Beautiful work, once in a while I find a build that I truly admire and yours is one of them. Keep up the good work.

Hello,
I've just worked on liferaft. I did not succeed in mould and resin. So I put each one in my drill and shape it with sand paper.
They are 8 the same number as  counter measure box. They are stocked  inside

Hi,


Just asking -for the liferaft cannisters did you wrap polystyrene strip round the body?  I never had a problem doing this for years but recently I am finding the polystyrene strip breaks instantly as the solvent is applied.  I have maybe been making polystyrene things for 20 years and never had a problem, but the last 6 months it seems to make no difference what solvent or polystyrene sheet / extrusions I use, everything goes "ping" and breaks when solvent is applied under bending.  I am also finding the same chemical attack when I use CA instead -it never used to happen.  Perhaps the chemical mixes have changed?  Much respect to folk (and you!!!) who can still make it work.


Thanks,

Rich

I have had that issue with CA, I suspect it's the glue causing the plastic to go brittle while its stressed from bending around a curved form.  Have not had that issue using Tamyia solvent cement.

Could I suggest rapping the plastic strip around a suitable diameter metal rod(I usually used the shaft of a drill bit). Tape in place and pour over boiling water. The heat forms the plastic to the curve and reduces the chance of breaking when glueing in place.

With the greatest of respects, I'm intrigued how our modeller does it.  I'm not inexperienced, actually I tried the Tamia solvent for the first time recently and I find it the most difficult solvent to deal with -it's very aggressive, clearly designed for plastic model kits.  I'm in France these days also so no easy access to the usual solvents and glues that "just work" over the last 20 years.

Hello,
As you can see on photos, I work on rails. I drilled 0.5 mm holes. I wanted to complet before hull paints.

Now that is amazing!
That is some skill will a soldering iron, I’m still practicing my skills on larger items and plan on getting to a standard to solder the masses of iron work on my Invincible’s bridge but even that is bigger than your exquisite stanchions.

Likewise I am impressed with your brass work and soldering. The rails and their awkward shapes are fabulous!
