Cheers John
Now I'm making ladders to be lashed across the uprights of the RIB frame.
Not sure if it'll be a double extension yet



EDIT
This took less than the time that the edit/modify post tab still works.
No glue or solder and tight enough.

Andy, your tug looks the part and she is a real beauty on the water! You might integrate the case you have made into your kitchen?! {-) {-)
I like the idea of constructing the ladder. Where did you get the profiles from?

Arno

Thanks Richard :-)) 
Hi Arno thanks   "Kitchen"  {-)  won't be grey for long  :-)
It is just stock K&S



Square but it looks fine



The mast ladder was from brass strip



Also the RIB frame ladder

Thanks Andy. I have just placed on order on e**y, the seller is modelshopleeds, so probably your supplier. Better get it done before Brexit kicks in....

Yes my local shop and I use their mail order too  %%
As good as Cornwall models for speed and price but not as big a product range.
I got Graupner 1:32 crew figure from LMS at under £6 each way better than anyone else
FYI I used 1.6mm brass rod too

These have been kicking around for so long I wasn't going to bother but I've cut them down so they'd look appropriate in place
My dilemma is paint finish to look plausible? any ideas welcome






This location is constantly wet when making headway so I plan to glue with Everbuild adhesive Stan :-))

Very tidy ladder construction Andy :-)) .........but am not familiar with the snow shoe shaped ladder appliance


Is it a boarding ladder?...or a slip fit into the extension ladder top rails? [extension to the extension etc]

This morning I've attached the white metal anchors and I think she looks better with than without.
Attached using Everbuild clear.

Anchors really finish the bows off nicely Andy.  Looks great.

Cheers Brian. I'm currently attempting to make the deckhouse roof lifering launchers. I'm finding it impossible to copy the original but hope this will look ok and work too.
So far

Now I've added stops for stored and deployed positions. Ready for primer I think and then the mirror image to produce. Likely locate it with cockpit glue as it has been quite solid on several previous fixings like the deck bollards for example






Reverse side. Pivot is a 1.6mm stainless hex bolt that will be fixed with threadlock at a suitable tension.

I've had to revise this to have sufficient clearance from the liferaft. Balne moor tomorrow so that's it for this week.
Is it beer o'clock yet?
