I worked carefully around the handle with a chisel blade and got it off undamaged. Relocated with CA  :-))

Where are all the brass fittings / hinges coming from?

Returning to the magnets idea.
These are the 5mm x 0.5mm and they do it for me. Wont look out of place on painted hatches.

A couple of hours of tedium and again it just evolved.
I started with the main plate from sheet brass and then found suitable size brass tube and as it was 1.7mm rod for the hinge pin.
Soldering was awkward but managed obviously.
This will actually work if I wish but a bit pointless.














I had to deepen the rebates a bit






Just the 8 screws to fit

I just bought a pair of these. If you're going to a show better to buy from ComponentShop but these are under £12 a pair delivered and because its less than £15 no import charges.
The ESC will cut power at a set voltage but better to have a little bit of advance warning to head back in.

I don't know who is responsible for these parts but it really was a stroke of genius to make them how they did. It can pretty much be detailed to a completed finish before being very well inserted into the deck recess. It does need a lot of attention to the real hatch as it does need a lot of fettling to the subtleties that can be easily overlooked.
Firstly it should not fit flush to the deck and will need packing up slightly proud. All the edges need to be rounded off rather than sharp too.
Anyway here is a picture of the 13-15 hatch



My progress so far and I haven't found a suitable colour yet either.

Well, after adding the complex profile of the anti-skid surfacing, I suggest your build is a pretty darn good representation of the origin  :-))


One question, on the actual vessel, does each of the Crew Members carry or wear a rope & square drive for the 4 x corner locks?

That hatch is the engine space emergency exit, the handles are on the under side.

From JH

Hi Andy, the main purpose of the hatch is as an escape hatch for the jet space
- in case of fire, flooding or pyrogen discharge in the engine compartment (the standard access route)
The jet space is separated from the engine compartment by a watertight bulkhead with an acces door


The possible reason for a crewmember to be in the jetspace is to be able to manually control the buckets and steering nozzles by mechanical means in the event of a total failure of the electronic controls and the back up electrical controls.
The other reason to access there would be in the case of impellor fouling
As there are inspection scuttles /hatches that can be opened with the boat afloat (with everything stopped!) as long as sea-state is moderate to allow an attempt to physically remove or cur away whatever is fouling the impellor - (assuming that the normal control procedure of carrying out a back-flush by engaging reverse gear to drive the impellor in reverse has failed to clear the fouling)


As for opening the hatch the internal opening lever is permanently fitted, and you are correct that there is a removable
 key/lever that is stowed just inside and to the right of the wheelhouse door

Good choice Alan and your Speedline is truly stunning  :-))
I just happen to have bought that myself along with AS-16 USAF light grey and about to try it.


EDIT the grey below , not sure until dry but I think you nailed is with Insignia

Yes definitely AS-20 Alan  :-))  I have finished mine in gloss clear. I'll leave it 24hrs before masking up for texturing.

Very kind of you. Absolutely no rush and as many beam sizes as possible. Iíll work most out from length and breadth  :-)

No Problem, I will take as many measurements as I can and get a good set of photos for you during tea breaks over the next few days!

I've started looking at the stanchions that I have to make for a second time. I need to be more organised to mass produce despite them all being different.
Firstly I discovered I barely have any 1/8th brass rod left.
Tired of paying £5.25 per 36" I've googled and found MACC Models to be best at £2.66 per length but postage has to be considered so I bought 10 lengths to average it out delivered to £3.56 per length.
https://maccmodels.co.uk/shop/1-8-brass-round-cz121-per-foot-2/


Collection in person is possible too.


A bit further with the jet escape hatch. My masking up is below par but at a foot away it looks fine lol

Hi Taranis..


Are your brass hinges nickel plated?
