    πŸ“ Engine and ballast

    So I have glassed the engine bed in and lined the shaft through.
    I have also added a lot of cement to bring the hull down to the waterline.
    Electrics are all in and the internal will now be given a coat of tile paint to seal everything in.
    The only part of the build I will not make this time is the wheelhouse which has now arrived from Andy @ modelsbydesign. His Cygnus mould is perfect for the one on the plans. I have shown it on here with the start of the foredeck which will be made in the plasticard and the sealed with resin.

    Some good recycling going on here πŸ‘πŸ˜‰
    Go easy on the hardener when you use resin to seal the plasticard!
    Or you might melt it πŸ€”
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    Good point, will keep it to a thin coat, almost paint it on but it will allow me to rub it back to make the join seamless..

    So this will be a Cygnus SF 33. It’s a modelsbydesign hull 12th scale. I have a set of plans of a GM33 that my dad fitted out many years ago (now in Scarborough - CJ Lewis).

    This will be a trawler.
