Coming along fine Andy, but I donít think you will make your deadline.  ;) ;) ;)

Brian 

Its a big job this one, I am going to the South West model Show next weekend, will take the Ironsider 'as is' at the time, but will take my Nangee and Steam Launch for the show, will hopefully attack the Ironsider on my return, as I will have a further week off.

Had a few days off, relaying a patio, and the South West Model Show this weekend, so fitted the bulwark cappings today, and the bulwark stanchions, made the samson posts and deck doublers and fitted same.

Thanks for that, nice picture of Ironsider, I can see I really need to double up on the stanchions.

More progress today, sprayed the hull and deck. Photo of boat on the reworked patio that stopped work on the boat for a week.!!!



Did a ballast check this evening, in the fish pond, I fitted the 12v 10amp/hr battery I bought  from The Component Shop at the show last weekend, added 3 lumps of lead at 1.3kg each, not quite down to the marks but not far off, probably another two kilo's, but will wait now till all the electronics fitted.

Adding a flat bar to the leading edge of the bulwark stanchions is a nice detail touch also.

Bit of work, but looks great when all painted, and such.

...Cheers...

I did try to bend the plasticard to create that effect, just like the real thing, but you lost more stanchions than you gained, I think it was 4 tries to get one which wasn't very good, I also thought of doing it like you said, much more practical.

I wish I had the patience to do the flatbar bit, maybe when its finished I'll start again with the fiddly bits, thats what I did with my last build.

fitted the radio tray today, and battery. Tested in the pond with a 15 amp controller and a 15 amp fuse, all well, the 7.5amp I tried first failed.
