After completing the ballasting with the batteries installed I created the nests to locate them, then installed the tillets and stabilizers. I can now fix down the helideck and start work on the hanger, which will be removable to allow access to the motors.

Hello Chris,
I assume you are referring to the orange box in the first picture, that's one of the 12v batteries. I inherited the model and the rudder servo was already installed, did consider moving closer to the tillers, but then it would be hard to reach if it needed to be changed. In its current position, it can be reached via the removable hanger floor. Tested it and works OK, with no noticeable flexing. Regards Jon

Made progress on the hanger internals, which is made in four sections so that they can be removed once the hanger roof is lifted off. I did a trial assembly and found it a challenge but possible to install and remove. This will give access to the motors if ever needed, hopefully, I will never need to take it all out once finished. Just a little more detailing and some paint and the hanger can be completed. I hope to start painting the hull, weather permitting this weekend.

HI very nice work in the hanger bay with the walkways an railins an yes good idea about makin it removeable to get to the motors an such as some time the motors may burn out as access to this area is a must as i also am back to motor probs on my tiger so im busy today tryin to find out whats causin the prob as the rear motors go great but the other have always been a prob so i have replaced them with grupner 600 motors an they work great so if still a prob then it must be the esc but your model is comin on great keep pics comin

Yes still ok here hope Jen is ok as well.

Continued with painting the Hull, I've been working on the deck hazard markings. I have in the past used self-adhesive hazard strips but found they can lift off over time and so have decided to go back to my old method of painting them. I start with a base coat of yellow and then mask off each spacing and apply the black. Once dry I remove the mask and then reapply the mask where the hazard marking should be, then spray the main deck medium grey.

Added the pennant number and depth marking today, just requires a coat of lacquer to seal and she is ready for her first sea trials.

Made a start on adding some of the fine detail to the model. Been working with the etched sheets from Scalewarships, which are very good, if not a bit fiddly to work with, especially as the eyesight is not what it was, definitely a case of "Should have gone to Specsavers" %)

Yes!  ScaleWarship do produce very good PE Frets and you have done a nice job fitting them.

HI Jon she's lookin good excellent paint finish an in 1/72 scale like my tiger how long is she ? an beam ? an yes them scalwarships p/e really sets the model off brilliant an glad to see she passed her test tank trials ok as im at that point at the moment on my tiger waiting
for warm sunshine so i can get tiger in the test tank to check how she sits an stability an for leakes an me an boat chums went over HMS DAUNTLESS  when she came to gr yarmouth an i must admit i dint like the T 45 with that massive mast an the design of the ship but i see her in real i have changened my mind an think they look less clunky an more gracefull than i imagined the real thing would be an a question please why have the R/N not fitted safetey railins  right up to the bow as yes i know the ancor chain capstans  an chains are all in side the bow but just seems strange to see them stop just past the gun

Hello Chris,


The model is nearly 7Ft long and has a beam of 12inch. I was not a big fan of the T45 design, but it has started to grow on me. I believe the railings do not continue all the way to the bow as she has an enclosed forecastle, so there is no need for crewmen to work in this area.


I hope to get her in the water soon once we get a dry/warmer weekend. I have yet to check if she will fit in my car  :o .


Best Regards
jon
