Lol! Not a problem. Strangely, I also don’t get notifications of replies.


Happy New Year to one and all  :-))

Hi DP,
Sorry not to have answered quicker, but Arno [SwiftDoc] has just told me your comment is here. For some reason my 'inform/notify' button is on, but I do not get told that new 'hits / comments' are here. I've told Martin, but unusually, no reply either.
To your point, yes, it's a small world and thanks for the update. I re-read what I had said and looked at the photos too. Unfortunately this has been a 'strange' three years or so and operations, Covid and 'osteo-arthritis' has not helped, regarding model lifeboat building....maybe 2023 will be better! I miss it. Arno's a very good friend and helps to keep my 'spirits up'. :-))
Well, reading this has reminded me, too, that I have not replied to SteamBoat Phil yet..........it's in my diary to do!
Do have a good 'festive break' and all the best in your 'slow build'........join the 'club'.
My regards,
Kim

I made a little progress painting the steering wheel. The hub was machined on my lathe and polished later.


The spokes were airbrushed black gloss and the using chrome finish made by Greenstuff World. I can recommend that paint very much, it cures harder than Alclad and does not have that awful solvent smell during the application.


The grey colour is Tamiya acrylic paint applied with a brush.

That's a great job on the wheel. Just had a quick look at Greenworld site and it seems to be a good one, thank you for the info  :-))

Hi Arno and Kim, hope you are both well. Thought i would share a little video clip i took of Hastings Shannon launching on service tonight, to give you some inspiration to crack on and finish your wonderful models. Hopefully your models never have to experience such extreme conditions!

Hi Charlie,


Many thanks for that amazing video! I will show it to my daughter as well who visited Hastings some years ago with her school class.


My Shannon build is still on hold due to the bad weather. I will have to do the paint job outside using the spray cans I bought from Halfords in pre Covid times. I hope all will go well and do not want to rush this as a bad paint job can easily spoil all the efforts that went into the build so far. I will post some photos as and when it happens.

I made a start painting the door of the wheelhouse and all went well despite the storage period of the spray cans. I sprayed two layers of white Halfords primer followed by two layers of VW Brilliant Orange. I let the paint cure 24 hrs before spraying the next layer, just to be on the safe side.


The screws are from Knupfer in Germany. They are quite expensive as they are made of stainless steel. The direction of the slots is the same as on the Dungeness boat, so rivet counters were working on the real boat as well as on the model {-)

I have finished the screen of the upper steering position. I used Glue n Glaze by DELUXE MATERIALS for fixing the perspex. The screws are stainless steel ones from Knupfer.


I hope to be able to continue with more details as the main paint job is still on hold (life came in its way…).

More work done on this…


The hinges of the locker door are bought from Knupfer. The door keeps closed by the small 2 mm neodym magnet I glued into it. The handheld display and the main monitor will be illuminated by small smd leds. I will reduce the voltage for them by resistors so that the light will not be too bright. The sms leds came with leads already soldered on from Component Shop.


All screws are stainless steel ones from Knupfer. The dummy bolts at the handle bar are from Master Club (made in Russia, but still available over here). The toggle latch at the locker door was bought from Spot Model in Spain (they have some very fine items for 1/12th scale cars which can be used for boats as well, for example the toggle switch at the control panel).

Hi Arno,
Thanks for keeping this going, whilst I cannot for the moment :-)) , as you and a few others know.


You've done it again...absolutely wonderful detail! The door is a real credit to your modelling skills [as per your Alfa Romeo model car collection] and as for the upper steering position helm controls.....superb. I really do like the opening door on the spotlight storage cupboard. The third photo looks just like the real thing....you almost have to have a 'double take' when viewing.


Great work and this should get some real praise when you eventually take it to your model boat club's pond.


Cheers bro',

I have finished the set of tools that is fixed under the hatch at the front of the wheelhouse. I have used rivets from prime-miniatures in the UK, painted by brush with chrome paint from Greenworldstuff. The hexagonal bolts are dummies from MasterClub, painted with the same chrome paint. The rest is scratch built from styrene and spruce dowel.


The hatch can be opened at the model as well, using neodym magnets at the opposite side of the hinges to hold the cover in place.

Photos are distorted as I had to resize them to a lower resolution, but when you click at them, they are ok. Strange, the iPad seems to be playing tricks on me.

Hi swiftdoc,
Well, it's so outstanding works....!!!!
Your way of building a model boat is always like the museum quality oriented.. surprising  :-)) :-))
If I were you, I would never go to such detailing works at all.
Superb detailing and passion toward representing the real boat. :-)) :-)) :-))

The common problem of working hatches on models: you always need to have something inside - someone will open it for sure.
Fantastic work, ideas and photos!   :-))

Arno,
Yep, you've done it again....superb and accurate detail, you'll have to bring it over to Dungeness on your next visit! Elwyn [down-under now] did the same with a model of their Mersey class; he got the green tea mugs at each seat correct - to the astonishment of a crew member visiting our stand at the Headcorn Show some years back!
I'm attempting to attach a cropped photo from the ones you sent me earlier today, just so that folk can actually see the real detail, closer up. The wooden handles are just SO right! :-))
You know the main reasons why I cannot continue with my Shannon at the moment, but you are doing a fine job keeping the help and interest going with this RNLI class of lifeboat here on MBM....thanks.
I've had a few 'enthusiasts' contact me over the past two days, so might add my modelling photos here, tomorrow, of what I am able to do at the moment, but not lifeboat orientated,
So thanks again, bro'.
Phil K. , if you are reading this, a PM will be on its way tomorrow. Thanks for your comments.
Regards to all,
Kim

Thank you guys for the nice comments, well appreciated! I will not replicate the tea mugs though {-)   The tool set had a predecessor: when I visited Alan (17-09) some years ago, he showed me his set and the wonderful Severn class build. At first I thought this would be exaggerated but in the end decided to copy his idea. Hopefully he will read this comment, so it is his credits!


@Kim: thanks for posting the better photo, I miss your contribution to the Shannon build. At first it was me following your progress and now I will try to keep the thread alive, though at a very low speed…


@Kiyo: your builds are top class, I follow them with great interest. Your enthusiasm is always showing through and that is the most important thing :-))


@Jörg: As you have started to build a Shannon class model as well, your input is most welcome. If you have more time for modelling, you might well overtake us {-)

Hi Arno, I have been reading through your incredible build and am so impressed with your skills. I'm sure all of the builders on here will totally agree, I have not been on the thread for some time but after talking to Kim recently, I thought I better catch up, I was not disappointed. Thanks for the mention of my tool box, yours is just so good. Be in touch soon........Alan

Work in progress building the windows... The brass hinges from Knupfer were cut to the appropriate size and shape, then painted with Greenstuff World chrome airbrush paint. The cheesehead screws are stainless steel also from Knupfer. The black supports are made of brass sheet cut with a jeweller's saw. I have used Tamiya spray primer for metal before airbrushing the paint layer. The chrome parts need a black gloss layer underneath to get a decent result. I hope to be able to assemble the rest of the item next weekend. I will take my time in order not to spoil the perspex with glue ok2

I could not wait until the weekend {-)  Trial fit, only the side supports will have to be built now until the item is finished. I used Glue n glaze from Deluxe Materials to attach the parts which are not screwed.
