   Brick layers line is good. What about the Afon Alaw you have for Saturday?

Thanks John
The Afon isn't built to tow as it has too much deck furniture. When my Portgarth is finished I may dismantle the whole caboodle and build it my way as I already acquired plans etc. :-))


EDIT actually it would be more sensible to sell it on and buy a hull

Following on from our telephone conversation earlier Andy please find attached photo's that are to hand of my Portgarth model as I'm still waiting for the sun to come out here in Bristol for another photo session, I'll see if there's anything else that be handy for your build and bring it up to Doncaster.

Cut all the panels and offer them in position and once your happy with the shape of the wheelhouse it's then you mark the cut-outs for the windows as then the windows are parallel with the joint of the wheelhouse, I hope that makes sense???

Yes I understand that Kevin but I meant the window frames? Is it styrene or something etc


Or should I say surrounds?

The way I done mine was to cut the perspex to the shape of the cut-out then fix plasti-card to the outside edge in doing this you're forming a rebate and then your glue it into position and this way you've got a nice joint on the outside edge.

Next up for general circulation!
Resin brushes. The ones from hobby craft are cheap but as reviewers say the bristles come out in use  >>:-(


I tracked down ones by "Great planes" as sold at Leeds Model shop but LMS want 25p each and would only drop to 33 per box of 144 which I thought was a miserly discount.
I just bought the same by mail order for 27 delivered  :-))
No personal connection I swear!! just sharing FYI

Never going to match the authenticity of Kevin's but Will do for now and as it is easily replaced I have the option in future
This could be a finished section in very little time with a Matt lacquer hatch satin lacquer steel and a nice canary yellow D area finished with the SS socket screws  :-)

I doubt that but perhaps John will tutor me  :-))


Just now the decks depend on this winch motor arriving tomorrow. I need to make it function and fit it in a manner that I can remove it for service if required. Much paxolin involved  {-) .
I'm looking forwards to remodelling the washports and starting on the ribs

Here we go Mike!  5rpm

Literally just fits with 1mm clearance and I can remove with just two socket screws on the main hatch shelf  :-)

That has been quite a tense hour
The worry being that I made the mistake of drilling and tapping the Kort hatches earlier and if I didn't position the deck spot on I'd have a serious misalignment. However it has gone well with all surplus resin scraped off and hatches fit perfect. I've also produced a stencil to spray the yellow danger area.
I've been painstaking in ensuring that no edges were missed with resin as I don't want any water penetration between the ply and the paxolin.
Please offer me suggestions for the Gog as the MMM one isn't suitable for a working model

That's my main hatch now awesomised  {-)  absolutely delighted and when the sealing gasket is fitted it will be a perfect flush finish.
Now I can treat the hatch as a separate unit and paint finish it  :-) 


Note to self . Remember the battery screwdriver!!


Edit  I think I'll paint the crew heads too but leave the hex socket unpainted

Looking good Andy. The winch motor though a touch noisey looks like it does exactly what you wanted it to do.

What is a Gog?

Thanks Ian
It will wear in and be less noisy I believe but it sounds louder because the sound is resonating through the bench. I'm not sure it's what I want but if it's good enough for Mike (Butts)  :-)) 
EDIT however Mike's is a larger circumference drum but I could not have accommodated that anyway so it will have to do. Quite fortunate really that the size I made happened to JUST fit.


The gog is the iron hoop at the rear of the deck that tethers the tow line to prevent it going too far to port of starboard. I stand to be corrected tho  {-)

Further more I calculate my drum will wind 625mm per minute which I guess will do?I'm not sure how far Butts has gotten with his winch but this is what I'm doing.
This is my rope guide hole and I've countersunk it on the underside



Here it adds strength as a bonus and the rope exits and is directed over the dummy deck winch and off to la derriere . I'm going to fit a guide tube above deck so deck wash don't go down there.





Component shop must love me  {-)  and I'm not finished

My chosen deck & roof finish.
Left Halfrauds red primer and right with matt lacquer





Subtle Satin on Renault royal blue. Looks rather lighter here than to the naked eye

Without trying I've managed to not make it look perfect  {-) but I'm happy with it  :-))  and when it's gone completely matt it will do me  :-)
