I use plastic water pipe and plastic pipe clips plus end stoppers for one end screwed to the underside of a shelf  keeps them all sorted and handy.

How do you process them? If you use a hosting site then they should offer a range of image sizes. I use Imageshack but they have a storage limit.

Hi Gents,
 Yes am still here back to SD14 Lifeboats I could not find any the size I needed any were so made a plug from card frames and infilled with balsa glued into and on to the card then sanded back to the card frames so i now had a solid plug I really wanted a open Lifeboat  white outside orange inside so try-ed to vag-form them but the small machine just was a little to small the get a good shape, another think, make a silicon mould  and cast in resin maybe but will i have to settle on a solid resin Lifeboat NO   I want a open one so I mixed up a little resin and pored  it into the silicon mould covered the bottom and then swilled it up the sides by turned the mould on its end and kept turning till it started to thicken and go off till it would run no more I put it to one side for a few hours before pulling it from the mould  and wow  am I pleased it worked  the bottoms about a 1/4 of the height but the sides are about what I would say scale thickness just the inners and seats to make  am so so happy. As soon as I can work out Mayhem photos I'll post some of what I have made.
                                                      Regards Howard.

Hi Howard - Hope you are well friend?  :-)) :-))
 
What you have done with those lifeboats is ideal - good shape and lightweight too!!
 
A German modeller at the Deans Marine open weekend last September demonstrated the exact same method for lifeboats of many sizes and they came out perfect every time.  Well done on sorting these out - ingenuity wins every time!!!

That's a crafty way of making the lifeboats Howard. I'll have to see if I can do similar for my fast rescue craft when it comes to making them.

Hi Gents,
   The last one I have made I managed to get the bottom (floor) down to about less then 2mm and hull sides to about1/2mm
    so happy  looks scale any thinner and I'ed think it would be  to weak.

Hi Gents,
   Just to let anyone still watching my build thanks for keeping a interest  the shipyard has now reopened only a few odd jobs to do finishing the outdoor  to do like making a worktop bridge across the garage (photos to follow) makes building more comfortable .
                           Regards Howard.

Hi Howard,
enclosed are the pictures of the plugs and the finished boats.........I moulded the hulls and then once rubber had set I made the hulls of the boats in thin skins of surface tissue matting and epoxy casting resin, just thick enough so that I could build the interiors..


However sadly for Ned, the double ender is 117 mm long and the transom ender is 108 mm long......but if any good to him or you I can send them on.they were built for my Calmac ferry as per plan so could possibly be ok.....the rubber moulds themselves went up to Scotland with all the other moulds and plugs a couple of years ago,

Hi Guys,
 I have some 1inch ali  square tube to run just inside the frames  along the floor tops to add strength  to the model as it's over 7ft long going to epoxy them on to the ply hold bottoms with a good bandage I also have lots of compressed card-angles as you can now get in packing  it's very strong   also thought I might try that to or should I use it to make  the boxes in the holds to keep the lead ballast  in place  120lb plus two 12volt, 2 6volt battery's has any one used this card packing before I look forward to your views.
                             Regards Howard.
