    πŸ“ Oceanic refit

    Well here goes the first steps of Oceanic's refit.
    She is around 40 years old, ABS hull with a wood / ply superstructure with transfers for the topsides detail!!
    There are a couple of motors, unidentified make, a pair of 2mm shafts with a couple of plastic three bladed props and a singe barn door rudder.
    So far research has thrown up that the original ship is still active.
    Photos and articles tell me she runs 4 bladed Variable Pitch Props in Fixed Korts with three rudders. One on each Kort and one midships, which could be a Becker Flap Type!
    As i have no details of the model a tank test has been expedited to estimate the load she will carry. Five cans of beans and the Superstructure and she is not far off. So I have around 2 kg to play with. Sounds a lot, but still need to keep the imagination in check, if nothing else to spare the wallet any undue pain!!
    First stab at a build list is attached as a starter for ten for my Christmas Wish List Plus i am thinking of adding a 3d printer as this baby is 1:87 so bits will be harder to find, so best start making a few myself!!
    More as I progress guys.

    Sounds like it going to be an interesting refit, looking forward to it.
    Good idea about the printer just recently purchased one myself. Great useful item once you get the hang of designing the parts, plenty items can be made.

    Thank you Martin555,

    I have the feeling that I may need just little luck along the way.

    Thanks Elsrickle

    Been thinking of a printer for some time, maybe this will focus the mind on the challenge.

    Me thinks Letter to Santa is in order

    Hi Guys

    Anybody out there has any experience of a QIDI X Pro 3D dual filament printer and Fusion 360 Design Software.
    This is being recommended to me as a possible way forward.
    Thoughts guys, please.

    Thanks Ian

    Hi Ian just seen your query. It is the qidi x pro printer that I’m using.had no problems with it, comes quickly from amazon. As this is the my first dealing with it I’m impressed I can set it to print a selection of small model in two different colours at the same time. Have made Nav light board with red inside and black outside by merging the two. Can scale down or up a model to the size required. I work with easy cad it is quite simple to make models on.
    Their after sales service for advice in operating it is really good.
    I’m extremely happy with mine.
    Any other queries let me know I’ll help if I can
