Good morning everyone
My next build starting in the new year, after completion my 1/72 HMS Victory will be the 1/35 Mountfleet Models Steam Trawler St Nectan although she will be possibly named something different, possible named after the wife or Doggie
 
Now  that is decided I am now able to open my options to one side being opened to show some internal details as she was always going to be a static build anyway
So this leads on to my first big question
Where do I obtain decent internal plans, including the power plant ?

good evening everyone


i started the St Nectan recently but only the wheel house area, whilst i ponder how to proceed with the build


the vessel was built by Cook Welton and Gemmell  and there is now an archive site that is documenting all the vessels built and they hope to have some records of the St Nectan on file this summer


as i want this build as a cutaway i will be slicing the hull in half and supporting them above each other (somehow)


does any one know how i can obtain a card kit/ drawings of a rtripple expansion engine made by C.D Holmes  (157 NHP) ?


i also would like to share my build with you, should anyone be interested

i planked the deck in lime strips, to cover the printed version, so it gave me the opportunity to practice nibbling, and to insert margins, this then allowed to put the tank covers into the deck, rather than sticking 1mm above, intentions were to treenail but i decided against it,
the main and boat deck have now been wiped over with a grey wash
