Din,

Slowly inching toward paint...

Great job Panin! I really liked the radio and all the details you put into it.

Can't you hear the chorus chanting? ..."Paint! Paint! Paint!...."

Continuing with the detailing is now the turn for the wheelhouse clock, to make it I used two
Pieces of round tube. One 8mm x 2.5mm long and one 7mm x1.5mm long

This are glued together

Then a styrene strip of 1.5mm was glued to the smaller end.

I did a scan of one of the original clock and reduced it to about 6.4mm diameter

The details of the hinge and door lock are done now

Here the completed clock, the glass is made with clear styrene and a piece of PH from the Edward detail set is used as the frame for the glass.


The finished and painted clock, it is the first part of the boat to receive paint!

The original clock



Now the center compass received a couple more details, the rectangular box on its side
Is supposed to be an access door. So I corrected the shape to look more like the original

The area is sanded down in a round shape

With bits of styrene I created the door hinge



Finally the door knob is made and glued in place

Now it looks like the original

Now is the dingy turn for some detailing, I used the dingy from dragons kit #6076

After assembling it, all the details are sanded off leaving only the tie downs for the main rope around the dingy.

The gaps around the bottom piece are filled and sanded smooth

The new bases for the oars are constructed with styrene; also 3 seats are made also from styrene


Here it is finished just awaiting paint and the rope around it


Now the back light gets a new stand tube and base, in the instructions it is glued to the back wall of the hatch cover, but in reality it goes behind the wall on the floor. I cut the small tube and replaced it with a new one measuring .050x16.5mm long. The base is a 3mm dia. styrene disk

Here the locating slot is filled with a piece of styrene; the real light goes behind this wall bolted to the floor

Here is its new location


That’s all for now, it seems I will be scratch building the mines too as I can’t find any of the resin ones on the net.
Moore soon and thanks for watching!

Hello to all my friends finally got the time to do another update on the schnellboot build. I have being
Looking for a set of cammett mines for a while now with no results, so I set to make my own set. Just when I finished the first mine I came across a big lot of parts for the schnellboot on ebay and there Was the cammett mines. This will make things easier and now I have more time to focus on painting Still I added missing details from the cammett mines , so here is what it’s being done till now.
The cammett mines, very nice detail on it as it comes


Before I began assembling the mines I made a resin mold of it as I wanted to have 6 mines on my boat
and the cammett set comes with only 4, here is the mine cart and complete mine with the original



I needed to make some of the parts from scratch like the PE hooks, lift eyes and other pieces. I started
by the hooks used to keep the mine secured on top of the cart
A piece of styrene of 2mm wide is cut

Next one corner is made round

The other side is sanded to shape with a semi round file

Now it is cut to 2mm long

Finally a small disk of is cut to make the base of the hook, I replaced all the hooks on all the mines 18 in total

Comparison with original PE hook

The extra lift eyes needed are made, measuring 2.5mm wide by 3mm tall and all are replaced with the
plastic ones


Here the hooks are glued in place; it needs to align with the mine support on each side


Now the mine cart received handles made with cooper wire and the lift eyelets on its sides

22 plastic reinforcement’s triangles are made for the guard’s plates to be used on the 2 extra carts each
Is 5mm long by 1mm tall

The triangles mounted on the spare PE guards from the cammett kit (4 spares are included)

A small disk 2mm diameter is drilled to the cable diameter and glued to the cart where the lower cable
comes out


With cooper wire of .04 diameter I constructed the cables for the mines, 3 strands are twisted together
Then the end is bend to shape


The release linkage has to be scratch build as the PE one in the kit is a …... the original is cut in
two parts Each about 5mm long

A piece of small chain is attached to it
\

The cable drum is attached and a piece of .040 cable glued to the back of the drum

After drilling the hole, glue the pin with the chain in place

Glue the cooper cable on the lower hole

Pass the drum cable trough the chain and lower cable and connect it to the front of the weight, you need to make the drill on it first.


To make the shackles for the mine main cable I used 0.85 diameter soldering wire

Pass the shackle trough the loop of the main cable on top of the cart and glue it in place

To make the mine release rod I used two chain links and cooper wire soldered together , then used a piece of 0.40 hex rod to form the complete part


Using the same cooper wire, bend it in a hook shape and then flatten it, the final length is 5mm long



The third hook is glued just above the solder line on the mine, not where the cammett instructions tell
You to.

With cooper wire make the two securing wires that hold the mine to the cart


Finally the release rod is installed in place, the cooper hook is glued to the pin with the chain, now It only needs paint..




The painting process of the boat has already began, the boat is painted in its basic colors and more to
paint, here are a couple of pictures
Had to photograph it outside as the work table is full of paints and parts, sorry about that






Thanks to all and sorry for the long delay
Abdin
