Hi Guys,

Navigation lights.

Next to get a coat of looking at was the Navigation lights.
The tops of the LED’s were filed down and a small piece of plastic glued to the top same as the mast light.
Plastic shields were made for them. (there is probably a proper name for them but i cannot think of it at the moment. )

The insides were painted with Humbrol matt black (No 33)
The outsiders again with Humbrol white gloss (No 22)

The plastic is slowly creeping in LOL!!

Life Ring’s

Made from layer’s of Plastic cut to approx 37mm X 22mm the hole was cut out and hand sanded then the outside was cut and also sanded by hand.

Painted with Humbrol (No 22 white gloss and No19 Red gloss)

Ropes added.

Due to health problems there has been a slight gap in-between updates.

So here is a little update.

This radar was made by using layers of plastic to get the correct thicknesses.
I made a paper template just to get a rough idea as to the size it would need to be.

I drilled a small hole in the centre of each section and passed a wire through, this was used to align it all as it was glued together.
I will drill the hole larger when i modify a small serve to rotate 360 and fit it all to the boat.
This log is now up to date and as soon as i can i will get out in my little workshop and see if i can do a little more to ‘MOJO’

Hi Guys,

Due to a few personal problems i have not been able to do much but here is a little update.

I knocked up a Samson post and a few deck cleats.
The Deck cleats were made the same way as the cabin top hand rails.
