MV TEAKWOOD by SelwynWilliams Commander   Posted: 2 days ago
where do you get hulls from to alter?

Excelsior by SelwynWilliams Commander   Posted: 3 days ago
I was given a copy of Dunkirk for Christmas but not got around to viewing it. You might spot some modern buildings and modern boats in the background at Weymouth.

Excelsior by SelwynWilliams Commander   Posted: 4 days ago
I was going to do a day sail on her in Weymouth Bay but came down with a bug before I could. Quite reasonable terms too. Crew were very friendly. Not sure if they were in Weymouth for part of the Dunkirk film filmed in Weymouth Harbour, we had three such old trawlers and drifters anchored in the centre of the harbour. Great sight.

First real sea trial by SelwynWilliams Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
I know a skipper of a full size trawler in Weymouth of very similar lines and paintwork who would love that.

Looks brilliant love the figures.

HMS Triumph by SelwynWilliams Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
Brilliant could use it to search for wrecks :)

3d printing by SelwynWilliams Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
Local University runs 3D Studio Max course so not sure if that is what is required but thanks for the suggestion.

A SAD DISCOVERY by SelwynWilliams Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
A very interesting discovery either way but he is right we know more about the Moon than under the sea.

3d printing by SelwynWilliams Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
Thanks for that Dave the model of HMS Pickle looks superb and is the sort of thing we are looking to get. I will check out the poster software.

Seen in Portsmouth Naval Dockyard by SelwynWilliams Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
Medusa was in Portland Harbour for many years and was run by Mike Boyce and another from Ferrybridge Marine before they took it to Portsmouth

Unbekannte Flitze. A very flighty girl by SelwynWilliams Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
They are bronze and we first thought they were trunnions for a bronze cannon but I've been told by a cannon expert they are nothing to do with cannons but I think they may well be axle bearings possibly for a forge cart that would be part of a troop of cavalry that were on board with their horses in the 1795 transport.

3d printing by SelwynWilliams Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
These are the ship's plans I have and would want to have put into CAD and then output to a 3D printer is it feasible?

Unbekannte Flitze. A very flighty girl by SelwynWilliams Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
My ships haven't come in as they sank off Chesil Beach. I bought the rights to five 1795 shipwrecks and one 1888 shipwreck and used scuba gear to find artefacts from those wrecks. The attached photos are of two different size unidentified objects from a 1795 wreck that had cavalry on board so they might be something to do with a blacksmiths wagon. They are about 4 or 5 inches across the mouth. Suggestions welcome.

WOW ! by SelwynWilliams Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
Yes a lot of emails but easy to go through plus I love the foghorn each time

Chickerell Steam & Vintage Show by SelwynWilliams Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
Yes they do, please contact them.

Chickerell Steam & Vintage Show by SelwynWilliams Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
I know the people who run it and the farmer whose fields they use. I am in a sea shanty group and we sang there last year. If you have any trouble getting through on the website I can forward questions to them.

3d printing by SelwynWilliams Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi Wayne, the guy made models for films but thanks for the advice. I will chat to my mates about the lines to go onto CAD.

3d printing by SelwynWilliams Commander   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi Midlife (Wayne?) I know a CAD expert so I will ask how long that might take. I was looking for the easiest option. We were quoted £7k by a professional builder. The plans we have relate to Bristol ship lost off Chesil Beach.
