If there is to be no glazing, is there a risk of water retention and possible damage from prolonged immersion of joins and corners etc if not removed fully Andy?

I ask because you are obviously putting double the effort into this build than perhaps should have been required, and I would hate for your extra efforts to have a shorter lifespan than they deserve.

I would defiantly have windows, if the boat  is out and starts to rain, or someone gets carried away with water cannons its going to get wet in there.
I have never used glue, to stick windows i use Stix 2 3mm double sided tape  good stuff no messy windows :-))  ballastanksian said it all why spoil all that great work you are doing.

Thank you both
Iím not ruling it out but for now things are clearer in my mind without including that.
The inside of the wheelhouse will be no more vulnerable than the deckhouse or deck, it will all be painted.
I wonít be doing rain  {-) Iíll stay home and build something :-)) 


Thanks for the double sided tape tip John
The thought of making 24 windows is too much to contemplate just now  {:-{

Andy......I am not sure what your issue is, but I have taken on one lost sole....missyd from Switzlerland and posted her hull images in her thread here tonight [Switzerland to Australia...then back to a UK server  O0]

What you need is another MBM member to pick up the ball & run with it to help you until this posting glitch is resolved......is there not a local who can help?

Looks lovely Andy.

I thought (when I saw the first picture) that it was a piano.      {-)

Will we see her in the water at Balne 2018?
    I would like to get a photo alongside my Pegasus (chopped Maltby hull).
            Can't wait for next year's towing.
               Cheers, Pete

This is my almost complete masters chair prior to paint. I just have to make some armrests from styrene that will simply glue to the backrest. I've used FUSION to attach the seat base and back to the brass.

Where the clock and barometer are is I believe the cable way for the kit on the mast etc. It will serve the same purpose if I do illuminate it.








Leeds model shop has started selling wood by Amarti? or Amati??


Anyway it is beautiful walnut and really cheap. The duck board is made from it and needs no further treatment

The exact same thing crossed my mind when I saw that picture.
And you will need two keyboards if you're after an impressive performance. Way to go  :-)) :}

Meanwhile while the garage sale is in progress......



I've made a start on the mast platform. I must crack on as a lifeboat is imminent.


This is all make it up as you like, no idea how I'll fit it yet.

Re: MMM Portgarth build......cooking on gas!
« Reply #949 on: December 19, 2017, 09:37:37 PM »

Mast access platform went like a charm right off the cuff beyond my wildest dreams.
I used a gas iron to avoid having to contact the brass parts and move them.
Using spacers wedges and all manner of improvisation I made a successful evening  8)


The only points that will eventually be glued are the three legs of the mast, everything else just looks like its fixed.


I started by slotting the mast to take the frame but I filed a C section in the frame so it doesn't interfere with the mast possible cable route
