Nice and I see no longer available. At 48" its not one for me but look forwards to seeing yours built  :-))


Timbo!  The seller added a vice for me after I emailed them so saved the postage.
I bought this too as a better option

Had a funeral this morning but spent the rest of today repainting and replacing shelving. No power tools arrived  :((



However the tool room means more room after a reorganisation in the build room  :}  more to do but it'll be ready to get stuck in after the holidays

WOW whats your miss's think about you having a workshop in the house Andy??? Or have you got to wipe your feet when you go out the door onto the landing? I see you got a plan on the wall have you got in contact with Damen yet so you can swap you decor in your new workshop as you'll find it more advantageous to your build !!!

Yes Jim it is a swivel vice made by Stanley (sub 20) but I just bought a rather dearer proxxon that is better quality

I am pretty sure our mate Jim was eluding to this yellow device which I assumed was some sort of vertical shaft rotary sanding device with a fixed table, however had not seen :o such a device on the market

Good morning. Here I have some very nice pictures sent by our new member Don  :-))   Thank you very much for sharing  :-)
I see you did all the curves  8)   I'd very much like to know how you did those deckhouse side windows ?


and errrrrr the wheelhouse window frames  :-)













I love that stand too!  8)

Good morning well morning over here.
The window frames are all made out of brass strip bent the right shape
Then soulderd the ends.
Glued them in with thick cyanoacrylate then sanded all together with disk sander
To about 1/16 pertrusion.

Thanks that is very useful  :-))

Next I'm on with remodelling the stern AGAIN.
This is how MMM produced it for many years and it is completely wrong just like the concave bow.
So this which drops rather than rises as it ought to is getting a makeover.

As yet undecided but I feel I must completely remove the rubbing strakes (and fit some ] section) as moulded as they are neither use nor ornament in the size they are for attaching rubber of an appropriate scale.


Meanwhile the most immediate plan is to open the rest of the wash ports and fit the rest of the gunnels
