Well that makes more sense then!

On your pics above though I'm a bit intrigued what is a "jet space" on a lifeboat and why does it need a hatch!? -aft deck item 1.

Cheers

All blended into the deck now. Tamiya is great paint.

I've decided to forego the problems with chrome paint and I've tried Tamiya TS-83 metallic silver instead.
This is best applied on top of matt black and I'm satisfied with the result. It withstands handling without affecting the finish.



Plenty long enough that they won't fall out.












Dry day so I got plenty of fettling done

Just been catching up on the forum as I've been a bit busy of late - beautiful job Andy this build just gets better and better.  Lovely job on the cleats and anchor  :-))

Thank you Mark  :-)


I have learnt something about myself. I excel at making very challenging objects it seems especially if only the once like the radar. Making two is just about where I keep interested. When I have to do 4 or 8 etc I really lose motivation  ;D

Your cleats look the part, Andy! It is good to see that different approaches can lead to the same magnificent result. By the way: lovely racebike in the background. I ride a Colnago!

Thank you Arno
I've not raced for nearly 10 yrs now. That is my Specialized Transition pro and I should have sold it on a long time ago. My road bike is a Team ONCE Giant TCR carbon but built myself with Campag Record carbon 10 Speed, this also I should have sold.
I did all events from 10 mile to 12 hr Time Trials as well as Sportifs in France like the La Ronde Picardie four times

Wow Andy, what a great photo! I cannot compete with that. I do cycling just to keep me fit and I like the speed. My Colnago is equipped with Campagnolo Chorus[size=78%] 11[/size] ok2

Cleats are doing my head in so as a break I've had a go at the Capstan foot switch.
Two brass washers and lots of 1mm screws. Only ONE of these  :}
All done by eye so not perfect but no one will look that close to notice when painted.

Re: ModelsbyDesign Shannon STAG HORN BOLLARDS .... how to make
« Reply #594 on: January 20, 2020, 09:32:25 pm »

I can't find a shop front website for them but you can buy large variety packs of small screws for specs and repair for a couple of pounds on eBay  :-))


Unlike Arno I decided against using any of the MBD bits supplied, as good as they were I wasn't happy with size and shape.


So first I established an angle for the tops of the horns and made eight pieces from 6mm that I topped off with flat strip.





They will all be fettled when assembled





I then made a shoe for drilling the base plate at the correct angle under the pillar drill





Working in stages to avoid ripping the styrene I finally reached 6mm








continued..........

I then use the drilling shoe to hold the parts whilst gluing. Once set turn it around for the other.





I think the rest is self evident from the pictures.



Carefully located using photos to as near as possible before drilling and tapping 1.4mm

I plan to do an updated ballast test by the weekend.
I had 941grams of lead previously to get to 9.4kg so I want to see what I have left for the remaining work.

Just to let everyone know. The bolts holding the Capstan down are hard and it's not a good idea to trip on deck and land ones knee on one of them.  >>:-( >>:-(


Did it on Sunday on our Mersey. A few expletives from me and giggles from the crew - once they knew I was okay  {:-{ {:-{

Would be easy to make the screws countersunk flush but I imagine the idea of raised heads is the give the foot in rubber boots a better purchase on the switch  :-))
