After painting/staining the rails and letting them dry overnight I removed the deck screws to sand the primer I found the lower part with the rails was too brittle to be handled off the deck and broke off one paddle box so after repairs I reassembled the unit & I primed the whole thing.

It will make masking a task & a half and will need some careful airbrushing.

Thinking on what David said about the name I only had 5mm to play with on the outer face of the paddle boxes so I did a mock up of a board on the top of the boxes after several hours on publisher trying for a curved sign I gave up and settled on this one just sitting in place.

 Sea Road Lady - Page 3 Nameplate_zps0bf3512d

Back to the shed and made these.

When the painting is complete I'll print the name on decal paper and spray gloss over the top.

Cold weather has kept me from the shed got half an hour today and made a 34mm x 28mm water tank still need the bands and tap.
A Berocca vitamin can has a diameter of 25mm so I wrapped a 34mm strip of 1.5mm balsa around it then cut 3 circles from 3mm balsa for the ends.

they really come alive when that first coat of primer goes on and it becomes a ship, and not some bits and pieces of plastic, wood and metal........always like that stage.

We're having a cold spring only had 2 days above 20c

warming in the next week but cold nights continue.

I'll use that green it's the only green my printer produces I'll try printing 2 or 3 times to make it look more solid prior to spraying Auto acrylic clear over it.

Stairs with the primer on I like the colour I think some shoe scuff marks and a coat of satin clear will finish them off.

Sea Road Lady - Page 3 Stprimer_zps655d56eb

I think my hull problem was me pressing to hard whilst sanding back the primer and cracking the surface I blame soft balsa skin moving under pressure of a single finger on this tight curve.
The plaster mixed with high build auto primer worked well.

  Sea Road Lady - Page 3 Plaster-primer_zps66e4acf5

Left it several hours and started sanding back as the dark line shows it wasn't fully dry but sanded well and clogged w/dry paper quickly  lol!

it'll be alright in the end, Damien...............I gave up on balsa wood years ago because I was too heavy handed but admire those of you who can work it the way you do. takes concentration and patience..........something I haven't got when things go wrong. lol

I Have the hull hassles sorted had a warm day yesterday and got primer and colour on the paddle wheels.

Sea Road Lady - Page 3 Pp2_zps85ab56dc

After the problems with mask tape peeling patches of first coat off I lashed out and bought some Fine line low tac mask in 3mm, 6mm and 12mm hopefully it won't happen again.

Masked and brushed the green on the wheel boxes.

Paint on the cabin sides I decided it was easier this way rather than mask the deck around the bridge.

Sea Road Lady - Page 3 Cab_zps1c9f80e8

and made a start on the rails for the stairwell.

Got the upper deck paint mainly finished just the railings to go before a top coat of satin clear.
After fighting with various types of mesh as Glynn Guest used on the original I decided on an extra rail.

Green on hull is dry time to put upper deck in place to appraise the colour mix can say I'm happy with it.

Sea Road Lady - Page 3 Hd_zpsbf1c17a0

Time to add the ramp pulley posts with the car ramps sitting in place as a guide.

Sea Road Lady - Page 3 Cramp_zps115c57a3

Steps to bridge in place will make hand rails tomorrow
The u/deck safety rails painted a very fiddly job for stiff fingers.

Sea Road Lady - Page 3 Bridgestairs_zps299a7d1a

Fitted the deck chain ferrules for the car ramps and fitted the chains to aluminium attachment barwith fishing swivels at outer edge of the ramps.

Sea Road Lady - Page 3 Chains2_zps3c3f0d3e

Chains held with blutac until I epoxy the from inside the hull.

Bench seats for upper deck passengers and deck edge detail this was made of thick card coated with dope to seal it I then brushed a coat of green down the middle when dry i put 3mm pinstripe mask down the middle and brushed the ivory next day i removed the mask and painted the back ivory today, armed with supa glue and bi-carb kicker I fitted it to the deck edge.

My video card is working at present so I'll post pics before it over heats.   confused 

Cut out life boat covers from thin kid leather and glued with pva.

Spent more time in the shed while my computer was broken.

The life boat davits were rather fiddly with the arms finger bent to the plan the fittings each end were turned on my micro lathe several extras were needed as they became airborne whilst parting them off.

Sea Road Lady - Page 3 Davits_zps69dfce3d

After painting.

Sea Road Lady - Page 3 Davpaint_zps1b8f5e95

Next came the siren also fiddly given it's size.

