Hi NPJ,
You may find the reference here to LED's and resistors useful.

Ok here we go... forward light example:
I took 1 wire from each led and wrapped a small piece of copper wire round them then soldered into one. Then did the same for the others. Then connected to a 9v battery connector using plastic connection block...
My son had been doing electrical circuits at school and wanted to help me...

I get up this morning and all this help tumbles down. Great stuff fellas, really appreciated and will be read after breakfast.

Will be posting on the site later today following some floating in the bath and measuring up.

I was about to say "still a long way to go", but there again, I read yesterday of an 18 month build...........

I am being patient.....

Thanks to all.
NPJ

New plans - Posted: 15th Oct 2017
My Dad has given me these drawings from a local boat which he did some work in a few years back. He found them while clearing out his workshop!
Could this be the next project?

First real sea trial - Posted: 8th Oct 2017
Well I think she looks perfect!
Sat well in the water and was dry inside.
Crew were not concerned even after a close up chat with a bird!

I know a skipper of a full size trawler in Weymouth of very similar lines and paintwork who would love that.
Response by GrahamP74 on the 11th Oct 2017
Thanks for the positive comments!
Response by RNinMunich on the 11th Oct 2017
Where's the bird?
Did the crew barbecue it? 😲
Very nice boat, congrats👍
BTW: Nice to see a boat from Folkestone, my birth town 😊

Considering selling - Posted: 1st Oct 2017
I've really enjoyed making this model and am considering selling her and moving onto another one. Before I post on an auction site I wondered if anyone would be interested from here...
Response by rolfman2000 on the 2nd Oct 2017
It's a lovely model Graham. What sort of money are you looking for for her ? I would have thought a few of the followers would express an interest in this lovely craft. Best wishes, Dave W 😊
Response by GrahamP74 on the 7th Oct 2017
Hi Would consider offers over £350...

Beautiful work, really real.
Health Zdenek👍😊😉
Response by GrahamP74 on the 17th Jul 2017
Thank you. I'm really happy with it. Fish boxes left to make and some final net detail. Then it's off to the beach for real fishermen to give their seal of approval!!
Response by SelwynWilliams on the 7th Oct 2017
Looks brilliant love the figures.

Weathering - Posted: 11th Jul 2017
Added the numbers and name yesterday and started the weathering process.
Unlike my previous boat (Emily P) which was based on a steel hull I can't go crazy with the rusting! Fibre glass does however fade where water is consistently running so I have added some extra epoxy resin running down the sides from the scuppers and where the v doors, trawl and nets would rub.
I have then used white gloss, brown fence paint and will add some green (for the slime!)
This was applied with a cotton ear bud and then rubbed back with some string.

Crew ready! - Posted: 11th Jul 2017
Thanks to ballast for the great idea to use rubber gloves for oilskins. Really happy with how they look and have added some brown fence paint to them to dirty them up a little..

Batman & Robin in civvies?? 😉
Response by GrahamP74 on the 11th Jul 2017
Close! The one in the suit is Harvey Dent from Batman The Dark Knight...
Still trying to find the shorter one!!
Response by RNinMunich on the 11th Jul 2017
My knowledge of BBC series is 30 years out of date, otherwise I might show my age and tip 'Delboy'! 🤓
Any clues on the packaging, what or who was he sold as?
Manufacturer? ID / mould number on him somewhere?
Now you've 'scritched' my curiosity 🤔😉

White becomes blue! - Posted: 5th Jul 2017
After yesterday's water check I have taken the gantry and wheelhouse off and started the paint job!
Once dried the deck will get a coat of grey..

Also added additional paint effect to the v doors, stern roller and wheelhouse handrails.
Painted the capping white too...
