Re: HMS Fencer installed with handrails on the sponsons
« Reply #171 on: 01 March 2020, 05:11:03 »
Hi all the Rc model ship captains;
Here you see are the pics of the side sponsons installed with the handrails along with the edges
of the sponsons.
It took comparatively much time to set the rails as the edges were curved, which caused me nervous
to bend neatly the wires and pass them through the holes of many stanchions. :(
But it is indispensable and essential work to add more realism to the model ship,especially for the warships.

Hi all;
It's a fine day today and it became 22 degrees C by outdoor temperature around this area.
It means the season is becoming gradually good for model boat sailing.! ::DD
I will be very busy with having and welcoming this kind of temperature.! :D

Hi Tjorven;

Thank you so much for your kind comment. :grin1:
Our country has also beeeen suffering from notorious corona virus
after it was found.
But it is said here that going to such places as jammed with many people is not allowed
to avoid the infection from the virus,while open-air space as shown in the above lake side
is not generally prohibited to go....
In this sense,I am happy to be able to go to the lake for sailing whenever I have such spare time
as to go. ::DD

Under the blue sky....She sails on the lake today too...??  :D
