Gosh, she looks fast and sleek. Turning into quite something impressive there.

Well done. I know it's not easy for you with only an old ironing table. lol!

Cheers

Very impressive indeed. Very Happy

Er indoors won't let me bring my efforts into the house. so they are a wee bit dustier than yours.

A smashing display that I'd love to see in the flesh. Looks like a busy day in the harbour lol!

All the best

This weekend I have made more fittings including the vent for the emergency generators and the bits for the anchor including the winch and the anchor itself.

When this was done the boat was given another coat of paint.

Thanks chaps.

This afternoon and yesterday afternoon has been spent making the davits for the rhibs. Yet another job full of awkward angles.

I made the davits using Plastruc plastic sections.

Now all I have to do is convince Steve in Oz that the world will be a much nicer place if he could make the rhibs for me.

My radar domes are still winging their way here from down under.

This week I received my resin castings from Steve in Oz and they are some of the cheapest and the best that I have had the good luck to purchase.





I have now fitted the radar domes and painted them and the deck surfaces.

I have assembled the gun and platform and fixed and part painted them.

I have assembled the liferaft containers and their davits and their handrails ready for painting and fixing.

Just a few more fittings and the two rhibs to go now, once Steve has turned out the rhibs.









Thanks to Glen in Oz for giving me a prompt answer with photos to one of my queries about the positioning of some of the fittings.

What's happening with the windows? I was watching 'Sea Patrol' earlier, and they seem to be just tinted dark (black from a distance) but I was wondering if your chosen prototype is different?

Hi Matty

The windows are tinted dark brown in real life, mine are tinted darker as at the scale I have done this model is so small the bridge detail was not possible because of weight saving and I could not see the point in looking in at a hole in the floor of the bridge.

Had a fairly good weekend and have more or less finished the Armidale.

Now all I have to do is hope that Steve doesnt change his mind and is still going to do my RHIBS for me.

I shall now put it on ice until I get the RHIBS and then I will finish it completely.

Up till then I will get on with my USS Arizona.

Thanks to Steve and Brian in Oz I have been able to get on with the RHIBs.
These are very fiddly at this scale and what you see in the photos is just over a days F ing and B ing.
Still they arent turning out too bad really.
Watch this space.

I have now finished the RHIBs and davits.

Have just received the new battery from The Component Shop, so I can try out the new motors I have put in her.

One word "WOW!" Shocked. Correct me if I'm wrong Dicky isn't that one of the fast patrol crafts that patrol the waters off Australia looking for Drug smugglers, and illegal fishing boats?. scratch
