Another three photos showing the port side of my Arctic build this is the second coat of primer. A couple of places  still needs a bit more rubbing down.

Hi Howard as you know I like to try and a make the model as near to the real vessel as possible, that's only achievable if you have access to lots of good photos. The only photos that I have are ones that I found on the internet.The slope on the bollards was quite easy to achieve I cut a small v shape into the bollard then bent to the angle I needed then filled with solder. here are a couple of photos, the bollard is just pushed into place at the moment.

Chip....those solid Bollards look good :-)) ......are they tapped M3 from underneath?


My real question.......with 20+kg pushing along, is there any thought of some sort of metal [brass] protection U angle plate for those vulnerable leading edges of the bow lower plate?

Hi Derek, yes the bollards will be threaded and bolted into position, I haven't thought about fitting any reinforcement on the leading edge as I filled the inside of the keel, this normally is quite strong. To be perfectly honest by the time I get her finished I will be too old to lift her into the water  {-)

I haven't done much on the Stevns since I started doing some work on the Our Lass but managed together the top coat on the bollards.

Know that the trawler is up to a stage in the build that I am happy to put to one side for the moment I am going to do a bit more on the Arctic build.
While working on the trawler i kept looking at the anchor outlets on the tug they did not look right, I have decided that they need to be made slightly bigger, this will keep me occupied over the weekend plus I have given a bit of thought to how the big bow fender is going to be attached.
I have cut 1.5mm brass to fit into the bow bulwark, this fitment is silver soldered as it needs to be strong. the fender will be fitted with nylon inserts, these will be tapped and threaded so the fender can be fitted securely.

Managed to make the anchor outlets a bit bigger over the last couple of days, took a bit longer than I thought due to the deck being fitted.
a lot happier with them know.
