    ๐Ÿ“ Deck

    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.

    Hi Martin 555
    It is a water based emulsion for bathrooms,.

    I have had a look at my stock and have found a light grey that I think will look O.K.

    Fred,
    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.

    Hi Martin555

    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˜

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

    Will be cheeper and a lot safer with this Covid situation.

    Over the last ten days I have only been able to get out to the garage for a short time to work on the boat, I have done most of the cladding on the deck housings and I think that it is an improvement.

    I have enclosed a before and after, looking forward to your comments so don't hold back.

    SWMBO has said the the Ensuite bathroom needs a new coat of paint so that will be next weeks job. ( maybe Battle Ship Grey)

    Hi
    Just a quick update, as the weather has been fine for the last few day's I took opportunity to paint the hull, now these are not the colures that are recommend by Dean's, but they are going to be my new tug fleet colures๐Ÿ‘.

    Hi Cash
    Ron informed me that if I looked at the Check list under Code number the last two numbers are the year of packing, mine is WR20096 and I got her in Sept 96.

    Do you have the wright up from Model Boats?

    Fred, sheโ€™s coming along nicely. Iโ€™m thinking I might have to start working on mine as my winter project. I think mines an older kit too, but I donโ€™t know how old. The plans were so faded I ordered a new set from Deans.
    Iโ€™ll need to post some pics of what I have, Iโ€™m not real happy with a couple things that have already been done to her, especially the rudder horn/tiller. Might be okay, but it gives me the heebie-jeebies when I look at it.๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Thanks' Guys

    Yes I got fed up with just black - grey & red oxide, and as the old eyes are not as good as they were๐Ÿค“ I went with the Post Office Red and Satin Black for the hull and Humbrol 105 Marine Green Matt for the decks.

    I am still working on cladding the deck housings, one thing that I am not happy with it that the starring housing has a vac form canopy and it does not look right to me, as we had a garden canopy that came down in one of the storms I may use some of that or an old hanky to make a new canopy.

    Back in the day when I was deep into Submarines I had an ideaโšก of doing a Gato in pink as in the film Operation Petticoat, but at the time the only gato on the market was made by 32nd parallel and the cost was just to much, I now have the 1/72 gato from Revell that I got when it first came out so I just may use that.

    As yesterday (02/10/2020) was a wet and windy day I moved in doors,
    I turned my hand to the deck winch, now this all white metal, the one thing I did was to replace one of the rods for a brass one just to make it a bit more rigid, when finished it was back out to the garage were I sprayed it satin black.

    ๐Ÿ“ Deck
    4 months ago by Fred ( Warrant Officer)
    Flag
    View All
    I should have put this before "Got fed up"

    One thing that I did was to mark out the hatch openings from the plan so that I would have all the deck beams in place before fixing the decks,

    Deck fitted, I cut out the hatch opening's in the stern deck, now in the instructions it mentioned a hatch opening in the fore deck, but there are no markings for were to cut out the opening, so I decided to leave it as is.

    With all the deck beams fitted and deck fitted I found out that the shaft was short by a few inches which put the motor under the deck, also the rudder servo was also in the wrong place. (not a good thing)

    (Think that this is now back on track๐Ÿคž)

    Things in the wrong place in my mind I believe most of us have put items in the wrong place .Then had to move them or figure a way to get at the item if access is needed.It won't be the first or last time it happens.I think it is what it is.

    I got fed-up with trying to get the decks to fit with out filler but in the end I got them to fit, I then moved on to the deck housings, as they are just a series of box's.
    I painted a few of them but just did not like the out come, now as I had some strip left over from another boat I decided to use that to clad them.

    ๐Ÿ“ Motor Mount and Battery tray
    4 months ago by Fred ( Warrant Officer)
    Flag
    View All
    I must mention that before I fitted the deck beams I fitted the motor mount.
    I used the one that is supplied in the kit, I fixed some of the 1/4 x1/4 timber to the underside of the mount, as I am not a fan of the hook and rubber band method for fixing of the motor, I like to fix my motor's with a strip of brass over the motor and then bolted to the motor mount, (sorry I do not have any photos) the motor is a 385 from dean's. I lined up the motor with an alignment tool that a mate made for me.

    I then moved onto the battery box I glued some ply into the hull and again I used the good old 1/4 x1/4 to make the box you can see that I used an old eight cell battery just for sizing this will be replaced with a six volt when the time comes.
    I also used spring lever connectors as a temp fix, these will be replaced at a later date.

    Next time fixing the Deck.๐Ÿคž
