Paul

Thanks for your advice on the glue stuff

Don`t fancy the aggro of steam, having seen my fellow club members messing about with their stuff!

Think two geared 540`s driving each paddle will make enough splash.....That`s what is in GE and they do OK

Do you know.....The paddle boxes have transfers to simulate the vent holes!........Ridiculous

It is a kit Bob and I imagine that there has to be some concession for the less experienced builders.

first panel epoxied, 2nd glued and screwed.jpg

There you go Bob, First panel epoxied to Side wall, just placed in and a piece of Plasticard bent in to hold it in place and then second panel to that wood glued and screwed, you won't move that.

Thanks Duckie

What epoxie have you used?

Does it set hard or is it like sticky toffee?

There you go Bob, where I bought this I can't remember though, but as it says on the left hand bottle, clear,hard and non brittle, had this for the last three models, you can use it when I've finished with it on this model, though knowing you, you'll want to start this afternoon!.

A rather confused picture of the paddle drive framework

Quite a trick assembly to align due to the lack of reference surfaces

The final glueing stage.........Hopefully all is shipshape and tidy?

The endwalls and tray needed to have reference centre lines for accurate alignment

I would be interested to hear any comments from previous builders on the section?

While the glue sets, time to make a start on the paddlewheels

All the parts are nicely made, but rather fiddly to assemble.......Note the box container to prevent those little pesky pivot pins from getting away!

I hope there are a few spares in the kit!

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.
