    Tug from the past
    At about the time I retired and was looking for an indoor hobby I noticed on that well known auction site an unused tug kit for sale, reasonably priced, no it was cheap! I bought it and was surprised and pleased that it was better than expected. The kit was from PBM Patrick & Blunt Models Ltd I cannot remember what I paid but the original price tag still attached to what is left of the box shows ยฃ38.99, were things ever that cheap? Hull construction was balsa sandwhich, deck and superstructure balsa and plastic mouldings which had degenerated and had to be remade by myself i.e wheelhouse and funnel and other bits. Although I completed her with geared motor and steering she has never been in the water. She sits much loved in a glass case in my bedroom and hopefully sits there for much longer. Regards ChrisG
    (Working Vessel) Doris
    Doris is built plank on frame and is a copy of the Thames Bawley by the same name, number LO284. The original which is still afloat in Gillingham Kent was built in 1909 in Harwich by J & H Cann for Leigh on Sea publican Mr Choppin who named the ship after his favourite daughter. Dimensions of the original 40ft length 14ft beam 5ft 6in draft, weight not known. The model is a dream and looks really good, she sails well and the motor is only to help her 'about' when she is feeling challenging and to bring her ashore if and when the wind dies. I have no r/c control of the sails which is something I am still considering as a consequence she goes everywhere on a broad reach her best sailing position anyway. I do hope you like her thanks for looking Chris G (8/10)
    (Tug Boat) Loch Ranza
    I bought an unfinished Graupner paddle steamer kit which was in a bit of a state and spent many happy hours making her look loved. The hull and paddle wheels were in an acceptable condition but the deck and superstructure left lots to be desired. The previous owner had purchased the motor which was 50.1 geared and pushes the boat along well all other bits including 'smoke' brass portholes and new superstructure added by myself. She was a delight to finish and looks an absolute dream on the water. (Motor: MFA 919D series) (8/10)
    (Working Vessel) Wellard
    I decided to build a canal/river maintenance barge and had a Thames lighter grp hull as a starter. This was too long so I took a chunk out of the middle and joined the two halves. The decks, hold, cabin and the rest was very much scratchbuilt. There is a lot about this model that would make either the purist or the local H&S man cringe but it was fun and looks great on a shelf in the workroom or even better on the odd trip to the lake. The Hiab crane although in wrong place I think really finishes off the model well the crane and the loo paper haha. Hope someone out there likes it. Regards (5/10)
    Andree v Bretagne trawler
    Purchased as an abandoned project, in fact not even started, price reflected this as it was cheap. it is a Robbe St Germain I believe no longer available. This is about the eighth model I have built and I reckon the most rewarding, lots of opportunities to personalise the ship. Lack of plans from the seller made the manufacture of this planked hull, a challenge. She looks lovely on show at home and is a dream on the water with no problem in very rough water. if you find one for sale go for it. (Motor: 919d series 4.5-15v) (ESC: Viper 15) (10/10)

    Managed to get a bit done this week, you know how it is, `shall we get some Christmas bits before the shops get busy`? don't know where everyone gets their money from I thought we were in times of austerity.
    Anyway I went ahead with planking the fore deck and yes blackening the edges of each plank seems to give the desired effect hope it doesn't spoil itself when varnished. I have also started to make some of the hatches etc but am still hesitating when it comes to building the wheelhouse, serious case of `chicken` ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ I think a large scotch and throwing caution to the wind might help.
    If anyone UK based is interested I put a small order on Cornwall Model Boats for some bits Sunday 27th pm and received the package Tuesday 29th a.m. that is Cornwall to Nottingham, I think that is excellent service by both the supplier and their carrier.

    I believe that they are there to stop the rear of the boat going deep into the water on a quick `getaway` in motoring terms a `racing start`.
    I could be wrong if so I apologise, they should be on your current project and I think they look good, but personal choice.
    I must say she looks smashing.

    Managed to get into my garage and decided to reduce the thickness of the strips for the foredeck, liked Roy`s suggestion with the jig based on two steel rules which worked well but as I have a lot to do it was a bit of a faff.
    So belt sander clamped in the workmate and having carefully marked each plank at 4mm proceeded to reduce the planks width. First few took time but the more I did the quicker and easier the job became ending up with the required 30 that I was happy with.
    The only downside is that I have no fingerprints left on three fingers on my left hand๐Ÿ˜
    I intend to use a black felt marker to blacken all edges giving a scale caulking look when sanded.

    Thanks Roy
    Never rains but when it pours, just went into the garage to find 2 metal rulers and the other bits to replicate your jig idea and one of the cables on the up and over door decided to give up the ghost and the door dropped pinning me half in and half out of the garage. A neighbour kindly lifted the door and rescued me, I could have been trapped for hours๐Ÿ˜ .
    So at the moment no rulers, no jig, and no access to the garage plus a very sore back, I am thinking of taking up knitting.

    I have `bit the bullet` and glued the ply fore deck onto the hull I just hope that I do not need access later, I always find this a difficult decision but one that has to be made if progress is to happen. My next task is to plank the deck, I was hoping to use teak to match the real thing but the cost even though the model is small is a bit above my budget.
    I have some appropriate coloured planks in stock but they are about 6mm wide and I will have to trim them to the required 4mm. Not sure how I will do this but am going to try jamming the belt sander upside down in the workmate and carefully sand each plank to size.
    I am sorry but I am going to close, problems either with this website, my laptop or user error, probably the latter.
    I hope to continue later.

