Well son, From what ive seen of your build, its going to be another classic.

You have not lost your touch for turning out good work even with a long lay off. :) :)

I have been working on the hull starting with the off set anchor portal in the bow and then a second coat of primer on the superstructure ready for yet more sanding.

Thanks Suds,

Been doing some more work on it this week, mainly on the superstructure and some deck fittings.  Will upload some more photographs of my progress soon.

Started building the windlass from the drawing I produced on AutoCAD.  Some old gears, 3mm diameter shafts, copper tube for bearings and some platicard for the brake housing.

With that much detail; you could make the winch operational.

Looking good Tiny!!

The objective is to make a working replica even though in reality the full size windlass is hand operated.  All the gears mesh together and are a tight fit on the shafts so hopefully they should all rotate.  This is the beauty of working at 1:24 scale.  The next step is to build the windlass structure to mount everything on.

Some more progress on the windlass. Just the warping drums to add.
