Hi Guys, I hope you have all paid your fees to Cadman, :lol_3: :thumbs_up_1:

We are having a change tonight from planking, on ID we have some metal decks, I never like just painting over ply or plastic, I like to plate my decks, some times with cardboard but this time a new technique with the litho plate,

Looking like batman, this is the deck pattern of the rear superstructure when cut out, it is turned over and marked off like 8ft x 4ft sheets of steel, then it is scribed on the back lightly.

Next it is glued down using contact adhesive.
Attachment:
idx233.jpg
idx233.jpg [ 56.14 KiB | Viewed 2840 times ]


Combings are cut round the edge, at the back of the turret I have shown some riveting.

This is the shape of the upper deck.
Attachment:
idx236.jpg
idx236.jpg [ 37.67 KiB | Viewed 2840 times ]


Turned over and a fold put in to it,
Attachment:
idx237.jpg

Fitted in place and glued down, now you can see where the fold went.

With this method you could plate a modern ship if you took your time, and would look effective.

Hi Guys, Middle-watch sent in a working party and got a lot of decks painted, and Kenny's 5th turret, so we can now continue in a small way to start work on the 2 smoke stacks.

First we have our litho plate, green on the back, all the marking out is done on the back so when scribed it is raised on the front.
Attachment:
idx251.jpg
idx251.jpg [ 30.75 KiB | Viewed 2840 times ]


We have the litho rolled up on a small tube, when released it will spring out larger, we also have the lining of the stack, you can see the difference in size.
Attachment:
idx252.jpg
idx252.jpg [ 41.32 KiB | Viewed 2840 times ]


One lining fitted and glued, one rolled up.
Attachment:
idx253.jpg
idx253.jpg [ 41.71 KiB | Viewed 2840 times ]


The first one placed in position.
Attachment:
idx254.jpg
idx254.jpg [ 52.72 KiB | Viewed 2840 times ]


The second one placed in position and checked they are in the upright vertical position with a small set square
Attachment:
idx255.jpg
idx255.jpg [ 59.48 KiB | Viewed 2840 times ]


Bow shot, note the only red deck on the command bridge deck has been painted.
Attachment:

Ron I like the idea of you compiling a book on your builds you have the right approch and ability to make the difficult seem easy. In a sentence go for it. There are publishers out their that would most cetainly be interested.

Ron, and all at Modelwarships, thank you for welcoming me into the world of Modelwarships.

Yes I am a keeping a daily watch on your progress on the scratchbuilt model of the IRON DUKE. Incidentally both my grandfathers served onboard the HMS IRON DUKE - my paternal was a steward whilst my maternal was a professional musician who was onboard during the Battle of Jutland. Both my grandparents are following your construction of the ID but from a different plain - both have passed away many many years before I was born.

Your model is a superb, enchanting and a neat model: it is a mirror image of the real ID. Your step-by-step explanation of the various constructional methods supported by the clear pictorial content is a coverage encouraging novice model makers as well as those experienced to start, or change over, to scratch model building. Scratch building gives us the added opportunity of constructing models rarely available in kit form apart from the high level satisfaction. In addition I have to support others who are in full agreement that your works should be published. Should you decide upon this route I assure you that I will be one of your readers.

Besides photographing warships calling at our Grand Harbour, I am also a keen scratch model builder. I have the following waterline models in different state of construction:

1/96 Hunt Clas Escort HMS Cottesmore: awaiting repairs for damage inflicted by my son when a toddler;
1/96 A69 French Corvette: hull and superstructure complete: awaiting fitting out;
1/140 Leander Class Frigate HMS Bacchante F69: hull and superstructure complete: undergoing fitting out;
1/100 Ton Class Minesweeper: Hull and bridge structure substantially complete also undergoing fitting out;
1/100 Tripartite Class Minehunter: Hull being readied as master for mould purposes. My intention is to construct various Tripartites in service with the various navies.

Admiral Ron please keep up the good work going - I shall continue to watch closely on the ongoing progress.

Best Regards to you and all at Modelwarships.
Noel

Hi Guys, We will carry on after we were so rudely interrupted, we are going to make the stanchions that hold the look out post in place. Also the blacksmiths work shop and the main derrick support.

First we mark out on a piece of wood the shape we require. Then I cut and bent at the bottom some brass, a little thicker than the litho plate.
Attachment:
idx283.jpg
idx283.jpg [ 41.52 KiB | Viewed 2840 times ]


Then I cut some strips of litho and super glued them in place. Next I cut all the strengthening sections. Starting in the middle, I again super glued the oblongs in place. Then along the top and bottom.
Attachment:
idx286.jpg
idx286.jpg [ 52.84 KiB | Viewed 2840 times ]


When set hard they were bent over a roll of cardboard to form the shape.
Attachment:
idx287.jpg
idx287.jpg [ 62.03 KiB | Viewed 2840 times ]


They were then glued in place and painted.
Attachment:
idx288.jpg
idx288.jpg [ 53.53 KiB | Viewed 2840 times ]


Now we come to the blacksmiths workshop. I cut out all the parts required, all measurements are doubled from my 1:192 scale drawings.
Attachment:
idx289.jpg

The structure placed in position.
Attachment:
idx292.jpg

Next I drilled a hole though the roof, the base, the deck and fitted a large section of round brass.
Attachment:
idx293.jpg

This is the main upright for the boat cranes, you can see it in the background on the drawings.

Hi Guys, I am going to start on the fighting tops.

This time I am using Evergreen plasticard, I first mark out the shape of the top of the supports. Then I drill in to each corner and cut out each section with a #11 blade.

Hi Guys, we continue with the fighting top.

This is the very last structure on the fighting top the observation tower.
Attachment:
idx324.jpg
idx324.jpg [ 29.65 KiB | Viewed 2840 times ]


I showed the bottom part of this last night, I have put in the supports and formed the roof, this was done out of litho plate, placed over a hollow tube and with a handle of a file rubbed it round and round till it gave the con-curved shape, it was then glued in place.
Attachment:
idx325.jpg
idx325.jpg [ 41.79 KiB | Viewed 2840 times ]


The whole structure cleaned up and painted matt black.
Attachment:
idx326.jpg
idx326.jpg [ 30.23 KiB | Viewed 2840 times ]


Placed in position, note the tripod has been painted black down to the correct level.
Attachment:

idx327.jpg [ 45.79 KiB | Viewed 2840 times ]


You know the old saying, we all make mistakes, :lol_3: :lol_3: well while I was looking at the drawings I noticed I had missed out a small cabin that fitted around the main tripod, :lol_3: well how do I fit it. I made it in two halves.
Attachment:
idx328.jpg
idx328.jpg [ 21.88 KiB | Viewed 2840 times ]


Then fit it round the mast, the tricky part was to get the roof on. I drilled a hole large enough to fit round the main tripod and cut though at the back and slip it round in place :jump_1: :jump_1:

Hi Guys, Not a lot tonight, I just want to show you some nice P/E from my friend Gordon Brooks, it is 1/96 scale ladders, but he does do smaller.

Overall view of ladders, also you may notice a slight difference to the fighting top, the angle strengtheners under star fish have been trimmed to a sharper angle, all 6, I got a PM from Jim B saying they were more tampered than what mine were. So Jim I have altered them, like I told Jim, when your building a scale R/C model you have to build things stronger, because they soon get knocked and damaged, some time you have to compromise. :jump_1: :jump_1: :thumbs_up_1:

enjoy, ARH :wave_1: :wave_1: :thumbs_up_1:
