It is easy to see that you have fun when you build Alan. It can be seen on the quality.

Well Phil, it is 1/24th ish Very Happy the two figures early on in this thread are from Turner models and are already painted, the fellow helping me with the planking is from BP mouldings and needs painting.

BP Mouldings have no web site, they have quite a range of figures of good quality, also a lot of deck clutter.
One of the chaps that runs it is in our club so I just go round to his workshop to get what I want, only trouble with that is he wont let you out until you have no money left. (but I do get a discount Very Happy )

BP Mouldings (Micasa on Mayhem) go to most of the shows in the north and midlands, but I got this off a thread on Mayhem. BP mouldings and can be contacted on 01229 472556/834102 might be worth giving them a ring.
Not sure who this tel number will get, one chap is called Brian and the other Peter.


Hope this is of some help, it's raining very hard here so I guess Ill have to spend the rest of the day in the workshop cheers

The beadings for the windows are now done, they are made out of 1mm x 1mm Lime and mitred into the corners.
The first few I stuck to my fingers with the super glue,affraid then I used a pair of tweezers and a tooth pick to apply the glue, much better, no more stuck fingers. Very Happy
The whole lot was sanded and a couple of coats of sealer

Here is some of the bits I have made for the wheel house, they are all made out of bits of plasticard glued together, shaped and painted, apart from the clock that is the first thing I have made on my new toy, the knobs are brass dress making pins, couldnt manage them on the lathe
There is also a pic of the door made for the wheel house, just needs handles making now.

The inside of the wheelhouse is now finished (I think) the inside is made out of plasticard with the gloss side on the inside of the wheelhouse, to save painting it, the rest is made of Teak. The windows are glued in place with canopy glue applied with a tooth pick. The floor is planked and varnished.



Now this is about as far as I have got, so postings of my progress will not be as quick now. I seem to be spending quite a bet of time pondering over the working winch as Phil is expecting great things me thinks

Amazing Alan. You make me happy when I look at the details you have created.
The channel that come up in the back of the wheelhouse.
Is it meant for the cables?
I will soon start on the interior of the fishing boat.
So this is very inspiring.

Good guess Ole, I can see you are on the ball Very Happy , it is what I would call trunking and will take all the cables down into the hull.

A very nice way to hide cables Alan. Will use the idea. Assuming that you must be able to lift the wheel house to get to the deck below. Will you then have a form of quick release of the cables to the wheelhouse? Or just a little long cables?
I must be able to lift the wheel house to get to the engine.
I have therefore studied how I should do with the cables.
Is not good on electric.
regards Ole

Hi Ole, I fit small plugs to the ends of the cables and sockets inside the hull just below the wheel house, leaving enough slack on the cables so that the wheel house can be lifted up and the plugs pulled out, if that makes sense to you.

Thank you Alan.
It gives me a lot of sense.
Just a small question Alan in this regard. Is there more cables together in a single plug.

I try to keep each circuit on it's own plug, such as, stern light, mast head light, port/stbd lights, wheelhouse lights on one plug. red/green mast lights on another plug. working lights on one plug. search light on one plug, these are all switched from a 4 way latching switcher (P62) from Action electronics (Dave) http://www.action-electronics.co.uk/switches.php



The single plugs could be substituted for a multi plug and socket if you can find a suitable one


Hope this is the information you are after Ole.



Going to have a few beers with eldest son now, so don't expect any more sense out of me tonight.affraid

Thank you Alan. Understand that it is not worth taking any shortcuts.
Easier to find fault I guess, if there are any.
Sounds nice to have a beer and good company too, I understand.
Have a nice evening.

Radar and searchlight fitted to the wheelhouse. The radar is made from bits of plasti card and fitted with one of FLJ's motors. The searchlight is made of brass and is my first project on the lathe (second attempt) fitted with a 12v grain of rice lamp. Will have to do something about the cables coming out of the searchlight.

Looking great mate.
Alan putting the wires in some heat shrink tube it comes in asst'd colours, in this case I think white will look best.
If you keep the wires bent to correct shape while heating there will be no wrinkles on the inside of the bend.

Hows this look Damien, very fine brass wire wraped round cables to look like flexible conduit.

The brass wire was off a wine bottle, drank the wine, recycled the bottle, hows that for being green.

Decorating finished cheers



Weeds have stopped growing at the allotments cheers



Time to get back to building the shrimper cheers



So here is pics of the fish hold that I have made for here, I have made the hold out of plasticard shiny side in, to save painting, the surround out of Teak and the covers out of Oak, all the wood has been sanded and treated with Teak oil. The handles are out of aluminum welding rod

Well after putting it off for a while I have eventually got round to making a start on the working winch.



I have cupboard that is full of old printers/scanners,cassete players and such, from these I found a small motor that would run on 12v with plenty of torque, a worm type cog that would fit on the shaft, a double cog that would take the drive from the worm to a large cog that was drilled out to fit on the main drum,

A base of Aluminium was made to mount it all on, with the motor underneath.

The main piece is plumbers pipe and all the discs are cut out of plasticard. A brass tube runs right through the plumbers pipe, brass tube was used to make two small bushes that are fitted in the end supports.

One of the photo's shows it put together without been glued to see how it looked, there are still some bits to make for it but the main part seems to be OK.

The winch will work with one channel through an ESC

Here are pics of the winch, glued together, painted and sat in position on the deck. There is backing wire on the drums, the trawl net wires will go on top of this. It was quite traumatic drilling the 25mm hole in the deck to take the motor. There is a frame work to go round the winch with pulleys and rollers to guide the wires which I am working on at the moment.

This is as far as I have got with the frame that holds the pulleys and rollers for the winch.

There is still a bit to do on it including making two pulleys that will swivel, will have to think about that later on tonight with a Whisky. Laughing
