No major work done on board. Engines just exchanged. Quite quickly too.

Cast off the 30mm gun kit from the masters for Clyde & Penzance last night. Also made the doors, satcom and the rudders.


Not too happy with the doors, so may remake them later.

The gun looks brilliant! It is impressive how the 30mm cannon (itself not a small gun) is dwarfed by all the gubbins around it on the mounting.

Keep up the good work:O)

Hi ,
Progress is slow due to recovering from a opp on my arm.
What I have done to date is rubbed the hull down with a fine wet & dry grit paper, then sprayed it with a filler primer which is then cut back. once I'm happy with the finish the hull is sprayed with a red primer. Again this is cut back using a fine grade paper, then the under water line is marked and the area above masked off so the lower half can be sprayed with a satin vanish.

I wish you a full and speedy recovery from your Op. The sanding should give you some essential physio on your arm muscles.

Thanks, recovery well under way , it's been hard sanding using only one arm and not being able to do modelling , even when I've been to the SWA shows , had to rely on others to lift my models . hopefully will be able to get back to work next week. Also get some modelling done.

Your cracking on with her Dave, I do like the 30 mm. I've only made the cradle for mine, but I did intend it to be a winter build, looking good mate, see you Sunday.  :-))

Thanks Joe,
The 30 mm is one of my owner moulding kits.


It will be along time before she gets her feet wet, I've still have a lot of the electronics to install. I also plan to have the bridge fully detailed, with a removable roof , so when she at SWA shows the public can see it.


Sound like your winter project is already under way !

The danger zone around the 30mm looks brilliant - is it painted in situ ?

Thanks Ray,


Its done by using yellow solar film, which I cut the circle out using a compass cutter, then the black is painted on.

My pleasure sir. (Bows and wiggles hat theatrically:O)

Serously though, those sort of markings horrify me. I can just paint stars on US military models but multi coloured rings that are rouns and symetrical, that is an achievement.

J pegs are allowed/  maybe they are over 100k in size.  Might need reducing.

Cheers

You are getting a computer model clash  methinks.  A bit beyond my technology.  Is it an  Ipod type thingy or tablet  ?   Can you try an old type desktop machine.  ?

Hi, Ken,
Thanks for the help, yes I'm using an iPad . But all the past posting have been made using the same iPad.
As we don't own a normal computer , it looks as I may not be posting any picture.
