hi all
I have been scratch building again, pictures show the fenders im going to put on my lifeboat, each one has four pieces, then i have sanded down to what i consider a match to the pictures i have seen on the net, some finishing off and a drop of paint and think they will look ok..

Hi, they look very neat and uniform. Are they made from polystyrene or 3d prints? I'm guessing they're not mouldings looking at colour of part on LHS which looks like a PU casting?

big step back wards this week with my build , i removed the the window frames from the main cabin which caused all kinds of problems for me, i was prompted to make my own frames by now which are coming along quite well actually, i now have decided to make the deck lighting actually work so a bit of cutting and remodeling needed, and to finish off a repaint , now ive got my garden project finished i can get back to the boat, pics to follow shortly,,

The holes have been cut out for the lighting and made good, with a box inside to accommodate the LED, all my window frames are done and waiting there paint , so it's on the right track again.

Hi Trucker,
Not an easy choice you had to make there, but you will be pleased you did, once you have got back to where you were at and now even beyond :-)) . Keep up the good work and hopefully your enjoyment and satisfaction with it all.

Thanks for the encouragement Kim, its hard to go backwards but it is satisfying to correct the wrongs even if it is the hard way to learn  {-)
thinking of reducing the window opening size next, they look a little over size in the photos.

spent the biggest part of today filling in the existing window holes hopefully to improve the windows, firstly i cut a nice piece of plasticard for the inside this gave the sides extra strength and some thing to glue the infills to, after giving that some time to dry off i set about cutting 1mm plasticard for each window, glued in from the outside, a little bit of filler to fill the tiny gaps, going to leave for a few days so every thing to go off then im going to rub down and recut the holes for the windows hopefully a bit more accurately this time  O0

Hi all
i put together two spot lights this evening made from pieces out of the scrap box, i shaped the inside to give the look of a full size light, the LED is 3mm and will be working along with the other deck lights, some cleaning up and paint it it will look ok.

The front spotlights I used on my Tyne are white metal ones from Cornwall Model Boats they are 6mm diameter. Here's a picture to give you some sense of scale.

Hi all
Because ive made the deck lighting a working item ive had to remake the covers for them, pictures show them scratch built from the scap box, there is actually 6 bits to each one, some sanding to shape and lots of patience  %% , they have now been primed along with all the window frames, ah question time, should the window frames be painted aluminium or polished aluminium .
