I can imagine some people viewing your model "in the flesh" asking where you bought your winch - quality work Dave. :-))

Well, it been a couple of months since I worked on HMS QUORN. As I've Been on holiday to Mexico and working on my Shannon class lifeboat which has now come to a stop.


So I've started back on QUORN with the crane bases. The picture are of the master crane base, which will be used to make the mouldy and the resin castings for three of the four cranes.

Stunning work there T888!
If my HMS Protector comes half as close as your model I'd be happy, beautiful work. You and Joe are fantastic modellers and I hope one day I can get the same result. :-))  Until then I'll keep watching and learning!

Jay,
Would love too, but my life expectancy would be reduced by the boss !!!!
Bobs correct, only work on your hobby when you have time.


Colin, Ian thanks for your comments . Also some more pic of the winch deck.

I am stunned by your castings and master moulds - could you share how you go about this, would love to see how this is done in practice.


Thanks a million,
