Hello to all

These are the stages of the construction of two connector for towing. I've made using the brass rod and brass tubes and copper. All soldered with the torch

For sure the fire hydrant manifold and its valves is knock-out. I hadn't thought
about soldering them like you did. Thank you for the superior piping ideas.

Hello all, to change a little bit the "usual gruel" of the accessories, I continued in the construction of the wheelhouse windows

To achieve proceed as explained in the construction diary of my smit nederland. In practice I have realized the jigs vinyl adhesive that I applied to a Plexiglas sheet 2 mm thick. With tunnel and bench grinder I finished the edges of the windows following the profile of the templates.
Not to confuse with the various windows, I used vinyl in various colors.





The vinyl I will remove it only after having painted the wheelhouse.
When I've finished editing all the windows, the steering will appear as the Rubik's cube.



Hello, I step a few photos of the wheelhouse windows. In practice I have almost finished the 47 windows. As mentioned in previous messages, I applied a syringe needle to the spout of the tube of glue to have a microdosing and prevent sagging

Hello everyone. I tried to re-paint the outside of the ceiling, but the end result did not satisfy me. There is still too much transparency for my taste. So I decided to use "heavy artillery" or micrometer drill to practice the slots that form the inside of the ceiling. To obtain more or less the same shape of the ceiling, I realized silhouettes of vinyl (blue film) that I applied on a PVC strip 2.8 mm thick. The ceiling of the milled slots (3 mm diameter), I cut with a band saw and finished with disc sander. I have practiced a lateral hole for the passage of wires that power the LED (1.2 mm). Always with the usual  vinyl template I clipped from plexyglas sp. 1 mm transparent caps of the last ceiling. Per I applied strips of plasticard from 0.3 mm to simulate the attachment clips of the transparent cover to the fixture body.

Hello, here are the pictures of what was done over the weekend. I realized the pylons that serve for the automatic release of the liferafts. I have them made with plasticard and copper wire. The self-inflating I made them with the rod and beech strips plasticard and copper wire.









Ciao ciao

I started the design and construction of the service crane for handling the tender. There is no a drawing of this davit. The only thing that I could find were a couple of pictures with two different perspectives of shooting. With the help of the computer I traced the lines with the profiles of the crane on the pictures and I managed more or less to have the shapes and dimensions of the crane. At this point I climbed the design to make it consistent with the scale of the model. I exploded all the pieces of the crane, "taking it apart" piece by piece with CAD.
