Hi Trucker
Thanks for your interest in the build.

I am still building although family and work have slowed me down the last couple of weeks. I have almost finished the raised deck although progress has been slow as my brass tube bending and soldering isn't the best. Will post some pictures later today.

Yes it is the Tyne I'm building, like yourself this is my first complete scratch build ( although I have refurbished a billings 1/20 scale 44ft US coast guard cutter and turned it into an RNLI Waveney) so I to have had to remake things I'm not happy with. I will upload latest pictures shortly

had to remove the spray rail on my tyne class lifeboat today, reason for that is simply because i didnt like how i put it on and just didnt look right, so, can any of you tyne builders help me out by explaining how you made, attached there spray rail to the hull, and the thickness of the sheet used to make their spray rail

The aft cabin has now had the curved edges made up, ive used thin strips of wood glued in with super glue and some epoxy , BUT, what should i use as filler on the wood so once dry i can shape and finish off.

Hi Trucker
Looking good  :-))
For the survivors cabin I used 1/4 wooden quadrant from wickes and used Halfords filler primer ( a few coats sanded in between filled the grain in well)
I really do like your capstan, can I ask where you got it from, one thing I'm struggling with is good pictures and how to make it ( I haven't got the use of a lathe)
Keep up the good work and keep posting the pictures

ive started to remake the spray rail today, but , looking at all the fine models of the tyne class boat i have a question i would like to put to you guys out there, most of the rails i see are quite flat to the to the hull, but on the actual life boat the rail appears to protrude, HOW, would i make my rail more convincing like the real thing...

Hi
I think it's just an optical illusion that the rail looks like it's protruding. On the real boat I have seen at The Emergency Services museum in Sheffield the spray rails are triangular and definitely flush to the hull. When I did my Tyne I used triangular styrene profile glued to the hull. It took a lot of heating (with a hair dryer) and bending to get it to look right. Even then I'm not 100% happy with mine (it's a little low on the bow). Hope this helps.

Thanks for the tip on the way you tackled the spray rail, using a triangle piece i will certainly look at it...
