I’ve been away from MSW for a few months and have recently returned.Your progress is a delight to behold and a serious inspiration. Your log has prompted me in a number of ways - I’m chewing through a number of machinist’s tomes and I can say, i have a tiny lathe now and have even soldered in the last few weeks. (Nothing to show for it on the modeling front yet - the current project is more about learning planking.)  In any case, thanks for sharing your beautiful work and happy New Year!

Hi Eric, bit late with the reply but thanks for looking in and your kind comment do apricate it.

 

So have done a little more to her but not so much in making but redoing, it started with the lower chain plates, which I had made from the brass strips .016" thick supplied with the kit found this out once I removed them, thought I had used some .010" brass sheet.

So now I remade them out of .005" solder small tube to the ends then made a jig to drill the mounting holes and now have the lower chain plates more to scale.

Then was not to happy with the black paint job so sanded that down and as per Robin letting me know that I had not painted the sides right I masked the hull up to include black up the sides of the main rail and Monkey rail, board and buffalo rail.

Put some semi gloss on

Next up was to remake the eye bolts for the deadeye strops which I had made from wire and did not look to good, tried by making out of thicker wire and then soldering a small tube to the ends, but this did not work to well when I went to bend them to go around deadeye 🤔

So decided to use .016" brass flat bar worked out where I needed the holes, drill them first then filed to shape then bent to shape, came out way better than my first try.

Casey blacked all parts and will use a small bolt and nut

Well not much to show these past few months have to figure what I am going to do with the scroll around the hawse holes then paint the cove, then the name plates.

 

Thanks again for all who have looked in and commenting on my on going build.

 

Regards

Richard

Nice to see you back with an update on your Bluenose Richard.  Great work on the chainplates, eyebolts and such.  Really like those clamps too.

Richard, beautiful work with the chainplates .... and more.
Make me considering going back to the drawing (build) board and re-do mine.

 

Thanks Per as you see from the pic above the re-do was needed, you should try it, was a lot of fun but it was also a lot of filing

Not sure why you started with a kit Richard. You seem to reject and remake most of the detailed stuff - excellent as usual.

 

Hi Keith thanks for your kind comment, I have been told this before on other sites, and I am not quite sure why! did follow the instruction in the manual, used the supplied brass flat bar and then miss interpreted how the chain plate should look, and then I look at a lot of pictures, so it needed to get reworked will look like the picture now

Fine work as always, Richard. I just posted yesterday on my windlass and still have to fashion the bilge pumps. Then it's on to the chain plates. I'll be sure to check your previous posts as I proceed.

 

By the way, what type of solder are you using?
