Modeling a Euro pallet is so much fun, so I even built some more!

Whoa, whoa, whoa! - has the operative completed the mandatory Health and Safety Manual Handling course (Appendix B, subsection 2.1, paragraph 3)? I don't see any evidence of gloves or goggles in use here  (paragraph 5.2, subsection 12). Or Hi-vis jackets.

Is this a holiday trip?  Why are you towing a submarine FT? 

 

Submarine? WTF? If anything like it, it's only half a U boat!

It's a very nicely built wooden very speedy speedyboat!   :)

 

And the trailer is scratch built as well, apart from its wheels...

Whilst it certainly looks like a nicely built wooden very speedy speedyboat,  judging by the gaps in your clinker, once on the water and doing its speedy speedy thing it will rapidly become a submarine.

 

You don't want gaps in 'yer clinker m8.  

 

 Who would? :sleepy3:  

 

Edit; how did you build the trailer?

You guys have just reminded me of one of the two things I remember from school.... That there boat is Carvel built not Clinker...... Impressed ? Lol

FT you could posh it up a bit so it looks like one of those beautiful Riva speed boats.....

Thick layer of paint just fixed all the leaks ...

 

(I'm pleasantly surprised about how them colors worked out: I just picked the only glossy Red Humbrol , and the only glossy White Humbrol I have, and there ya go, a perfect match!)

So, in my hunt for a 1/64 (S) scale fork lift truck (I one to be able to lift my custom built 1/64pallets) I kinda failed miserably, as I had ordered a truck, 1:70 sized according to the box, but as it arrived it was much and much larger.

Somewhere between 1:16 and 1:25.

 

Failed? Well, this thing is all metal, steering rear wheels, connected to the steering wheel. The lift part goes up/down nicely in two stages, ánd it tilts ... !

All in all, a very nice model!

 

 

And so, as I'm still modeling, I decided to create pallets fitting this model ... initially, I created a 1:18 scale pallet:

 WP_20160214_15_19_45_Pro__highres_zpsolw

 

That one appeared to be a bit too large, and further research shows this truck is actually 1:25 scale.

So...

And indeed, what's next?  :shaunhb:

 

Safety warning: 
I was wearing glasses, happy about that as during the work on one of the pallets, I manage to snap the blade of my hobby knife... BANG!  ... parts flying around, one of 'm hitting my forehead, above the right hand eye. Bleedin'!

So, next I needed to replace the bladed. Opened up the container, picked out a blade ... yikes, sharp, cut my thumb! Bleedin' !

Should've worn gloves as well I guess....
