Today I fitted the anchors, traditional bumper and deck furiture.

Foredeck . . .



Afterdeck . . .



I used 24 hour epoxy, so tomorrow I should be able to secure the mooring lines and springs.

The boat/ship is so clean, it must have been just out of the builders yard.

That won't last, Sol - once I get my grubby hands on it.  :lol:

The next steps are to install the 33 LEDs in the superstructure and finish glazing the 34 windows.



The LEDs are in a roll, which can be divided into sets of three.  They are pre-ballasted so that they can be connected to 12 Volts.

The resistor wheel will now help me design a final ballast setting to get the cabin windows to look right.



It's a bit challenging to light the subject so the photo represents what I see in the room.  The bridge deck was previously ballasted, and the wheel was used to match the two.

It turned out that I need another 100 Ω; which coincidentally was the same value as for the bridge deck.
Funny about that.

Hi Max,

Long time since I've seen a resistance substitution box/wheel being used. Very useful piece of gear to have around when getting the lighting correct. Takes the guestimating out of matching the resistor to the desired LED intensity.

Absolutely, Nigel.  It doesn't take me long to get to 100 LEDs.  :roll:

As I said earlier, this kit was started by someone else who abandoned it, so I've basically had to disassemble it and start again.  A lot of the joints were put together out of square and some had come apart due to poor glue selection.

The funnels are a prime exemplar of this.  After all the work it took to straighten them, it would probably have been easier to make new ones.  Anyway, here they are . . .



The aft flying bridge has to be remade.

The deck has sagged over time, but it will pull up with the screw which goes in the tab.  The tabs will be covered by lockers fore and aft, to hide the screw heads.

That looks a candidate for a couple of BIG Seuthe Units..

Either that or put a toaster on max strength underneath and stand back...

The aft flying bridge is ready for mounting on the funnels.



The only thing I could salvage was the mast - and that needed a deal of bog and sanding.  The water canons came from http://www.floataboat.com.au - as did the stanchions.
