Fish boxes by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 1 day ago
Made a stack of boxes and some that I will add some fish too also! Julie Jean is a trawler that my Dad fitted out and put the engines in and fellow modelmaker Ballast will note the nod given to his own model of DH142.

1:16 scale figures for a model trawler ? by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 5 days ago
Looking for crew for your Tiger were you?? 😉 BTW: if you're going to put a sound module in the Tiger tank and want genuine sound bites: start up, (running with squeaking tracks), and stop, idle, shut down, gun fire, heavy machine gun fire: I have a whole directory of such sounds in wav or mp3 format. Can send if you want. Cheers Doug 😎

1:16 scale figures for a model trawler ? by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 6 days ago
i mentioned this method before on another site and was shot down about copyright ,anyway method is if you have a figure take it to a copy shop where it can be scanned and then 3D print at the scale required the other way is to get cheap toy soldiers as in toy story cut them into bits mix and match limbs scan the hybrids and print at the required scale .the asda up in my neck of the woods has a scanner that you stand in and get a model of yourself printed no copyright issues all the crewv could be clones of the scanned person

1:16 scale figures for a model trawler ? by bilzin Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 6 days ago
Looked just about everywhere so far and the only ones in that scale are a tad "pantomimish" (won't mention any manufacturers) I had the crew for my USCG lifeboat made by Realmodelpilots.com but they are a bit pricey although the detail is magnificent Any suggestions would be gratefully received Bill

Question by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 18 days ago
Whilst things are sticking and drying ,I noticed in the book it mentions "at bow and stern were short "turtle deck" covers ,the drawings not very clear and looking on internet got lots of info about garden decking. So question is,is it a curved cover as seen on the bows of trawlers? or am I barking up the wrong tree. Any help appreciated book also says these were removed later on in her career so I can omit them if need be. Cheers Marky

Brixham trawler IBEX by bellman1942 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 24 days ago
Many thanks everyonefor the various advice I`ve decided on a bulb fin keel, when requesting advice on keel weight I should have mentioned the hull is 42in lg this was an oversight😋, I`m now drg.shadows from the plan quite a laborious task but interesting. bellman

Hi Bellman My Club sail several similar boats as well as an Ibex. They are all fitted with detachable keels which are fitted prior to sailing but can be removed for transportation and display. Our sailing waters are large and exposed and without the keels the models would not be able to be sailed. On the water the keels can not be seen. I tried a long keel on my Cariad and it was not a success as the keel tended to keep the model in a straight line. I now use a detachable bulb keel. The amount of lead will depend on your model and its overall weight. The bulb keels are a fibreglass moulding that we fill with lead to bring the model to waterline after inserting fore and aft threaded rod into the bulb. You will need to have holes in the keel to let the rods thro and long enough to be above the waterline. I fit a plastic tube and wood support inside. A washer and nut hold the keel in place. Before filling with Resin weigh the resin in the tin and remove that amount of lead from the bulb. Once set I use silicon to make a good seal between the bulb and hull and which remains attached to the bulb. Attached are pics of my Cariad.

Exactly my thought! 😲 There must be a better way to ballast it.

A Brixham trawler with a bulb and fin keel would look rather odd though wouldn't it ?👍

Brixham trawler IBEX by RNinMunich Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Maybe bellman, but wouldn't it look a bit daft? 🤔 Hide it under yer raincoat 'til it's in the water 😉 Happy building, and even Happier sailing👍

A detachable bulb keel will result in a more stable sailing experience. The further away the weight is from the centre of buoyancy the better.

Brixham trawler IBEX by bellman1942 Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 month ago
Many thanks all still wonder if fin and bulb is better than internal ballast🤔
