There is so much thoughtful carpentry going on here itís just lovely  :-))  Mind you if my build had been blown over I reckon I would have actually invented a few new words  %%   Great build Brian keep the pictures coming.

Thanks Mark T  :-) ....Next section are construction of the w-house, the sloping section at the rear of the w-house will be the bottom section of the exhaust stacks .The biggest problem with building this model was not having enough photos of her as she was in her first few years of operation as they extended her stern area for purse seining , also changing her main deck and aft top deck area......cheers   :-))

Hi Hama I'm glad that you are enjoying the build .....With the next section of photos are of the exhaust stacks, as she has to be transported from A to B . So at this stage  will make the mast (crows nest) detachable from the stacks and the stacks detachable from the w-house and the same with the w-house from top deck area, by the time the hull sits in the transport trolley it just squeaks in to the back of the Tucson .( that was the plan at the time of the build going by measurements, and surprisingly it worked  :-)) )  cheers ...

Very nice work. You're building in a scale the original shipwright work can be followed and demonstrated for all to admire.

Morning, thank you Rich.With the next section of photo's  , showing the bracing the 2 stacks together, I know it looks a bit rough with the section filled with blocks but needed something substantial for the base of the mast to fit to.An after thought to cut this section out below the w-house, glad i did as it gives an easier excess to the forward section..Along with the eyebrow staunchions  put a filler section in for the joints of the first layer of 1 mm ply before laminating with another layer of the same thickness of ply......Cheers  :-)) .

Very nice lines for a fishing boat. Is that a typical Aussie Tuna boat? That bow is very similar to the Indonesian/Thai trawlers.

Hi Steve, there was quite a few built in the late 70's early 80's with the extended clipper bows mainly for the Greeks ,Italians ,Croatians in the Tuna industry, as you can see in the few photos I have attached, cheers  :-))

Lovely work Brian this build is immense  :-))   When you say the stern was changed because of "purse seining" what does that mean?  I've never heard of this before and are you going to make one of your realistic engine covers for this model too?

Hi Guys , as you can see in the photo's Mark T they extended the stern area to accommodate more deck area needed for the amount of net and skiff they have to carry, they did this with a few of the Tuna vessels down around Port Linclon area, as they went from pole vessels (poling tuna) to purse seining the tuna they have large tuna pens where they  keep the tuna  to feed and fatten them up before they are sold ,so some of the tuna vessels tend to be a working platform to carry pallets of feed out to the fish pens they have anchored in the Bays around Port Linclon...Cheers  :-))

Hi there, few more shots of the build, another brain fade ( seem to be getting good at these  O0 ) after making and fitting the pivot point for the boom then realized it had to pivot side ways as well.Decided to try another way of connecting the top lugs for the lifting boom, makes it stronger then just filled the cross slots in the end with timber.Decided to utilize the eye glass hinges been saving up in my container of brass scraps for the top lugs that will brace the mast in position...cheers  :-)) .

Hi there, these next photo's are of the net dinghy for the model, I found this was the easiest way to build it ???, good thing for the Dremel and File sander to cut and clean the inside of it out ( few more of it to come),  cheers  :-)) .

Lovely work Brian and it also gives perspective on just how big this build is.  Some builders make boats the size of you dingy!!

Hi Mark T  thanks for that, I must admit I like building the larger models but they start to get a bit heavy when you have to move them around or transporting them, the next builds are smaller one at 37 inches and 33.75 inches.I wasn't gong to go to to much detail with the dinghy, but where do you stop ?? same with the outboard it wasn't on the list but what the heck , the decals tracked those down on internet (early 1980's). cheers  :-)) .

Hi there ,thanks guys....Found a piece of rosewood to make the main deck ladder from, with the brass hand railing the top section looks a bit rough with the extra pieces soldered on this is to give it a bit more support for the timber capping she had all around the top of the railing.When I was painting one of the undercoats on with a brand new brush it decided to go on strike  ( probably made in China  O0 ) cheers  :-)) .

Oops, I thought you were using the ferrule for a tool or for a certain metal shape you needed until it dawned on me that the paint on the bristles looked wet and it was odd not to see the piece being soldered.


Progress is excellent especially that gorgeous boat.

Hi there, some more photo's of the build, with the Crest couldn't get a clear enough photo of it to use, she had the main Crest one on her nose (under the bow capping rail) and the inserts of the main crest on each exhaust stacks, had a friend transfer them to inkjet water slide paper, then another undercoat applied to her bottom, cheers  :-))

The brasswork around the search light looks very realistic I've not seen one done like that before.  I'll keep that idea in my back pocket for the future.

Wow does not express my admiration enough. Your woodwork, brass work and laser work are truly splendid.
