Finished the narrower doors this morning and applied a coat of dope to seal the grain left it several hours and applied a coat of satin clear this is the result.



Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed  The clear didn't like the dope obviously by the cloudiness.

Another lesson learned as air in shed turned rainbow colours into the bin they went.

Start again tomorrow using 5mm x 3mm planks used on bow & stern decks.

The timber is actually 4.1mm x 2.2mm brown and white 5.26mm x 2.2mm



For the narrower door the white rails are edge on leaving considerable sanding to do.

Trimmed and sanded smooth not an easy task pushing 2mm wood back & forth on 280 grit sand paper nails on 3 fingers are rather strangely manicured lol, rails for sliding cargo doors fitted not final sanded yet.

The sliding doors morphed into hinged doors as they were to high. opp's 
The cut and polish sort of worked it can stay as it is now.

I've hidden the worst of the primer bleed through with some woven 3mm dia cord liberally coated with dope and hung to dry with a weight on the end and left overnight to dry.
Next day a bead of balsa glue put around lower deck-cabin join.





Started on windows for the want of correct word the top the rear of the upper deck roof using 2 7mm strip of mirror tile and 3mm brown pinstripe tape, the lined strip of paper at the top of the pic had the correct spacing for the frame uprights i used it to mark the spacing on the wood for the position of the frame uprights.





Had to call it quits too dangerous to work with double vision it comes And goes a side effect of radiation treatment to the head.

Trimmed and pleased it fitted perfectly.



Started fitting the pre-made windows.






The six doors with mirror tile windows and door handles cut from 50mm pins with double sided tape fitted to back.



The larger Cargo and passenger doors fitted to forward wall.

Thanks David, no the weed islands in the middle of the lake have grown by several acres at a guess and around 2.5 to 3 ft of weed on the downwind side they've been regularly mowing the rowing course obviously missing lots of weed in the catcher.
With such a large lake I've no option but the down wind side if anything untoward happens to a model.

Mid deck forward windows fitted. (note to self do all these fiddly bits before fitting the railings)  



Got 3/4 of the mid deck rear done and what I thought was aligned well wasn't by a long shot more fun (not) removing the duds held not only with double sided tape but also super glue where they were on curves the mirror tile plastic was less inclined to bend and overcame the sticky backing. Equally hard to get things aligned well with double vision & with one eye shut. Gave up for the day.

All windows fitted some slightly crooked but the best my eyes and shaky hand can do.





Interesting tricks of light that makes Ivory yellow look pink.

Found I was still 2 doors short they're ready to install thursday as tomorrow we're off to the big smoke for 3 specialist appt's that'll take most of the day

First time in 24yrs they're all on same day.

Fitted the stanchions for the lower deck railings .9mm holes, .9mm brass rod and super glue also fitted final two doors yesterday.





also  prepared the railings using some low voltage cable approx 600mm long, I stripped off the outer coating formed a loop at one end, bent a hook on a piece of bike spoke and fitted it to drill which Jo operated at slowest speed whilst I applied finger pressure as it turned to produce a quality cable in next pic.



Todays effort trim stanchions and start soldering the railings.

Masking needed prior to painting stanchions and rails thought of masking with a hole to fit around the stanchion diameter then slit so it'd slide in place paper tape was too flimsy so i retrieved the blue plastic tape from bin.



The blue in place over the stanchion bases bready for the paper mask tape to fill the gaps & cover the deck.



Gaps filled.

 



The brushable yellow proved to be too yellow after a few days drying I'll use some white spray enamel to lighten it.



Meanwhile I'll do some more on the upper superstructure.

Yesterday, It turned out I had some of the ivory yellow left so sprayed some into a small can and waited half an hour for some thinners to evaporate and brushed it over the darker yellow left it an hour and brushed a second coat looks good left it another hour and removed the masking bent the rails a bit removing the tape with tweezers they'll straighten up OK though.





Today, I drew up some forward deck gates as pic shows only got half of one gate internals cut when double vision put paid to safe shed time for today.
Looking good so far.

Got some more done on the paddle boxes from 5mm balsa cut 4 half circles for inside the box walls they'll give extra glue surface to glue the top to out side was easy after rough cutting I used the disc sander on the outer edge scratched my head on best way to do the inside then remembered the Dremel & router bits Damien Jr had given me which I'd previously made a mounting fixture that's held in a workmate foldable bench/vice.
I fitted a 10mm / 3/8th sanding drum which made short work of the inner curve.


Once glue is dry I'll carve/sand the inside edge to 45deg.

I started to mount the front & rear walls then it hit me I hadn't yet finished the fronts so mounted a 3mm router bit in the dremel.

 

and easily routed to the lines.

The gates have their last coat of paint, 



Balsa 1/2 circles sanded to 45deg after glue dried.







you just have to laugh at yourself sometimes while putting fittings together to finish the upper superstructure spent 90 mins searching for A funnel fitting 20mm x 20mm x 3mm 90 deg bend eventually found it already attached to the funnel.

I'll glue the backs on monday too hot since 1-30 pm today and guests for lunch tomorrow.

