New to the port lol


VinceP

Recommended Posts

Worked on a 40ft fishing trawler decades ago was fun. 

 

My main purpose for joining is I have a model railroad that has a port area.

 

This will hopefully include some scratchbuilt ocean going freighters.

 

A river that will need a couple of river tow boats with barges. 

 

As for finding this site it was posted on a model railroad site in a post asking about a ship kit for the op's questions. 

 

Another member linked your site. 

 

So here's hoping to get some answers to my stupid build questions. 

 

Thanks for allowing me to join the tidal flats lol.

Welcome to MSW, Vince.    You might do an MSW search (upper right hand corner) for "diorama" as there's been more than a few.

Hello Vince, and a warm welcome from 'Down Under'.  Just remember that the only stupid question is the one you don't ask! :D

Down under could mean the boats floating the wrong way Mate. 

 

Talk about a long drop in the old Dunny lol.

Welcome, Vince! What scale is your layout? And what location and time period?

 

As an old rail modeller, I find this idea rather fascinating. Once you've set a few parameters as above, there's probably a lot of advice available to you for your build (such things as suppliers of scale accessories etc)

Was going to be N scale 1/160 but parts are really hard to get.

 

So may be going HO 1/87.

 

Have a Revell old version 1/72 scale PT-109 kit that in N scale was going to be modified into a Coast Guard cutter but if I go HO will become a small pleasure yacht.

 

Will have to modify the bow a little and build my own upper decks.

 

Now just need to find where I put that kit so I can start a log on it.

 A few other options if you are going to go HO:

I am certain there are others that would do or could be bashed into submission to fill the need, but most of these would take little or no extra work to fill in. As an example the Lindburg Air Sea Rescue boat would make a better cabin cruiser base than a PT boat. 

 

If you want, I also have an old Airfix 1/72 E-boat hull and I believe an Airfix British MGB hull that could possibly do jury duty  if you want them. I would have to go down into the basement and dig them out to be certain of just what I still have. I may also have an old Lindburg fishing trawler that was made RC  years ago but has been sitting around for the last twenty years or so. I would have to double check on that as well.

That would be great as the hulls would be a great start. 

 

And a complete/semi complete kit could be built into a grounded or wrecked hulk. 

 

Thanks a lot if you decide to go to the trouble to look for these.
