    Hello all,
    For all those interested and for those it may help, I attach images of another plan sheet for Hunan I have found showing a folding bulwark.

    Not had time to study it fully yet. Hope I can comprehend its working to make it.

    Have just been checking my book of merchant ship construction, there is no mention of folding bulwark up to the 1942 publication date, but a really useful book of reference to ship building.
    See the pictures.
    Cheers Colin.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.

    Hello John

    Thank you for looking through your new books!

    The picture you have uploaded is indeed a curious and interesting vessel. I have never seen such before. Could make a great ahs unusual model.

    I believe I have the cargo winches sorted and hope to make those next week. Now to sort an anchor winch.

    I have asked a number of modellers about folding bulwarks and I have been met with no idea expression each time.
    Obviously not something modellers bother with out would seem.

    Regards

    Toby

    hi Toby I have received 2 books I was expecting and I am sorry but there isn't any information on folding bulwarks amongst them โ€ฆ big side track though; they are on about turret ships and these look really really interesting, possibly a future build methinks.

    I will keep looking for information for you,.

    Thank you. I have indeed scrolled to that and it is the file that downloaded without telling me it was or had so.
    In the index page 200 mentions collapsible bulwarks and this is found actually on page 212 in the pdf. it seems to refer to lifeboats and albeit a few pages several are blocked from view as are some of the drawings. I believe it said one has to be a member in order to see those pages.
    I don't think that the information concerns the ship's bulwark but rather the side of a ship's lifeboat.

    What was it that you read?
    Am I yet in the wrong link.
