Get rid of the plastic props  :) Go for 4 blade brass ones  ;)

I'm suprised that Model Slipway add them to their kits  angry angry angry

Prop Shop do nice ones and also Cornwall Model boats, go for 'kort props' these are shaped to hug the kort

Regards, Dan.

ps, remember to order 1 left handed and 1 right handed prop,
Photos / Information, I nearly have them all !

Already been there. Too much talking and not enouth action for me. Now I am wishing I hadn't decided to use the spare room for my build as I could be doing some more work to it now but Suzi is snoring in the next room and I dont want to wake her up           do I :)

Hya folks. Things didnt go too well yesterday afternoon. I spent the best part of 3 hours trying to get the props, rudders and korts all to line up properly. I just couldn't get both sides to line up the same. It appeared that one side rudder holes was too far to the stern. But measuring the holes everything tallied up. Then I slid both the arrowed parts up the same prop tube.

They were at different angles. So some work with a file in one of the prop tube holes and it all lined up fine. Phew that problem took some locating but only 5 minutes to fix.
Everything loosely located in its right place and its out with the Araldite Rapid.



I have only glued in the kort supports for now, will glue the rest tonight.


How am I doing for a nivice????? confused confused confused

Looks good.  Figuring out problems like that is part of the experience.

Re plastic props in the kit.
Brass props would add at least 20 to the price of the kit. The plastic props work, they can be painted brass or bronze. They are Robbe's and what's good enough for Robbe is good enough for us :)

Hi Jackie,

I know the plastic props will work and they are good quality, but my point (of which I didn't state correctly) is that the full size Yorkshireman was built with 4 bladed kort props, if we go to the high level of detailing of which is in all your model kits, why not supply 4 bladed props as in the old Yorkshireman (the white metal ones) , if people are willing to pay the good price you sell the new Yorkshireman for then they will then go elsewhere to buy 4 bladed kort props to get a true scale. (Whats 20 extra on a model kit for a true reproduction ? )

Regards, Dan.
