Hi Danielle whats is the diameter of your rudder post?  Maybe someone on the forum could send you some if they have some brass rod spare.  Then I guess you could cut a slot in it and fit it over the rudder.  Just a suggestion to maybe get you through this time of scarce material.
Thanks a lot for you offer Mark. Its a treaded rod M4...I used it on all my models and its ok....

Now my friends ... the rudder is finished. I have just to clean the parts before I paint them.
Pic1...Rudder soldiered and ready for the next step.
Pic2...The parts I need to make the attachement to the rudder axle
Pic3...I even used a very old mini anvil...
Pic4...Now that is looking fine for me...the 1st set took me 2h to finish (not so nicely) only to loose one part and so I redid everything in 1h much nicer work....
Pic5---6....ready for action!!
Pic7...the M2.5 hex screws are essential...at the moment they are rather loose so I can take it apart again...

Thanks a lot Andy!!!! :-))
Mark...I did find 4mm round brass profile in my new storage tubes....it was a little bit hidden but I managed to make the rudder post perfectly with it. O0
Now the rudder is 100% finished! It was one of the best things I did as model ship builder.
Pic1...2: Shows how small these 2.5mm hex scres and nuts are...spanner is a 3.5. It was important for me to do it this way.
Pic3: First fitting of the rudder....This is with the treaded M4 rod....wasn't happy with it.
Pic4: End version of the rudder. The rudder post is screwed into the upper flange and secured with M4 nut.

Very nice and very tidy miniature engineering  :-))   This ship is going to be amazing!

Thanks a lot Mark!!! :-)) ;)
Today I started to make the keel protection .... all trawlers from brittany have some sort of protection because some of them stay on sand/mud when the tide is low.I have to make it by stacking 4x0.5mm tinplate together and will then solder it together.
Pic 1-3: Mark and cut the tinplate with my special tool.
Pic 4: I used a L-shaped aluprofile to get the pieces together.
Pic 5: Ready to get soldiered. Everything is held together with M3 screws. The holes will be used to fix the part on the keel. Its heavy!

Got the brass profiles today! Very fast delivery indeed...  :}
Pic 1 shows the first profile bent to fit the keel.
Pic 2 without the right tools you can't bend the profile at all. Luckily I got this pair of bending devices from my apprenticeship. Useful they are.
Pic 3 Gas torch and normal solder for electronics with flux. Heat the profile and if the temperature is alright you may solder severl cms in one go.
Pic 4 its massive and heavy. Will add some weight very low. Any weight is welcome with a model this big.
Pic 5 Cleaned ... looks ok. At the tip it will fit the keel much better in the end.

Thats a nice fit for such thick metal top job  :-))   How are you going to secure it to the bow - screws?

Mark, I will use a lot of screws. Did the same with the N. Loredana in a much smaller scale. I drilled the holes already.

Yea thats the same as I did - I also sat the metal on a bed of epoxy resin just in case any water got between the keel and the metal.

Ok! I normally use a lot of wet paint between the brass and wood. I never use Epoxy on my boats.

Work is done....went well and I am happy with the result.
Pic 1: I used these useful little clamps to hold the brass profiles together during soldiering.
Pic 2: 1.120kg is the weight. I hoped for some more... {-)
Pic 3: I also redid the lower bearing for the rudder...
Pic 4&5: Before fixing it permanently to the keel.
Pic 6: I used really thick acrylic paint on the keel to get things watertight.
Pic 7&8: The paint that is coming out under the brass profile is used as paint on the hull
Pic 9: Black matte acrylic paint is used over the new part.
I must say that the additional protecting keel is making the hull much better. The wooden keel was not the right shape. So in the end it cost me a few hours work and some hard earned swiss francs to get it done.

Saturday....I did some painting. And I got some round 4mm brass profile from the reopened DIY superstore. No I wont visit it again as long as this silly Coronavirus pandemia joe is around.
OK I did some sanding and put on some matte black.

Hi Danielle. You are doing some brilliant model engineering there. I always like to see some quality metalwork.


I am pleased for you at getting to the point where you can pop some paint on. I always feel it is a signpost that you are getting somewhere with a project.

You're right...I was at a point where I did not go ahead with this model. But I found a way to restart everything...but I do other projects in between. I built a kitchen cupboard and actually I do the finishing on a guitar kit.
