Thank you Cornish  :-)  encouragement always welcome


There are so many things to make that often there is delay in deciding what next but that keeps it interesting. Being in a rush is definately a big negative to be avoided


The head protector cushion made and fitted.








Edit
I forgot this picture earlier for other builders. I fitted a 7mm deep styrene all around the inner edge to space the lower lids just proud and then sanded them flush. Total thickness 13mm or so



More pictures

    Having built a few boats, my lifeboats being a Model Slipway Trent and my last boat, a M S Tamar, which I donated to Padstow RNLI,  I can appreciate the work require to produce a good model.  I modified my Tamar with opening stern door, lowerable mast and aerials,and working radar and lights.
    I always had plenty of good comments, but to see the detail you put on your builds I am so impressed.
Have you built other RNLI boats, and if so do you have any pictures we can see?


   I am sure you could build a brilliant launching carriage and tractor for your model. Any thoughts?

Thank you.
I'm a relatively new modeller. Two of my builds can be viewed via the links at the bottom.
I have largely built a 1:12 Speedline Shannon but got stalled with it having started this MBD. I am much preferring my new found ability to magic parts up  :-)  I may finish the Speedline after this.
Launching carriage etc would be great but I have more models to build than years left so I don't know

She sails fine and this was her state earlier this year






My first love



My second completed in a very enjoyable 6 weeks or so

Could you not radio control the lift and fall of the gantry using a linear servo mounted under the deck ???

The Shannon has a manually operated Mast


Introducing a servo rod that doesn't belong would make the level of detail a bit of a waste of time. However you're not the first to suggest this and I understand the line of thought.

The bigger clarity and choice of photo sizes is mainly due to my own picture hosting

Supplies tip
I mostly buy from Knupfer but these are much cheaper here
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/M1-M1-2-M1-6-M2-M2-5-A2-STAINLESS-MACHINE-SCREWS-CSK-COUNTERSUNK-SLOTTED-BOLTS/111753772101?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=410748822911&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

For styrene use a 0.8mm drill bit and no need to tap a thread with M1 screws

Another supplies tip
I find the these sheradised steel washers will solder (Knupfer) impossible to find in brass
They are 2.7mm by 8mm and perfect for grab rail roses if you solder from the back. I will demonstrate when I make mine.


Centre punch for mock fixings



The locking lever was made from 10mm 90 brass

I'm now looking at the rare parts I would struggle to make from scratch so this video is a starting point. Any contributions to that end are very welcome
