Back to the build.

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

Falmouth Severn Class - Page 3 Falmou10

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.

Falmouth Severn Class - Page 3 Falmou11

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

Falmouth Severn Class - Page 3 Falmou12

Side windows fitted.

Falmouth Severn Class - Page 3 Falmou13

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

Falmouth Severn Class - Page 3 Falmou14

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

Falmouth Severn Class - Page 3 Falmou15

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.

Falmouth Severn Class - Page 3 Falmou17

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

Falmouth Severn Class - Page 3 Falmou18

The mooring bollards have also been painted and fitted.

Falmouth Severn Class - Page 3 Falmou19

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.

Falmouth Severn Class - Page 3 Falmou20

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.

Falmouth Severn Class - Page 3 P1020410

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.

Falmouth Severn Class - Page 3 P1020411

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

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!!

Falmouth Severn Class - Page 3 Falmou26

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

Falmouth Severn Class - Page 3 Falmou27

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

Falmouth Severn Class - Page 3 Falmou29

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.

Just thin strips of painted cheap and very sticky masking tape mate. Stick it on to a sheet of glass, paint with matt red acrylic paint then cut with a scalpel to width needed.

You could even use red insulating tape but I like the slight texture of the masking tape

I've used insulating tape before, and it looks very effective 
Never thought of using painted masking tape before, though, brilliant idea. And once masking tame gets wet, as we know it's an utter pig to get off, so will certainly stick much better than insulation tape in the long term
Thanks Mike, another tip noted!

O.M.G.
Isnt she just beautiful! What a superb model she is and how proud of her I am going to be.
Suddenly by just seeing these latest photos,my pain has subdued.
Mike,David,how glad I am that I asked you to rescue this out of my attic,to assemble it for me.I know you have made a lot of the fittings yourself from scratch,as she is a pretty unique boat,which makes her even more special
Once again,thank you so much,for all you have done for me.
