    ๐Ÿ“ Lights wired up, sound card onboard, accessory function check completed
    17 days ago by Cashrc ( Captain)
    Flag
    View All
    Hi Yโ€™all. Did a little more today. The lights were soldered up to a Graupner SXM switch. This is a neat device, it allows you to run 4 different banks of lights from 1 channel and a 3 position switch. They are still being produced by Graupner, and itโ€™s 27.99 dollars. Easy to set up, works flawlessly. The part number is 3971.
    Iโ€™ve also added sound from a MrRCsounds sound card. Donโ€™t think Iโ€™ll use the engine sound this time, just the foghorn and bell.
    All my major electronics save the esc are mounted in the superstructure. Easier to get ready pondside, at least it is for me. Only drawback is that if I lose THIS superstructure, all my electronic bits will go with it. Iโ€™ll need some really good magnets and a mechanical attachmentโ€ฆpins, nylon screws, something that will keep at least one end tied down mechanically. Oh, checked motor and esc, thatโ€™s working well too. Just need to finish the helm and a few odds and ends and sheโ€™s ready!!

    Iโ€™m probably going with one motor and prop, primarily for ease of operation and reliability. Three props would look good though!!

    If you take a look in my harbour Cash you will see my Grimmershorn, not as good as yours, just bulit straight from the box, regarding ballast, I only had a 12v 7amp battery in, and it needed 60grms of lead in the stern, I've since sold it as I never really liked it to sail, and it was very bulky to travel with, hope this helps you a bit.๐Ÿ‘

    Hi Doug. I think your grandfather was right about bigger hardware, make sure it doesnโ€™t come loose..(a moment of silence for the crew of the original PT15s superstructure)๐Ÿ˜
    Iโ€™ve had a few good ideas handed to me by a couple of members of this board, going to think about it and see what works. The superstructure on this boat WILL be battened down securely, I can guarantee that!!
    I think sheโ€™ll be stable, there is a lot of hull under the waterline. Not looking forward to dragging her upstairs to the test tank but itโ€™s what needs to be done.
    Next project? I donโ€™t know. Probably first thing I need to do is revamp my shop for better storage of completed boatsโ€ฆthen, I need to really sit back and see what boats I want to keep and what I want to trade/sell. When I used to fly it was the same. Id build a ton of models over the course of a couple of years, only to find that realistically, I only flew a few of them a lot, and the rest were once in a while birds. Same with my boats. I have a couple that I just wear out, and several that I run off and on, and a couple that get splashed once in a blue moon..
    I received 2 kits for Christmas this year..an Italeri Vosper 77 that will be converted to RC, and a Deans Marine Kristina, a nice little herring drifter. I have a Midwest Jim Wilder tug in my โ€œstashโ€, really thinking about that as Iโ€™ve never done plank on frame, and I think from looking at the kit that it might be a very good introduction to that side of boat modelling.
    Anyway Doug, keep your fingers crossed, I should have the Grimm splashed in about 3 weeks!!

    Hi Pete, thanks for the reply. Yep, that is a 1961 Stude Hawk..her name is โ€œPrettyโ€ coined by my daughter when she was 5, weโ€™ve had the car for a little over 10 years. Original 289, transmission changed to 200r4 auto a few years ago. Sheโ€™s my grocery getter, car show car and that long hood makes a heck of a plans holder!!
    Did you build a Grimmershorn? If so, any recollection what she ballasted to?
    Have a good evening Pete!

    Looks like your fitting a lot more goodies in your Grimmershorn than I did Cash, and I'm sure it will be a lot better for it.

    Honk Hoooonk! Outa the way ducks, and anyone else, Cap'n Cash iza COMIN' THRU!!
    Nice job Cash๐Ÿ‘ All that's missing now is the ram-bock bow ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜
    Apropos "Iโ€™ll need some really good magnets and a mechanical attachmentโ€ฆpins, nylon screws, something that will keep at least one end tied down .."
    As Grandad used to say (who was actually a very skilled Master Carpenter who built a lot of intricate church furniture): "If all else fails use bloody great nails!"
    Reckon he might have picked that up while servicing early tanks in WW1.
    I guess though that Grimmershorn won't be making such violent turns as your PT Boat did.
    I hope not cos she might fall over on the door handles if she does!
    That was a productive 8 months๐Ÿ‘
    So what's next what's next on the McKinney yard slipway?

