Hi Gary, - the first name's the same as his, - haven't started mouldering yet though😁. Most of the fittings were made by making male masters and making impressions in modelling clay, baking that, coating the inside with f/glass mould parting wax, the filling them with polyester resin. taken out of the moulds, cleaned up and painted with chrome paint, (there is a section on my runabout building blog showing how it was done). very simple and cheap to do.
The bow T cleat was just brass strip and rod, and flag pole base was brass strip and tube. Spotlight was a modified hardware item (plastic screw cover). I don't have a lathe unfortunately, although I'm looking at some small modelling lathes at present, but don't like the price. There are a few nice Myfords for sale, but they still command a high price.
I do have a large bench drill/mill which gets used for everything, Mill, router, sander, (sometimes 'vertical lathe' for light stuff) press for brushless motor shafts etc. One of the handiest tools is an Austrian EMCOSTAR multi machine, (bench saw, band saw, disc sander, belt sander, jigsaw etc) which I was given,- a perfect tool for modelling. Other than that, everything is just made by hand with ordinary tools.
