A bit more filler was needed had dinner and went back out did the final sanding followed by more primer and tomorrow I'll make a means of marking the water line when done I'll sand with with 600grit paper followed by a tack rag, and she'll be ready for paint.

Pic's of today's efforts.

Got the bottom masked off ready for paint unfortunately rain is forecast for the next week with temp's in the mid 20's C and humidity 70% to 90% I won't risk paint bloom.

 



Mixed the red/dark brown enamel for the bottom and when cleaning up discovered I'd thinned it with acetone not general purpose thinners  Embarassed Mad scratch Crying or Very sad   and had to throw away 2 airbrush bottles full 1/2hour wasted.

Darn bother drat it's annoying the faults that show up whilst dry rubbing with 600 wet & dry paper lots more filling  needed talc added to grey primer will alleviate spraying primer again.

No pic's when i took pic's they showed more faults than I'd noticed.

Gave up for today feeling off my other half is just over a few off days looks like she passed it to me.

Massive thunder storm this morning lasted 40mins sun came out every thing was dry an hour later so I got stuck into the superstructure and hull bottom painting, darn even more filling needed, I'll mix the paint with talc for filler so I'll be able to sand it and spray the top coat without re-priming.

Grrrrrrrr 24 hours after airbrushing the superstructure is dry but the hull bottom is still really tacky, whilst spraying it it seemed a tad thick I assume it went on thicker than the ivory superstructure both colours were new tins of enamel.

48hrs and still as tacky as yesterday I removed all the masking, out with the thinners and rags and took it back to primer left it an hour and took to it with 400 W&D paper dry when done a tack rag removed the dust and re primed her.

32c tomorrow I'll mix another batch of paint a lot thinner this time and see what happens.

19hrs and the red is tacky and the brown is almost dry just slightly tacky you'd think 32c temp would help it dry.

Ooops found this crack where the upper cabin has separated from the deck this will be tricky getting filler into it I just knew they'd be needed when I bought the long cotton buds.

You're not having much luck with the paint Damien. With those temperatures you would expect it to dry on contact with the model! Here we are at last getting winter temperatures - although this corner of Eastern England fares better than other areas. No snow yet, and not too hard a frost. It has still kept me out of the workshop for a few days though as I don't seem to be able to shake off a cold and dripping noses aren't conducive to modelling. lol! lol! lol!

It seems not Barrie.

I did a test piece with the original mix of red-dark brown they were new tins bought for the job I also did one with 
A dark buckboard brown of a different brand if that dries quickly I'll just use it instead and throw away the dud tins.

Another day goes by the red/black test piece is still very tacky where as the brown is dry a trip to garbage land fill for the 2 dud tins.
Nothing else happening here 32c feels like 39c in the little tin shed back inside. Weather mob predicts a week of low 20c's with up to 300mm of rain will be stuck inside if we don't float away.

Most of the rain avoided us as did the heat just enough rain for high humidity, so set to work changing the shed around so I can fit Volcanos hull on the bench.

No pic's at pres it's a pig stye. 

The red/black paint mix is still tacky.

Sprayed the mission brown on hull bottom very warm day not long until sun reaches model head inside for dinner afterwards discover wind had sprung up and deposited rubbish from neighbours trees all over it Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr



Have sanded it with 1200 wet & dry and started masking it again.

The talc in the ivory paint worked well as a filler then found a problem reaching the filler to sand it smooth coffee stirrers some PVA glue and some 120 grit powder did the job.

Resanded the bottom with 2000 wet & dry wet resprayed when dry I'm happy with it now left it a few days and masked the bottom ready for above waterline paint.

The pop stick sanders were a flop wouldn't fit between the hand railings so shaved down some 1/4sq and put the grit on it next day it worked well. also fitted a dowel pin in the base of the funnel and marked and drilled it's position on the roof along with the other fittings shown on plan.

Today I started cutting out the wheel covers.



Also finished sanding the upper superstructure ready for paint tomorrow as it'll be a nice warm day.

The ivory paint went on ok until I was almost ready to turn her over to spray the lower deck cabin wall then CRAAAAACK and a piece of said wall fell on floor.

