Nice work - what thickness is the ply you are using for wheelhouse? Bracing behind it?

Hi  Mike  the main casing is 1/8th ply and the wheelhouse is 1/16th with 1/8th square section behind the window frames and 1/8th bulkheads, the funnel is  two layers of 1/32nd ply steamed and curved around a ply former and body filler for the curved top.   Geo

I don't want to be a party pooper but I bought a pair of those kort nozzle props from the Prop Shop and they just did not look right. There was just something not right with the boss/blade connection as something appeared out of proportion, maybe the boss was too small in diameter. Anyway I have two spare props now.

Maybe they have changed the design now. I don't know.

Nice build and a good scale with plenty of power. You are certainly getting on with it.

Hi Vanya,   I have had a good look at the props and all appears to be O K The boss if anything is slightly too large in Diameter but otherwise good.    Thanks Geo

This week I have managed to get the Bulwarks fitted, what a job ???.
It really makes her look like a tug now. and also made the deck access hatches for the steering and the ballast compt.
