Just got round to making a mould and casting the forward life raft canisters, four needed so eight castings, they are a different type to the aft ones, and have two different stowage's.

Hi Radiojoe ,
 I found A photo of H.M.S Brecon as Patrol Boat. May I ask have you seen a photo like this of the set up in the Hunt Class?
Regards

Hi Sailor1,  yes I have quite a few photos of the Hunt Class, as it's a scratch build I rely on photos for detail.  :-))

Thanks for the info Rob, who would of though that a GRP hull ship would be worth refitting after over 30 years in service.

Got a bit more done on Brock, the forward life raft deployment rack and stowage rack well my versions that is.

Joe,
I think these are decoys containers and not life rafts. Looking good though.

It would be interesting to find out more about those containers O0

Further to the above Joe, have a look at reply no.268 on page 11 of this log - there's a good view of the liferaft canisters on your plan.

Got the latest bits painted and fitted to boat, now to pick something else to make next possibly the Paravanes or the fuel can stowage, the more you study these plans the more bits you find, so should keep me amused for some time.

That is becoming another first rate model Joe. It looks like the one I saw in Poole a few years back.

Just back from holiday, I thought I would get back into building Brocklesby by making a few more of the simpler items, so here's a large cable reel located forward on the sweep deck, and another ventilator just aft of the mast.

Welcome back Joe! How were your holidays? Did you drink responsibly and slap on plenty of suncream????

Your model making powers have not dulled during your sojourn I see  :-))

Thanks Ian, I did drink a lot of tea but didn't need the sun cream well it was only the north midlands %) %%

Hi Rich,   the deck is painted with Acrylic dark charcoal not textured but has three coats applied by brush.

Been busy making a batch of deck items I think there's enough to paint and fit before starting another batch.  ;)

Lovely details Joe.  It's the small things that really make a model, and Brock is shaping up very nicely!  :-)) :-)) :-))

Looks superb Joe well done


Can I ask what type of paints you have used on her and what colours especially for the Hull grey and the deck grey?

Thanks guys,    The hull and superstructure is painted with Halfords spray cans Poplar Grey, the deck is Humbrol acrylic Dark Charcoal three coats applied by brush, as you can no doubt see, but then I never try for perfection in the paint work the real ships certainly weren't.  :o

Joe,

Excellent work, and totally agree with your philosophy on painting, are you putting a varnish over the top? :-)
