Naomi South Australian Fishing Boat 1/24 scal2 by neptune

Post by neptune » Tue Jun 13, 2017 12:12 am

This is a small fishing boat that was built for the same family as the Mini Sims, see my other build log,
 
I built this model for the same gentleman that I built the model of the Mini Sims for, only this time he did'nt have any plans for her, however he did have the dimensions and photo's of the original, so I built from these, I enlarged the photo's to the size of that the model would be and worked from them.
 
The model is built the same way as the other small models I have built, ie, hull carved from solid pieces of Jelutong,


starboard side after carving and sanding, shown sitting on photo, I did'nt show the carving process as it is shown on my other builds.

I used my Proxxon milling machine to mill out the areas for the cabin etc, you can also see the plywood spacer between the two hull halves, this pic was taken before adding stem keel and stern post.

 Next up was the propeller, I had a small one that would fit but wanted to try out my MF70 Proxxon mill

I started with a square piece of brass plate and drilled a hole in the middle to hld it tight and to also connect to the shaft after shaping.

She sure looks good in the case. The machine parts you made from scratch are inspiring.
Happy modeling,
Gary Maple
