That is how I painted my white line.
However it took a full day to get the six laser lines to all join up correctly. <:(
Don't forget the black paint on the top of the step.

That's reassuring to know  :-))   I do fully expect it to take all day and a scalpel.


This will form the main body of the line. From a local Ebay seller who dropped it through my letterbox  :-)

                   Kinmel,
                             Can I ask the Make/model of the Laser you are using, the cheaper
                           ones I have looked at seem to have a rather thick and very fuzzy line.

                                                         Bryan.

Mine is a self levelling unit, a special buy from Aldi.
You need to adjust the distance to sharpen up the line, fuzzy means too far away

Just a wee query here in terms of making up all the brass railings etc..

Has anyone considered spot welding? - assuming access to a spot welder. Just thinking of an alternative to soldering/silver Soldering

Spot welding is for joining two sheets of flat steel together by passing a high current through it.
I donít see how that can be applied to brass rods ?
IMV soft soldering is better anyway because if you make a crock of it itís easy to reheat and adjust

Iíve seen it done with mild steel rod rod - making fishing creels etc. Not sure of brass rod although Iíve seen a lot of items made from brass that look spot welded. Get your point about soldering though. Will stick to it. Just curious 👍👍

Since the question has been asked. This is my laser from my working days.









It has been used in all my blogs

Lidlís did one a year or so ago which I bought for fencing work. Did the job in helping to erect cupboards in the shed. Has the automatic levelling unit built in.👍

I managed satin lacquer on the deck today plus primer and white top coat on the midriff.
I'd like another coat tomorrow them masking on Tuesday.






Very much looking forwards to seeing the bow completed



Also ready for masking

I had a day off today to be sure of full curing of paint. The masking may be on for some time and I'll now start tomorrow

First time I've looked at the Graphics for the bow from David Leftley and they are wrong size and spacing.
David produced these based on information he was given and he is always happy to revise them but he is recovering from an op so I'm not going to bother him.
Firstly they are too small for 1:12 at only 25mm high. They scale at 33.3mm from 400mm actual. Probably Ok for 1:16 apart from the spacing of the numbers is too great also.


Look at the 1  5  %%  for example



Actual



I've contacted the same guy that printed my Portgarth decals and he spent quite some time making me happy.
I've now ordered sets in both 30mm and 33mm to see what fits best. Size affects length.

Change of plan?
I thought it was white stripe first and then upper and lower hull colours to define athe actual line.

Thats what I've done. The white is masked over and I've sprayed the blue. Tomorrow I'll mask the blue along the white line and spray black. Then depending how I feel I might do the grey keel strip.


I'm already feeling another wooden kit coming on  {-)

Yes all fine thank you  :-))


Two steps back! yes it happens to me too.
Painting was ok but realised too late that the line is too narrow so I'm flatting it all back for bigger tape which is on the way.
I've seen many other builds that also suffer from a 6mm line.
I don't mind persevering

Despite starting a new build the Shannon is continuing with painting as weather permits. I remasked and white primed for the waterline today.
