Hope you used Cascamite?

 

Sort of. A ready mixed version called Aliphatic Resin. Very popular with model boat building apparently.

Lovely idea and looking forward to seeing it progress.

 

Nice trawler, too!

 

 

 

 

 

And there was me, thinking you had made the Stover Canal navigable up to Bovey Tracy!

Welcome back George. Following this one with interest. I have just been recapping the Bovey Tor thread for tips on making gorse!

Many thanks Alex. It feels real good to be back building something again.

That is one very nice boat. I like the jig you’ve made to support it. Or is that how it will be held on the layout?

How big is the real thing? I’m struggling to get a sense of how big it would be in real life.

Thanks very much Tortuga.

 

The plans are for a 45' stern trawler. The model is about 320mm in length.

The jig was only made to support it in the early construction phase. When attaching the bulkheads to the keel. It won't be used for support in the harbour.

Eventually the boat will be either leaning against the harbour wall, or else supporting itself with yacht legs. Some just lean on their hull.

YEY ! 

And he's off again, brilliant George and very much liking the boat build.

 

I condone the use of Alf Hattick glue it really does give a strong bond once cured.

 

I used it on this shell whilst building / planking and gives a really tight seal too.

All the best mate.

Hey you G man!

 

Welcome aboard! Excellent work on the boat. Do tell more about it. 

 

 

 

Ey Up George,

 

You don't want my stuff clogging up your thread mate, suffice to say it has been shown elsewhere on previous occasions. However, the inspiration came after a trip to  Cotehele House where I saw the book ( which it's resting on ) with a history and also a plan insert......so off I went !

It is made from 1mm ply cut / steamed and bent to fit the frames, which were also made on a jig much the same as you're doing.

She is still at that stage as I never finished her due to moving house....one day maybe ?

Many thanks John. It's good to be back.

 

The new spot is Minehead. 60+ years in the big smoke is enough for this man.

Somerset and Devon, neighbours. And not too far from your neck of the woods I guess.
