Boston Typhoon, build log.
work re-starting on this project very soon....
well i desided to do a photo log of this build. i started it last year and got the hull almost complete. its a slow build this one. using more g.r.p and wood parts than other kits i have done. there are also 100's of metal cast parts.
i have now made a good start on the super-structure. its made of 3 g.r.p pieces, plastic shaped pipe for the funnel and lots of metal bits. i havent yet put the port-hole glass in yet, that will be last after painting. in these pics it is painted in undercoat.
the main trawl winch.
started painting the top.
well i have put a few more hours into it. i have just about finished the main winch. i have built the fore-mast, this is supplied as a piece of dowl and has to be tapered down to fit the rings that go round it at diffrent hights. a slow job!
slowly getting on with the painting.
yet more built, the rear mast, rear gallows and a few other bits.
well i have desided that i am going to not name her the boston typhoon, but the bracon glen.
the bracon glen was the sister ship to the boston typhoon, they where both registered out of fleetwood. the bracon glen's reg number was FD 283.
as the kit does not include the name transfers it is no problem getting others made. i am having them made up in white vinyl.
