Andy,
The sweetest and neatest - worth every minute you have invested in it :-)) . It must have inspired many to give 'scratch building' a go, or maybe just 'up their game'.

Thank you Kim. So near yet still so far to go.


My collection makes me smile when I walk in the room  :-)

This is working for me and a good start. I've countersunk the screws, the 1.4mm through the cabin roof also secure the rear bulkhead as this will always be removable.
For the screen I'm using 1mm screws and there will eventually be a metal strip on the other side and a strip across the front that shields the hinge.
I've driven out the steel hinge pin and replaced with 1mm SS that I can use during construction to easily separate the hinge halves.
The screw count will be increased to be more representative.

Good your changing the rod for s/steel, but is the hinge all brass, or brass plated?


You have the new proxxon mill to make all brass hinges.

It is plated Dave I will be painting it.


I realised I fitted the glass on the wrong side of the hinge so I started over.

More screws fitted and frontal plate. When this is fitted in the finale it will have a drop cloak that covers the hinge.

I started again ... again.
The screen hinge now sits on a raised strip that is an integrated part of the cabin roof, barely noticed it because its orange.
However it makes the difference between the screen folding flat or NOT.
I've also made the screen a little taller and now stands as 31mm

Slow going and trying to avoid more bin fodder.  I think I may change the round head screws with countersunk as they stand out too much.

Sorry, but stepping back where did the loudspeaker come from please?  I think I have one very similar but looking for a smaller one but not the usual cap Maquette's jobby's as already have a few. They're very fenickety to make from scratch.


Thanks,


Rich

After a couple of days throwing bits in the bin it's now starting to look like a goer.
Now I've hammered out the distortion from the centre punch the round head screws are not so bad.

On my build this part simply has to be removable as it would prevent my whole Bridge from being detached from the cabin mould if it was glued.








The long strip is attached to the side screen eventually and should be transparent but I will paint is with pearlescent white

Anyone with a speedline will have two sets of screen and throttles as one set is for indoors.
I am donating mine to MBD  :-) 


I know I have a spare hydrant too but cannot find it  :((  yet

Both sides equally advanced now so time to start the internal metalwork to the corner hinges and then the screen support frames. Side screen not yet shaped to final finish. I think the gulley or trough is perhaps a little too deep but I will overcome

Andy,
You are right about the depth of the 'trough' being '....a little too deep.....', as when I made the original rear bulkhead [of which you are using a resin cast] from styrene sheet, there was a difference from my actual measurements of two Shannons [13-02 and 13-04] and the official RNLI plans of 1.66mm [when converted to 1/12th scale] against the height of the model's wheelhouse. I decided that the extra depth would impact on less [all the other splendid working parts which you have made and more] than by making this correct and everything else having to be altered too. However, at this stage, anyone can add a thin styrene template of 1.55mm [plus paint = 1.66mm!!] to the shape of the gully and..........hey-ho, you should be back to normal [or so].
All in all worth pointing out, which at the time I did request was made on a small 'errata' sheet for modellers getting their models.
Cheers,
Kim [C.C.]