 
 
Really regretting using balsa for this and of course holding weight of hull in one hand at the stern Grrrrrr should have learned when it happened spraying the primer. 
Lovely frame of mind it's left me in for the festive season.

Bad lick Damien - this build seems to have attracted all the Gremlins out there. Shut it in the shed and forget it over the holiday.

Happy Christmas to you!

Well went out after dinner and patched her up.



Super glued the piece in place some filler tomorrow. The inside will get some polyester resin and some 25mm glass tape as a precaution against further oooop's



I rather like the ivory colour.

Polyfiller mixed with a little ivory paint (tried to buy more at local supercheap auto store as I only have 1 airbrush bottle full left, but they no longer sell the smaller tins and no way I'm buying any more of the bigger tins that don't dry)



1" or 25mm glass fibre tape laid inside with polyester resin.

Not a happy chappy Set Josie up ready for final olive spraying last time I filled the airbrush bottle I obviously hadn't put the lid on properly when I vigorously shook it to mix ready said lid flew off & my black T Shirt and shorts my arms , legs and chest through said T shirt & singlet.
T shirt, singlet and shorts went straight in the workshop rubbish bin.
Said bottle ended up upright unter bench with 5ml of paint left nowhere near enough to finish the job.

The clean up of me the bench and storage containers under the bench used 200Ml of thinners and a draw full of rags and lots of colourful language I'll just blame it on the HOT weather.

Perhaps you should just abandon this one - Its obviously jinxed lol! 
On the other hand you could shift some of your hot weather over here - we've got snow again Mad Mad Mad I don't think I'll be in the workshop today.

Bought 2 spray cans of ivory on ebay cheaper than a small tin plus taxi to hardware store coming from Sydney should have them monday or tuesday. depending on how close they are in colour to that already sprayed may have to respray all the ivory a few days will tell.

The base discs for the lower deck handrail stanchions will now be made on the lathe from 6mm/1/4" pre drilled 1mm then turned to 4mm dia then cut to 3mm thickness with a razor saw whilst still spinning leaving a little to be cut by hand so they don't disappear into the shavings dust.

Can't win finally received the ivory spray paint a test shows a darker yellow than the previous ivory I airbrushed so I'll have to spray it all again not today currently 29.6c with a 20km wind across where I usually spray.   



The 6mm dowel was put in chuck of lathe and using an extra long 1mm drill drilled the stanchion hole 50mm deep then turned it to 4 and a bit mm emery board took it to 4mm then moved it further out of the chuck to allow hand clearance from the chuck for the last bit, then with razor saw in right hand  and left hand steadying the dowell & ready to catch the parted itsy bitsy bit of dowell I proceeded to cut the 15 req'd.

Got the paint on yesterday the spray can Ivory is considerably more yellow than previous Ivory I airbrushed, checked on it today whilst surface dry it needs a few days to a week to harden.

On checking the rear deck level cabin walls I found some wrigley grey lines I've no idea why the grey primer rejects top coat paint in little lines.
Sprayed some ivory into a plastic cup and added talc to it and filled the imperfections.





I'm pleased with the upper decks paint.





as pic' shows I'm thinking on the wheel boxes build next.

Thanks Barrie,
The funnel and associated fittings are ready to install, the bow, stern mast ect, are done and treated with brass blackening and look good.

The windows all 50 of them are ready to install my wife gave me a craft punch 10mm sq I used to cut window panes from 150mm self adhesive mirror tiles, then cut them from black card and trimmed to the outer shape of the window frames pics tomorrow.

The bow & stern masts the curved one is close to bow mast no idea what it's for though.



The stanchion bases although using a 1mm centre drill as pic shows it still drifted off centre not doing more though.  



Still some cleaning up to do.

I also sanded and sprayed the stern cabin wall and the grey crack lines appeared again lost for a cause as they were't showing prior to spraying perhaps I'll put life buoys over them.

Yesterdays paint ran slightly on port side where I was over enthusiastic trying to cover the primer breakthrough.
yesterdays coat almost covered the grey breakthrough, so far todays seems to have covered it I hope so I'm already worried the upper decks won't fit.
