Nothing like Christmas to get a bit of relaxing modelling in.   Decided to build the deckhouse before starting the lifeboat davits. Happy with the result but this is attempt two. Attempt one was a failure , I still have things to learn about building in Styrene, attempt one taught me that you can't build a piece like this using only 1mm sheet.  It is just too flexible and will warp out of square , I found that if the base is 2mm and I also made the spine wall 2mm (bits you can't see) the result is sound and does not go out of shape. Live and learn.

Baldrick,
Very neat  ,Styrene is a material that I haven't worked with apart from the Davit on my model which has lasted for the past 40 years, I am much happier Butchering Metal.


Happy New Year to one and all

Bowling season is almost over, time to get back to Cervia while eyesight holds up.  Ease myself with some small bits, brass lanterns for the navigation lights (from scratch of course ).

Thanks Rick .
 This is windlass as it stands , was going to add spindles and wheels for the brakes when I can work out a way of making them so they will be reasonably strong


cheers Balders
