G'day John

Beautiful work on this incredible model. I'm very interested in seeing this trough. Are you going to put the full masks on or just the cut-off masks?
I'm planning to do this on the Royal Caroline kit that you are doing. Just waiting on the response from ZHL if I can buy all the fittings and carvings etc from them.
As you may know Greg Ashwood and I have been planning this for a year or so on the other forum.
My version will have the cut-off masks because I will be cutting away some of the channels and chain plates.

I'm not sure yet Greg, I'm building this one for my daugter, so it depends whether she wants a big case or a medium one, :lol: :lol: :lol:

I have to make some gratings for the upper decks and also I needed some for my River tug, so I decided to make these next

I had already made a sled for my Proxxon saw, so I decided to use this to make the gratings.

the gratings were going to have a spacing of 1.5mm ( the width of the saw blade ) so I cut a strip of hard wood

1.5mm x 1.5mm and CA glued it to the sled exactly 1.5mm from the blade, you can see it just to the left of the letter X.

Then I took a strip of wood that I had cut to approx 25mm wide x approx 4.5mm deep, and I pushed it up against the strip glued to the sled, turned the saw on and passed it over the blade.

then I put the slot that had been cut over the strip of glued wood and repeated the process, then I put the second slot over the glued piece and cut another slot, then just kept repeating it till all the length of wood had been slotted.

Then I took some thicker wood ( 50mmx25mmx75mm ) and laid it long ways on the sled and did the same to them, this is the first cut.

I then changed the 1.5mm blade for a .5mm one for slicing off the grating strips, making sure that the gap was 1.5mm.

G'day John
Excellent work mate. The result is very 'grate'.
Those Proxxon saws are brilliant, I've got one as well.

Hi John

Excellent work as always and I know I have said this many times, I like when modelers show how a more unusual part of the build is show and how it was achieved.

Cheers

Great work, John!
I also make my on gratings although without a sled so it is a bit different. For SoS I made 1mm size gratings, soon to be fitted.
