Title: Lockdown Challenge 2020
Post by: 1-32 on March 25, 2020, 06:13:18 AM
Hi all a new project
Lockdown challenge 2020
Put away your knitting and remotes we are all going into isolation,  let's do a bit of modeling and baking nice bread.
I and a good friend of this site have a mutual interest in river traders of the Congo River in Nigeria this is my version of one of those in 1/35 scale based on his excellent photo reference. It is not an exact copy of a steam-powered paddle steamer it is how it want to build it. My time frame is 3 months a very big job for 3 months material -anything paint finishes well let's see .
length 200 mm width120 mm height 118 mm.
cheers Kim

You need to sculpt models of Humphery Bogart and Katherine Hepburn to man the boat. -- Russ

I wonder if there are plans out there for the original "African Queen" boat.
That would be fun to see... and build.

Thats Nice - Have you seen Murphy's War -Peter O'Toole  some lovely old Congo style stuff with dredger type boat with thatched roof workshop on board the deck  - loads of inspiration
Myself started a out of the box kit builds - but it did not last long - backwoods logging stuff a converted Liberty truck (war surplus ) in 1/35th

Funny I have just seen Bogart in a detective story in LA great scriptwriting tough lifestyle Camel plain cigarettes and a bottle of Gin.
My little boat would have been used on lakes or slow-running rivers and would have been built up using a collection of miss-matched items like the boiler wood-fired.Cargo would have been stored on the roof or a barge attached, sleeping accommodation -hammocks.
Because of its low water line, the hull is not a feature so I will start construction with the water wheel and engine room  . The engine room area will be made in one piece and placed in position when the hull is completed.
Please remember this is my design and there will be many flaws when viewed by a professional just live with it OK.
Thanks, everybody for your comments
cheers

This is one of the best bits of inspiration I have seen in some time - just love the drawings and the ideas - sod the perfectionist and the rivet counters
if it looks feasible do it (for all you rivet counters feasible means From the Oxford Dic' abel to be done)
 Or as I have always called it "Freelance Prototype modelling" The inspiration you have given me has come at a good time just getting over a long term of Burning out - so last night out came the Murphy's War Dvd and tonight its the African Queen
Thanks again for the inspiration

Cheers Barney what is the saying Everybody to there own -something like that.
The boiler?
A friend pointed out if I used a vertical boiler instead of the one in the drawing it would give me more space on the lower deck a good point. When I get to that stage I will consider that but to my eye, it is a balance of spaces or volumes that get preferences and this style of boiler works very well in that space.
Cheers


Title: Re: Lockdown Challenge 2020
Post by: Lawton Maner on March 26, 2020, 12:19:35 PM
A vertical boiler would give you some space to stack firewood on the deck as well as a bit of cargo.  Every boat like this also needs a dog.

Looks like a fun project, the drawings are just great and inspirational. Australia had (somewhat larger) home-built wooden paddlers using Marshall engines, there are quite a few preserved at Echuca on the Murray River. I remember having dinner on the outside rear deck of one after dark captivated by the sparks coming out of the stack.  A bottle of Shiraz goes very well with the smell of wood smoke.

 I'm have a somewhat "groundhog day" trying to get some bushes on the 1/19th scale model diorama look right.  I make them, go to bed, think about them - feel thy are not satisfactory , go back into the modelling room next morning and start all over again. I'm OK with rust and rivets but bushes just don't have those!!   Oh well - here we go again.

Les


Title: Re: Lockdown Challenge 2020
Post by: 1-32 on March 27, 2020, 06:32:21 AM
well, good luck everybody.
Here is the first bit the paddles frames 46 mm wide and the complete unit 68 mm wide. At first, I thought that I would only need the 2 end ones but looking at it needs on in the middle also just to make it look structurally sound.
Cheers.

Post by: Lawton Maner on March 27, 2020, 02:47:38 PM
There is a bit of an engineering mistake in the proposal drawing.  The cranks for the paddle wheel need to be outboard of the supports so that they can revolve.  Otherwise 1/2 turn and the whole thing will lock up with a terrible noise.  But then the laws of physics might work differently when standing on the ceiling.

Lawton, you are quite right about the crank assembly here are is another drawing looking into that. From here I will do A more detailed drawing of the steam power unit. The steam chests need to be further away from the paddle.

moving along the steam chests fiddly both in there construction and design, in the end, they are a freelance but they work in there looks. Now I can go ahead and start the linkages and layout the engine area.

Hi all moving along I hope everybody is staying safe crazy times.
My lockdown challenge is moving along the wooden deck is laid and the airbrush has been bought out to give the paddlewheel a nice shade of red, Next the engine room will be assembled and painted this will be a drop in unit cheers

What will you use to hide the bow joint? Many of us can learn a lot from you when it comes to boats. -- Russ


Title: Re: Lockdown Challenge 2020
Post by: 1-32 on April 08, 2020, 11:30:54 PM
hi all.
How many of us use an airbrush most likely, Chuck and Volker I also really like it generally I find it painful but when it all lines up great my paddle wheel was airbrushed maybe the whole boat will be airbrushed we will see.?
Russ yes the bow joint I will cover it with a piece of styrene that will be fashioned to look like a metal reinforcing strip to protect the wooden hull. I use the same idea on all my overlapping joints usually with rivets. You can't really fill these sorts of joints as the filler always cracks.
cheers

Happy Easter everybody.
very quiet I suppose it is the same everywhere.
Here is another little piece of the assembled engine this will most likely change a little with the addition of hangers and other bits and pieces also the tops of the valves on the steam lines will disappear into the floor above.
The most recent example of really good machinery painting was Robert G and his sawmill but hey there are so many good painters my efforts are adequate and the weathering usually takes 1 hour. My process is undercoat top coat all water-based washers for the weathering and a bit of airbrushing.
cheers.

