Good evening everyone

 

having asked a few people i have decided to change the way i post my updates for this build. i so wanted to keep it clean and tidy, but as it is quite a big build there are lots of little projects that can be progressed

 

Wheel house continues

to hide the wiring i am trying to put it behind panels, the three lights under the bridge are in a position of my choosing as it is being built for my wife, and thats where she wanted them

MAIN DECK

so far i have used 50m of lime strip 1x5mm and need about the same again to completed the fordeck

 

the hatched took me a while, as the kit just reuired them to be fixed the the lined deck, so i had to plank around them

 

paint used for the hatches is MIG IDF green i bought for the D9R that i never finished

i need to get on with the wheelhouse, and although i have a couple of general phots the rest is artistic licience, But the divider between the chart house and radio room is removable so i could do it all again, to many light i know but it is all wireless remote so i have all different brightness and solid or flashing mode, also with different speeds

anyone seen any decent photos of a trawler deck wrt weathering

 

and would a 1930 trawler have its deck treenailed,

 

i have used lime strips for the decking, and as it is a working boat it looks far to clean

you've sure made a lot of progress with her Kevin.......look'in very good :)   B would be my choice too.......not to worry if it fades,  a sealer will bring it back out again as well as the grain ;)   tree nailing is a hit or miss thing.......on some it stands out,  while on others it tends to blend in...especially if you plan on weathering the deck.   you probably should have done it though before you stained the deck,  then the pattern could take on a look of it's own.

    I'm not say'in you can't do it now.......it's just that it won't have the base tint.  usually,  I do the simulated calking and go from there.  your layout so far looks awesome! :)

I may go to pencil treenails over the next week or so, very little os the deck will be seen  it gets quite cluttered on this one, lol not quite like a 1st rate

good evening everyone

 

im happy with the way the two decks have turned out, the grain now shows with a matt clear varnish on top

 

 

the superstructure was quite rough using red primer, so has now been attacked with a hairy stick and painted red ochre

main deck fitted into the hull, sprayed red and brought into the man cave

main cowl vents made still to be painted

and tonight she looks like thisIMG_4412.thumb.JPG.c2a5276d13a622f828139fb882ce8b96.JPGIMG_4413.thumb.JPG.bc788eaa69db8cc882cb381335174247.JPGIMG_4414.thumb.JPG.1f59bdbe54e968c3b1fa95eb150c73f7.JPG

Hi Kevin

Very nice work you are and have done on your St Nectan. Sorry for my late arrival at your build log but I do get so very much tied up in my own little Old Ship Yard that I very seldom look around the Form. I am missing so very much by doing so. I keep telling my self to get out and look around but to no avail.

Just love your Led Lighting, I believe that it adds so much to ones builds and it also turns ones ships into a great night lamp,               Enjoy

Regards   Lawrence

Lawrence  good evening

since i changed my job 2 years ago, i have no travelling, a slightly lower salary and lost my just doing 4 day week, it is also a lot more tiring, as a result my post count has dropped tremendously.

So a month or so back i kind of stopped all PC  gaming and vowed to spend time on my builds instead, i am back now full of ideas and dreams of future builds

Good evening everyone

 

work continues as a when i have the opportunity, which is a lot more recently due to changes i have made with my free time, 

 

the superstructure  has now got the wheel house fitted, i used two part epoxy for that, to ensure i had time to line it up

IMG_4422.thumb.JPG.03f93d0784eeb915c94dcab6a7dba7dc.JPG

 

bracing has been added under the boat deck, and more lighting, perhaps i am overdoing the leds but they dont all have to be on at the same time and they are adjustable brightness

IMG_4427.thumb.JPG.289abd852652faddf87b751b3cd1feca.JPG

 

the cod liver house has been made ready, but at present i dont know how much of the step has to be removed as the rudder cables come from under there

the colours are the admirals choice, being built for her, i even like the yellow, it will appear on a few things like the funnel

 

gallows/otter boards still very much wip , the video explains it better than i could

Good afternoon everyone

 

Foredeck now needs attention, so i have again used 6mm x 1mm x 300 Lime strips, i ordered 100 of it knowing i would use about 50% of it on the deck alone

 

perhaps went to far wrt the nibbling lol (never heard of the word before this build) but now finding it difficult to get the margins fitted, and then the bow will be closed in with the waleback 

 

the  5 squares will be the the fish hatches, they are covered over and was no need to cut them out, but in my cutaway idea i left the option open, should i display what they look like within the hullIMG_3585.thumb.JPG.3e1c5b80da6054396abdb3a2f33a0a83.JPGIMG_4438.thumb.JPG.e101e04a77735c38bb6df1a9e143f240.JPGIMG_4439.thumb.JPG.45235a4343f83716da59a040af2559dd.JPGIMG_4441.thumb.JPG.0d8e3a4269c7dd1d3a5b1ed0634971d6.JPGIMG_4442.thumb.JPG.fcbd59ad2f1718d7b2ac88cc0a3068ee.JPGIMG_4443.thumb.JPG.31c1f0b32a1c46fd720d212d3701bb37.JPGIMG_4445.thumb.JPG.f3b8d1dd70da39b4c6baa9121968b92e.JPGIMG_4447.thumb.JPG.06cfbc3fd1755c92650f0eb90fab729d.JPGIMG_4448.thumb.JPG.3963a9ace292ab68f2854694086136f1.JPGIMG_4449.thumb.JPG.c6311aa612fc70b4fe6e168cc542a654.JPG

Good evening everyone

 

sometimes you just have to admit that you are wrong, and i do it perhaps to often, I avoid the hull, i just seam to not want to do anything thing with it and when i eventually get the work done, i say well what the hell was all the fuss about

 

i hate putting holes, as they always used to be in the wrong place, and spend twice as long correcting it, but the rudder assembly went in with out to much fuss and now sealed it the correct position with 2 part epoxy

 

the shaft still needs work doing to it as it is not in line with the keel

IMG_4564.thumb.JPG.b4347a83ff33360b35672228829fb2a3.JPGIMG_4565.thumb.JPG.ad25bd286a2b0ea7d14d1b1e14ee3d16.JPGIMG_4566.thumb.JPG.2938993ce11b4666874b77c92c5c6311.JPGIMG_4567.thumb.JPG.030e1dd3a0631b4f8480536570f89640.JPGIMG_4568.thumb.JPG.0687c519116e5854f9fa0d7aa01db02d.JPGIMG_4569.thumb.JPG.1234216711893511c0f7efae949c4ab0.JPGIMG_4570.thumb.JPG.cf339c120728fe7209073769c6530295.JPG

i never knew these vessels had deck lighting, so that has been sorted, each one works but not tested them all at the same time, the fittings are small portholes sunken into the deck and the leds were secured and i have poured pva glue into the the void to give a lens effect

IMG_4489.thumb.JPG.8cee90523bd3dac49a54a73c543919d2.JPGIMG_4490.thumb.JPG.a9fc6c2c0285546d62a24ff5d262a459.JPG

 

the cod oil house sits above the rudder,  to gain access to it i drilled a large hole under the oil house and the put a cover over it which can be clamped down and also serve as a base to keep the house in position

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
