    Nice video. Do see why you say a need for a little more ballast.But it looks good on the water.

    Glad i could help Fred,

    She looks good.
    As you say you need more weight to get her lower in the water.

    Nice work.

    ๐Ÿ“ Calling this one Finished

    View All
    Hi One and All
    Well it has been some time since I posted with regards to the boat.

    I have made a mess of the portholes, as when I got round to fitting them I found that I had run out of the brass ones, so I went with the ones in the kit ( may replace them at a later date) and as for the Nav light they are only good for the bin, so I ordered new one's from C/M and when they arrived one was broken so they are sending a new one out.

    Well I am calling this finished and ready for water trials, which I hope will be soon, I will try and take some on water photos and post them up.

    Hi Cashrc

    Yes the early plans do leave a lot out, I have parts that I can not find on the plans left over.

    I also replaced the W/M railing with some 20mm two hole brass ones.

    I think mine is pretty early, as the original plans were faded to the point of almost being unreadable. I ordered a new set from Deans, better plans and a bit more detail.

    Hi Cashrc
    Thank you for your comments, I am sure that you will do a wonderful job on yours, is your kit a later one as mine is one of the early ones.

    One of the things that I did was dump the W/M portholes and replaced them with brass ones, just run out of them for the hull, I also got a brass prop to replace the w/m ones.

    Hi

    I started to do the rigging of the mast, when I got to the point of fixing the mast staying ropes to the bulwark and bowsprit, I found that I did not have any turnbuckles, so this is my take on a turnbuckle.

    ๐Ÿ“ Indoor test Tank

    So this afternoon the wife asked if I could help with the cleaning of the built in test tank, (She has Rheumatoid Arthritis) so as I had to fill the tank to clean it , I felt that it would be a good time to make it into a float test, she just needs a bit of weight on the port side (the boat not the wife), so I think if I move the ESC over to the port side it my be just enough to sort out the list.

    ๐Ÿ“ Decking

    Hi One and All

    First I must say, I take my hat off to you guy's that plank your decks, I just do not know how you do it, I got so mad doing just the small amount that is on this boat.

    As for doing the caulking I started using black card did not for me on this boat, then I tried using black cotton again did not for me on this boat, so in the end I just went with a black marker pen, black ink all over my fingers what a mess.

    Anyway here is my attempt at planking, I will keep trying with planking as my next boat the Lady "T" from MMM has a planked deck.

    Keep Safe all of you.

    I made a lot of mistakes with this attempt, I also made a hash with my setting out of the band stand so that did not help, as you said the more I practice the better it will come, at lest the Lady "T" has the deck marked out for me.

    Hi Fred,
    Planking of the Hulls or Decks is not an easy thing to do.
    But i think yours has come out well.
    Remember the more you do it the better you get at it.
    Good luck with Lady T, just take your time.

    ๐Ÿ“ Deck
    11 months ago by Fred ( Midshipman)
    Flag
    Things have been a bit slow at the moment what with this thing called Christmas coming along.

    You just may remember that I got this kit back in 1996, in the instructions is said cut out the forward deck housing access in the deck so that any ballast that is needed can be placed via this point, no such markings were on my deck, so after building the deck housing I used the housing to make the access frame, this I then fixed to the deck and cut out the access into the deck job done.

    As I have now fixed most of the deck fittings I started to paint the deck, this is were I run into a bit of a problem the paint that I used in the start is so old Nelson had both eyes when I purchased it, and this new paint does not like the old paint, as they used to say on the radio "Back to square one" do I make a round trip of 40 miles for a tin of paint and may be find some other parts that I just may need at some time in the future, or do I look in my old stock for a different colure?

    Time for a lay down.

    What type of paint is it that you used in the bathroom ?
    If it is made for bathrooms then i would of thought that it would be suitable for wet areas and ideal for your model boat.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I will just have a look at the paint tray and see what there is, I just don't want to go down the red oxide, also black is out as the deck hatches are black. the colour that I did our bathroom in would be just right, shame that it is not the right type of paint as I have 3lts leftover ๐Ÿ˜

    If you have plenty of paint in your stock will it be possible to mix up a colour that will suite.
