Thanks Mike, but the realism is the hard part  :D for me as a modeller, i'm not easily satisfied with my own work. So sometimes i make parts 2 or 3 times to get it right :-[.

Part 13:  Structure on the tow deck.

The structure on the back of the towdeck is the entry to the crew cabins and storage room. The entrance consist of two doors and an sliding hatch, on the right and left side of the entrace there is a hatch with a ladder down the storage rooms. On the old structure i removed the old door and hatches and make new more detailed one's. Even the bar's that guide the towline are renewed.

But here are some picture's to illustrate the changes:


New doors


the hatches and towline guide bars renewed.

The sliding hatch is made of Fosforbrass it's a hard metal, thin and very light. The hatch consists of two parts a sliding part and fixed part.


Hatch made of brass



Allmost ready even the hinges on the hatches at the back i tried to make.

Thanks steve,


But this will be one of the last update's for now. I will make some new details, for instance the hinges on the doors, the roof of the wheelhouse and more of the litte stuf. The reason is, that i focus my work at the voith units and the built of the hull for the Kwintebank this winter.

But for the interesed people of this thread 2 more detail pictures.



Nice stuf that resin you can even see the scape of the glass from the towlight.



The hatch which gives entrance to parts of the steeringengine  ( the total cover was not at the correct place if you can see at the time that i made the picture  :-[ )

Part 14:  anchor

I found some picture's on my pc from the anchor for the Kinderdijk so we have a small update  ;D

The Kinderdijk had only one anchor on the right side, her big sister de Krimpen has 2 anchors so a took one of the anchors as a model for the Kinderdijk.

This type of anchor is called a "Klipanker" in dutch i don't know the english word for it.



And on the model it will be something like this :

Last update :

For now it will be the last update that i shall make for this project. And if there is anything worthwhile to show i will let you know.

This last item is the airhorn on the wheelhouse roof.

I made this from two different materials brass and aluminum and glued the parts together.

Hi all:

Today i made the compass, i was sure that the dome on top of the wheelhouse was a perioscope or had something todo with the air ventilation but when i emailed the owner of the Krimpen i was wrong. The dome on top is the housing of the compass.

I made 2 rings that can tilt, so that the compass will always be level whatever the position of the ship ( whithin normal conditions  ;D )  but pictures say more than my lousy englisch  :-[ ;)
