Net drum - Posted: 25th Jun 2017
Wound the spare trawl onto the drum. Used an old washing bag that you put socks in! The material was soaked in PVA glue and orange poster paint. I have added some rings and sewn some thin thread in green and added some of the warp string too which I have frayed. Sprayed the whole thing in hair spray to hold together!

Winch - Posted: 24th Jun 2017
Wound the new warps onto the winch tonight while watching Glastonbury! Used a mix of green poster paint and PVA glue to stain the string. A lot of warps are wire with this green covering. Will add a little rust paint to some area so they look a little worn.

Build coming along well and this certainly looks authentic for a fishing vessel, and the rust will certainly help!

Fibre glassing - Posted: 21st Jun 2017
Decided that this heat would make it an ideal day to pop on a mask and gloves and glass in some of the beams and beds! Added a coat to the gunnels and the transom too.
Also fitted the rudder, used some plumbing pipe which I glassed in.
Deck has also been started as well as the forward deck.

Blocks - Posted: 13th Jun 2017
A little bit of work on the blocks in the afternoon sun! Once set they will be sanded and an eye put in the top. Then the usual paint and rust treatment! Used 0.5mm PVA board

Look capable of being used operationally, are you planning to mechanise the system
Response by GrahamP74 on the 8th Jun 2017
Hi Dave
I wasn't no. I do want them to look the part though!!

Response by Dave M on the 8th Jun 2017
Certainly looks the part. I can see why you would want to test fit
Response by GrahamP74 on the 8th Jun 2017
Been waiting for a few parts to assemble the motor so while waiting I made a start on the other parts that can be done separately.. but it's so tempting just to put it all together to see what she will be like!!

wheelhouse - Posted: 1st Jun 2017
The mould was made by Andy at Models by Design.
I managed to aquire the plans of a GM 33 with the internal layout for the wheel house.
I have copied it in the main!
The cooker does swing!
I downloaded images of radars and radio fronts and stuck them onto painted PVA board.
I used poster paint mixed with 50% PVA glue to paint the interior.
The window surrounds were made from thin PVA board and the attached to the inside and out to replecate the sealed metal unit.
The door slides on runners.

Trawl winch - Posted: 1st Jun 2017
The trawl winch is made from a mix of PVA craftboard, plastic plumbing pipe and wooden kebab skewers!
The end rollers were turned from metal on the lathe. I tried to get the large nut detail on the inside ends.
The warps will be added at a later stage once I have rusted the string!
