You did a brilliant job, Andy! She looks wonderful on the open water. :-)) :-)) :-))
I have received my square brass tubes from the Model Shop Leeds yesterday. The delivery was quick, so thanks again for your help.

Arno

Thank you Arno. Still not finished but I'm drawing a line under this after the lifering launchers. Back to 13-15 so may not be posting for most of this year. Would love to see more pictures of your work  :-))

Yes Andy, well done on a lovely model.  I will be taking many details from it to complete my own Portgarth.  I don't know what 13-15 is but look forward to following your next build. Brian

One detail which is quite prominent on the real boat is what I believe to be the accommodation air filter with a gasket sealing hinged lid.
Not a good angle here unfortunately

I've resorted to styrene to simulate this and I yet need to create the look of a filter



This will be attached with cockpit glue when painted

Ive always felt that these very nice manufactured life rafts were just a bit too long to compare with Portgarth equipment so I have just cut one in half and rejoined it. Just needs a fettle and recoat of appliance white

Well, yes Andy, but what a result!
With all the adjustments you had to make I'd say the result is outstanding. Congratulations  :-))

Thank you Ray much appreciated
Many people are using the blog for help and reference which is the whole point of sharing and the help received here at times was catalytic in sending me the right way, so many thanks to those  :-))
I want some nice photos now to turn into canvas prints  :-)
I will post them some time  O0
Now a workshop tidy and next job.


Edit
I am now using WhatsApp for those who want specific photo help
Pm your mobile if you want photos or any other help


The thread could do with a good deal of editing to condense it

One regards the RIB
This is converted from this ebay item. The earlier pages cover how to convert this in pictures although quite spread out.
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MMB-Resin-cast-model-inflatable-boat-dinghy-kit-145mm/283425639519



Still not finished but this is after application of matt lacquer over the latest incarnation. Still lots to do but saved for another day.






Then this grating. This is from MMM but not listed on their website. You will find it at their shop or at boat shows




Then there is the position of the bow thruster. I did not take measurements. I just fitted it where it looked OK (Portgarth does not have one)
However if it helps the centre line of mine is 95mm from the front edge of the Skeg. post no 32 for reference

The kort positions
These are detailed at post number 12

She's a beaut Andy. I can't wait to get mine on the water.  Imagine the possibilities of going sideways with individual motor control and bow thruster.  BTW I justified my bow thruster by arguing that because I did not have the Z drives I needed more directional control and the only way was to install the bow thruster. Might not be strictly correct but good enough for me!  Happy sailing. Brian

Cheers Brian. I have enough pictures today to pick a couple of nice large prints and perhaps a canvas  8)  There are a few extra signs added but she's done with apart from maintenance and enjoying sailing .

An absolutely first class build - the process from start to finish is fascinating!

Thank you Phil  :-)
Sorry it is such a long thread.
I wish I had access to edit as Im sure at least ten pages could be culled to make it more fluid and less disjointed.
Watching your build now  :-))

Good question Andy, I don't know yet. I am thinking about the "Maggie M" or the "Yorkshireman" tug.
