Happy New Year!
Martin has kindly sent these pictures
Of his latest submarine build
As was seen being tested in last month's newsletter
It is a type IIB U boat
amazingly realistic rust on the plating!
Chris Jenner shared these pictures of progress, marking out the waterline on his Huntsman
setting up level
drawing a line with the aid of a laser level
masking up having cut thin strips of masking tape
and the result - probably not actually sprayed on the dining table!
They say that 3D printing is a hobby in its own right. However, it can be very useful resource in the world of model boats.
Ken Pond has now joined the world of 3D printing having bought a Creality 6
John K's Creality Ender 2 (ex of Chris Monk) is still going strong.
Drawing an object in 3D takes time and the result doesn't always come out right first time....
......but once done, It is a good investment in time to produce many similar items like these 14 fenders for John B
and these deck fittings for Fairey Marine boats, all printed in ABS
The finished attempt at a 1:8 Lofrans Royal anchor winch, ready to be fitted to the model
This month's video recalling when we could go boating is of Mark's voice controlled boat
See you on Zoom!
