Hull now painted by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 5 days ago
So Emily helped me spray the hull and I like the colours that she suggested! Name and registration boards will be added later..

Another check! by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 10 days ago
Could resist a quick check to see how she looks! The real Emily is happy with daddy’s work!!

Deck by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 10 days ago
I’ve fitted the deck and painted. I have also painted the internal shelves for the electrics and added my name and build details to one of the deck beams! The deck is not glued down yet. I have used plastic board and painted with a tile paint to seal.

Forward gantry by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 10 days ago
Made from brass pipe and copper flats plate. Added all the lights and is now ready for a final spray.

New winch by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 21 days ago
Thanks! I was very lucky to be “allowed” the time!

New winch by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 24 days ago
I was intending to use a winch from a previous model however I had a spare couple of hours and it was raining so I made a new one! Will add the warps which will hide the bright drums so no need to rust!!

Ballast by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 26 days ago
So I’ve just tested the hulk in the water and she is sitting pretty! I filled the keel with cement which has brought her down to the water line. Tested the electrics too and she moves nicely... once the cement has dried I will give the hull a seal of paint on the inside and then it’s deck on time!

Quick mock up! by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 30 days ago
Thanks, winch is made too, just the forward gantry really and a paint job along with detail for the deck..

Quiet month by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 30 days ago
Thanks RNinMunich! I am now the retail regional operations manager for the Helly Hansen group in the UK. So now I look after Helly Hansen as well as Musto!

Quick mock up! by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 1 month ago
Got the main deck beams fitted today and the servo holder. Offered up the wheelhouse and gantry which have been made during the winter to see how they look! Pretty happy with so far!

Quiet month by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 1 month ago
A two week holiday, promotion at work and getting the spring cleaning done has meant little time for building in March.. However the suns out and as I said to my wife it’s the perfect weather for fibre glassing!! Spending some time this weekend fitting the deck beams and shelves so the structure below deckline is finished!

Deck and navigation lights by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 2 months ago
Totally agree! Also when you only have a few moments between other jobs!

Deck and navigation lights by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 2 months ago
Little job just to pass the time!

Crab Pots in progress ! by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 2 months ago
They look great! Was wondering how you were getting on as you haven’t updated for a while!

Gantry by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 3 months ago
Constructed the aft gantry from wooden square dowel and 1mm plastic. This will be sprayed white and then rusted..

Wheelhouse by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 3 months ago
Painted and interior fitted. Pleased with the door sliders. Additional exhaust housing will be in sliver colourway...

Wheel house construction by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 3 months ago
I have started to make the wheelhouse from 3mm flexboard. This is easy to cut and fix together. The door has been constructed with wooden coffee sticks (thank you cafe Nero!)

Emily P III by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 3 months ago
Starting point!

Emily P III by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 3 months 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 Admiral   Posted: 5 months ago
How’s it going Ballast? Any update?

1 / 12 th Scale Figures by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 5 months ago
Made mine from a couple of figures picked up on eBay.. rubber gloves for oilskins!

Starting point by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 5 months ago
First for a clean and a review of what needs to be replaced!

Volvo Ocean Race by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 5 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 Admiral   Posted: 5 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 Admiral   Posted: 5 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 Admiral   Posted: 5 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 Admiral   Posted: 6 months ago
Thanks Marky

Fish boxes by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 6 months ago

Fish boxes by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 6 months ago
Brilliant thank you!!!

New plans by GrahamP74 Admiral   Posted: 6 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..
