Cheers Towrope, I think you are right about the superstructure, but never mind you know me I like a challenge. Hopefully starting on her becker rudder today, I have just received a good photo of the rudder and nozzle from a friend who has supplied me with a lot of info on the Research.

Those becker rudders are tricky things to get right, so it's good to see your result - nice work Brian.  :-))

Hi Brian nice bit of work did you manage to have the stern thruster working or is it just for visual affect looks a bit tight to have it working
                                                                                                                                                              take care and be safe

I have just caught up with your build Brian and I really like the mould and quality of the process.


I appreciate you not wanting to make them as a product but with the mould being so good, could it not be sold for further use by a company?


I look forward to your build log and progress  :-))

just for visual effect, it would be nice to have the stern truster working but as you have noticed its quite tight. I am trying to have her looking more or less like the Research. The stern thruster sits just above the keel on the research but on the model it would be a bit of a headache as the main prop shaft runs over the top of the thruster. :-)) [size=78%] [/size]

I have had a few enquiries about a hull but I have decided not to sell any hulls until after I have made the model, then I will give it some thought.

thanks for that Brian thought it would be a bit tight I know your more than capable but it would give you a head ache trying and with having the Becker rudder I don't think you would gain much in the water

I have been adding a bit more detail to the hull today, I had plans to fit the bow thruster into the Arctic but thought i would make a start on the Trawler wash ports instead ( very time consuming 18 on each side

Started work on the inside of the hull, the deck I that you see in the photos is the main net drum deck. When the model is finished the net drums will be visible along with quite a bit of detail, I am building a removable hatch under the net drums just case of any breakdown with the rudder linkage.

A bit more done, fitted a batterie box at this stage as once I start adding more detail it would not be as easy. The box holds two 150 x 100mm and one 100 x 65mm batteries. I did a water test to check for ballast with the two bigger batteries and she still sits well above her water line  :-))

A small update the decks are dry fitted, they will be secured at a later date as a lot of detail has to be done before they can be secured
