3D print by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 23 days ago

3D print by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 23 days ago
Was on thingyverse a while ago and printed off a small Titanic life boat scaled it up and printed off a larger version measures approximately 20" long making it 1:18 scale still have the tiller and other bits to print .Cheers Marky

scanned figures by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 23 days ago
Had some figures scanned and scaled up a while ago the first 3D printed one come out the machine yesterday not as defined as the original may have to paint it matt black instead of grey

Just a gray boat now by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Just realised I've been misreading this I kept seeing "just a gravy boat now "I will blame it on the chemicals and not dotage. Cheers Marky

Clyde puffer by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
Thanks Doug ,still a lot to do before the resin stage may go for the glass tissue as i found they use it in the mould making workshop for reinforcement and theres always plenty offcuts .Cheers Marky

Clyde puffer by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
forgot the pictures ,still a bit to do and about 20lb of filler😁 and Doug's elbow grease alas no amber nectar due to the medication Cheers Marky

Clyde puffer by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 month ago
the puffer hull is slowly coming together now the daft questions I am going to use the tights and eze kote resin once I'm at that stage Q1.on the hull there are rubbing strips should these be fitted before or after the tights and resin? Q2 this is daft ,but is there a specific thickness of tights or is it just what's handy ?. Cheers Marky

Marionville Models by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
seemingly they have a new shop out in Livingston

Marionville Models by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
I remember them being on Marionville road I think, it was near to Meadowbank stadium i think they moved out to the Maybury in the late 90s it was a bigger shop but so difficult to get to if you had to use public transport and it tended to close at lunch time if it was closed you could nip into the Maybury roadhouse which was a casino at the time and lose all your money . Cheers Marky

Ship's Boats by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
I think digitalizing the drawings would be the time consuming bit ,if you had a 3D scan of the hull it could be scaled to the desired scale then depending on the printer build dimensions broken down into printable size parts a.Cheers Marky

Ship's Boats by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
should hide the instructions from she who must be obeyed seemingly its something to do with sanitising the drum ??? your guess is as good as mine ,they got some wood coloured pla at the work so may try a bigger one then square off one end so it looks more dingyish ,or else print a full size one boil it and shrink to fit.Cheers Marky

Ship's Boats by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
here is a Titanic lifeboat down loaded free from thingyverse it took about 2hours to print in halves as printer wasn't big enough to do it in a oner cost of material was 56p and no charge for use of the printer I asked in the local library who have a printer and they charge £1 per hour inclusive of material so boat would have been £2,i have cut some bits away as I'm going to alter it and make a dingy for the puffer. Cheers Marky

Bristol pilot cutter mascotte by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hi Ron , I have really enjoyed your build,great wood ,brass and painting skills gives us mere mortals (whittlers)something to aim for .seeing the figure reminded me of your other post, when i next pop into work i will see how there getting on with the figures i was getting scaled up and printed from 1/24 to 1/16 and if there ready post some pictures . Almost forgot what are the dimensions of the build ?. Cheers Marky

Red Oxide Primer! by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
I still have some Craig and Rose red oxide primer (Forth bridge red). Craig and Rose were the company who made the paint for the iconic Forth rail bridge ,you have to thin it down a lot to spray. Cheers Marky

Gloss Varnish? by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Dont know if you want to brush or spray ,Rust-Oleun spray gloss is very good as long as you don't try to put it on to thick (milky sheen)but if you follow the instructions thin coats and drying time between coats it is a good finish. Cheers Marky

Clyde puffer by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
Hope the photos come through this time. Cheers Marky

Clyde puffer by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago
After the bad day at blackrock the fingers are like sausages and finding fiddley stuff difficult the wife offered to make some bits, so she chose the winch to start with "it can't be much harder than cross stitch "measured up and disappeared over the next few days would go to the shed to use the "drillie thing and other sawing things" her words not mine I did see the bread knife head towards the shed, see resulting photos,i think I may have created a monster ,looks like its the crochet hook or knitting pins for me now.was well impressed she did admit to raking through boxes for some bits

Its Spring again! by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 2 months ago

slow progress by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
Hi Doug ,nipping into work tommorow will get the seagull file from Ricky, I think there are also puffins on the file as well. Cheers Marky

slow progress by marky Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 3 months ago
As promised, some pictures as she sits at the moment, lots of fiddle bits to do but with fingers all swollen up will have wait ,3D printed some seagulls which can be seen in some of the pictures .Cheers Marky
