse not ready yet. The weathering will take a lot of time and work. In this first stap I use the 'saltflake methode'.

I had a lot of fun weathering the ship these days. Maybe it's not everybody's taste but I like the result so far.

The past few days I worked on the crane with powerblock. It's being used for hauling(?) the nets in.

Hi Kees de mol,

That weathering finish is fantastic, and very realistic, with dents and buckles too I notice. I am going to look up what the 'Salt flake method is'.         Superb ability.

Regards,
John

The next job was the netroll. I started painting and weathering and after this I placed the net on the roll. Voor netting I use bathsponges wich have nice netting if you cut the string holding them together. I also painted and weathered the trawldoors wich are made from aluminium so no rust this time.

A friend of mine ran a trawling company. He used to describe the fleet hull colour as 'sunset gold' rust.
