I'm really surprised that the 1:60 is hard to obtain now. More recently the 1:30 was hard to find but now abundant.
I bought an old Nordkap on eBay that turned out to be a bag of crap but eBay refunded me and I kept all the wood for stock. It wasn't buildable but was recyclable Smile

No idea if this will be up to the job but a 50mm speaker arrived today from RS just over £4 delivered.

It will fit in the wheelhouse firing down into the hull but all subject to variation.

Made a start today after two paint deliveries.
It's only when primed that any flaws show up but its not bad. I will fettle it before a final coat.
Then I will mask off the red and prime the rest in white. Then mask off the waterline to paint the upper hull racing green.
The whole hull will then be overcoated in satin lacquer.

A massive drop in temperate since Tuesday put a kibosh on painting but then....


I got a break, the sky cleared and it warmed up a little enough to get some coats done.
In a change of plan I feathered the edge of the anti fouling coat and got it twice lacquered. When hardened this will be masked off to do the white above etc.

I've covered the boat testing tub so I can paint under cover Billings Boulogne Etaples BB534 - Page 2 Grin 
Billings Boulogne Etaples BB534 - Page 2 3E598ADE-DB84-4EC9-A56C-881C063B7EE3-XL


I've been having a bit of trouble with white but today I discovered that Tamiya TS-101 base white has a significantly better covering power. it is designed for applying over dark colours.
Here the wheelhouse is now ready for the lower half finishing in racing green. The separate interference fit glazing frames will be dark grey.

I will leave these screws loose for a few days as from experience the pressure would cause a bond between the lacquered parts.

A much better day than envisaged so progress was made. Some green tomorrow I hope. I've no idea what to do with the net to finish that off?

I spent all morning filling and sanding all the nooks and crannies until I'm satisfied she's ready for a final prime of white.
The bulwarks will remain white with a small margin "John Boyd" style and the deck will be the lighter grey as per the removable deck section.
Not sure what colour for the gunwale yet.

PostSubject: Paint envy!    Billings Boulogne Etaples BB534 - Page 2 EmptySat Jun 06, 2020 9:15 pm

Hi Andy, 
I've been following your build and I have developed a bad case of pigment envy!  Some of your finishes look mirror-like... most impressive.  What is your process?  You mentioned you are using filler?  What kind of filler?  I'm assuming its not just standard "plastic wood" as its called here in the US.  I understand you are using Tamiya paints ... in rattle cans (from the shot over your hot tub).  The wheelhouse green is gorgeous... do you paint green and then cover with layers of lacquer? I've tried sanding between coats (320 grit maybe) and then buffing with steel wool .. but I can still the wood grain come through and it certainly isn't as perfect as your results. 

Appreciate your insight!

Hi Nat. Thank you and I'm glad you like the build.
The Tamiya racing green is straight out of the can, nothing added afterwards. Many Tamiya colours are for aircraft and military related so are mostly matt to satin so you have to discover what is what.
For filling I used to exclusively use Squadron but they have changed the formula and it is now CRAP. The original if you can find it has a flat black cap as in my picture.
Since the discovery of the new squadron I and others have had to find alternatives and for flat areas I use Mr Hobby, for corners cracks and seams I use Vallejo plastic acrylic putty with the handy nozzle.

For grain filling bare wood I tend to use coats of acrylic automotive lacquer sanding between each.
 
The anti fouling coat is red automotive primer covered with satin lacquer.

I don't normally like gloss but in this instance the green may survive not getting overcoated.

This is Tamiya too and a friend Joked it's like Wedgwood pottery Laughing but the finish is terrific if you don't want gloss. This range of non gloss sprays great but it touches up with brush like you would not know.
Racing green on the Lobster pot buoy here too

Yesterday I finished filling sanding and final priming.
I need a warm day now for Halfords satin lacquer overcoat. The white Tamiya primer will serve as finish colour when lacquered.
The sweeping curvaceous white line will be masked along its top edge to spray the green finish.

While awaiting a warm enough day for lacquering. I thought I'd fit the basic running package.

I managed to get some lacquer on after all today. First I took the edge off the white with 1500 grit.
Tomorrow I will mask off the fancy waterline to apply the green.

Masking for the green. First the upper edge of the white curve is created by eye and judgement.

Weather is total pants so its either rain or no paint holding me up.


Finished the green, a little bleed onto the white in places but easy to sand off before total lacquering.
Just have the deck to mask up now.

So now after a very long delay Hermes "not their fault" some paint arrived so I could finish the deck.
I masked it up John Boyd style to save masking around every rib Billings Boulogne Etaples BB534 - Page 2 Smiley

Now the ensemble for effect. Still a way to go but nice to have a play.

Managed to get the satin lacquer on.

Which enabled assembly to a large extent ready for ballasting. It seems I need something over 600grams in addition to the batteries.

Very smart Andy. Do you have a lake open where you can sail?

Thank you Barrie
Kirklees is still closed but Balne Moor is private and open to members
I’m taking her to Wilsthorpe near Bridlington next month
She’ll have her maiden in the sea

This is how it works with ropes in place for changing batteries. This would only be for charging as the two batteries should provide way way over an hour running.
To switch the esc on would not require the cabin to be removed, just lift the hatch slightly at the from edge.

Another detail out of the way. Fixing points for the forward tyre fenders. I've used 1mm stainless rod.
It is looking like our motorhome meet near Brid is not going to be cancelled so she's ready for the sea.

Simple idea gleaned from Facebook. Many people apparently use cardboard boxes to store and transport their smaller models.
