Andy.....not trying to teach a principal, however if you drill an on size hole [same as the brass vertical rod] into an aluminium block, this provides a square level surface for placing the washer prior to soldering....yes on the top surface of the washer


The soft solder does not stick or adhere the the aluminium surface....you can also transcribe vertical angles to suit the progressive up-rise fore & aft of the hull surface, together with a MS steel wire placed for athwart rise of hull

Thanks for the tip Derek  :-)
Back on the job early for good behaviour

Here I've added some more detail for the radar and speaker mounting points. The pictures also share "my" measurements

Its not the finishing that matters - Its the journey along the way that counts

Grab rails
I've bent each end to fit the outer holes and soldered the two centre stabs whilst in place.



The washers from Knupfer



Centre punched then finished with a 1.5mm drill bit to a uniform depth once fitted.





I've opted for a no heat method and slow CA works ok but I have not stuck them to the cabin





The wood spacer will be used throughout

I fitted circular spring clips to hold the grab rails in place. makes for clean removal if required.

Thanks
No the grab rails are 2.5mm
They were 2.7 on the Speedline but I find that size impossible to locate anywhere
Bow stern and stanchions are 1/8 or 3.18
Some use larger than that


Just the roses to make and fit now

Finished in bare metal silver, I think the partially drilled roses work well

I thought at this stage I would check the fit of the windows and I'm pleased to say they score very highly indeed

The only issue that stands out with my windows is front centre. Possibly may vary from plug to plug?





This was easy to make good. Applying extra masking tape to the window and frame, filled with squadron white putty in stages removing the frame each time to prevent sticking.





Just the tiniest of fettling to do and primer





A long way off yet but I don't imagine gluing the glazing to the frames as they are a stretch fit. I envisage fitting the units into a bed of black silicon and rubbing the squeeze out off when set. I will spray the frames black first. Fitting will be the very last job after cabin is complete in finished colours

Deck lighting in the side of the cabin. Suitable leds with wire, £6.50 for 20. The holders, Ole has used speedline parts, but unless the chap that moulds them carries on then they will need making.


My idea would be to turn down a black acetal nylon rod and drill a hole through the middle.


Any other ideas?

Have you any pictures of these rivets John? I can't visualise what they look like before you did your magic
