Cariad progress by Northumbrian Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year ago
I have fitted the gooseneck and made the mast rings and started putting the sails on slow but steady progress

Cariad by Northumbrian Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year ago
HI Dave I have the brass wash port inserts on order from modelling timbers the Belle Margot I have had the same problem with water washing over the gunnels and getting into the hull I ended up having to put some combing around the hatch and putting wash ports in her with modelling there is never a dull moment 😑 Bob

Cariad by Northumbrian Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year ago
I have uploaded some pictures of the battery/servo compartments, I have ballasted it with lead shot placed between two bulkheads it is sealed over with bulldog tape instead of resin it can be removed if I need to add more lead at a later date the battery tray is removable for access to the motor & shaft that's all for now 💭

Cariad progress by Northumbrian Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year ago
The ash deck has been laid and the gunnels are finished all the electrics are installed and working the mast & boom are in progress I have ordered a few brass mast fittings from MODELLING TIMBERS that all for now 💭

Cariad by Northumbrian Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year ago
I have made a bit more progress by making and fitting the skeg & rudder the rudder was made using oak I used Milliput to secure the stock the motor is up & running next I intend putting the ballast in I have made a box between the bulkheads to hold the lead shot once I am happy that it is sitting on the waterline I will seal the shot with fibreglass resin that's all for now folks 👋

WESTBOURNE MODEL CO. by Northumbrian Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year ago
I stopped using them a long time ago I ordered a number 2 sail for my Laser at first they said they had it in stock then the next day they rang and told me that they did not and said they would have to order one from the USA I waited 3 month for delivery I vowed after that never again 💭

Cariad Bristol Bay Cutter by Northumbrian Fleet Admiral!   Posted: 1 year ago
I have made a start on the Chris Brown Cariad i don't get much time so it will be a slow build I did not like the idea of the prop coming out the side of the hull so i have cut a recess out in the stern i will be installing a 385 motor and a 6" 4mm shaft with a 35mm 3 bladed brass prop the deck is cut from 2mm light ply that's all for now folks 👋
