Hi Alan BigGrin thanks for your komment

now i have not tried to put the model in the water yet. I hope it is just right on the waterline. and if so, then it may well be that I change my mind and will sail with it - now we must see, but first it must be painted



I found online a restoration project of a junior boat and borrowed this picture - it is fun to line up the model with the right boat.

Hello All BigGrin
I have painted the freeboard, I hardly thought it would dry again, so I had to turn up the heat. during the wait i had to find useful to take care of - i had to make an anchor for the model of course. And it will naturally be a umbrilla anchor - I make wood molds and mold it in the tin.







At last dry painted.Cool

He Alan. Thank you for your words. Yes I have a close relationship with this model, since I myself have had such a Junior boat back in 1986 - 1990. it was really fun to sail and it was paradoxical also what made you part with it again because you wanted to move on to something bigger and more sailing

Hello everyone
I have had time for a little model building and have started to change the roof it is put in two layers of veneer. in the wait and a little bit in between, I have built a beer box for the anchor chain and it has also become a pair of mooring cleats. so little is being built.





1. layer roof is on and sanded redy for nex layer .



2. layer rof on its way .

hi Alan, Andy, Mark and Terry. BigGrin BigGrin BigGrin BigGrin
Thanks for your kind words. I appreciate it a lot.
I search the web for photos of the junior boat and there are also many but not all are equally good to be inspired by but this here gives many ideas about what is still lacking about shelter down below deak .



one paddle, one bat lamp, one or more rubber buckets must be added. -- it will come Cool

Hi Samson, you're doing a great job and i love all the details. Did you make, then drink, miniature bottles of Carlsberg to empty the box for your ropes?LOL

Hi Phil W BigGrin

no fun with 50 1:10 beers . you hartly can taste it Flapper




You actually have a point there. Of course, there should be 3 empty bottles at 1:10 in a plastic bucket, that's how I remember it from my own junior boat, or full-figured whether you are starting or ending your boating in the pre-styled model.

I also have one here and now pictured by the model - I am about to grind the ruf and the deak for the final varnish.



Cheers Jens

hi - I'm done with the roof and given it varnish
I now struggle to make blocks that are small and that work with a running wheel in the middle. I try to make them in brass. unfortunately I am not satisfied. if the model is to be sailed with then it must work better. and if it is only for decoration then they can also look better.in still on the project .Confused







all for now.

Hi CaptBirdseye and Graeme BigGrin BigGrin
Thank you for looking in and giving a comment. I appreciate it.
I thought about whether I could sail with the model and whether remote control is an option. I know that "someone" before me has tried to sail with it. and therefore has changed the keel - first by drilling holes in the lead keel - as this was too heavy obviously and then made the keel deeper - for the sake of stability. I never tried to launch the model before I changed the keel back to the original.
In other words, I try to launch the model in a small tub to see its buoyancy and stability. I think the model is waterproof enough to do the experiment.





as I was well aware, it is too heavy on the water because tin is heavier than iron.
I have to give up the idea of sailing with it. I still want to build sails and rich as if I could sail with it - mostly the idea that I can hoist and lower sails if I want or take the mast off and on again if I want to. It also means that it must be a little ruby and not exactly perfect. a precursor to a next model that can then be remotely controlled.
