It has occurred to me that as I've made such a good job of my thruster holes that this would be a good time to transfer them into a template for future builds or sharing
Good afternoon Andy, by any remote chance did you ever take a template? And if you did any chance of a pic or copy.
Regards Mick

Sorry but I didn't bother in the end, had any interest been shown at the time I would have done.

Hope these go through. I tried twice.. Perhaps third time lucky.  My way of marking the holes for the bow thruster on Portgarth.  Hope this is relevant. Cheers.  Brian

So pleased it was useful.  I think I got the idea from Model Boats Magazine some time (years!) back. Looking forward to getting back to the building board after some health issues and then moving house, hopefully for the last time!! Enjoy.

Thank you to all who have contributed tho this blog.
Without it i would not have had the courage to start the Portgarth.
Portgarth is my second build, having just completed the Rotterdam.


Is there ayone out there starting or in the early stages of the build?


regards
Ian


I'm just about to start the build having been encouraged by all that I've read on here.  :-))
Regards
Terry

Enjoy the build Terry. Just a note on the drawing (which I used extensively). Remember the long section is drawn on the centerline. In reality the bottom of the hull will be somewhat higher if you are drawing twin motors on to the plan. Caught me out, I'm afraid to say. Happy modelling. Brian

I tend to do a lot of building at the weekends, then ponder what i have achieved during the week, then adapt, redo or accept the following weekend

Thank you this was my first full build and I would do some things differently with hindsight. I might even fit glazing eventually  :-)


My more recent Stevns Arctic was built with the benefit of the experience gained with this
