Good evening from 'The Dockyard'.

A few more details were added to the Engine Room this week.

The attached photo shows an overhead valve handwheel, made from the supplied kit, painted and ready for fitting. The two white metal gauges were sourced from a model railway supplier and were painted in their respective red for port, green for starboard colours.

The first of the attached images shows the dial face for the previous mentioned gauges. This was cropped in Paint 3D, resized in Powerpoint, printed, then covered with a thin, transparent plastic film to simulate glass and finally, as seen in the second image, two were made and fitted. I also added 0.3mm diameter solder to replicate wires.

The attached images show some paperwork as i wanted to add something to the noticeboard and also to the desk. I sourced a couple of relevant images, again, cropped in Paint 3D, resized in Powerpoint, printed and fixed with double sided tape.

That concludes the update for this week. Next week should see the final part to building the Engine Room. I have to weather and fit the exhaust pipe to the starboard diesel engine, paint, position and fit two crew members and a final oil/rust application to any areas i feel require it.

Thanks for looking in, have a great weekend and happy modelling!BigGrin

Regards,
Phil W.

What more can be said about your fantastic (and very long running) build of this model Phil, other than utterly amazing!

Very well done yet again. Cool ThumpUp

Good evening from 'The Dockyard'.

Thank you very much for all the comments guys, much appreciated.BigGrin

So, the final push to complete the Engine Room.

The attached photo shows the exhaust pipe fitted to the starboard diesel engine. I also added a few more rusty patches, which would of occurred due to condensation, using a rust coloured powder. Using a smoke coloured powder i toned down the colours on the diesel engine and then mixed the two powders together and applied that in different areas to the exhaust pipe.

Chief stoker and junior rate stoker on watch in the Engine Room making sure everything is ticking along. I tried to position them so that they tell a story of sorts, with the Chief operating the engines and the junior stoker conducting some valve ops. The Engine Room is now complete!!!!!!!!BigGrin BigGrin LOL LOL Flapper Flapper
