Very surprised to get a couple of days at home so time for a bit more work.







I have found doing the clump blocks very difficult because of the size and because they sit so close to the side, i am tempted not to fit them in yet untill the riging starts as im not sure if i will be able to get the thread through them if they are glued in place.

As Karl has allready done this i would like his input on this.

Happy building folks.

regards

Well first of all i hope every one on this forum has had a great Christmas. I did and managed to get some work done also.

Started on the cabins.



I also took Karls advice and made the chains longer so that the clump blocks went into the deck instead of the side of the ship.



And managed to get the cabins finished but i have not glued them in place just yet.







Time for more work now. Have started on the bilge pump but am havings problems trying to sort out which parts i need for the handles. But im sure something will show up.

regards

Thanks for the kind comments lads. Today i managed to get the brigedeck wardroom done. Once again as there are other parts to do on the side of the ship i have not glued them in place yet. But ill let you see what you think.





Well thats it for now.

However. I have a question for Karl as he has done this build. The brackets for the life boats. Did you find them to short to fit across the width of the build, if so how did you over come this as either mine are to short or i have built the hull to wide?

Any help would be greatfull.

And if i do not post again this year i wish everyone on here a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Regards

Now time for some advice if you would not mind.

Its time to do the life boats and launch.



You have to cover them in wood, my question is, as they are cast, which would be the best glue to use to attach the wood to the metal.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Guys. Well have a little more done. I have completed the life boats and the launches and i must say that i am not overley impressed with the way they turned out as it was adding wood to cast metal. But here are the pics for your comments.





As the life boats are quite close to the sides of the hull i may take them off untill some of the rigging is in place as its a very tight space to work.

I also started on the fore mast. Nothing glued yet but i found a problem with the size dowel they say to use and the size of the holes in the other peices they go in to, they are much smaller and the dowel needed a lot of sanding down.

I might order some smaller doamiter dowel, not sure yet.



Well thats it for now. Happy building folks.

regards

Foz

coming on a treat foz,sorry I missed the question 'bout the life boat supports,mine were ok,but like you I thought they were too short,but they fitted ok in the end,a little tip here if you don't mind me saying so,the brass wire for the hand rails,it comes on a roll,to straighten it you need to stretch it with two pair of nose pliers,and for smaller lengths you can roll it on a flat surface with a small file,the grooves in the file grips the wire,so as you roll it it straightens up.