    It is loud. Iโ€™m not using the engine sounds for now, the horn and maybe the ships bell. Think Iโ€™m gonna cruise her around in stealth mode once sheโ€™s fully trimmed, sneak up on a couple of our members doing more talking than boating and let โ€˜em have it with the foghorn!!๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
    Hopefully I wonโ€™t get thrown in๐Ÿ˜
    Thanks for the kind words Peter. Most people on this board have much more boat modeling experience than I do, so I appreciate the comments when I do well, and also when I screw something up!!๐Ÿ˜‚

    ๐Ÿ“ Mast done, funnel mast and lights installed
    18 days ago by Cashrc ( Captain)
    Flag
    View All
    Hi yโ€™all. Got the mast finished up. I shortened it a bit to make it easier so store and to transport. I painted bot the mast and funnel red, then installed the light fixtures, bulbs and wiring. I had to cut a channel in the backside of the mast to hide the wires, then hit that with another coat of paint. I also extended the radar arm up a bit, and finished installing all bulbs.
    Iโ€™m at the point to where I need to finish up under decks, and cut and solder the bulb leads prior to hooking up to a Graupner SXM electronic switch. I thought Iโ€™d have her in the water by next weekend, but thereโ€™s still more to be done, plus I need to touch up a few oopsies and finish up a couple of details before Iโ€™m satisfied with her. Ohโ€ฆballast. Need that too!!

    ๐Ÿ“ Radar, windlass and liferaft station installed

    Hi yโ€™all, Merry day after Christmas!!
    I spent a good part of the day modifying a Lego into a radar housing. Itโ€™s a little short, but the radar works so thereโ€™s that. I was going to install a Graupner anchor windlass that Iโ€™d already built and painted, but I thought it didnโ€™t look quite right so I used the kit parts to build one, but I traced the parts on plasticard instead of using wood for the housing. I also installed the life raft station.
    Sheโ€™s close!! Next thing is the mast.

    ๐Ÿ“ Ladders lights and such
    1 month ago by Cashrc ( Captain)
    Flag
    View All
    Hi Yโ€™all. I decided to take some time this morning and finish my ladders, and work on some of the lighting. I had started on one ladder last week. I decided to make it easier on me by using brass tube and small split pins to assemble the ladder then solder it up. I had soldered the first 3 steps then decided that, since I have a mechanical attachment using the split pins, ca glue would do the job just abs out as well, so I caโ€™d the bottom steps and completely built the second ladder sans solder. Worked out nicely. I then painted and installed the ladders.
    I had built sideboards for the port/starboard nav lights from plastic sheet instead of the ply in the kit. These were painted gray and glued in place. The kit comes with solid brass โ€œlightsโ€ that are supposed to be painted up and installed, but I want my lights to light up, or at least have the option to do so. I ordered some light fixtures in the right diameter from Harbor Models in California. Theyโ€™re not terribly expensive, and you can remove the lens from the fixture, paint the fixture, then reinstall the lens..so thatโ€™s what I did. You could also leave the lamp fixture natural brass if wanted. I then drilled thru the sideboard and hull, then glued in the lamps.
    I also decided to do a working searchlight. Now, the Grimmershorn kit does not come with a nicely molded searchlight like the old Graupner and RoMarine/Robbe kits did. Instead, thereโ€™s a sheet of abs moldings that the body is located on, you cut that out and build the thing up from that and bent brass wire. Ugh. Fortunately I had a Robbe searchlight kit in my stash, I built and painted it up with bulb and wiring installed, then attached the assembly to the upper cabin roof.
    I have more to do, some other fittings and deck equipment, then itโ€™s on to the mast.
    Ohโ€ฆthanks for all the wonderful comments, they are much appreciated ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hi everybody. Had a little time today to finish up and install the rails I bent up a few days ago. Nothing earth shattering, just test fit, drilled holes, and installed. The upper railing on the roof was the only one I had to solder up, the platform for the rearward white nav light is a repurposed Lego. I have to solder up the ladders and make up some smaller handrails, then itโ€™s on to the mast and lights.

