    Hi Shipmates,

    Minor update, spent time adding panels (some not required= sub roof and floor) to the cabin, and designing roof beams.

    Regards Roy

    Hi Shipmates,

    Have done a bit more to the cabin.
    Unfortunately I've now contracted Covid for the 3rd time.

    Regards Roy

    Hi Shipmates,

    Thanks everyone for your kind comments.

    I work as a Carer and that is most probably why I have caught Covid so often, had all the jabs, last time was about a year ago.

    So to all be aware Covid is still around, and if you are vulnerable take extra care.

    Have a Merry Christmas, (mine is on hold at the moment, but I should be OK by the New Year)

    Kind Regards
    Roy

    Hi Shipmates,

    A sudden warm spell allowed me to go into the shed.
    Start to cut out the basic sides to the Cabin.
    Glue two sides together.

    Regards Roy

    Hi Shipmates,

    Back in the utility room as shed too cold hit minus 10ยฐC, fingers stopped working.

    Added some semi scale hatches.

    Also an attempt to create a plan of rear/stern of cabin.

    Regards Roy

    Hi Shipmates,

    Rear /cabin deck is of 3mm ply, used part of low resolution sketch to determine the size and position of the base of the cabin.

    To make things complicated the sides of the cabin are not straight, but bend inwards at the halfway point see first pic.
    The front sections of the cabin tilt forward at the halfway point. thus the roof is narrower than the base of the cabin and projects forward at the front just overlapping the start of the cargo area.

    All-in-all a complex shape to make.๐Ÿ˜ญ

    Added a 3mm cabin base then another 3mm riser (10mm all round smaller), as there is a air gap before the cabin floor starts, this is because in the real world the cabin is detachable and can be removed for replacement or to access the engine bay for major engine maintenance etc.

    Regards Roy

    Hi Shipmates,

    A warm minus 4ยฐC this morning in Sunny Cumbria in the UK.

    So had to rip off the cargo hold roof, and windowed sections and cut down the sides to the correct hight and angle, removed some cross braces, may replace later ?

    Cut out the 3mm ply rear deck that the Cabin will be constructed on, have added some bracing around 3 sides, hope the sheet will stay flat, will add more under the 3mm ply.

    Regards Roy

    Hi Shipmates,
    Another 'Disaster!' "Just cannot measure a bit of wood", the middle cargo area is wrong the windows are at too steep an angle.
    Have dismantled roof, removed windows panels both sides (may need to rebuild) and cut down the sides of the main cargo area to get the angle correct.
    Have had to order more 1mm(0.8) ply.

    Regards Roy

    Hi Shipmates,
    1. Picture of esc and its associated controller.
    2 and 3. Fill bow section of forward cargo area with polystyrene.
    4. Add roof to forward cargo area.
    5. Basic clean up of forward cargo area.

    I was going to put lights in the main cargo area as it has windows, but the 3mm black acrylic sheet I got for the job is completly light proof, so no point in putting in LEDs unless I buy something else for the windows!

    Regards Roy

    Nice progress CB90,

    Pity about the Black acrylic, if you get some clear acrylic then paint the inside with Tamiya Smoke out of their clear range of paints, preferably sprayed, you can produce the desired tint.

    Cheers,
    Stephen.
