Part 7 : new "beting" ( i don't know the english word for it, but who knows let me know  ;))

So in the meantime i will call it beting. The old beting was glued in backwards by mistake and was made from wood. I made a copy of the beting from the tug Krimpen because it was allmost a copy of the beting of the Kinderdijk.

The beting that i made is from a brass rod. One of the new item's in comparison with the old one were the two half pipes in the middle of the beting with some hooks.

Thanks guy's,

The flange at the bottom is'nt original unfortunately, the hole's in the deck were a bit bigger than the brass rod's but it looks like it belongs there  :-[.

part 8: lighting on the tow deck.

It's just a small part but distinctive for this type of tug.

Under the hood of the lamp is a big glass cover over the acual light bulb and i immitate this with a with LED in a warm white colour.

Part 9:  new deck

The deck was a flat surface and i replaced that for sheets with a teardrop motif, i coverd the deck with paper models and with the models i cut the plastic sheets. The welds between the sheets i made with putty.









And after the paint job.

This spring or summer i will make some new pictures on the water even with all the lights  :)

Part 10 : vent's and inlets

Along the inner bullwarks are some fueltank vents en fuel inlets and several air vents. All the vents and inlets were made from brass or copper wire.




Incuding the nuts and bolds in the flange


Next to the spring bollard the fueltank vent




Watertank in and outlets

The only problem with these close ups is that you will see inperfections on the paint job, but now it look's like it's painted by hand by the crew  :-[

Today i made a little hand valve which is located directly behind the wheelhouse. This hand valve is from the day fuel tank. I made it before, but i lost it when it fell on the floor  ??? never the less i made this little detail again and this is the result.

Part 11:  front fender and some little stuff

In this part you will see some pictures of the front fender. In ducth it's called "leguaan" and translated in english iguana but its just a rubber fender  ;D

Some ships have a fender made of rope, realy a piece of art.





As seen here at the 1:1 Tug

unfortunately it was not the correct fender at the time of the kinderdijk. I found a picture of the Kinderdijk when she was transfered to the owner and there you see a rubber tube.

And that's much easier to make than a knotted rope fender  ;D




The tension on the chains wich are running through the rubber tube is created with two threaded rods.



and the model


These rods i cut from a 1.5mm brass rod and made a nut at the end as well

At two places allong the bullwarks there were wooden stepladders and here from some plywood, the models.





As you can see i damaged the steps on purpose and with some weathering techniques later on i weather them down a little bit more.


The last thing in this post will be a bucket that i made from some left over brass. The bucket is called Puts in dutch. But is just a bucket to throw overboard to get some water.

Nice Work!
Where did you find the hex brass for bolts? I looked in the LHS brass display but didn't see any there.

Thanks,
mike

Hello Mike,

i bought the hex brass by a dutch metal shop. The have a display with all the brass profile's for modeling.

I can sent you a link :

http://metaalwinkel-metalen.nl/index.php?item=5&aitem=290

http://www.fechtner-modellbau.de/shop/index.html
And if you download the catalogue, on page 41 you will find 1mm hex brass or bigger. And this compagny sends world wide.

Mike  at youre service  ;)

Part 12:  towing hook

In this part the construction of the towing hook.

In the first picture the original towing hook



My goal was to make an working hook, but with soldering it went wrong so i decided to make a look a like but half functional.







On the forground the old towing hook.




Exploded view.



Assembled

As you can see the hook is spring loaded, in real there is also a big spring behind the hook. The reason for this spring is to compensate the suddenly retreating tow line .


Mounted in the back wall of the structure.




Allmost ready, there is still missing a thin line running to the wheelhouse so the could remotely release the towing hook.
