I tell you what - that steel mesh was worth every penny.  Looks great and also looks very true to scale too  O0

Yes I bought a few sheets of different grades knowing I'd use it eventually but for my tug builds.
Not especially expensive and I posted it in What have you bought this week?  months back  :-))
The filter isn't exactly like for like but close enough for me  :-)
Cheers

Last photo today. Got to get ready for launch tomorrow


Managed to recreate the raised surround that is part of the cabin. Only minor detail left to add before paint

Pump is now connected up and outlet fitted to coincide with an actual one on the yellow line








The pump was proven successful today
There was no noticeable evidence of water along the keel but clearly evidence of water in the suction pipe.
So it does the job without a fuss
The finished model will of course not let water in

Difficult to spray with 5 colours but my filter is not fixed making it a little easier

My Danish friend Ole Bodker is really going to town on EXTRA details to his Speedline kit. This has lifted the bar considerably so I am myself trying a little harder even though I know my eyesight will not allow me to match his brilliance  %%  His pictures can be viewed on the Facebook group.


Meanwhile I have emphasised the details a little more on this



Primer on this highlights the grill which will simply be Orange with the flap in red.





I'm focusing on port side details for a while











Modified Speedline leftovers



I will have to scratch make the brass fittings

Thought I'd try this today, nothing like mixing it up to keep interested.


Some sheet I bought as a mixed bundle for stock







Mixed with 4 pieces of 1mm styrene to look like real item. PVA to create weld lines. Bolts yet to fit before primer

A tip for those who haven't assembled ! The side panel comes with too small an opening to fit the fitting flush so consider this early on.


It took some effort to open it out in situ.



Fitting from the back view

A reminder for you to buy the photo CD from Kim (all proceeds to RNLI) it really is priceless.


Using this as a guide



Bit by bit literaly recreate


I don't expect things to work out mm perfect so long as it looks plausible

Super build as usual! Just a heads up for other Shannon builders, the later boats have three sections of conduit running down the stbd side of the mast, it was a real pain to get all the cables down two! I guess it would make it easier to make the lights etc on the models easier.  Had the miss-fortune of wiring three masts for these!

I am sure you must have posted it at least once before (but I can't find it!) but how & where does one contact Kim about the CD?
Many thanks.
David.

Top job on a difficult part.  I really like the way the soft solder imitates the welds something silver solder couldn't do.  Keep the photos coming  :-))

Today I want to fill those big holes in the cabin. No not the windows {-)  the fuel fillers :-)




Incidentaly I love this drill, it's so smooth and with the aftermarket chuck very straight forwards with even the tiniest drill bits



Here I just drilled 0.8mm
Using 1.5mm styrene for the main structure and 0.75mm for the filler plate




EDIT just in time
These are the smallest bolts I can get hold of from Knupfer. They are a very snug push fit in the 0.8mm holes

Andy,
The scratch built detail being added is really bringing your model 'to life'. Also, the build stages for the detail are allowing others to 'copy' - hence helpful to newcomers to the scratch building approach. As for the Survivors' Gantry, that is a little work of art!
Thanks for the 'promo' for the DVD of photos - two have been received and 'burnt off'. Into the Post tomorrow. Another £15 for the RNLI at Dungeness.
There will be a PM on its way to you later this evening.
Continue enjoying your build - it shows through! :-))
Kim

Thank you Kim
Yes I'm really enjoying developing ways to do things, it just seems to happen for me  {-)

NOTE for CD buyers. Be sure to transfer the folders to your PC hard drive. They will view much faster from there than from a CD

Not sure how I'll make the filler caps yet tho  %%


I started this morning with the intention of copying a surplus Speedline fuel filler but as soon as I referred to real photos I gave that idea up as they are very different


For general info, some people struggle with the Knupfer site being German but if you use Google Chrome browser it will change it all to English  :-))


Personally I pay by IBAN in euros but they do take Paypal