Happy easter, Kim. Nice weathering.
I have a small model of a pulling boat, useable for HO scale, that I want to someday
add a tiny steam engine and boiler to commemorate the full size steam launch
my son once started to build. He got a used refrigeration compressor and plans for
converting it to a steam engine and experimented with various ways to build a boiler.
He had it running on compressed air before going on to do other things, I want to build
a model capturing the spirit of his efforts. Your project here dmontrates it can be omething
that looks good, but also is fun.

Russ my birthday was crap this virus pandemic has put everybody into a spin nobody visits anymore no more cool presents and to make it worse I was not supposed to be here in Sydney. I really don't know how the world is going to recover economically.

Hi Bill how big is your son's boat sound like a great project? Kim

Kim, It was going to be between 16-18 ft. Alas it has been shelved to make room for RR photography at night, a modular layout, fixing up acouple apartments and more.
The steam engine he was working on was estimated to be able to produce about 3 hp. My model will commemorate the effort that went into th project, starting with no background in
either steam power or boat building, but learning very quickly along the way.

Kim,

this assembly looks very well. I like the appearance of the not so heavily worn boiler. And the red color of that stern wheel is really something  :). I don't really know anything about boats. Whenever I see a ship with a boiler over water line I can't imagine those things wouldn't tipple over due to the high barycenter.

I'm looking forward - thanks for posting.

Volker


Title: Re: Lockdown Challenge 2020
Post by: 1-32 on April 16, 2020, 04:55:16 PM
Good point Volker the way I look at it that there should be only one paddle holey in the water at once too many would create too much drag. Once you set that up it will give you the centerline of the steam chest. The center of gravity should be near the bottom of the hull and in this case, it is flatboat and quite wide it should work. The area that is causing me concern is the wheelhouse area and fitting it all in without it looking clumsy.
Hoping that all is well in Germany.
cheers


Title: Re: Lockdown Challenge 2020
Post by: Rail and Tie on April 16, 2020, 08:48:02 PM
Loving the detail as this goes along.  Maybe a set of "Duck Rudders" added aft of the Paddles would be in order for those tight maneuvers and steering in reverse. Would add some more detail in the back of the boat.


Title: Re: Lockdown Challenge 2020
Post by: 1-32 on April 16, 2020, 09:20:08 PM
yes, a couple of big rudders people ask what is the purpose of such a boat.? There is a small cargo area behind the wheelhouse but its main purpose is a tug imagine a couple of barges behind going up the Congo River.


Title: Re: Lockdown Challenge 2020
Post by: 1-32 on April 28, 2020, 12:55:32 AM
Afternoon all how are we going looks like we are heading for a very economically challenging time anyway.
My challenge is now becoming more pacific in its style and location. In the first picture, it shows a river paddlewheel tug operating on one of the large rivers in NSW Australia. This area is tropical and the prize is Australian cedar timber once common now very exotic perfect for my build. The next is the wheelhouse and last is the water supply tank which is located behind the wheelhouse construction styrene and wood weathering oil paints.
cheers.

Topdeck- Funnel, Water tank, and the last photo are of the steering gear in the last post the water tank was round now square.Lets see now a bit over 2 months lots of fun in a crazy time.I have been thinking that this paddlewheel tender needs a barge of sorts yes , I definitely know the shape of that accessorize.

Kim,

I wonder if a tug boat wouldn't have a strengthened bow for pushing batges or so?

What is going to be the ship's name? Corona? Okay, I go stand in the corner  ;D.

Volker


Title: Re: Lockdown Challenge 2020
Post by: Lawton Maner on May 20, 2020, 08:37:00 AM
Since it is a paddle wheeler, it should be a pusher boat rather then a tug.  one thing to consider is that the stern of the barge can be notched to receive the bow of the pusher. 


Title: Re: Lockdown Challenge 2020
Post by: 1-32 on May 20, 2020, 10:35:08 AM
Morning.
Good point about the position of the barges the examples I have seen is that the barge is tied up next to the paddlewheel mother ship, personally, I think that this would be hard to control and progress would be very slow, Towing would also be hard as the ropes would get fouled in the paddlewheel so pushing is the best bet Volker you are right there needs to be something on the bow.
Lawton the crew members'
 names are Clyde, Clancy, and Mabel there is also a dog and maybe a cat now it is getting crowded .

Hi
It is tiny in 1/35 scale.
10 1/4 inches or 260 mm long. This does not include the rudders.
5 1/2 inches or 135 mm wide.
6 1/4 inches or 155 mm heigh.
I will call it" Madel" with my late mother in mind she was born in 1916
cheers

That is one of your most charismatic models and deserves to carry your mother's name. -- Russ

Hi Russ.
. My Mum was born in 1916 some common women's names were Olive, Pearl , Lilly, Ivory, and Mabel, owners of boats were only too happy to use family names to claim ownership. Looking at the full frontal view some of those streaks need to be toned down a very light black wash should do the trick.
cheers
