Not done much today and I ran out of paint mid spray so a trip to LMS tomorrow.


Fresh pictures from Scarborough show the deck connector to be a cube so the nicely ovalized one needs a file to it.


I've also made the keeper for the sea catch safety locking pin. Not in picture

Looks great from over 6" away. Camera is too good  %% 


For this build I'm using Tamiya TS66 for the non textured deck parts

The silicon tubing arrived and an overdue delivery direct from Japan.


The Tamiya scriber is a must for styrene modellers
£5.48 delivered if you don't mind waiting up to month  :-)

Hydraulic pipe and forward support completed







My attention is now focused on the Sea-catch. I toyed with making it functional but decided against without an exploded view to work from.

So far most of the dreaded parts I have managed to create with much less resistance than I imagined and have turned out with a grin on my face but there are still specific items I cannot see a way through


The Speaker on the mast is a real blockage so if anyone has a thought on a way forwards pray tell?


I'm not interested in a pre made compromise


Arno Kim ?? AN other


P.S. looking at the previous picture I may attempt to scribe the lines to isolate the separate parts

Andy,
I will turn my speaker on my lathe [and I would think Arno will too], but before I got that 17-21 used to be amazed at what I 'turned' using my Dremmel fixed in a vice!! This is what I did for my Arun class aerial reducers and cappings. So that might just be the one way forward......then start dropping hints for a lathe [birthday] my wife bought mine for my 60th birthday some thirteen years back!! Seriously, another little idea to get the 'funnel' could be to find a small plastic syringe [or similar] and cut off the conical reduction section and glue this to some styrene rod/tube [maybe a little fettling to get it up to your fine standards]. Then I think all those little fins on the back will just have to be cut out and glued into place using spacers......that is what I will do - when I get there in 2025!!
Cheers, I am sure you will come up with another 'little gem' - but here is a 'starter for 10'!!
I'm back to the workshop for a little while now, to take the excess solder off the supporting fins on the gob-eye fairlead bases that I did this afternoon.

Thank you Alan. I'm not completely happy with the paint but that can be changed.
Iphone picks up the tiniest of flaws that you would not notice by eye


I'm not bothering with the shackle as it's not part of the boat itself, especially after launch.


JH just told me that the safety pin would be in the stowage tube before launch and would stay there until recovered  :-))

Continued.....


I started with an approximate shape then duplicated it. I've used 1.5mm styrene sheet.





I left it slightly long at the front edge so I could put the parts in a vice to form the flares with a hot air gun and a steel ruler to press evenly to get both identical











Brass 3.18mm rod and styrene tube



When I get confirmation of the exact height I will modify accordingly

It was still far too tall. Need to be looking at 15mm max
My roller is a bit high but no one will know  ok2

You will have noticed that much of my build, the mast for example is held together with small machine screws.
A set of micro taps like this is a must and the price for a set like this is probably less than you might pay for a 1mm tap alone.
I mainly tap styrene or the GRP so these are plenty good enough.

Wow, lovely work.  And prolific too.  You manage as much in a day as most of us would manage in a week.  Quick question - where do you do your spraying? Do you have an inside booth or do you dash out into the garden?

Thank you Greg
All the small parts are done with Tamiya spray which tolerates nipping out in most temperatures. The larger parts are spring summer only and outdoors so very often frustrated.
I hope to have the cabin fully prepared ready for the warm weather and likewise the other big items
The hull is I think complete now.


P.S.
I have more free time than many as I gave up work. Fortunately my wife has her own hobby too that she is just as keen on so usually we both do our own modelling in adjacent rooms without conflicts.

Much less time modelling today but what I have done is prepare the hull for the rest of the primer and taken the deck off to fit a 2mm pad of styrene below all the forward fittings for better tapped holes.

The styrene plate has made the deck more rigid too, it no longer moves when applying pressure. Some of the smooth finish applied.
Iíve also extended the base plate of the bow roller and made the grab rails

Very nicely put together. You have more patience and attention span than me!


When I do something that neat in the last minute I bash something or spill a bottle of glue or paint and undo half the work!

Yesterday I started the anchor with no sure idea of how to do it but it's slowly taking shape. Having studied the real one I can't say I've seen a scale one that copies it correctly.


Anyway a few pictures showing the steps so far.


















Still a lot of shaping before adding other details. Very rough but it will succeed