    Hi Peter. Iโ€™m thinking sheโ€™ll be ready by end of January, maybe early February. I keep finding things to take fault with and โ€œdo-overโ€. I think once the rails and mast are finished then the rest of the topside details will go fairly quickly, then itโ€™s a simple matter of radio install and ballast. Well, it SHOULD be simple. Weโ€™ll see..๐Ÿ˜

    ๐Ÿ“ Starting brasswork
    1 month ago by Cashrc ( Captain)
    Flag
    View All
    Past 2 evenings Iโ€™ve started the brasswork, railings and such. The upper railings werenโ€™t that hard to do once I figured out my angles. The forward cage, which I thought would be easier, turned out a little more difficult than I thought. I decided to glue the fwd inner uprights as I was pretty sure I would end up desoldering the upright they were being soldered to. There are brass bushings that are supposed to go into the holes drilled for the rails, but I decided not to use them, the rails are glued in directly. All this was built in situ, I drilled the holes for the rails and jigged/soldered them together on the boat. Since itโ€™s a wood cabin and not abs, thereโ€™s no worry about hot brass melting plastic.
    I have quite a bit more railings and hand rails to bend up, bit more soldering, then itโ€™s on to other details.

    Hi Cash.
    The Dรผsseldorf is a super boat to build especially with all of the functions.
    I have been working on the house in Hungary since my move but now that winter is here, I am spending more time on her. I have just completed the wiring diagram to allow for the 16 required channels. I am now starting to figure out how I can make a tidy job of the wiring to avoid birds nests. I am waiting for a label printer to arrive from Amazon to make this job a little easier. I will be updating the blog soon.

    I had the day off today, so I repainted the bulwarks, touched up the deck and got the new rub rail installed. Itโ€™s not perfect, but it fit and laid down much better, stretched around the bow with very little lifting, and I was able to do the entire circumference of the hull with one piece and one joint. Iโ€™m happy!!

    Hi yโ€™all, Iโ€™ll keep this brief as itโ€™s 1 am here ( woke up at 1230 canโ€™t sleep). I got the hull flange cleaned up, trimmed a little better and sanded. I also cut the freeing ports out of the bulwarks. My goal is to try to finish the repaint tomorrow and get the new rub strip installed, once thatโ€™s done to my satisfaction I can resume the build from where I left off.

    Hi yโ€™all. The past week I was sidelined with an upper respiratory infection AND pinkeye!! I felt better toward the weekend,so I spent a couple of hours removing the old rubrail and associated adhesive. The original rubbing strip did not want to fit well, and in my frustration I over glued it. I was successful at getting all removed. I found a c channel rubber strip off Amazon that is very close to the same dimensions, itโ€™s a thinner material but testing shows it lays in place much better!! Once I finish sanding and repainting it should install with less issues and much less adhesive.

    Thanks Rick. I feel better, but itโ€™s a case of 2 steps forward, a doubt a half step back. Donโ€™t think Iโ€™ll get much done this weekend hopefully some during next week.

    Hello gentle readers. In our last installment, our hero found himself thwarted and frustrated by the seems-so-simple task of installing windows in the superstructure of the Grimmershorn. Ashamed, he withdrew to building more familiar modelsโ€ฆwill he prevail? WILL HE???!?!!๐Ÿ˜‚

    Okay. So, if yโ€™all remember I really botched up installing the forward window/frame assemblies in my Grimmershorn. The windows and frames are molded together as a unit, all in one large sheet. I botched cutting one or two out and then made it worse when I tried to fix them, resulting in a mess. What Iโ€™ve decided to do is to remove all the glazing, sand and respray. the superstructure, and then Iโ€™ll glaze all the windows from the inside. Itโ€™s cheating, I know, biput itโ€™ll look okay. Also, Iโ€™ve removed the rubber rub rail from the hull, as it just didnโ€™t fit to my liking. I have what looks like a better fitting rubber channel coming in a week or so. I need to sand the heck out of the flange, and trim it up. This will result in a repaint of the black part of the hull, but I want this boat right, at least to my standards of โ€œrightnessโ€.
    This is going to take a while, and Iโ€™m not hurrying this along, as thatโ€™s what got me in a bind last time I worked on the boat. I figure itโ€™ll be after Christmas when sheโ€™s finished, so the updates might be slow, but theyโ€™ll be here. I have a couple of pics of the sanding and first coats of the superstructure.
