Håkan,

It’s good to hear from you. Your ship is looking good. I’ll be interested in seeing the results of your remotoring.

Great to see you post Håkan!

The ship looks good, and a reasonable price....($25 US).

Hi Guys
here are some photos on the remotoring. I use an inexpensive motor I bought on Ebay. The old noisy gearbox is replaced by a new one which I have made in house with the exception of the mod 0.3 gears that I bought from this source:
https://www.sol-expert-group.de/1-87-model-building/Screws-and-cog-wheels/Snails-M0-2-and-M0-3:::48_98_70.html

The housing is 3D printed on my Anycubic Photon with a strong resin from Phrozen called Rock black. It takes screws very well and can be tapped.


The motor with flywheel


The gearbox. The bearings I also bought from the same source as the gears.




The boiler assembly painted and with decaling started


The tender with Colorado Midland kind of style decals. It looks a bit dirty which comes from the decal setting solutions. It will be cleaned prior to final clear coating.


The smokebox

Next on the to do list is the final decaling, clear coat and then assembly.

Thanks Carl! Yes its cheap and a great starting point. The instructions are awful though but I found some plans on Internet which will help especially for the rigging.

Thanks George, Bob, Bill and Mike! I’m happy you like it. Today I put on the last decals then its time for the final clear coat.

Hakan,
It seems you have been keeping your modeling chair warm turning out more excellent models. I love the schooner, how are you planning to mount the hull in the layout? Is it going to be a dry-dock model or will you cut a hole in the water to accept your vessel?
My layout now has ~ 7 vessels, all waterline models, 7 steamers, 3 sail, and a few smaller craft. As with any waterfront scene, they add life and great interest to the layout.

Thanks Greg! I plan to dig a big hole in my harbour surface. I contemplated to make it a water hull model but it felt like a lot of work so my thoughts are to cut a hole instead.

That is quite a fleet! Would love to see some photos of them.

Below are some progress photos of the deck. I covered the hatches with paper simulating cloth. The capstan is 3D printed. The brown paint which is too dark at the moment and will be weathered is Games Workshop Contrast paint. I thought it had a color close to tared wood. It came out a little shiny and was difficult to drybrush. So it will get some matt varnish before I continue. I also started on the bowsprit

Hakan,
You are doing a bang up job on that schooner. I like the detail, texture and color choices.

Lookin' good!
Greg R.

PS I will try to add some pics of the "fleet" on another thread.
