Back to the build.

The pulpit has been fixed onto the fore deck and the mooring bitt and capstan painted.


I also spent the last couple of days making the windows. These are blacked out as there is to be no interior details on this build.


The positions for the windows were plotted using strips to ensure that they are all at the correct height.


Side windows fitted.


Rest of the windows are now in position using the same spacing method.


At the rear the door made earlier, the final window and the air intake filters made earlier have also been fixed in place.




more soon. Thumbup

Spent a couple of days making, painting and bolting the starboard side stanchions onto the kick boards. The white wire is threaded through to check that the rail cables will run in a smoothish curve.


I have painted and fitted the fairleads. The bolts will be trimmed soon.


The mooring bollards have also been painted and fitted.


Now just have to make the corresponding set for the port side!!

The other side stanchions are now bolted in place and all the bolts trimmed down.The stern rails made earlier are also now bolted to the kick boards.


Today as the weather was superfine and sunny the boatyard was moved outside. The far Severn is my son David's build of Humber lifeboat and hiding behind that is his Shannon.



View of the two differing wheelhouses, rail launch Y boat system for The Will on the right and Hiab launch system for Humber on the left.


Today's major challenge was to fit the control system, keeping it from looking like a rats nest of wires!!

Spent the weekend making and fitting the stanchions on the upper deck and access steps.


I have also made the MOB cranes for the sides of the superstructure.


Fitted onto the sides in the stowed position.


lowered into the lifting position.


Need to add the rigging next.

After a very very hot weekend spent at a rally,in a model marquee,
how refreshing it is to come home and see even more progress on this beautiful build.
I have a lump in my throat every time I look at it.
Thanks,over and over Mike.

The box sections for the front lockers have been made and fitted. These will hold the switches and battery packs for all the electrics in the superstructure making it a self contained unit, no long leads to juggle and plug into the hull interior!!


The centre locker holds the lighting and radar switches and the outer pair hold the battery packs.


The side deck lights have been fitted into the hull section, lit by leds.


These side deck lights and the stern navigation light have their own switches inside the forward escape hatch and their battery supply will be in the hull.
