    ๐Ÿ“ Frames

    Had looked on a hobby shop site to order paint as we are still advised not to go out unless you need to. Had wanted a dark blue to paint the frames and wind screen. The paint received was not dark blue. Turns out the paint ordered was not the color I wanted and not air brush ready. Emptied the paint into a mixing container adding thinner and black until it came to the color I was looking for. With the mixing done painted the frames and wind screen.

    Rick, you are doing a great job, makes me think I'll have to do a full refurbishment on my 2 Fairey's as they look decidedly used compared with yours.
    Keep it up I'm really enjoying the blog.
    Cheers Colin.

    The hull shape has turned out well. The start to the sanding is progressing as the bow is almost were I want it.

    Strips complete. Now the work begins. Cleaning up the sides to shape working to not chip the wood. Sanding sanding and more sanding until the finish is smooth enough to seal and finish.

    Mike Stoney, I'm a retiree but I always say I don't know how I found the time to go to work. We seemed to do loads of things back then. We kept and breed Afghan Hounds and took them to dog shows. Travelled around the country doing that and even got to Crufts with them. We no longer have them as once the last 3 passed away we dicided that it was too upsetting when they die and no longer have them. I even done some building of and went out and played with my R/C Boats. But I don't seem to have the time do half the things we done. I don't seem to understand it. I know my last five years have been bad heath, mainly due to the BIG C and both shoulder Rota Cuff's torn beyond repair. But now C ๐Ÿ˜ŠCLEAR. So hoping to get my old Cassic Rover back on the road, the one in my Avatar aand try and get out to play boats. But that will travelling about 20 miles minimum to get to a pond to use them.

    Hey mturpin!
    It is correct that retirees have time, but have you ever heard a retiree say:
    I have time . . . ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    don't think so, rather the opposite !!

    Rushing a model will always be a disappointment, being methodical and working slowly will always produce a good result. after all some of us are retired so have plenty of time.

    So right Ron we must keep the fingers moving in this cold winter season. Parquet would be something different.

    Why not, itโ€™s your boat, and am sure it will look very nice when done. Besides, in a cold Canadian winter, ya gotta have something to stimulate those brain cells, and keep them fingers moving. ๐Ÿ˜

    The fella who did the deck on this boat, used Cherry strips! Not original decking on a Lobster Yacht, but he did a fine job!

    I am sure, youโ€™re welcome to finish as youโ€™d like too as well. Enjoy, be creative, maybe do a parquet deck, now wouldnโ€™t that be different.

    Thanks Chris for the pictures. As this is a Huntsman build but an imaginary finished design. Had the Mahogany in house decided to use up.

    Obviously your choice Rick, but traditionally Fairey decks (apart from the race boats which were often painted) were mahogany to the perimeter and a lighter timber to the deck areas.

    Photo shows my Huntsman 31 and Swordsman.

    Making the screens is one part I'm not looking forward to. Though that's been true of other aspects of my builds!

    First photo shows the hand rail. Having brass wire and tubing inhouse built the rail. Formed the rail and cut two pieces for the angled pieces. Cut two tubes to fit over the wire filed a hole in the tube for the down pieces to fit into. Silver soldered the down pieces in place. Fine tune when installing.
    My first upper structure was off a little sitting on the boat decided to make the structure again. The windows where cut down to 5 from 7 .

    The pulpit looks very nice indeed. I finished mine off by buying a pack of 10 brass portholes.
    "Hobbies" have then.
    Then I took the glass out and they make really good finish to holes that the wires go into.
    I also made the steps at the back and used the last 4 portholes for that.
    Last comment. I have not glued the pulpit or the rear steps in place.
    I have never had them come out except when I want to transport the boat.
    Its much easier to travel without those two items attached and easy to put in when sailing.
