I've turned her around now to bring the starboard side up to speed.
The bulwarks are nice and firm even before adding ribs.(thanks chipchase) :-))   The beauty of lining with styrene is it gives something to glue to with the styrene capping which is also very solid. Must be a right chore with P38 filler or balsa as some do








I'm making the bow and stern gunwales from 2mm styrene sheet. All the ribs too  :-))

I'm not rushing here as I'm reliably informed that a tug of the same design works out of Liverpool and we are going there early June on holiday.
If I phone Smit in advance there's a very good chance they'll let me aboard and I'll be armed with camera AND tape measure  {-)
Thanks (Kevgarth)

Re: MMM Portgarth build....Them deck house corners!

Turned my attention back to the Deckhouse. My plan to do the front and sides in one piece became immediately obvious that it was not doable as the ply is not wide enough and it will only bend across its width. So I've attempted a joint in the centre rather than in three sections.
After sanding the formwork perfectly to ensure contact on all surfaces I steamed the ply where it was to be bent and held it in place while it dried off a bit. There is no way to clamp this in place so I had to use CA for quick dry and hold.








Excess trimmed off and sanded.






Quite pleased and I believe quite rare on Portgarths but worth the effort.

Since receiving actual photos it is apparent that that front slope does not quite slope in one swoop but stops short of the front wall and levels out. I can rectify this with the addition of a triangular strip of wood across the front edge

That'll save a lot of bother.

The wheel house is turning into a nice piece of wood working. I like the curves.  :}

Disk sanders are so useful. I bought one ten years ago and despite sanding a knuckle soon after buying it, I have never looked back. In fact, I only recently changed the disk. I have a small pece of MDF that I place on the bed wen sanding small pieces so they don't get pulled down between the bed and the spinning disk to their destruction.

I reccomend you use a vacuum cleaner (Wickes sell a basic one that makes a good one) as an extractor and make sure to clean any wood dust out of it before sanding any metal as it can cause a fire, as testafied by Northbrook college (West Sussex) losing two extractor systems in as many years due to morons doing just this despite being told not to.

Good idea.

My best friend designed a system of debris removal from his bench and workplace floor using the same hoover. He linked two openings,one on the floor in the base of the bench, and one at bench top level with ducting and then had a plug for the upper one. It saved disconnecting the hoover from a machine and prevented the ubiquitous damage that a flailing hose will cause  {:-{

That table saw is light yeards ahead of some you can get for full size carpentary! Well worth the money, and looked after, it will outlive it's owner.

I think I wish I'd invested in Proxxon exclusively but for now I'll see how everything works out as I build yet another craft room. My cheapo silverline pillar drill does the job just fine but a proxxon is so much more refined.
I doubt I would find use for the milling machine Tim but its a lovely and the price isn't an issue. :-))

I could do with an extraction system with at least 6 branches . I might have to make a manifold.

When this bag is full it pays for a Maltby hull which thus far seems very intangible

A bit slow lately as life gets in the way so just another angle shot to bring the topic back in line.
