Great! One of my major clients deals in Conveyor Belt spares, and I should be able to strike gold soon.

The Mermaid is coming along well, as you can see. Plan to skin her over the weekend.

I love the second snap, taken by my daughter, it shows me working on the RAF Crash Tender in the background.

Hull skinning completed. Now for all the filling and sanding to start.

Interesting comparative study from your left to right - RAF FIRE Rescue / PT 109/ Mermaid/Schnellboot

Not much achieved as I have been busy with the RAF Crash Tender. Just some pictures to show the comparative sizes.

Don't wake a Tiger until you've factored the teeth



How do you bend the ply so evenly? Is it the result of all the pumping iron?

The ply has to steamed and bent into shape. You have to work up some steam when you are pumping iron to get into shape. Roughly the same.

Initial coat of paint. Not happy with it and may decide to repaint her completely. Windows out of card and framed with soldering flux. Window frames will be painted Chrome or White depending on the final cabin colour. If I retain the blue, I will frame them in white. What do you say?

Have you started using your compressor/air brush? Should give a good finish.

I've completed about 80% of the Neptune (in 2 & 4 mm Sunboard) and now I appreciate your builds even more Cheesy

Midnight ramblings.....

While building a boat, at the very beginning we have to decide whether we are building something that is purely 'functional' (for IIT type competitions) devoid of all details and aesthetics or are we going in for a scale build with additional details. If we don't do this, the transition from a 'functional' build to a 'detailed scale build' can be a daunting, frustrating task.

Stay tuned for details............

Finally ready for her maiden. Finishing touches remain.

She carries the name 'JAYSHIL". It is a portmanteau derived from my Mother - JAYanti and my Father - SHILaditya.

More to follow soon.
