I would worry the tinplate will bend far too easily.
Me? I would go for 5mm brass at your scale.

If using tinplate make sure that the edges are well sealed otherwise they will rust rapidly when wet. (tin makes steel rust faster than normal.)

I do not like to work with brass that much .... use it only if there is no other material suitable ...The bilge keels will not bend nor beark of nor bend.
I will seal the edges with a lot of paint ....

Actually I think, as most of you are building ships the normal way (things break off easily) , the question if the bilge keel will be strong enough amusing ....

Today I used my special tool to work with tinplate .... you can cut the pieces and you can fold them to 90....Very sturdy the 90 brackets. The 2 visible brackets where made to see how it works out.





I will drill one hole in the brackets to screw it into the hull and make the corners rounder....

I nearly bought one of those bend chop and fold tools years ago at the now defunct Axminster Power tool Expo as they had such devices on offer! I am green with envy  :} Lovely job on the keels.




I used to love watching the wood turning demos. I won several bowls made and paid a good few quid for them (Money going to Devon Air Ambulance) and gave them away as raffle prizes at a do a few weeks later. It was like pearls to swine, someone even had the cheek to ask if I had got a lovely spalted beech one at Ikea  <*<

Haven't done much the last 3 weeks ... as said before ... I lost a little bit interest in shipbuilding at the moment. I also was 10 days in France to visit the Bretagne again and a quick tour of the ports in Normandy (I did not visit any military things) and Pas de Calais. Lots of beautiful ports to visit!
So today I spent nearly 2h to finish the bilge keels. They are rather nice!!!



The usual crocodile clamps to hold everything together.



And here the sinished bilge keels. Happy to have them finished. I was not shure to get them right.

Fixing the bilge keels to the hull. I used M2x6 hex screws.



A very nice detail even if it will not be noticed later.





Both sides finished.





The bilge keels are securely fixed with the hull. I made the test!!!



Finished with this important detail. Now I will fabricate the rudder ....

They'll do the job, and be sturdy enough to sit her on if needed.

The bilge keels started to rust. I removed the rust by sanding the keels and a brush with some black matte paint covered everything in no time (leftover from the Cornelia Marie).


I'll finish this project in the future but I have 2 other nice projects waiting to be finished. I need some time off from shipbuilding ....  %) A) I used a Traxxas TRX4 4x4 Chassis Kit to build a RC version of my wifes Suzuki SJ410 offroader she had as her first car. It has a scale of 1/6.6 ... the kit has 4x4, RC 2 gearshifting gearbox, the 2 differentials can be locked by RC.B) I purchased from eBay in the UK a livesteam locomotive from the 60ties ... I need some TLC to get it running again. Its fired by methylated spirits. Its gauge is 3". So I have to build all the track by myself. I just bought another one from eBay from the same antiques shop on eBay. They are rather nice as the builder left them unpainted. So everything is shiny in brass, copper and steel.

Len, I will make a tread on "other builds" in the future ....Just one pic of the steam-loco .... I bought it because it is freelance and has character ...

And one of the Suzuki SJ410 ... very difficult to build from lousy plans and a 1/43 scale model. Actually the chassis kit is 1/10 scale .... this shows how small this Suzuki really is that I can build it in 1/6.6 scale

Yesterday before going to bed I had the idea for my netwinch...no need to put the trawldoor on the net. Just let it slip into the water.The trick is....the net must be on the winch the wrong way. Using a third rope I start with the end of the net. May also work with twin nets...

My good old Meccano netwinch simulator was of great help!

First you let the trawldoors and part of the net into the water. I think the ship should be stopped and/or the prop protected with some device. No need that everything gets into the prop.

Looks ok ... now the net lowered more into the water and maybe e little bit of foward motion iss needed for the next step.
Extend the trawcables to the maximum length. The net is upside down....with some wight in the end it shoud be possible to accelerate a little bit and turn the net under water.

It will then look like this ....

Hauling in the net is easy. Use the net- and trawlwinch together to get the net in. Ship should be stopped or advancing slowly.

At the end everything should be on board nice and tidy....Hope it will work...I will give it a try as it will add to the fun of going to model shows to show of what can be done with a fishtrawler.I think in deeper water the net could hang vertically in the water und then will plenty of acceleration it should turn as it should be...

I reckon that it is worth trying. One of the manufacturers produced a model boat with a daughter boat that can be controlled,
Brian 60 is also working on a ship with a daughter boat in a compartment with rollers!
Kenny (RIP) was working on a complex Bireme, And there are several gun fire simulators in service or being built, so you stand your corner for the Mayhem Fishing fleet Danielle!
