Looking good, I suppose 1/350? The added railing looks very tidy so far... soon it will be my first time to try that...

Yes, its 1/350 scale, the bent railing railing parts are relatively short.

The longer the railing parts are, if curved or not, the more difficult for me..

Giddey to all,

 

I tried to scratch build the coal winches, but as they are very tiny peaces (3 mm height) and 20 x, I did not succeed.

So I decided to 3D print them. I worked many hours with TINKERCAD and learned to use it.

Then I uploaded the 3D file at SHAPEWAYS and ordered the model.

Starting the next lesson: the printability! Loose shells, thin walls and the scale.

The design of the coal winch is relatively simple there are only 8 shells, so I got it after 6 tries.

Here are the pic´s of this design:spacer.png

and the real thing:spacer.png

here is the next step for the build, 3D printed boat davits and the 2 boat cranes:

take look at the red arrow !

 

the boat davits - challenge was/is they should be movable!

and the real challenge - the 2 boat cranes!

I have to make 2 different designs to get it placed at my model.

 

As designed with tinkercad

A very komplex design, 4 movable parts, 2 different designs and more than 60  shells!

When shapeways noted issues, I had to disconnect up to 20 shells, -change the design, realign and connect the shells again.

When uploaded I often discovered missing shells, and start all over again.

 

Here what i ordered at shapewaysspacer.png

I am waiting now for the printed parts
