As promised this thread is about the refit/rebuild of a 44ft Waveney class lifeboat for a client in Torquay.

Boat as delivered to me.Cofigured like a US Coastguard boat but in RNLI colours.

44ft Waveney rebuild Waveney-001_zpsfkbjiqqy

Motor compartment full of horrible foam around the shafts.

44ft Waveney rebuild Waveney-002_zpswjp8s9dl

The 'vintage' mechanical speed contollers in the rear compartment.

44ft Waveney rebuild Waveney-003_zpsd6trt7dh

Solid timber fenders instead of rubber.

44ft Waveney rebuild Waveney-004_zpsrfjcxpem

Stabilizing fins at the stern are oversize and the rudders are not the correct shape.

44ft Waveney rebuild Waveney-005_zpsug9l9ns6

Good luck, that's far more work then i'ld ever take on for a restoration.

Are those ''Bobs boards'' there or some cheap and nasty tamiya style mechanical's?

If there bobs save em, collectors love them for sympathetic restorations.

They are not Bob's Boards ( I have about four of those for my small lifeboats), no idea what they are and don't care, they are being replaced with modern esc's. I don't get too sentimental when refitting a boat I just use what is needed.

Loving the apprentice, i keep trying to get my 7 year old son into boats, but hes got my feelings for racing RC cars ( funny thing is he drives em better then i used !)
guess i'll have to get one of my 3 daughters into boats instead, my 16 month little nipper loves my row boat think I've got her hooked!

Great to see sons take over from fathers.  Thumbup

The outside of the hull has been given a general sand down followed by two coats of epoxy resin to seal all the small gaps and fix the planks to each other.

44ft Waveney rebuild Waveney-011_zpscrzbdsoo

After sanding again the hull has been given a coat of matt black.

44ft Waveney rebuild Waveney-012_zpswg7ahcmw

The matt black has been sanded back to leave it in the low spots on the hull.

44ft Waveney rebuild Waveney-013_zpsyqukkpni

All the low spots now filled ready for sanding back again.

44ft Waveney rebuild Waveney-014_zpsola6x3ce

After more sanding and priming the hull is now ready to rebuild.

The new well deck has been constructed and the inspection hatches added. The curved bits of wood are to hold the walls in place whilst the glue dries.

The new coamings have been fitted for the rear cabin. This needs to be kept as dry as possible as all the r/c gear will be housed there.

The rear cabin is constructed around the coamings to ensure a good fit.

Break from boat building with the sorting out of the helmsman.

One of the Adrians Marine Figures range of RNLI crew in the siting position was bought to drive the boat.

44ft Waveney rebuild Waveney-037_zpsc0koccf4

I had also ordered from Adrian a couple of spare heads so it was off with the original and the new head grafted in place. The lifejacket was also altered to the appropriate type. The legs and arms were also cut and repositioned to suit the steering position.

44ft Waveney rebuild Waveney-038_zpsyl0dpidl

A coat of primer makes the whole thing look a lot better.

44ft Waveney rebuild Waveney-039_zps2cxmos5v

Finally he was given a repaint and is now ready to fit later.

The client has has named him  'Albert' !!  When I asked why he said 'because he looks like an Albert!'

Something I have been wondering for a while is, what you use for the rivets and bolts to such good effect? I thought a of using pin heads but that would only work for one or two particular scale sizing's.

As I mentioned in one of my other builds I use small diamante crystals of the type that ladies use on their nails, they come in packs of 1000 and in many sizes. I buy 2-3mm diameter on ebay in batches of 3-4000 for about £1 per 1000.I also have some 4mm for the larger sise bolt/rivet. Place spots of superglue in the place you want the rivet using a pin or cocktail stick and place the rivets on top, job done.
