The aperture for the access to the rear survivors cabin has been drilled and opened up...…..tomorrow I'll straiten up the edges and then start building the cabin from the bottom up, lol.

got 2, Bob...…...a 2000 watt Elu that will cut through basically anything, and a small one with diamond tipped blade that I use for trimming grp mouldings………...but in limited spaces I use my favourite technique of drilling and reaming out the hole...…..and that was a limited space lol.

Well then, how about a Pad Saw?

What`s with the Reaming?....Do you mean....Enlarging?

Apologies for my trivial comments

I`m just passing time, while the glue sets!

in tools Bob, there is nothing that that I need that I haven't got and collected in my 50 years of serious building and 61 years of model making.

as for reaming.……..yes..partly enlarging the holes, but not circumference wise, but sideways so that one hole meets the other and so on until all holes have been joined together and the inside falls out...……..simple technique and then just a matter of cleaning up the lines of the hole.

by the way...….buy some faster acting glue. smileylaughwinkcheeky

This afternoon the glue has been setting as I dribble it along the bits to be stuck together! Similarly my acrylic paint has be drying such that the first brush stroke is dry before I finish the last bit.

Just so hot!

I am casting some lifeboat figures at the moment with polyurethane quick set resin. normally I have about 4 minutes from pouring together and mixing to it going off and gloopy...…….today it has been down to about 2 minutes maximum

got to work fast and do half the resin that I normally do.

anyway.....

TODAYS job was to straighten up the inner deck, get it fitting on to the boat [ as the deck really tightened the cabin up and made it a tighter fit on the combing than it was].

and cutting the access to the rear cabin and looking at the supplied W/T door, to see about thickening it.

deck straightened, job done.

fit to deck, getting there but job not fully done.

access to cabin and thickening the w/t door...…..job done.

its windy, rainy, cold and depressing weather for the end of June, so yet another day indoors with my new baby, my Tyne.

today was the turn of the inner walls and floor for the aft cabin of the boat......to be detailed, but have to say, not much really to detail in it...…..having said that...……..anyone got a shot of the rear access plate so that I can put that in...…….it is on the rear wall that allows restricted access to the tiller flat and the hydraulics for the rudders and trim tabs......would like to put that in as it is facing the opening W/T door in the cabin.

Make your own contribution to the Website

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