    I am tired of rubbing down and filling and finally called a halt to it and gave the model a coat of sanding sealer. Then fitted the prop shafts and rudder shafts then a little more filling and sanding before a coat of sealer/undercoat which always shows the missed bad bits.
    I get a little peeved these days having to find paints that do not have unfortunate reactions with other paints, I like Humbrol finish and have used that for years since building railway engines but most outlets only seem to sell preperation paints of the water based variety, and that stuff in my opinion is a travesty. I did find something fit for purpose in the garage goodness knows how old it is.
    I bit the bullet this week and started cutting panels out of 2mm ply as templates for the wheelhouse and other topside accommodation to make sure that they all look right before cutting out of mahogany. I think it will take much time and a lot of patience before this will be anywhere near finished, I am no cabinet maker!

    Oh! such a shame, devastating but recoverable. Masking tape can be a nightmare for many reasons I have been using Tamiya for a while, it seems the stickier they are the more trouble they cause.
    Everything will be great in the end she is still a model to be proud of and in time it will be funny story to tell.

    Hello Colin
    The skegs are soldered to 2.5m brass tubes within which is a 1.5m brass rod onto which the prop will fit. It is irrelevant really as I have decided that this is going to be a static display model. I hope that has not spoiled any enthusiasm for the build, I have lots of models with motors and r/c gear and rarely get to the lake to use them so it seems a waste of expensive electronics for no purpose plus it is a bit twee down below.
    The props I found in my scrap box and are 30+ year old supplied by Billings, never ceases to amaze me what I have in various scrap boxes ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ I bet you are the same.

    The planking is done but needs lots of `caulking` sanding and general tidying up I think I may apply some sanding sealer before sanding as the wood I have used seems very coarse grained and soft so this process would no doubt harden it up, either that or a couple of coats of GRP resin, to be decided.
    Meanwhile Santa came early on Tuesday and bought me lots of lovely brass bits from Cornwall so I have decided to check these out and have started with props, shafts and making brass skegs and sorting this lot out. I also had delivered an HA boat stand which I am in the process of building. I like these and used one on the previous build.
    I am really enjoying this build loads to think about and plan, I continue to be hesitant about the superstructure and particularly the wheelhouse and how much to reveal of `down below`hopefully it will all work out well and in proportion.

    Absolutely amazing varnish work, difficult to find better and I think the white bottom will enhance the varnish work and not detract from it, my opinion only I hasten to add.

    Hello Trev, I certainly hope you are right, I ordered cedar strip specifically for this build previous to this have always used harder wood, I think cedar strip has many good points it will bend easily and is easy to work but the finish is rougher than expected. I am no purist and have nothing against the likes of P38 to achieve the finish I need in fact I consider it to be like the old caulking but have usually started the finishing process from a better place, we will see.

    Apart from getting over a boring virus this week hasten to add not covid I have been progressing with the planking, the photo shows some not overly pretty work but it will look better soon, I notice in the background of the photo a tin of P38 which will almost certainly help me to achieve a smooth hull for painting.
    I spent a happy couple of hours yesterday online shopping for brass portholes, stanchions and other pretty bits which I will hopefully have delivered before U.K. post goes the way of most other things currently, down the proverbial pan.
    The important thing is I am engrossed in something I love doing and at the best time of the year to be doing it.

    Hello
    When I replied to your post mentioning cya glue which you are having problems with I hadnt realised that you were in the States and not familiar with U.k. adhesives, sorry for that.
    I have attached photos of the label with the product description which possibly could help you source something similar in your area. 500 ml costs me less than ยฃ10 which thanks to our current exchange rate equates to less than $10. That would be plenty to complete a good sized model boat. Hope it might give you something to consider.

    Hello Trev
    The plan came from Sarik models as mentioned by Roy. It comes in two large sheets and is very clear to work from. The plan was designed by D Metcalf in 1991.
    I have chosen the sizes outlined as a lot of the clever bits, portholes, stanchions and other bits that I am unable to make myself are available to buy online.
    Thanks everybody for the interest, I have never had so many emails, wonderful.

    I have had an interest in Dunkirk Little Ships since assisting a very good friend to move his from Cookham nr Maidenhead down the Thames through the City of London to Sheerness and out into the North Sea and up to Lowestoft and into Oulton. The trip which took several days is one of the most memorable of my life.
    When looking for a new project and with 1/24 plans available for Bluebird of Chelsea which is also a Dunkirk Little Ship I decided to attempt this as my next build.
    She was built in the early 1930`s for Malcolm Campbell the holder of many speed records on land and water and was 52ft long 11ft 4in beam 4ft 6in draught and displacement of 23.4 tons, powered by twin Perkins diesels.
    She was restored after a busy life including sterling work off the Dunkirk beaches during the WW11.
    If I can do the model justice she should be an absolute beauty to build.
    I have made a start in the usual way by cutting the frames and starting the old favourite plank on frame.
    Lots to do but the right time to get started.
