Thank you John I'm glad your are finding things useful and I wish you success with the hatches and hope you'll share it with us  :-)


Hi Mike and thank you, the figures are from Speedline and look superb when painted to a high standard. I've been advised to sub mine out to one of those war gamer shops for a couple of beers  {-)


The figures will be available again eventually but for now I cannot say anymore. I will update when that changes as I'm sure there will be many interested.


These are painted by Ole Bodker in Denmark

No modelling today but I've just put radar on test before bed.

This is now adjusted to 29rpm which I believe is the upper end of the tolerance.
My motor is not fixed in place and all the parts are simply push fit so not a nightmare to change a motor if it ever becomes necessary. I will probably fix the regulator inside the T and use thicker wire from there downwards

Sorry but my post above (503) has been modified with the wrong link.

Re: ModelsbyDesign Shannon Stem Head part II

Nearly complete. Worth noting that the release lever handle is different on early models and bends the other way on 13-15

Tomorrow Leeds Model shop re opens for a desperate gasp of air before shutting again. So Iíll be there early for my parts to finish the radar  :-))
The weather forecast is excellent so we will proceed from there to Filey for a quiet sea front walk and coffees  :-)  maybe to Scarborough from there

Looking good as ever! Radar looks amazing! They spin at different speeds depending on what range you are on!

Thank you  :-)  I heard 26/29rpm so any of them I guess  :-))


John Huntley sent me a batch of Stem Head and Bow Roller pictures from Scarborough today that show a few differences to the pictures I was working from. Just in time  {-)

The problem is that all crews have now been issued with the appropriate "Helly Hanson" kits, which bears no resemblance to any of the scale figures available.

That won't be one of my concerns Alan, I'll be very happy to have well painted figures in previous kit.

Another set of photos from JH covering the 13-15 anchor. Unlisted gallery so download or bookmark them.

These are the closest I can find for the port starboard nav lights.
Tamiya clear colour applied inside. When the exterior black is applied they should be acceptable.


I'm not doing working lighting for a number of reasons. In the event of damage to the mast structure mine is easy to dismantle to repair, wiring would make it a real chore.
Some examples I've seen are far less desirable to me than a crisp clean wire free build.


So at nearly £12 a set its an expensive way of procuring the two lenses I want.

They'll do for me







I've used Halfords appliance white on this.
I'll allow full hardness before fitting the FURUNO decal

Unfortunately for other modellers this ratchet is now discontinued by RC4WD


Also one issue is that it will not release tension so must be made demountable once tension is applied if you need to remove the bow cable.

The anchor plinth took no time really but it spurred me on to make the Hydraulic pipe protector. I've yet to see one that looks like it so I've copied pictures from 13-15








This was two profiles cut to shape, 2mm sitting on 1mm then 4 x 1mm pieces for the fixing points.
