Emily P III by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 3 days ago
Starting point!

Emily P III by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 4 days ago
This is another scratch build fishing boat. The hull is a models by design Cygnus GM33. 16th scale. This one will be a pure trawler. I am going for an aft wheelhouse this time! The prop shaft and rudder have been purchased but all other running gear will be shared with Emily P III.

1 / 12 th Scale Figures by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
How’s it going Ballast? Any update?

1 / 12 th Scale Figures by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
Made mine from a couple of figures picked up on eBay.. rubber gloves for oilskins!

Starting point by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
First for a clean and a review of what needs to be replaced!

Volvo Ocean Race by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
I have been lucky enough to acquire a replica VOR model from one of my stores. I intend to restore the damaged parts, add some additional detail and give it a paint job in 'Musto' livery..

How many is to Many by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
RNinMunich... you mention a Kentish fishing boat you have inherited... can I ask you for more details?

Back in the day by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
My dad found these photos of me when I was about 14! Used to help on the day boats...

Fish boxes by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 2 months ago
Baskets turned up today, cut the top section off and given them a coat of paint for a start. Will add handles and some molded fish

Fish boxes by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 3 months ago
Thanks Marky

Fish boxes by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 3 months ago
Just ordered 10 on eBay! £1.35! Just perfect

Fish boxes by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 3 months ago
Brilliant thank you!!!

New plans by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 3 months ago
Yes she could be! Will be very similar to the one I've just finished which I am still littering with and keep consider selling..

Fish boxes by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 3 months ago
I see you also have a black round basket in the photo... I'm looking to make a stack of those in orange... what did you use?

Fish boxes by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 3 months ago
For the stack I made a plastic box and then cut plastic round to add to the sides.. once up to the top I added a fake base to the top and then added the detail of the scuffs and scratches. The single boxes were made in the same way and I added wire to the top and the sides to added the additional detail...

Fish boxes by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 3 months ago
So sad when a boat and crew are lost... a small way I can pay my respects...

Fish boxes by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 3 months 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.

Boating pond by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 3 months ago
In the boating lake at Radnor Park Folkestone

Memorial by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 3 months ago
As a mark of respect of the loss and for a fellow modelmaker the stack of fish boxes I have made for Emily PII has one from DH142...

South Manchester Model Boat Club by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 4 months ago
Great model roady! I remember the Alice Upjohn when she was in service at Dungeness. I still am friends with some of the crew, Dungeness is now home to a Shannon..

Boating pond by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 4 months ago
Fully operational in the boating pond

First real sea trial by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 4 months ago
Thanks RN the bird flew before I got the camera out! Not many working boats left in Folkestone these days...

Lights all wired up by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 4 months ago
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...

Lights all wired up by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi, No I haven't but it's very simple.. The stern Lights are all on the gantry frame. I made a channel in the wood to disguise the wires. They go through a hole in the deck and connect to a 9v battery. The forward lights are all connected to another 9v battery which sits in a mounting on the u derided of the wheelhouse roof. It's very basic but they work and I am more than happy with the effect! The casings for all the lights are scratch built. Sorry it's not very elaborate!

Lights all wired up by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 4 months ago
Final check of lighting. Deck nicely illuminated for night trawling!

New plans by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 4 months ago
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? #Emily PIII

Pond Trials!!! by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 4 months ago
Absolutely brilliant! Well done my friend! It's a great feeling to see them in the water! I've ordered a battery today so mine will be complete very soon!!

First real sea trial by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 5 months ago
Thanks for the positive comments!

First real sea trial by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 5 months ago
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!

Considering selling by GrahamP74 Captain   Posted: 5 months ago
Hi Would consider offers over £350...
