Looking very neat and tidy, I do like the symmetry of everything keeps the weight perfectly even and that access is only something I could dream of on the Smit  :-)) Some excellent modelling Andy can't wait to see the deck and superstructure

Thanks Paul


First steps in making template/designing hatches.
I'm considering paxolin for the main hatch by doublig the deck thickness around the hatch then using paxolin for the hatch flange. This I can drill and tap and use countersunk stainless socket screws.
A hatch for each kort still to draw

Yes Brian and the towing lead will be on the hatch, the hatch stops just short of the winch position

I was looking at your aerial view photo and was wondering if you are fitting any more deck supports

A number of ideas in mind before gluing the deck on

Good :-)) I am really over the top when it comes to deck supports, i like your idea about using two layers for the deck hatches.

Gluing the deck over the Kort linkages is a rather finite action %).......

So just tinking ok2...you could consider....

1. rotate the PORT L lever 90 degrees anticlockwise
2. rotate the STDB I lever 180 degrees anticlockwise
3. marginally shorten the length of the connection arms, so there is no binding between the servo control rod on full helm to STDB

This would then place the interconnection link arm in very close proximity to the rear end of the deck hatch and allow thumb & forefinger access to the interconnection link arm yokes an pins

Re: MMM Portgarth build......DECK WINCH
« Reply #266 on: April 11, 2017, 07:25:10 PM »

After speaking to Nick? I think it is at Balne Moor, I want to fit a winch motor.
It must be geared so the shaft cannot rotate unless powered.
It is then operated by a 3 position switch on the transmitter (I have 2 of those)
From the offerings here of MFA geared 12 volts what would be the best rpm? All replies appreciated

I am thinking the 274rpm?

Trial kort hatch shelf
I've ordered 3mm paxolin for the covers

Knocked up a pedestal for the receiver that doubles as a cable guide

Just a tiny bit of filler to finish the rectification once the primer is hard.






Sorry to go back but I've since seen another picture of a Portgarth stern and this is inherent in the mold so you either live with it or do as I did.
I'm happy with mine but would rather have not needed to do the extra in time and material
The offending defect would be on the port side here if not rectified.

tis a shame about that hull you would have thought they could sort that on the mould so that is doesn't happen in future  :(( but you are right to correct it now as if your like me you would be kicking yourself later for not doing it.

I had a similar problem with acess to yhe korts on my eldergarth....my fix for this was to cut 2 circles above the korts and simply glued a fixing ring below deck and simply sealed them closed with double sided tape ...tge ultra thin stuff like selotape ....essy to remove and proven to be 100% watertight

Thanks Dave
Similar but not circular
One on left is the shelf to be fitted under the 3mm deck skin
One on right is template for cutting 2 hatches 3mm thick which will be secured with 3mm countersunk stainless screws tapped into the shelf
It should look industrial like a deliberate access plate to the shottles

Nothing so satisfying as getting paid while being creative
I think it's called productive non profit making  {-)
