Added handles & latches to the engine room cover, latches are small very hard to see, quick primer coat to prep for clean-up sanding Made handles & deck brackets for the 20 MM ammunition boxes, boxes and lids are in the building stage. Also my thanks to Charles very good doczx1.JPGzx2.JPGzx3.JPG

Finally finished the 20 mm ammo lockers, ready for the primer. It took 5 days of trial & error, at times it was a real pain to get the right look, keeping something close to scale. Overall, I’m happy with them, which in the end is all that matters. My thanks to all who sent plans, ideas & picturesa1.JPGa3.JPGa4.JPGa5.JPGa6.JPG

My attempt to scratch build the 20mm gun horn, due to the noise, the 20 mm sits near the engine room, so the horn was used to notify the gunners. The horn is small, and I was working from pictures. took about a week I got it as close as my skill level will allow Still I think its a nice touch . and one you committed to detailing, h1.JPGhg2.JPGh3.JPGh4.JPG your all in

While waiting for a parts shipment, I decided to rework several areas, as with most builders, you look at something long enough, improve on a certain skill set, or both you always seem to find something you could do better. So I reworked the starboard ammo locker, the bridge spotlight locker, and the bridge starboard door. Time will tell if I keep them as is.q1.JPGq2.JPGq3.JPG

Built the Jack staff and Stern flag mast, pretty simple, they will look good with the pullies, lanyards and flags added. Scratch build Bridge search light, it took some work to get it right, only concern is the turn knob might be a little big ?? if so minor fix . Will add the glass & reflective inside after finale painting.sp6.JPGsp4.JPGsp3.JPGsp22.JPG

First my hopes & prayers go out to everyone during theses unsure times. The craft new all love seems rather secondary. One of my suppliers is from Spain which is closed for shipping, I’m still able is get deliveries from Cornwall boats for now, will stock up from them and work from back stock for the rest.

Started laying out the control panel area, the test fit went well, Made the throttle control box, it’s still rough, needs some smoothing but its close. All in all, after it will work just fine.z3.JPGz2.JPG

Made the foot rails from Mahogany, with guidance from Jeff D pt103.com I followed a cross of his drawings & Dumas patterns. Given the fragile scale here I will soak in water then heat bend them in place. Being very careful not to snap them.rf1.JPG

Thanks,
Jeff D is leading source in the PT Boat world, He has been a good friend and a great help with research long before I started the build. His 3D parts are pretty amazing
