  1. that has come on very nice indeed I used to often think, oh i would just love to build something different (lorry, car, plane), purchase, open, start, get bored, as to why I have no idea, so now i just admire others work
  2. good evening everyone now on day 60 of the build, and she has come on a bit since the last update
  3. good evening everyone thankyou for comments and like comments day 48 tween deck transverse beams a lot of progress made in the last few days i decided to make a lot the internal decks and deckheads in modules i have found, for me it works very well, and allows me to get all the longitudinals quite straight, also allows painting a lot easier lots of transverse beams ready for fitting these are for the stbd side midships engine room lower level ready for paint tween decks level nearly complete, looks sqiffy due to the fact the decks are just placed on, and not slotted into position
  4. good evening, everyone thank you for comments and likes let me know if you are getting bored with my posts, please day 43 tween deck box girders frames 54 to 99, upper deck transverse beams port side 17 to 54 painted cargo hold deck and bilge tanks Kevin’s shipyard paint schedule - machinery spaces green decks customer requirement – green decks in all cargo holds forward of the engine room and machinery spaces (this is just as well as I painted them wrong) the transverse beams are attached to the longitudinals but not the box girders Day 44 tween decks box girders made upto frame 99, all lower deck cargo bulkheads made up
  5. good evening everyone thank you for comments and likes no dog photo bombs tonight day 42 port side engine levels corrected, bulkhead 84 made up and fitted everything with a clip is just a temp hold, not glued
  6. i hoping the detail where possible will be shown as sections will remain open if it was brass i would be looking for handouts lol and it would be far to heavy
  7. good evening everyone thank you for comments and likes day 41 engine room levels as the port side will be fully enclosed i started putting in the engine room levels for that side everything seams to be lining up so far put some paint down as well today green and white for machinery spaces, grey and grey with white box girders and deck heads for the holds i had some decent outside photos of the engine room until i realised i had put the i had put the flat level in the wrong position, oh and the boi wanted a mention lol couple of the better photos from today with the engine room level in the wrong position
  8. Good evening everyone thank you for comments and likes Day 40 stern frames complete, and stbd side steering flat frames are in the build slowed down for a few days as i had to finish the Easter project, but managed to get a good few hours on her today.
  9. Good evening everyone day 37 stern build up continues, and a wheelie bin 3 days since my last post, and not much to show for it, life got in the way the stern build up is now mainly complete, i just want to add some paint to the hard to get to places before the frames go in, i will do that next to prevent any damage occuring the white painted section is the steering gear flat, it will get a green deck before the longitudinals go back in
  10. Good evening everyone thank you for comments and likes day 34 box girders and crocodile clips the after peak has been fitted and stands up quite well on its own, however the more support i can give it the safer it is the box girders are now starting to line it all up, no glue has been used since the last post i have no intention of passing the forward engine room bulkhead for a while with intentions of staying with the after part of the build
  11. good evening everyone this build seams to have attracted some attention, so i had better make a decent job of it, and finish it this year Day 32 engine room tween deck module and after peak been doing some garden work the last couple of days but yesterday i varnished 12 sheets of card on both sides to allow more cutting out personally i have found it easier to work away from the kit rather than on the build itself
  12. good evening everyone yep sorry its me again day 30 engine room bulkheads taken me most of the day to build these two and get them in place, when i say most of the day, perhaps 4 to 5 hours modelling, meals, dog walking hubby doos all adds up but, im happy with the progress, very happy indeed, means now i can set the engine room up and see in i can convert the 1/16 engine to 1/70 next will be the engine room levels girders, which will straighten up the bulkheads
  13. good evening everyone thank you for comments and likes day 29 shaft tunnel rightly or wrongly, i build this up as a standalone, so that it could be painted separately, all the decks in machinery/non cargo spaces within the hull will be green i quite like the colour i found, the white is just primer, the port side will not be seen so i left it unpainted so that i can see the frame numbers the after cargo hold bulkhead is next to be made up and then fitted as a large section some of you will recognise me having done this in January this year working on the shaft tunnel number 48
