Hi Kenny, does the item you have painted silver come off?  Am I right and that it covers or fits into the hole in the deck above the rudder.  I was wondering what it looked like underneath?

Yes, I always have an inspection cover over the rudder linkages for ease of maintenance.
The metal case is glued to the box below which lifts off from an internal ridge secured to the deck.  There's enough room for fingers to access, should the need arise.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Kenny I will go and construct the box and see how that works out.  OK, I have another question!!!!
How long is the main mast from deck to top of the mast?  I have the mast aft the funnel and I think most of the fittings but no main mast or fittings.  I shall plunder my Billings fittings for lights etc.

I bought the boat from a lady who was disposing of her late brother's effects and she thought I had paid way too much for it!  But there was also a pile of books and a Monoperm super still in its box as well.  It was a close contest on ebay and I did not live too far away, so I was able to collect it.

I expect something else will come up I have not thought of yet Kenny, so your help is most appreciated, it would be nice if I could borrow some plans for a month from somebody, assuming there were any.

Hi Buccaneer I have another 555 motor for my next boat.

Slightly off subject did anyone read Glynn Guest's piece on esc's in Model Boats magazine this month?  I could kick myself for not trying this years ago!

I have the complete instruction along with all the plans.      :o

So if any one wants any details or a copy of my photographed copies ( which came out at 200 mega bytes for the lot) then let me know and I will email them to you. 
@ Roy.  The mast is two and half times the length of the funnel  (both from deck to tops)

Hope this helps

Hi Roy,

I will post the plans to your personal email.  As mentioned above they are rather large in the megabytes stake so I'll send them in several Emails.

Cheers

You should be able to reduce the file sizes without losing any significant detail Ken

Hi Colin,

I have now sent them off in batches of 2.  I did think of reducing their size but wanted the quality of the details to remain as the paper was  'browning' with age.  I wait with baited breath as to the result of the transmission.

I must say it made me feel like building her again as she's a lovely little ship.  Seems like ages since I built her  (with your kind help)

A word of warning as regards rudders and using M2 grub screws with hex to secure them: .9mm allen keys are darn difficult to get in the hole and in the confined space of an access hatch, ny-on impossible.

I think there is what looks like access via the lift of rear deck.  It's so long since I built her.

Hi Ken thank you very much for producing the photos, very much appreciated.  I am just after positioning the detail and the plans should solve any issues I have.
I shall print them in the morning thanks again,
best regards.

Hi Ballstankasian, I have made a brass tiller with a collar soldered on and the allen key access is off centre to allow access.  Good point though as maintenance is always needed and I assume that if it can go wrong it will go wrong!

Hi Ken, I have printed out the plan I wanted (came out quite clear) and made the box section mounting for the grating feature at the very stern of the boat.  I have made this to glue onto a filler / cover that is a tight fit in the tiller access hole.

Next problem is reducing the thick spray on paint which has obscured the plating on the hull.  Seems to sand paper off we shall see!  Good news is that it is an excellent match for Halfords red primer.

 :-))   Glad you're a happy bunny.

The red primer is my favourite paint.  It used to be called  Red Oxide.   I wonder what they removed when the oxide name disappeared.  ?

Cheers

If you sand off the paint,you might sand off some of the plating detail?  Might be better to chemical strip paint off then re-apply thin layer?

Hi Chris, understand what you say but I am using a piece of sandpaper very lightly and the paint is coming off in a fine powder.  The rivet detail is starting to show through and looks good.  From the way it is coming off I think I am going to have to seal it with a lacquer spray.
On the other hand it has overlaid the matt black on the upper hull and looks very good as rust!
Thanks for the interest,
regards Roy
