HM Mortar Convulsion


Recommended Posts

As a newcomer to model ship building, I chose the Caldercraft kit of the HM Mortar Convulsion for my first model. Whilst for most part the plans are self-explanatory I have an issue with the tiller which has two parts but neither the plan nor the instructions advise how the pieces relate to each other. I presume that they are glued side by side to take the fixing rod but before I do this I am hoping that a fellow member might confirm this. Unfortunately there are no images of this model that I can view.

I finished my Convulsion a few months ago A great little kit for a beginner like my self 

The rudder was in 2 pieces and I remember making a small tenon joint at the top of the rudder to attach the tiller to It is advisable not to attach the tiller arm till all the rigging etc is done and tidy as i can just about guarantee that you will catch it and you will spend time cursing yourself this is the same for the Elm tree pumps they are also fantastic at getting in the way of your rigging tools and lines Mark drill and dry fit but install after the rats nest is complete !!!

Thats my 10 cents worth
