Before I go back and cover the recent progress I'd just add that those who know my work know how important symmetry is in my book.
I cannot always be sure of accuracy but proportions and looking right can count for more than being skew wiff and mm perfect.


I often put the build on the floor to check for square



Here it is clear that both mast stays are the same angles




Overall a view from a height can reveal wrongs that might not be noticeable at bench height.
Hopefully the most often viewed angle is looking down from the side of a pond.

A quick word for David Leftley
The Graphics set is currently £56. I have decided to do both my builds as Scarborough so I ordered a second set.
My Danish friend pointed out that the wiper decals are far too big and only 4 in the set.



As usual once David is made aware he fixes it without quibble



My new additions for my two sets   :-))

Re: ModelsbyDesign Shannon FUEL filler and vent caps
« Reply #455 on: December 15, 2019, 06:22:29 PM »

Apparently the dual fuel fillers port and starboard are actually a Ventilator cap on the left and filler on the right.


This is one of my attempts to produce something looky likey


The parts

Is this the same 'Tamiya spray Silver Leaf' as shown on the suspension damper last week?.......

If so, looks pretty good on the fuel filler cap :-))

I found these on eBay. Great size and ideal if not wanting working lighting.

From what I have in stock otherwise a different tack might have been taken.
Thank you to John Huntley Scarborough and Rob Baines Fleetwood RNLI's for info














This black ring is a trimmed down rubber out of a cable stuffing gland







When the paint has hardened I will fit the black ring. No rain today and Tamiya can stand cold weather application if you get it straight back in the warm to dry. So I managed some progress

So far on but so very far from the end. I think the windows will be a good fit without glue when the cabin is painted

Re: ModelsbyDesign Shannon/ The mast stay bars and brackets
« Reply #467 on: December 17, 2019, 02:45:12 PM »

For the bars I've used small carbon tube. My advice for cutting this is to use the edge of a small half round file and work around the circumference. Other methods can lead to splintering.



For the connection points I've used Caldercraft vine eyes





I made the bottom stay brackets twice as they were too big initially and my final version is still oversize but as small as I can manage.
I used styrene T section






I'd rather correct things in progress until I'm satisfied.



I use a 0.8mm drill and 1mm tap






From yesterday, the black ring in place



Nav light boxes in progress

I'll fix these with 2 x 1mm screws each and dream up a solution for the lights



Now I can do the two aerials

Re: ModelsbyDesign Shannon Mast aerials
« Reply #469 on: December 18, 2019, 10:51:49 AM »

This was my job for today but ideas just flooded in and the first took under an hour including dismantling the mast T to drill it on the pillar drill (essential to ensure vertical)
I had 1.5mm carbon rod and 3mm carbon tube, also the washer drilled out to 3mm and filed to fit. A little bit of brass sleeve added and the carbon tube chamfered by holding in my drill chuck lightly and holding a file to it.














The Port side is 4metres tall so 330mm Starboard is 1500mm full length



1.5mm hole is tight and the thick styrene holds it secure without glue, so easy for transport
