The mould cured well. It's the mould for the collectingbins where the fishermen empty the net in. There are two bins and the skipper can empty them in a central bin from where there is a conveyor-belt to move the fish to the workdeck.









The mould in the making






And its separated. Alle went well and I have a good mould




Here the mould is poured with resin. The left over I poured in another mould so I dont spill any resin




**** I did spill some resin and you can see its curing.




The resin is curred. This takes a few minutes but I wait a hour before I demould the casting.


Demoulding


Drill some holes to let the air in the mould




And here I have another good resin cast. The walls of the bins are 0.3mm thick. Almost no trapped airbubbles so I am very happy.

You have been pushing the envelope on resin casting kees! I missed the start of this build but I am glad I found it as the subject is very attractive.

I wish you good luck with your build, I will be following it with interest. Can you show us your milling machine? it looks mighty interesting.

Excellent Kees!


I visited the silicone and more website and was very pleased how much Dutch I can still read.it does me good to keep it up now and again.


Unfortunately with the amount of products I wasn't sure which ones you use to make the silicone moulds! There appears to be different kinds and colours and I'm not sure which to buy to try and do what you did.


 I see  you buy a liquid silicone and a hardner please could you give me some product numbers.
Same for the resin. I just wish to try and make some simple boat features less than 3cm thick for example.


Thanks for any help.   U2

I use the yellow silicon
http://www.siliconesandmore.nl/nl/products/siliconen-a-transparant-41.html

And the D70 PU resin
http://www.siliconesandmore.nl/nl/products/pu-polyurethaan-gietsysteem-set-d70-snel.html

You can buy it per kilo (500 grams A-component and 500 grams B-component)

Take in mind that the PU-resin has a limited expiration date

Thanks for that Kees I think I would like to give that a go. I'll be following the rest of this build with interest.

The chimney has a simple shape at first glance but I got some drawings of it and then you find out its a rather complex shape. There are some curved, round shape which run into each other. And there are some details which form a nice challenge to me.

Posted Image

First I had to build a chimney from polystyreneplate

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

And then the battery of my camera went dead so no more pictures from the building.


Like the other parts I need more chimneys so I started building a mould. It was hard to find out how I had to do this and I ended up building a 2-part mould from which one part had to cut at one side.



Here one part of the mould is curing. I had to use lots of silicone so with the other part i made some inserts to save on silicones.
Posted Image



Here are the two parts of the mould. You can see the left part has an incision. The parts I place on each other and then I place the red plastic around it to support the mould.

Posted Image


Later I find out that the mould contains some bubbles on some section. These bubbles will be in the castings too so thats a bummer. It is because of the 2-part mouldmaking. Only a vacuummachine can solve this but thats very expensive.



The casting. First I cast the thin upper part with 20grams of resin. With a thootpick I add some resin to the details in the thicker peace to avoid bubbles in the next casting.

After that I cast the thicker part whit 30grams resin and 30grams filler to save on the resin.

And then te results

Posted Image



Some flash but this is very thin and can be removed easily

Posted Image



The place where the bubbles are.
Posted Image



And then in 1,5 hours I got 4

offcourse I will add the details later

Here I made a start with the winchhouse. I couldn't build this without the original drawings I got. The polyester hull is also a bit closer to completion but I will post the photo's when I have some more results.

I went building on the chimney's. They needed lots of detaills after I had cast them. They are finished for 75% now so I have some work to do yet.

I finished the searchlights. Lot of parts and very small to make. I also used the lathe to make some signal lights (the glasses) There are 13 glasses per chimney. I made a toolbit to make the pattern in the clear plastic.








And I made some decals to make the model a little bit more realistic.





Next update i hope to show the finished chimneys

Today I did the last things to the polyester mold. I cut all the edges sanded and everything. Then it was time to find out if both halves of the mold wanted to separate. First I very carefully put a chisel between the halves and into the gap I tapped wooden wedges. It took some time and effort but suddenly The first halve separated from the wooden hull and after some tapping the other half released.
I am very happy because it was quite a lot of work and it was very exciting if everything would work the way I wanted.


Here some pictures from begin till now

Thank you all for the motivations {:-{


Today I finished the Self Inflatable Liferafts. I remeber my father (who was a fisherman) called them dinkys. It has two plastic shells which are bond together and in between is the liferaft. The liferaft is stored in a steel cage which can be tilted over to release the raft in the sea. In the water the  raft inflates and a rope keeps the raft close to the ship.


A picture of a raft


Soldering the cages








The rafts. I made on to use it as a mould and then I casted more in PU resin.


With some decals




And this is how they will be on the ship. Two rafts on each ship

Hi Kees, I have just seen your posts. The designer must have been a fine art student at heart as the funnelmast is a work of art. You must have sworn and cheered in equal measures whilst recreating it.

Wether you make it a kit r not, the detail will be fantastic considering the life raft containers and their holders and the searchlights.

Classy work Kees :-))

Thank you. The funnelmast was a challenge but I had the original drawing fortunately. Now the rigging will be a big challenge in the future.

What an inspiration you are Kees, wonderful workmanship.
I love the idea of your homemade router/milling machine....any more details about it?
will be watching this build further, I love the ship, and need some more pushing to get me motivated.

well done Kees.

For the trawler I needed a propellor and usually I buy these at the hobbystore but this time I couldnt find what I was looking for and the props I found were expensive (around 15-20 euro's). I need three so it would be a very big gap in my budget.



I looked on the internet for pictures of propellors but there were mostly beautiful new and shiny and thats not the way I wanted them.


And this is the way I like to build and paint them. This ship has fished for two years now before she went in the drydock
12805834_1705828853034018_25790867268313


I started with strips of styreen which I heated and shaped in the right shape. After that I made the shaft with the cuts for the blades
IMG_20160308_181750_zpsonjypu4f.jpg

IMG_20160308_181739_zpslubsb6w9.jpg


After some glueing I used some Milliput to make a smooth curve from the shaft to the blade. So it looks like a casted one
IMG_20160310_155807_zpszd3sgowi.jpg


Here the first paintwork. I used an aluminiumcolour with pigements to get the colour Ik wanted. After this I gave the props a protective coat of varnish
IMG_20160310_180344_zpsaxgawhlv.jpg


Than I went on painting with oilpaint. I want to weather one prop like its in use for years and the other two will get some lighter weathering.
