    Made a start on the Cruciform Bollards, made using brass tubing, which passes through the deck into a wooden block which is cemented to the underside of deck for added strength should I ever want to use the bollard for towing. I just need to fill the gaps & add some end caps on the tubes & then sand/prime & then cement in place on the deck.

    added some foot grips to the bow using some styrene strips & finished off the inner edge of bulwarks, next job is the fitments for deck such as samson posts/bollards etc! Once i have all the pieces in place i will then be priming the deck ready to paint!

    Hi guys!,

    Bit of an (overdue!) update...

    CABIN:
    So i made the cabin, which i remade as I wasnt happy with first attempt, the new version much better, next step is to add a door which will be able to be opened/closed, eventually I will add detailed interior with lighting, for now im just working on the hinges!

    BULWARK SUPPORTS/RAIL
    Finally completed all the bulwark supports, Ive also added a rail (pics to follow).

    REAR HATCH/COVER/BENCH
    The rear hatch cover is the access point for the rudder controls. I made the hatch & cover using ply & for the bench I used some planking, I decided to make the bench in 3 separate pieces to allow it to be removed with ease for access to hatch. I just need to finish trimming the bench & give a good sanding!


    PORT HOLES
    These port holes will be used on the front cabin & were made using a rubber grommet which I sliced in half then fixed a copper washer to the topside, i just need to add some clear perspex for the glass.

    Ive also made the Freeports for the deck along with the rope/anchor holes etc, pics to follow.

    hi guys!

    Thanks for comments ๐Ÿ˜Š

    in regards to questions below:

    The rudder can be removed, yup, the decks on TIDs are indeed steel, but i wanted to do mine with planking as i wanted to be posh! (just kidding!) But I've decided to no longer plank the deck, I tried to make a start but soon realised this was going to be a VERY difficult & long task, main reason is due to the bulwark being in the way, usually when adding planking to a deck its done before adding the bulwark so you can get a very neat fit around the edging, but with the hull i have this was not an option as the bulwark is part of the main mould. So i decided to pass as i didn't want to make a mess of it.

    My TID will not be modelled on any particular TID, i decided before the build that i was going to make it "my own" ..im still deciding on a name for her! The colour scheme for the hull will be Red (bottom), Dark Green (middle) & black (top), the stack & deck will be the same colour green as used on the hull & the wheelhouse will be the standard ivory colour.

    I've spent the last few days prepping the deck (Filling / Sanding... LOTS of sanding!) to get a smooth finish prior to spraying. I also trimmed the bottom of the superstructure so it sits flush on deck. I also finished the rest of bulwarks supports, just need to add front plate to each one now!

    Few more pics of the Superstructure placed on deck, the stack isn't fixed yet as I'm still finishing it off & the bulwark supports I'm also finishing off with the front plate on each one before i fix them to the deck. I'm planning to spray the deck/inner bulwark at weekend providing i manage to get all the supports finished & fixed! ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Hi Tizdaz
    are you basing your model on a particular TID tug?