Sea Road Lady - Page 3 Siren_zps37df9696

This next item I have no idea what it is. Glynn Guest put one on the bridge roof of his Ogdensburg ferry it was not on the plan but was in the pictures so I did my best to replicate it.

Sea Road Lady - Page 3 Dohicky_zps5e3eff71

Next was mooring post's and cabin roof vents in the MB's article Glynn used nails for these so I did the same with plasterers clouts, for the vents I mixed some auto filler and applied it to the tops when cured I chucked the nails in my drill and formed the shape with sand paper on the spinning nail.

For want of a name I call this a thingy, it looks better cleaned up and painted.
I lost 4 that were thrown across the shed while parting off on the lathe.
This one I parted to 1mm of brass left and finished with a hacksaw.

The mast made with 1.5mm polystyrene and some scrap I also made brass ferrule for it to sit in so it can be removed for transport.

Coming together started on and finished mounting the motor mount assembly today also cut and joined the drive belt I was surprised after heat joining the 2mm dia synthetic belting and trimming after cooling I couldn't break it I guess that's why the say it's for watchmakers lathe drive.
Any how after fooling with it I thought I'd put the upper deck in place to see what it's looking like.
Must say I'm very pleased with her.

Sea Road Lady - Page 3 Lookingood_zps3c16e049

I printed the Sea road lady name on decal paper trimmed it a put them in soapy water when I pulled the first I realised I forgot a major step I hadn't put a clear sealer coat on to stop the ink from running ohh well another senior moment.

Not finished yet still have final coat of satin clear on the hull and upper deck to do with the airbrush the lower deck I brushed as after the oil and tread marks a bit of rough painting wasn't going to matter.
I'm still awaiting a hull weathering  set from Hongkong, And I, not relishing the thought of getting on my knees beside the bath for the float test and balancing this model is 50mm too wide for my test tank.
And have yet to workout placement an attachment of the cars.

It took some grueling brain work and a profile gizmo to come up with correct profile shapes for the stand taking into account the 9mm foam the hull sits upon.

And some surgery on the six little Renault's for permanent fixture to the deck.
The 1916 truck will have the pin epoxied close to the bow forward of the deck hatch if need be it can be unscrewed from the pin.
The R5 turbo and the R8 Gordini will be weathered with rally muck .

looking really superb, Damien. I wish more would post their builds...there are ( I think) only 3.4 of you posting builds at the mo.......what are people afraid of.?????

No idea Neil, there's the edit function if you make a mistake (which I use frequently) and it's certainly not hard to do even I can do it  lol!  Perhaps photo posting is a deterrent although quite a few members post on other forums.

I also post on paddleducks   as well as Airbrush, lathe  and others.

Perhaps its a confidence thing not wanting to show mistakes or not happy with their workmanship but those of us who post show our muck up's it's part of modelling and a way we learn from the mistakes.
Perhaps I'll start a thread asking that very question  asking for comments.

So much for the grueling brain work yesterday as I laid them out I discovered the lhs of one was 3mm taller on one and the rhs of other was also 3mm taller than the lhs.
I'll blame it on the bug I picked up at christmas lunch.

Can you spot the faults?

Fair enough you really have to look carefully to spot it.

I Remembered the first rule measure 4 times then drill or cut, I now have another check if anything obstructs depth of cut.

Decided to fit the mooring posts measured carefully and marked the spot first went well 2nd I discovered why this new rule applies the hull curved inwards a this location and  after giving a push through hard balsa managed to drill through the%$#@&* hull, didn't need heating in the shed my language was enough heating for the neighborhood.

A little filler now primer tomorrow and some brushed on top coat and it may add to weathering as a patch.

Well the severely hot weather has passed for now but discovered my power cable to the shed draped over the hot water service all the cable saddles i'd glued to the wall with liquid nails had succumbed to the ravages of UV. It seems i'm not as fit as I was 3yrs ago when I put them up. I got 5 saddles up yesterday using 5min UV stabilized epoxy and another 5 to day before my knees gave out only 10 to go then I start cable tying the cable into them all may need new knees before I'm finished at least I picked up a sturdy but cheap 6ft step ladder for $48 or 29quid $60 cheaper the their rival store.

Finally got a display stand made from 3mm MDF and 9mm dual rate foam from a camp mattress left over from when I lined the roof of  my shed to combat condensation.

We had an almost cool day yesterday and I made a start on the Renault 4CV kit the 7th car for the deck.
airbrushed the body/chassis and brushed the rest.
