I started building the different hatches. First I cut out the base in the wooden deck an after that I build the border and the hatch. When ready  will place the border and the hatch in the wooden deck.

Thanks for your help. I dont know why the text was so small in the posting?


Thanks for all the kind words and all the views. I really enjoy building this fishingship but I have neglected to post more often. Now I have settled in my new job and education I hope to post more regularly.

Hi Kees, lovely work and paint job yet again.
I'm not sure what the 2 earlier hatches are as yet - the fronts have got me a bit confused.
The one with the ports in is what we would call a companion way, leading down to the 'mess' (crews quarters.)

Hi Kees, that really is lovely work on the fittings and especially the mast work which suits the build so well.
You may know by now that the probable reason for her sinking is that on 1st February 1917 the Germans declared what was known as the Intensified Submarine Campaign which meant, roughly, that any and every ship was liable to be torpedoed and sunk without warning. Just to show the level, the figures just for April 1917 was 545,000 tons of British shipping was sunk and together with allied, neutral and fishing craft the total came to 875,000 tons.Part of the reason for the campaign was the existence of the so-called Mystery Ships or Q ships which led the U boat captains to become a lot more nervous for the rest of the war.CheersTony
