Thanks Ray,
Now I've got back to it , Its starting to dawn on me how much there is still to do. I've one or two major item to build, One being the sonar cable winch. But until I can get some picture of this winch, it will have to wait.


The other item is the large crane on the stern, but recent photos of HMS Quorn shows this has been removed. So again until I have proof this had been permanently removed or replaced I'll wait before making and fitting one.

Gents,
Some pictures of first feet wet for HMS Quorn, sorry the pictures are not to good, but will post some better one when she is finish and on the water.


The first sea trails , showed
She required me to add more ballast to the stern
Bow thruster work well and she answer well the the helm
Smoke generator was set up to work on a latching micro switch which was operated by over trimming the rudder servo. No issues
Sound and other functions worked well.

T-tripple8 ..........your build looks absolutely  :-))....,but just a minor point....... is that a de-compression or re-compression pressure vessel?....may not sound important...but to a diver with actual bubbles of entrained oxygen in his blood >>:-(.... would probably prefer one over the other mentioned vessels

"A recompression chamber is a hyperbaric treatment chamber used to treat divers suffering from certain diving disorders such as decompression sickness"

De-compressing the atmosphere the diver is subjected to would simply kill that person......... your call O0

[PS...I am a little surprised that some of your fellow Countrymen with their vast and attested nautical knowledge and experience did not flag this to you]

Heard it called both on MCMV's Derek.
A diver coming up too fast would be recompressed to his original
working depth pressure and slowly decompressed to surface pressure.

Evening Ned.....whilst not associated with above water weapons systems, in my time with our DofD I did have  a little training with Hale Hamilton pressure reducing valves......these were UK produced from WW1 to current day I believe

In the applications I mention were installed exclusively for 'recompression hyperbaric equipment'

Lets not mince words ....words can be incorrectly used/stated....or just totally mis-understood O0

First gents thanks for your comments re the model making and model. :-))
Secondly, I do not wish to get into a war of words. <*<

Ned is correct in what he said, both references is used in the U.K. To discribe the dive chamber


However .......Decompression is the illness, Recompression is the treatment. Based on this extract from the London Diving Chamber.





The London Diving Chamber specialises in Diving Medicine and provides a 24 hour clinic with everything a diver could need from a medical facility.