Got the backs on after dinner last night and the curved outer curved skins on this morning after everything was set up for the guests.
Tried to pin them in place without success so went with rubber bands never ending supply from postal deliveries.





One pair of gates in place ready for a slight lift once epoxy is applied.

Guests a nephew & his new bride arrived at 3-30pm for lunch and left around 5-30, I skipped the evening meal, helped Jo clean up the dishes and escaped to the shed to trim the wheel boxes only to discover super glue doesn't bond balsa to marine ply very well after scraping it off I reglued it with 5 min epoxy.







Some filler in the pinholes tomorrow then a coat of polyester resin to the insides of the boxes.

Paddle boxes look great sitting in place on superstructure, although not quite in their correct positions.





The polyester resin applied to the insides cured and a coat of dope was applied to the outsides had dinner and went out and sanded it ready for primer tomorrow with a top of 20c or 68f it'll be ideal.

All was going well until I sprayed the olive enamel over the grey primer filler on the paddle boxes it obviously reacts with enamel but is OK with acrylic paint I left them to dry and installed the rigging lines on the mast on top of the aft top deck fitting.

 

Then installed the Funnel.

Wrong again the corners of the curves still showed grey primer after 2 coats hopefully the third will cover it.

That's it for spray cans back to Airbrush where you control the paint to thinner consistency and the pressure of the airbrush.

 

The Funnel stays anchored.



Bow mast and Anchor davit?



Interesting omission on this plan/model although there's stairs and door into the wheel house there's no stairs or ladders to get up there.

In the past I've always used automotive acrylic paint with great success and had it on hand from Hillclimb car days, trying to save paying taxi fares to buy good paint ride my scooter to Supercheap auto store and bought budget brand spray cans normally $5 a can on special sometimes   $3-50 on special. They also have acrylic spray cans at $16 to $20 a can depending on colour.

The closest Hardware or specialist paint store is a $20 round trip taxi fare making paint expensive. 
The only acrylic I still have is metallic red and green left over from the Renault hillclimb car build how do you think they'll go on HMS Volcano ???????  lol! lol!

Not a lot I can do on the superstructure until the paint hardens on the wheel boxes.
Back to the engine with the 1.6mm pin for the piston to rocker arm loose in the slides there was a tendency to bind so instead of the 4mm square brass tube I'd originally prepared some time ago, and lack of 4mm square solid brass I cut a strip from some 2mm x 90mm Sq plate 4.15mm wide cut to 20mm lengths tinned with solder then joined joined to 2- 4mm x 4mm x 20mm pieces drilled 1.6mm hole counter sunk on back of one and soldered the pin to it then filed them to fit the channel.



A plastic washer to each side will stop the drift on right hand side.

Paddle boxes epoxied in  in place.





A little bit of filler where they connect to the deck I'll spray some ivory paint into a small plastic tub and add some plaster as the filler hopefully after sanding it'll only need one coat to finish them off. 

Did some more on the piston slides 5 x 2mm washers hold it nicely and without oil it travels up and down very smoothly the pivot joints held with 2mm threaded rod with a nyloc nut on each end.

I had made locking discs for the wheel drive to output shafts but after searching for an hour so I butchered another motor to shaft coupler to make another pair of lock rings as shown in the pic.



Both wheel box to deck joint gaps filler with Pollyfiller powder mixed in ivory paint, tomorrow I'll decant some more of the Ivory spray paint to an airbrush bottle and touch up the sanding marks and the few bits of paint removed when I took the small piece of trim tape off each side prior to installing the boxes.





Something else that's gone missing are the 2 drive axles as I was ready for this next pic.



Any ideas on what colour the wheel should be please?

an amazing build Damien..................I'm just waiting to see this beam working on the model as she sails.

in my junior school days we were each given a project essay to do over the Christmas holidays...........I was 10 yr old, and my topic was James Watt and his famous invention...........WTF was james watt...........and what did he invent.........hated libraries as they were too stuffy and quiet..........but that is where I learned about his beam engine and pumping system for mines................never forgot it, and earned myself a gold star for my project..............so I am totally inspired by your beautiful model..........and can't wait to see it in action.

neil.

I suspect the closest to water she'll ever see is the test tank apart from the week covered lake I can no longer bend over without holding on to something I can use to push myself upright again, I'm thinking a golf bag 2 wheeled thingy cart might be an idea.

the golf trolley sounds good to me,  I was thinking of the same thing for my boats as I am getting that way, I cant get up affraid . it  will roll down the edge of our lake and launch then the same retrieving it. we have had some launch made at the club but it looks to much trouble getting it out to me.
the beam looks great, hope you can find away of putting it on the lake you deserve to after all that work. is your other half queen  able to help you 2thumbsup 2thumbsup 2thumbsup .

The motor pulley needs a large size increase I hooked it up to 7.2v nicad pack and count the paddles as they passed a market point I imagine it would slow further if it was in water.
It's a 12v 2000 rpm geared motor I'll play with sizes until it's right.

Something I learned though is the weight of the motor is not enough to maintain good belt to pulley tension a light hand contact on the wheel caused the motor pulley to climb the belt  I'll have to add a spring either tension or compression which ever is easiest to fit unseen.
