Thanks all for your comments, much appreciated. I will keep updates coming, my only problem is the lack of time.
Gently gently, catchee monkey! (You see, Kim not only taught me modelling skills, but proverbials as well :-)) )

I have been working on some items recently which I would like to share with you.


The steering wheel was made from a steel curtain ring using 1.2 mm brass rod for the spokes. The hub was machined on my lathe from aluminium an then polished using metal polish (the product you usually use for polishing chrome parts on cars).

I have decided to replace the deck lights which I had made before with the 3D printed parts I found on the internet recently. The parts need some fettling before they fitted together properly but in the end the result is much better than the ones I had made myself using a pearl. I made the glazing using 1 mm clear perspex. The parts were painted using Revell SM302 satin black enamel paint. The paint must have been too old (definitely not a stirring issue) as it did not cure. I put the painted parts into braking fluid and did the paint job a second time airbrushing with new paint which I had bought. This time all went well. I used Tamiya fine primer from a rattle can before. I never will use old paint again <*<

Arno,
Yet again you have done us proud on this 'thread' :-)) . Some excellent work and tips of how to progress [and even not....old paint!]. The wheelhouse fore-deck spot lights are superb and for those reading this, if they go to the website shown and to page 4 they will also find spotlights for the RNLI Tamar, Severn, Trent and Arun class lifeboats at various scales of 1/16th and 1/12th......well worth a visit. However, since Brexit not so sure how easy it will be to get them back to the UK!
Thanks for my shackles and the curtain rings in my Christmas present...they will get used in the near future [more of which to follow].


So folks, in the next couple of weeks I hope to be having a replacement right hip fitted. This, and the osteo-arthritis in my left hand [mainly] and right hand too, has kept me away from my Shannon build...the physical use of which has had to be kept for household chores, before modelling enjoyment. However, I have done a little more 1/10th figure work in the past week, which is not so demanding on the finger joints and has kept my mind off the 'use of small saws, Dremels and hammers' in the near future {:-{ !!
Thanks again Arno and as soon as I can get around the workshop, a bit easier than I can now, I hope to be back following some of your excellent ideas to further the build on my Shannon.
Here's to a better 2022 for all those visiting this Forum.
Cheers,
Kim

Thanks Martin :-)) , that's let us see just how wonderful Arno's hinges are and the quality of the fore-deck lights.
Seems strange that we have not met at 'Warwick' for more than two years now! Maybe later this year?!*

Cheers,
Kim
