the figures that i have used are from Preiser (non paited) like the ones in the link below, most people know this name from model railways, they also do some 1:100 scale figures as well, some ready painted some not!

if you google with this search option you will find a few shops in the UK that sell these figures:

"Preiser detailed-figures 1:100"

mainly used in Architecture offices?

order numbers from Preiser:
74090, 190 pices unpainted, allsorts
74009, 6 pices painted (orange) mechanics

some shops do the unpainted ones in groups of six, like this german shop for example!
this is were i got my figures from:
3 figures came from part no. 124501
2 figures come from part no. 124510
3 figures come from part no. 124529
the rest landed in the bin..!!!

I have now had time to finish the Hull, all the electric is complete, the on/off switch is hidden under one of the lockers on the for deck and under the other locker is the connection for charging the batteries.

I have used two 12v 4 Amp gel batteries to give me 12v 8 Amps a lot of running time when considering the 12v Buhler motor only uses around 1 Amp at maximum.

the for and aft masts have a 1mm x 3mm SMD LED installed in the hollowed out White metal fittings that came with the Kit.

all I have to do now is complete the superstructure.

If anyone needs any advice on this Model then please don't hesitate to ask!

here we go then, with some more Photo's and how i made the Window Frames, plus a photo of the SMD LED's and the respective wire used to keep track of which side of the LED is the plus(+) pole

the Window Frames were made out of brass tubeing that what milled down a little to give a wall thinkness of 0.2mm and then cut off so i had a load of rings.

the rings were then drawn over a jig that reshaped the rings from round to rectangle

Hi Colin,

Thanks for sharing these pics. I think they're very useful.

I did not start building my Liz Terkol yet. This is probably still some months away. But by reading your postings some questions came up:

- The main deck of such tanker usually is not much above the waterline. Assuming the cover of the midsection (on which all the tubes are mounted) remains removable how did you make sure that it is (more or less) water proof? Would you mind sharing a close up?

- Would you know the RAL colour codes that should be used?

Thanks for your tips.

Kind Regards,

FJF

Hello FJF,

i have a convertion tablle for the Humbrol numbers to RAL, i'll have to check on the Humbrol numbers that i used, then i'll post them later...
one that i do remember of the top of my head is the Deck colour is:
Humbrol No. 20 = RAL 3000

as for the Main Tank Deck, yes the hole of the Tank Deck is removeable on my Lis
of course unlike all real tankers, were the Tank Deck is at water line

basicly i followed the instructions in the manuel, the hole of the Tank Deck is about 5 mm higher than expected, around the Holes in the hiden deck i places 5 mm high plastic also interlocking on the underside of the Main removeable tank deck (insted of using wood as discribed in the Instructions) thats why in the privious photo of the Tank Deck there is a 5 mm side panel in Green!

the photo shows the underside of the Main Tank Deck (Photo from Instructions) or CD Available from Deansmarine.
