Hi All did the water test this weekend and yes I have a leak, started to put weight in to get her down to water line then in it came I thought I had made a good seal round the thruster shows what thought did <:( I will have to sort this asap.
Just like to say about us modellers how some can be kind and thought full T888 gave some of his casting he made for his Clyde to help me complete my Clyde, what a kind chap he is  :-))

A very neat job in deed, I'm now thinking about my build and could I do the same in 1/72 scale. In the past I've always used brass etched netting, which is great but a little 2 dimensional and not as realistic as I would like. Seeing your work has me thinking, Jon

Thanks T888.
Gingyer I used what is called cross stitch material it comes in two scales and think the smaller one would do for a class 1/72 scale ships, the one I used is a little bit to large but not far from scale and it does look better than having brass ones.
I cut them to size then dyed them black with water based paint watered down see pictures. then stitched to the frames and will varnish them to seal.

Looks like I might need to visit my mum and see if she still has cross stitch material.


I will need it for my very slowly moving Clyde

Stu, may be to late, but this is a picture of the New nets that the manufactures sent me. ( But after I'd finished my model and which I've updated to the new fit). I did question if the netting would be white when fitted they said it would, but after time at sea more like and off white.

Wish I had that picture some time back, that could be achieved but still happy with what I have done although I could still do it as they are not fixed yet but its been a lot of work I shall see. I need to get other bits done for now.
this should help other Clyde builders with ideas.

Well that is a brilliant use of material I never thought of using. You’ve inspired me to scrap the etched brass items I was planning to get for my 1/72 HMS Protector project I started a few years back.

LoL I recognised the cross stitch material straight away, used it in the past for grilles etc. I thought it looked rather good for you as it has some texture to it which outweighs the thickness of other options.


Looks great.

Did a bit more work on the top section, made all of the aerials, connected the radars up. its amazing how much is involved and how long it takes but that's modelling.
